Window cleaners are professionals who clean commercial window installations in public buildings and establishments. Window cleaners are required to be licensed and specialized in commercial window cleaning. Window cleaners are highly specialized cleaning professionals who are hired by establishments to carry out regular window cleaning for a number of reasons. Window cleaners are required to do the job professionally and according to schedule. Master Window Cleaners are also required to have a high level of technical skill and expertise because the installation of commercial windows requires expert handling and operation.
Window cleaning, otherwise known as window washing, is the interior cleaning of architectural glass specifically used for decorative, lighting, or structural purposes. Window cleaning is carried out by a group of individuals such as window washers, cleaners, and electricians. Window washing is an essential process required to maintain the quality of glass installations in a building or establishment. Window washing, in some cases, may be required every few years or as a regular part of maintenance. Window washing is carried out routinely to minimize disruption in the productivity of employees and customers inside a building or establishment. It can also be done manually using various tools for proper access and cleaning.
Window washing is done on a large scaffold which is usually constructed of lightweight aluminum. The scaffold is supported by rows of heavy-duty steel columns. The scaffold can support a large amount of weight. In some instances, a power unit may be used to lift and position the scaffold so that window cleaners may use their own power wheelchairs for assistance.
The scaffold is made of lightweight aluminum and steel which make it easier to erect than other mechanical scaffolding systems such as rollers or hydraulic lifts. Electric cable runs through the center of the scaffold. This cable is attached to a winch that raises and lowers the scaffold. Electric motors drive the winch, which in turn moves the scaffold in either forwards or backwards direction. There are several types of window cleaners that use different techniques and tools.
Two types of Window cleaners have been introduced to the market. One type of Window cleaner is called “32 Bj” or Swedish window cleaners. It uses an electric motor to move the wheels and thus move the brush bars of the machine. It can clean any type of windows including office windows, residential windows and vehicles windows. Swedish window cleaners cost about three thousand and three hundred dollars.
The second type of Window cleaners is known as Empire State Building Window Cleaners. It uses a combination of brushes and rollers. The roller moves up and down on an axis. A series of brushes push the roller into the window, while simultaneously moving a pair of rollers to push out the dirt. It requires about eight thousand dollars for cleaning the seven floors of the Empire State Building.
