Your Windows A Thorough Clean With The Ettore Mighty Washer Replacement Sleeve
Are you looking for an effective washer for your windows? These tools are used to remove the dirt and grime from the glass surface before squeegeeing. Ensuring that the task gets done right at the washing stage allows for the latter steeps that are to follow to be a breeze. For washers, the main aspects to consider include: the material- as it determines how efficient the sleeve will be for the cleaning; and the size- since the sleeve should be compatible with the T-bar onto which it will be fixed. Extension poles come in when the washer is being used on windows on upper floors, so you won’t have to struggle with ladders.
The cleaning power of the Ettore Mighty Washer Replacement Sleeve is attributed to its microfibre construction. This material is popular across the cleaning industry, being used in everything from mops to cloths. It relies on millions of tiny microfibers that generate high forces of attraction when passing over a surface, lifting the dirt particles with ease. This mechanical action alone is so effective that it reduces the amount of cleaning solutions that are required for the process. What’s more, the microfibre locks in the particles that have been picked up, and they are only released when it is laundered later on. This principle is applied with the Ettore Mighty Washer Replacement Sleeve, enabling it to enhance the efficiency of the window cleaning process, reducing the amount of time that you spend on the task, while enhancing the quality of the results. It prepares the glass surface for the squeegee that is to follow, for you to obtain streak-free results at the end of the process.
The Ettore Mighty Washer Replacement Sleeve works with different types of T-bars, such as the Pro+ and ProGrip units from the same brand. The sleeve comes in 10, 14 and 18-inch sizes, that way you can get the unit that is compatible with your particular T-bar. You get all this without straining your cleaning and maintenance budget, since the sleeves have been availed at pocket friendly rates.
Washing The Windows
This is the first stage of the cleaning process, and is done in preparation for the squeegeeing that will follow. The equipment needed here includes: the detergent to be used, a bucket to hold the solution, plus the washer itself, of with the Ettore Mighty Washer Replacement Sleeve is a part of. Extension poles may be needed for working on high rise windows, and window scrapers come on for those cases where you have stuck-on grime on the glass surface, such as the glue residue that remains when stickers and posters are pulled down, or mortar particles that have dried on the glass and need to be removed during those post-construction cleanup jobs.
For the detergent, it is recommended that you work with a washing up liquid that has been particularly developed for use on glass surfaces, instead of just any product used with the laundry or other hard surfaces in the building. Prepare the cleaning solution in the bucket, using the recommended dilution ratios that have been indicated on the product label. As a general guide, the resultant solution simply needs to feel slippery in your fingers. You don’t have to use too much of the detergent, since you don’t want there to be lots of foam. Remember to first put water into the bucket, then add the detergent to it. Excess product can lead to issues such as increasing the chances of streaking, and a faster rate of dirt accumulating on the windows.
To set up the washer, ensure that you’re working with compatible units, especially when it comes to the size of the T-bar, and the Ettore Mighty Washer Replacement Sleeve unit that you’re fixing it to. In this regard, this washer replacement sleeve is available in different sizes, including 10, 14 and 18 inches. Remember that the washing process is only part of the job, and the window needs to be wet for when you’re getting to the squeegeeing process- hence you want to work with tools that will be easy to use and that will quicken the process. This is why professionals opt to use window washers, as opposed to working with sponges, rags or brushes. To work on the windows, follow these steps:
Dip the washer into the bucket.
Squeegee out the excess cleaning solution. You can do this with your hand, or the bucket fitting that some units come with.
Proceed to wash the windows. Usually, a circular motion is used. There is not a fixed rule here. You can work with whichever pattern that you find convenient for you.
When washing the windows, use sufficient cleaning solution for the glass panes to remain wet until they have been squeegeed. This can also be ensured by working in manageable sections, where the windows won’t dry out too fast. It’s also recommended that you work on the cooler periods of the day. When washing windows that are in direct sunlight, more cleaning solution will be needed, and you will also be required to work faster so that the glass doesn’t dry before you’ve got to the next stage.
When working on the interior side of the windows, you should squeeze out as much water from the Ettore Mighty Washer Replacement Sleeve as you can. This is to prevent it from dripping onto the floor. In any case, the indoor side of the windows doesn’t have as much dirt as the exterior, hence less solution is required to work on it.
You can now squeegee the windows. This can be done from side to side, an approach which will give you more control in directing the flow of liquid down the window. This is as opposed to using the squeegee with top-to-bottom strokes.
Avoid working with abrasive tools like stainless steel scourers. These will scratch the glass. Specialised units like the Ettore Mighty Washer Replacement Sleeve have been particularly developed for working on windows, thus allowing you to proceed with the task without worry.
