Question on using a pole


Guest Tony Hall

OK another question gang,

 

When I do windows that I'm unable to get to I use one of my Unger poles with a Wagtail combi but the problem I'm having is I'm getting water marks around the window glass. I'm using a fixi clamp with a folded scrim in to wipe down the frames before washing and around the glass after using the combi.

 

Has anyone got any tips on how to clean the frames on the pole and make detailing easier around the windows.

Thanks All.;)

I don't think there is anyone that can get windows perfect by using a trad pole despite what some claim. I always explain to the customer that particular window won't be perfect and smear free, but it will be cleaned.

I've had a neighbour across the road as me to clean the windows but the window frames haven't been done for years, the front of the house has slopping roofs under the bedroom windows. Its impossible to use the ladders because of the angle and its not even a question of standing on them for support as its to dangerous, the only option is to use the pole.

 

Has anyone got any ideas on what I can do or use as I don't want to turn the job down as it will be a good little earner, while I'm practicing and starting up the business.;)

Pole them, or ask if you can do them from inside the house. I have one customer with health problems, so hes always home, which allows me to quickly pop upstairs to do the window above his conservatory which is unreachable even by pole.

on a first clean i scrub the whole lot frame and all then use wagtail on the glass , then wrap a scrim onto the pole tip to wipe edges and frames

 

i wouldnt waste your time using a fixi-clamp , theyre a toy . whereas a scrim sitting over on a pole tip can get into frame edges.
