An Overview of Our Cleaning Technology

Pure Water & Water Fed Pole Window Cleaning


Sound a little far-fetched? How can only water be used to clean without using any kind of soap? The quick explanation on how the Water Fed Pole Window Cleaning system works is; the window and frames are scrubbed with a wet brush to loosen dirt and then rinsed with highly purified de-ionized water. Because the water is pure, it leaves no marks when it dries. You can think of it like the "spot free rinse" at the drive thru car wash, times 100.

That's the short version. The long version is as follows:

The Technology Behind It

Water in its purest form (rainwater, depending on the pollution where you live) has zero Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) in it. Purified water is well known to be a great cleaning agent for many applications such as cleaning clothes and taking showers. Those of you that have children more than likely have bathed your kids in purified water, and of course mix the baby formula in it as well.

Pure mineral free water naturally wants to bond with minerals, dirt, and organic material. It’s all part of the natural cycle that our planet produces. So when water passes through carbon, sediment and RO filters, then on to DI resin, it is nearly as good as rainwater in purity (with regards to mineral and some chemicals that have been removed from the water).

When the water is purified, it is forced through hoses to our water fed pole delivery system. It travels up the pole, and to a brush.

How the window gets clean, is by agitating the dirt on the glass. The water acts as the lubricant to break the bond between the dirt and the glass, and then when the glass is clean, a rinse is given so that all contaminants are rinsed away.

Utah’s Window Cleanings’ WATER FED POLE system can also be used in the rain as rainfall will not re-activate any soap residue that causes white rain spots.

Delivery Systems

This system is a $10K plus window cleaning system that does a far GREATER job than any traditional squeegee. This is why people love and call Utah’s Window Cleaning.

Currently Utah’s Window Cleaning uses the most advanced Water Fed System with carbon fiber poles, making the poles light weight and rigid which in turn keeps fatigue to a minimum compared to cheaper, heavier poles and best NO LADDERS!

With these poles we can clean windows up to 110 feet high. Water is pushed up the brush onto the glass after it is filtered 6 TIMES through a 5 stage reverse osmosis system then sent through a final filter to deionized the water removing all potential for left over water spots.

The less expensive, heavier poles are made from Aluminum. Some are made of pure fiberglass. While poles made of these materials will be able to get the job done, and much more effectively than a traditional squeegee would, in the hands of an untrained person it could be very dangerous. These poles made of these materials tend to bend and are operators are less likely to be able to control them at heights. Utah’s Window Washing DOES NOT use the cheaper poles.

How does using this commercial window cleaning system save you money?

In the window cleaning industry prices are inflated due to risk, the greater the risk the higher the price, as danger money is then applied. Also the hiring of expensive lifts and using traditional commercial window cleaning techniques that takes 50% or 60% longer inflates prices greatly. Because there is no risk and no high access equipment required, we can pass on these savings to our clients.

In terms of how much is a difficult one to answer as every commercial window washing job is different and has its own problems and complexities. However through past experience and customer feedback, on average, we are saving our clients around 35-40% of their total commercial window cleaning costs, by using this system. This is in comparison with the more conventional methods used before, such as ladders etc.

Is it safe?

Yes. Because the operators work from the safety of the ground and no ladders or other equipment are used. Commercial window washing has never been safer!

Are the poles heavy? How do you control it so high?

Carbon fiber poles are the lightest and easiest to control at heights of up to 110 feet!

The poles that we currently use are made from pure carbon fiber. Previously we used aircraft grade aluminum poles, however we have found them to be outdated in comparison to the more rigid and lighter, taller waterfed poles that we are using now. The poles weight approximately 6 pounds and under. When at heights of more than 60′ we station one person on the roof of the building securing the top of the pole with a rope until the pole can be lowered and easily controlled.

On top of the pole is a nylon monofilament, flocked bristle or hogs hair brush head with a small channel that lets out a constant supply of pure water. First we clean the frames and then the glass by moving the brush head (which is constantly wet) over them. We then rinse the windows and frames and leave to dry to a spot free finish. That’s it! Commercial window washing in a nutshell. Very simple, very efficient. No more dirty streaks on the frames where they have been wiped. No more disruptive window cleaner at your window when you are trying to finish your work.

Are any chemicals used during this filtration process?

No. All filters contain natural elements such as salt, resin beads and carbon sediment and are environmentally safe.

Can the water damage or stain my property or building?

No. More damage is caused from pollution in the rain or atmosphere. The water is pure, with no contaminants it. It will not damage or stain your building in any way.
