Why do you use a big brush to clean my windows?

Posted on June 26, 2011 at 2:27 AM
Most of us see window cleaners from time to time as we go about our daily lives. Ladders, buckets and sponges at the ready, they've been part of the British way of life for many years. More recently, however, a new phenomenon has occurred, which has become commonly known as water fed pole (WFP) window cleaning, or pure water window cleaning.
Anyone seeing one of these "new breed" of window cleaners for the very first time, might be a little perplexed as to what is actually happening, and wonder how the windows can possibly become clean using such a method? 
The secret behind the method is in the water itself, or rather what's NOT in the water. 
Most of us aware that the water which comes out of our taps, in the UK, contains contaminants such as minerals and chemicals. You only have to look in the bottom of a well used kettle to realize this. Water fed pole window cleaners use "pure" water, from which these contaminants have been removed, to clean your windows.
Using pure water to clean your windows has two main advantages. Firstly, pure water cleans like nothing else! As there are no contaminants in the water, it's ready to dissolve dirt straight away, and carry it away from your windows and frames. Secondly it can be left to dry naturally on glass, without leaving a mark, giving an amazing finish, time and time again.
Having your windows cleaned this way also has other advantages. Previously inaccessible windows, like those over a conservatory for instance, can be reached with ease. Also, it's very easy for most WFP window cleaners to clean the window frames as well as the glass. If you have white upvc window frames, you will probably appreciate the importance of this, as they can start to look very grubby if they're not cleaned on a regular basis. 
One last thing. If you prefer not to have someone peeping into your bedrooms, this is the window cleaning method for you!
The traditional way of cleaning windows, with ladders, will probably still be a round for many years, and still has it's place. Some people prefer to stick with the old ways, and as long as ladders are used safely, there's no reason to stop using them for window cleaning.   
"What's that man doing mummy?" is something I hear a lot when I'm out working. Maybe one day mum will know the answer.

As a matter of fact, visitors get overwhelmed when too much products are displayed on the site, but when you show a few select products, visitors will go ahead and shop without many worries.
