Exterior Window Cleaning
How does the pole system work?
With world leading carbon fibre poles, virtually every window is now accessible, including those above conservatories. We stay at ground height meaning privacy for upstairs rooms, and no more holes in the lawn from the ladder. Wet soft brushes loosen dirt on the glass and frame and then pure deionised water is pumped to the window to rinse the glass and frame which will dry to clean and smear free - guaranteed.
Two separate technologies, reverse osmosis and resin beads, purify water from a typical local reading of 120 ppm (parts per million) down to 0 ppm. It means no need for detergents. Soap attracts dirt, and soap residue from traditional window cleaning does give something for dirt to be attracted to. With no detergents used and the frames being cleaned each time we find windows stay looking good for far longer between cleans. We are happy to clean windows to a height of 35ft, typically 3 stories high.
Are there any disadvantages with the water fed pole system?
Any system has its plus and minus points. We carry deionised water so the van needs to be parked ideally on your drive, or close to property, to facilitate reeling out the hoses.
If your windows have been cleaned traditionally in the past, or are new to window cleaning, it can take up to three cleans to remove detergent buildup or trapped dirt in rubber seals and around the edges of the windows. Occasionally this can lead to a run down on the first or second clean. If this happens let us know and we will reclean the window.
How often do you come?
We work on a 4 weekly schedule. Generally most customers find having their windows cleaned 4 weekly suits them. If a less regular clean would suit you better, any multiple of 4 weeks is no problem. Some customers have their windows cleaned every fortnight and as long as we are in the area we are happy to accommodate this too.
Does rain make much difference?
Rain is essentially pure water, being distilled by the sun, and it has a very low level of impurities, so cleaning windows in the rain won't make a difference to the finished result. If you have any concerns, please let us know, and we'll happily come and have a look.
Do you clean flats?
We don't generally clean individual flats above the ground floor unless we also clean any flats below you, or we clean the whole block. We can reach to a second, and sometimes third floor.
Interior Window Cleaning
How does it work?
Interior windows are cleaned traditionally with an applicator and squeegee. Apart from arranging access there is nothing that needs doing in advance. We also carry the Unger professional interior cleaning kit to reach high internal windows, these include extendable poles with interchangable microfibre pads.
Many customers book an interior clean every 6 or 12 months.
A tip for in between cleans
Toddlers and pets sometimes can't resist touching the windows. Here's one answer. Mix a solution of 50/50 white vinegar and water and put it into a spray bottle. Spray onto the glass and polish off any marks with a dry microfibre cloth. It works a treat.
For existing customers we can also offer these extra services
The water fed pole system as described above is ideal for safely cleaning guttering. We find that a clean once a year keeps everything looking its best.
We have cleaned garage doors, weatherboarding, business signage, in fact any hard surface in good repair can be cleaned. See our gallery page for examples.
Specialist equipment means we can create that "just installed" look for your conservatory. Many find accessing a conservatory roof for cleaning difficult. Water fed poles excel in removing algae and debris, letting the light flood in.
We use a specialist spray to cut through grime and loosen dirt. Then soft brushes on carbon fibre poles are used to agitate the dirt and remove debris from the roof, including the cresting and finials. Pure, filtered, water is used to rinse your conservatory to a sparkling finish.
Its your choice. We can clean the roof, guttering and windows or any combination. The water fed pole system is ideal to help you make the most of what is often the best room in the house.
