Pure Water Cleaning for High Rise Windows: 6 Reasons to Adopt a Pure Water Clean

While many window cleaning professionals understand the benefits of a pure water clean, many have not taken the next step to adopt  this high window cleaning technology. For a group of professionals that’s constantly looking for ways to clean better, faster and safer, what does it take to make the switch to pure water window cleaning?

If you’re not yet utilizing pure water in your high rise window cleaning jobs, here are six reasons to make the switch.

Reason #1: Enhanced Safety

Did you know there are more than 300 ladder-related deaths and over 130,000 emergency room visits related to ladders each year? Needless to say, eliminating ladders as often as possible enhances safety measures. A pure water window cleaning system that utilizes an extendable waterfed pole keeps professionals on the ground rather than on ladders to reach high access windows outdoors. This results in fewer on-site accidents and potential lost work time. Reducing the use of ladders and scaffolds also saves on expenses and set-up time.

Reason #2: Longer-lasting Results 

One of the main benefits of using pure water is that it contains no minerals or impurities that can leave streaks or spots on the glass. In fact, water-fed window cleaning poles reduce streaking by a whopping 99 percent. This means that when the water evaporates, there is no residue left behind, which can help exterior windows stay cleaner for longer periods of time. For the window cleaning professional this means better results and increased customer satisfaction.

Reason #3: More Environmentally Friendly

Pure water cleaning doesn’t require soaps and chemical detergents and so this outdoor window cleaning method results in less environmental impact. With pure water cleaning, contaminated water doesn’t leak down to shrubs and other natural features. Compounding this benefit, studies show that sustainability and respect for our planet are especially important today to employees and business stakeholders.

Additionally, using tool accessories such as a window cleaning brush, along with a pure water cleaning system can reduce the cleaning time required to complete the job and subsequently conserve water.

Reason #4: Reduced Chemical Exposure

According to OSHA, exposure to commercial detergents is potentially toxic and result in a range of health hazards, including irritation, sensitization, and carcinogenicity over time. In addition, when using cleaning products on a regular basis, they impact air quality. That not only impacts the cleaning professional but also the people who work or visit a facility. Pure water cleaning uses a natural deionization process (reverse osmosis) to remove impurities in the water to forego the use of chemicals during the cleaning process.

Reason #5: Improved Efficiency

Most pure water systems with an extendable waterfed pole reach up to five stories, giving professionals easy access to upper windows,  frames and sills, saving valuable labor and time.

Reason #6: Simple to Store and Transport

You can’t replace the ease and convenience of traditional window cleaning tools, especially when cleaning ground level windows and glass. However, cleaning high access windows is another story. When using traditional window cleaning tools, often the cleaner uses as many as six to seven different components (e.g., squeegee, towel, bucket, etc.). However, introduce a ladder into the mix, and that’s a lot of components to manage without having your feet on the ground! A pure water system, once assembled, significantly reduces the number of individual components you have to manage and transport when working with multi-story buildings.
