Water fed pole cleaning. How does it Work?
The Water fed pole cleaning system was introduced purely as a safety precaution. For decades, working at height, and in some cases dangerous heights, was accepted as an occupational hazard of the window cleaning industry. Water fed pole systems also known as reach and wash systems, allow windows to be cleaned from the safety of the ground using long reaching, telescopic poles which can be extended to up to 50ft. Purified water is pumped through hoses running through the pole and exits through the top of the pole where a soft bristled brush is connected.
The water is purified on board the user’s vehicle or can be purchased from a seller. All the additives are taken out of the water by using a specified resin which when the process is complete should leave a zero reading when the water is tested via a gauge. At this stage the water is ready and your windows can be cleaned.
The soft brush is used to scrub and clean the dirt off the glass, while jets of pure water rinse the window. The pure water, as it has no impurities, dries to a spot-free finish leaving no marks behind.
In some cases, mainly if you have not had your windows cleaned using this method before, your windows will have to be cleaned 2 or 3 times in one visit. This is to thoroughly clean all the dirt and off your windows and importantly your frames as previous detergents need to be completely removed. The windows are cleaned then allowed to dry then cleaned again. This process is repeated until the operative is happy.
Sometimes after the first clean you may get some spotting but on the next clean this will be eliminated.
