Hello All! I am looking for some ideas on how to clean a 5 story building. It is a giant apartment complex that has just finished being built. However, where I am from there are only a select few buildings that are over 3 stories tall. Most jobs I am able to clean with the aid of a 32 ft ladder. If not, I rent a lift. In this case, there is no room for a lift to move around the building, and my ladder only reaches to the 3rd story. I have considered buying the equipment to repel from the roof but I am new to that technique and the builder said there is no anchor point on the roof, which is flat. Also, my poles only go up to 24 feet. It would be possible to reach the top floors by climbing to the top of the 32 ft ladder and then extending the pole the remainder of the way. However, that seem dangerous and there are about 900 windows on the 4th and 5th stories. So that would take forever and only increase the chances of someone falling. The windows also have specks of mortar and silicon on them that would require some care to clean off. Also, the windows can't be removed. They are a single sheet of glass. So here are my main questions: 1. Does anyone have any suggestion on how they would approach a job like this? 2. Does anyone have any experience with repelling to clean windows that might have some suggestions on how to anchor to the roof? 3. Or is there a more simple solution that I am overlooking? Thanks
