pole-fed-cleaningA Pole Window Cleaning System allows most windows to be cleaned from the ground level with extended telescopic poles. This means that there are no wobbly ladders or steps needed, eliminating the danger of slipping or falling, making cleaning quick and easy. A Pole Window Cleaning System peterborough makes cleaning quick and easy, solving the problems of algae, bird droppings and dirt build up on high and low level windows.

The Pole Window Cleaning System are very rigid and easily controlled, making window cleaning safe and easy. There are different heads and accessories which are interchangeable to achieve the best cleaning results. The cotton cloths will produce a superior window clean on glass or polycarbonate compared to the brush heads. The cotton heads will have far greater contact on the surface area, helped by the weight of the de-ionised water used to clean.

New Working At Height Regulations

In 2005 new working at height regulations came into play, which brought into question whether ladders should be used when cleaning windows. In line with these regulations, water fed pole window cleaning are obvious alternative methods which could often be used to avoid the risk of working at height. Working from a ladder is a very risky business, meaning water fed pole window cleaning systems are here to stay, despite the common myth that water fed pole window cleaning peterborough systems are not good for domestic work.

Water fed pole window cleaning systems are suitable for domestic applications. If you work with the pole system housed in a van, then a 100m hose reel will reach most houses in a small cul-de-sac. If the domestic houses are scattered, then a portable trolley or backpack system is more suitable. Once the operator has developed their skills, any extra time spent setting up the window cleaning equipment is more than compensated by the time gained in cleaning the windows.

The thought of squirting windows with pure water from a garden hose pipe attached to a telescopic pole with a brush of the end of it does not sound convincing. However, not to have to use any chemicals or detergents is a great benefit and will increase your green credentials. The pure water used allows windows to be cleaned remarkably well by brushing off the dirt with a soft bristled brush and at the same time the dirt is rinsed away. Once the window dries the customer will see that the windows are spotless, all the minerals and impurities having been removed from the water during its purification process.


Of course, another benefit is the privacy that the client gains. Cleaning upstairs windows from the ground using a water fed pole window cleaning peterborough system means that you won’t be climbing ladders and accidentally peering in the windows whilst cleaning them. Pole system cleaning also ensures that no damage is caused to the building, which has been known with traditional ladders or cradles.  Under the current health and safety legislation, many businesses will only use operators who use the water fed pole window cleaning peterborough system.

window_cleaning3On the vast majority of window cleaning, on both residential and commercial properties, water fed pole system is far more efficient than the manual approach using a ladder. The equipment just needs to be taken off the van and is instantly read to use, due to the fact that the systems are ladderless, and can still reach up to 6 stories, the time spent cleaning windows is significantly reduced. On average you can expect a water fed pole window cleaning peterborough service to be approximately 30% faster on residential window cleaning while up to a massive 50% faster on any commercial properties.
