Enhancing Your Cleaning Efforts With The Ettore Master Stainless Steel Handle
Just as with any other cleaning tool, when it comes to the equipment used to take care of your windows, you want products that will deliver on their mandate, and give you value for the money spent on them. Durable tools that can take you for the long haul, and won’t keep breaking down after every other week, forcing you to make replacements. This cuts across the board- from the window washers, scrapers and squeegees, to extension poles and other accessories used with them. Whether you’re a homeowner or a professional window cleaning contractor, you want to work with products that will enable you to get streak free results. Squeegees come in at the latter stages of the window cleaning process, clearing the liquids that are on the surface. In just a couple of quick strokes, one is able to dry the glass surface- and it’s also touted as the most fun part of the job. It doesn’t take much effort, and all one does is glide the squeegee from one end of the window to the other, wipe the rubber blade, and proceed onto the next stroke, repeating this until the entire area has been worked on. The squeegee component parts include the rubber blade, the channel it’s fixed to, the handle that holds the channel, and depending on the unit, there can be mechanisms such as a quick-release feature that speeds up the channel changes, clips that hold the rubber in place, and a swivel where the fitting on the handle allows you to adjust how loose or firm the swivel should be. The features vary from one product to the next. This review will look at the Ettore Master Stainless Steel Handle, and how this unit aids the window cleaning process.
With the fixed or clipped design, you get to assemble the squeegee that suits your needs. Fixing the Ettore Master Stainless Steel Handle onto the extension poles is a breeze. That way, you will be able to get to those high-rise windows safely, reducing the need for using ladders on the property. This contributes to alleviating the risks of fall accidents, and reduces the amount of time and energy spent moving from one window to the next. For instance, you can use them with the professional REA-C-H aluminium extension poles provided by the same brand, where the click-lock tip enables you to quickly change the tools as needed. The Ettore REA-C-H extension poles have different types as well, and you can opt for the 1-section that reaches 2' (60cm), the 2-section unit that where there are models that get to 12' (360cm), the 3-section pole with models stretching to 27' (870cm) or the 4-section models, ranging from 18' (540cm) to 32' (900cm). The ribbed tubing with the poles adds to the convenience of working with the assembly.
Remember to inspect the squeegee before proceeding to work on the window. For instance, when running your finger along the rubber edge, it should feel straight, and not stretched or too tight. The rubber should also hang out from the ends of the channel on both sides- with about 5 mm. This is to protect the surrounding frames and painted surfaces as you proceed with the squeegeeing.
Durable and lightweight
With the Ettore Master Stainless Steel Handle, you get a strong construction that will last for multiple cleaning sessions. Whether you’re a homeowner searching for a squeegee setup that enables you to work on your windows for the long haul, or are a professional contractor where you want to prevent your cleaning budget from being dented by making too many replacements- hence the need for a durable unit that saves on costs, the Ettore Master Stainless Steel Handle will be up to the task, giving you extended usage with each unit purchased.
What's more, the light nature of the Ettore Master Stainless Steel Handle means that it contributes to making the overall assembly easy to carry around and work with. It weighs just 0.242 lbs. Thus, less energy is expended on your part, and your arms aren’t put under strain. It extends the periods with which you can carry on with the tasks before feeling fatigued- meaning that more windows can be worked on during each session- which is a welcome benefit to both homeowners and professional window cleaning teams.
When working on windows, there’s lots of water and soap involved. Things tend to get slippery. The last thing you want is to lose your grip on the squeegee you’re using. It can result in a huge mess- and it also gets frustrating when the tool keeps sliding off your hands, coming in the way of you getting the windows clean faster. With the Ettore Master Stainless Steel Handle, you won’t have to worry about that. The rubber grip of the handle ensures that your performance is not compromised even when working without a pole.
