Helpful Definition for: Window Cleaning

Window cleaners, also called window washers, are those who clean glass surfaces, windows and mirrors. Cleaning windows by rubbing a cloth across the glass surfaces often leaves stroke marks. Thus, usage of proper detergents and wipers gives a cleaner, more effective finish. Window cleaners in Pittsburgh use commercially available detergents, along with a squeegee, that cleans the glass effectively, leaving only a small amoutn of residual water on the surface, which evaporates quickly. For bigger windows such as storefronts and buildings, scaffolds are needed to reach the entire glass surface. Thus, a liability policy and insurance coverage for the workers are desirable. Usually, the commercial property managers in Pittsburgh form contracts with an agency providing window cleaners. Tall buildings are more expensive to clean due to requirement of greater amount of sophisticated equipment, as well as liability coverage. For general cleaning a microfiber cloth on a T handle and a squeegee are the basic equipment. A rope descent system and bosun's chair to enable easy access to the glass facade, with buckets clipped on the sides of the chair. Some equipment can also be attached to a separate line to prevent loading down the cleaner. Risks include slipping due to the soap lather, and the general hazard of the height. Thus, window cleaners need to be skilled with balancing as well. The Working At Height Regulations enforces usage of safe practices such as using ladders safely.
