One of the most recent innovations in window cleaning is water fed pole cleaning. Using a water fed pole cleaning has a lot of advantages for getting windows cleaned but there are some disadvantages too. Here’s a quick breakdown of the benefits and disadvantages of using water fed pole cleaning for window washing and what it means for homeowners.

The Advantages of Water Fed Pole Cleaning

When a cleaning technician uses a water fed pole system to clean windows they are able to access windows up to 70 feet high without a ladder. That makes cleaning windows with a water fed pole system a lot safer, even for trained technicians that know how to safely and comfortably move on a ladder.

A water fed pole system also is easy to transport. In fact, the entire system can fit on a small cart that can be wheeled into tiny spaces. This makes it ideal to clean windows that are difficult to access. Apartment buildings, homes that are built on narrow alleys and other types of homes that have very little space around them can have their windows professionally cleaned when the technician uses a water fed pole system because there is no need to get a truck or heavy ladders in the space.

If the ground around the home is very sloped it can be extremely dangerous to mount tall ladders in the area. But with a water fed pole cleaning system a technician can clean even tall skylights and upper floor windows without having to climb a ladder that is in a precarious spot. This means that more homeowners can get their windows cleaned safely and quickly.

Using a water fed pole system can cut the amount of time it takes to get your windows professionally cleaned by up to 60%. So if you have an event coming up like a graduation party, birthday party or barbecue and you want to make your house look great you can have your windows cleaned in a day by a professional technician that is using a water fed pole system.

Water fed pole cleaning systems also can safely rinse dirt and debris from the window frame and small cracks and crevices so that the area around the window is clean as well as the actual glass.

Another big advantage of using a water fed pole system is that the water fed pole system doesn’t use soap or chemicals to clean glass. That means there won’t be any soapy or possibly toxic residue runoff that could harm your pets or kids. And since no soap is used there is no danger of the soap residue dripping down onto your home’s siding or onto other windows that have just been cleaned.

A water fed pole system uses only purified water at high intensity to clean. The purified water has no chemicals or minerals in it. The minerals in unpurified water are what can leave chalky streaks on windows when they are cleaned with unpurified water. The purified water is pumped through the brush at great intensity. The wet brush is used to scrub the window. The water loosens all the dirt and grime on the window and then that dirt and grime are just rinsed away. The purified water leaves windows sparkling clean and will never leave residue on the windows that can make the windows look chalky or streaked.

The Disadvantages of a Water Fed Pole Cleaning System

There really aren’t that many disadvantages to using a water fed pole system to clean exterior windows on homes. One of the few disadvantages is that the water cleaning system won’t work on windows that are only because there is no soap used and soap is needed to break up oil on the glass. But most homeowners don’t get a lot of oily deposits on their windows so in most cases a water fed pole window washing system works just fine.

Another disadvantage is that water fed pole cleaning systems can be expensive. But this really just means that it’s much more cost-effective for homeowners to hire a professional window cleaning company that has a state of the art water fed pole window cleaning system instead of buying their own water fed pole system and trying to clean their own windows.

When a reputable window cleaning company uses a water fed pole system to clean the exterior windows of homes there are no disadvantages for homeowners. The water fed pole system makes it easy for trained and experienced technicians to clean all the windows on the exterior of the home, even high story windows or skylight, without using any kind of chemicals or soaps that can leave streaks or runoff in the yard. Plants, kids, and pets will be safe and the home will look great with clean sparkling windows.
