Scrapers are a critical tool for every window cleaner. It’s often that you find cases of stuck-on grime on the glass, that defies your scrubbing efforts when using tools like washer sleeves. Tape that kids put on the windows at home, sticky residue that remains when you pull down posters at store-front windows, paint from renovation jobs that accidentally got sprayed onto the windows, stucco or caulk that is encountered during post-construction window clean-up hobs- these call for more than the conventional scrubbing power. Scrapers come in to tackle those difficult situations, allowing you to proceed with the rest of the cleaning and squeegeeing of the window. When getting a scraper for your cleaning needs, there are different factors to consider. Take size for instance. Scrapers come in different sizes to allow the personnel carrying out the cleaning task to work with the unit that particularly suits their situation. 5- and 6-inch units are some of the most popular sizes around, and there are also 3- and 4-inch alternatives for one to use. Replacement parts also come into play- especially with the blade. With all that stubborn grime and tough debris being encountered, the blades will eventually get worn, hence you want to have a scraper whose replacement blades can easily be found. The cover is also key, given that it protects the blade of the unit from unnecessary wear and damage, and also keeps the cleaner safe from bodily harm. Aspects like the angle of the scraper are also important, especially for those cases where you will need the extra reach for challenging situations. Let’s look at what the 5-inch Champion Scraper has to offer:
At the top of its game
From increasing your speed of cleaning, to getting into the tightest corners, the Ettore Champion Scraper 13 Cm gets the task done. Its angled head makes it a popular product for working on those areas that are hard to reach, which is one of the reasons why it is highly sought after. This, coupled with the 5-inch (13 cm) size where you will be in a position to cover more area when making the scraping strokes, comes in handy to speed up your cleaning operations. For professional contractors who are keen on ensuring that they deliver quality results in moments, the 5-inch Champion Scraper will be an optimal tool to include in your window cleaning kit.
Speaking of results, the Ettore Champion Scraper 13 Cm is effective in getting rid of that caked-on residue that is on the glass panes. From paint residues such as after renovation works have been carried out, to post-construction window cleaning up jobs what you want a tool that can be used to dislodge the dried-on stucco and caulk, you can rely on the 5-inch Champion Scraper to get the job done. Once done, put the cover of the scraper back in place, in order to protect both the blade, and the persons on the premises. After all, you don’t want the blade to remain exposed to moisture and heat from the environment, and it’s also prudent to ensure that the rest of the person on the premises do not get injured by the sharp blade.
The 5-inch Champion Scraperis comes at a pocket-friendly price, and offers you extended usage. This is key in reducing the costs that go into acquiring your window cleaning supplies, to protect your profit margins. The complete unit comes in packages of six Ettore Champion Scraper 13 Cm per case. If needed, you can also acquire replacement blades, and keep benefitting from the effectiveness that comes from the design of this unit.
This scraper is also easy on your wallet. Whether you’re a homeowner looking for a durable unit that will last you for long, or a window cleaning company keen on cutting down on its operation costs without compromising on the quality of services rendered, you will get to benefit from the pricing and durability of the Ettore Champion Scraper 13 Cm, which gives you more value for every unit that you acquire.
Note that when you’re scraping, the glass should always be wet. Working with a soapy solution is even better, as it will provide more lubrication for the scraping process. As you hold the blade against the glass surface, even pressure should be applied. It’s also especially vital that you only scrape with forward strokes. Pulling the blade backwards will result in debris getting trapped under it, scratching the glass surface. As you approach the edges of the window, go slower and take extra care, so as not to damage the frames. For the windows with film tint, only scrape them if your goal is to actually remove the film, since the scraper will cut right through it and lift it off the glass.
Using the Ettore Champion Scraper 13 Cm with extension poles
While the scraper can be gripped directly as you clean the glass surfaces, there will be cases when the windows are out of reach- such as those for the upper floor. In this case, you can simply attach the 5-inch Champion Scraper onto your preferred extension pole. For instance, it is compatible with the entire line of REA-C-H poles, which are also provided by Ettore. These are the likes of the compact single section 2' (60cm) pole, the 2-section models that extend to 4' (120cm) to those that reach 12' (360cm); and even the REA-C-H 3-section units, where you have models that extend to 9' and 12', all through to the longer 24' and 27' (870 cm) units. This lengthens your reach, and the diverse compatibility means that you get to pick the extension poles that suit your particular needs.
The scraper is a light product, at 1.6 ounces, it barely adds weight to the overall assembly with the extension pole, meaning that you won’t expend much energy carrying it around. You get to focus your attention and energy to the cleaning task at hand- which also benefits from the increased efficiency that you obtain when working with the 5-inch Champion Scraper.
