ABOUT THE SYSTEM
As a company wanting to be at the forefront of our industry, we decided to invest in this technology which involves the use of telescopic poles and 100% pure water, which we filter through a process of deionization and reverse osmosis. We have embraced this technology for a number of reasons:
Better Cleaning Results
Dirt particles are agitated using a purpose made, soft bristled brush, and rinsed away using completely pure water. You may be surprised to know that no chemicals or detergents are used. You will likely notice that the windows seem to stay clean for longer. This is because there is no sticky soap residue left on the window. Usually rainfall would mix with this soap residue and form little spots on the windows. After a little while using this method, all traces of the soap residue will be rinsed away. The rain will have no soap residue to mix with and therefore they will appear to remain cleaner for longer.
Health and Safety Legislation
Legislation now limits the use of ladders as temporary workstations. The law states that ladders should only be used when all viable safer alternatives have been considered. Water fed pole systems are seen as a safer alternative. This window cleaning method allows us to do the job to a very high standard and we feel it is a sensible decision to choose to work from the safety of the ground. According to the HSE one person a week dies from falling from height in the UK and over sixty a week are severely injured; of the fatalities on average twenty are from ladders and three of those are window cleaners. http://www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/indg401.pdf
Ladder use causes some inevitable disturbance, eg rattling of the metal, dents in your lawn etc. These problems are avoided with the use of water fed poles.
Something many customers appreciate is that by using water fed poles instead of ladders, there is no more need to worry about the window cleaner suddenly appearing at the window.
We can now reach with ease previously inaccessible aspects of your property such as third floor windows, windows above the conservatory or sloping roofs and other windows that previously had to be left for safety reasons.
