The conventional way of cleaning the windows was a tough job to do especially when you had to clean the exterior windows of your house or any commercial building. Extra effort was needed in cleaning the large windows because one could not reach the top. People used ladders to clean the top of tall windows. This task was time-consuming and dangerous as the ladder could fall anytime resulting in injuring any person. In order to eliminate this, a reach and wash system was designed. It is a new way of cleaning windows and is an innovation in the window cleaning industry.
What is a reach and wash system?
Basically, a reach and wash system enables people to clean the top of their windows from the ground by using long reaching, retractable poles. It is an easy and safe way of window cleaning and is no more a risky job. The reach and Wash system has an extendable pole and on its one end, a brush is attached. The soft-bristled brush scrubs the dirt off the glass and at the same time jet of pure water thoroughly cleans the window. Since pure water has no impurities, it leaves the window spot-free.
More efficient than traditional window cleaning methods:
As already discussed reach and wash system is an efficient and much safer way of cleaning windows. Window cleaners can easily clean with the help of an extendable pole. An important point to be discussed is that it can clean up to the height of 80ft, much more than a ladder can reach. Plus using a ladder for cleaning is not the safest way of cleaning windows. For these reasons, window cleaners have switched to this system and do their job twice as fast.
How you can make your own water-fed pole?
A water-fed pole is used in the reach and wash method. In order to create your own water-fed pole, you just need an extendable pole, a soft-bristled brush that you can attach at its end, and think of a way to get the pure water through the pole. However, whilst designing a water-fed pole it should be kept in mind that if the pole is too long then it will become very heavy and clumsy. An unstable pole will not clean properly therefore choose an elongating pole according to the length of your window.
Now coming to the brush, it should be soft-bristled and of good quality. This is because if you use a hard-bristled brush then it can damage your window and leave scratches on it. You don’t want a damaged window therefore choosing your brush wisely is very important. Now all you have to decide is how you are going to take pure water through the pole to the window.
An environmentally friendly way of cleaning your windows:
The most important advantage of this type of window cleaning is that it is an environment-friendly way of cleaning the windows. In traditional window cleaning, people used a variety of cleaning products loaded with chemicals to get a streak-free clean window. However, in the reach and wash cleaning system, pure water is all the ingredients you need to clean your windows efficiently.
