Window cleaning at height is not the easiest job, especially as environmental conditions can also be challenging, so operatives need to be armed with all the right equipment in order to carry out the work properly. A commercial window cleaner doesn’t always work with glass alone. Whether using rope access techniques (abseiling) or cradles, window cleaners have to be adept at working with different equipment while high off the ground. Rope access techniques are used if certain windows or areas are difficult to access. Water-fed poles can be used to clean windows up to a certain height, as this can be quicker and more efficient than using other access methods. Cherry pickers, hydraulic platforms, and scissor lifts can also be used depending on the nature of the job, while cradles are typically used on larger, tall structures as they allow cleaners to navigate the building with ease.
