Ettore Basic Janitor Squeegee
The cleaning power of squeegees has seen them become a popular choice for working on multiple smooth surfaces. The main application certainly is with glass panes, where this tool has become a staple in the window cleaning industry. With a few strokes of the hand, one is able to glide the squeegee across the glass surface, clearing the liquids that are on it- from the water to the mixture of grime and cleaning solutions. When it comes to mirrors, those handprints and smudges are unsightly, coming in the way of you enjoying your reflection. With a squeegee, one is able to quickly clean the windows, restoring the sparkle to the glass. Even shower surfaces are not left behind. Here, water is particularly problematic when it is left lying about, given that the damp environment quickly morphs into a germ breeding ground and a hotpot for mould and mildew. Squeegees are then used to remove the water off the shower doors, walls and even floor. Getting different sets of equipment for each particular area can be cumbersome, from the expenses used to the storage space to house them all. You can avoid the headache involved by getting one tool whose application cuts across the board- the Ettore All-Purpose Squeegee.
Highly effective and economical cleaning tool
For your squeegee, you want to ensure that you get streak free results as you work on the different surfaces, such as the windows. In this case, the squeegee is used after the window washer, to remove the soapy solutions and grime that has been dislodged, leaving behind pristine windows. That way you get to have sparkling windows which let in the more natural sunlight into the interior space, brightening up the rooms. You also get to avoid having gunk on the windows that distorts your view of the world outside your house, and enhance your curb appeal. When using the Ettore Basic Janitor Squeegee on your windows, you have a tool that gives you more control of the process, gliding it smoothly from one edge of the glass panes to the other.
A similar case applies for your bathroom mirrors and shower doors. Squeegeeing the shower walls and glass doors after you’ve taken a shower is particularly beneficial in preventing those troublesome soap scum spots from developing- reducing your workload for the general cleaning that will be carried out later on. It also makes you feel more refreshed after taking a shower. After all, you won’t really feel clean if you’re surrounded by muck and slimy residue on the walls during your shower. The Ettore Basic Janitor Squeegee delivers on its mandate, as you glide the rubber blade across the areas being worked on. As you carry out the task, remember to wipe the blade after each pass on the surface, and to overlap the strokes- which will ensure you get streak-free results.
The Ettore Basic Janitor Squeegee has also been built to give you extended usage, with its durable construction- from the aluminium channel to the handle that has been manufactured from high impact plastic. This allows it to meet the demand for everyday use in households, without you having to worry about frequent replacements. As such, it brings you more savings down the road. With a high-quality rubber blade, the frequency of replacements for this component part is reduced, enabling you to save on the money that would have been spent.
For those high-rise areas, you can fix the Ettore Basic Janitor Squeegee onto an extension pole. The unit is compatible with different poles, with the popular option being REA-C-H poles, that are also provided by Ettore. The squeegee can be used with all the poles from this line, including the REA-C-H 1-Section which is a compact pole that is 2 feet long, the REA-C-H 2-Section units where there are models that extend to 4 feet, and others to 8 and 12 feet, all through to the REA-C-H 3-Section models which range from 9 feet to 27 feet. With this broad range of choices, you get to have easy pickings of the unit that will be best suited for your cleaning needs.
With the extension poles, the safety of the squeegeeing process is enhanced. After all, instead of struggling with ladders, you will be in a position to clean the high glass surfaces from the ground. This also speeds up the process, given that you can quickly move from one window to the next. Fall accidents that are common in the window cleaning industry when people are working from heights are also avoided, together with the damages that are caused by the ladders onto the property- such as holes in the yard or ruined paintwork and other sections of the building’s exterior where the ladder is positioned for support.
Being an all-purpose squeegee comes with cost benefits as well. You won’t have to get a squeegee for your bathroom mirror, and different ones for the shower doors, windows and other smooth surfaces in the building. You can use the Ettore Basic Janitor Squeegee on them all. In fact, its application extends to spreading grout and mastic. This tool will remove the liquids that are on any smooth surface in the building and it’s also handy for those cases where you want to ensure that the window film is smooth and even. This way, you get to save on costs that will be incurred in the process. Ettore Basic Janitor Squeegee is available in different sizes, ranging from 6 to 18 inches, allowing you to work with the unit that suits your particular needs.
Protecting your Ettore Basic Janitor Squeegee
Proper care will enable this squeegee to serve you for longer. This is through simple measures such as ensuring that you clean it after use, that way there won’t be soiling and foreign matter that gets trapped under its blade. When storing the squeegee, keep it away from direct sunlight, to ward off deterioration of the rubber blade. How the squeegee is positioned during storage is also key. Don’t set the unit down on the rubber, as it will cause undue pressure on it. The rubber side should be kept up.
