Sun/heat/rinsing

If you are cleaning a house and its been hot today (25-30 degrees)

 

Do you rinse the same or more than normal in the shade?

 

Although the sun is not on the windows, the air/heat will dry them quicker.

 

So do you rinse more when its hot even in the shade?

Yes, but not as much as if the windows were in the hot sun. The trouble is that houses get hot inside and that warmth radiates out, so we really want to make sure each window and gap is cool so the water flushes the dirt away. If it dries too quickly, we found that it can leave a mess.

 

We have also found the water in the van is luke warm and so doesn't do as good a cooling job.

 

I remember a window cleaner in Cyprus using WFP telling us on another forum that they spend a while cooling each window down with water by running the brush over it before attempting to clean and rinse the glass. The results were terrible if they didn't do this.

What are you rising off with the final rinse, those little bits you sometime get on the glass or dirty water?

 

Did a couple of medium sized commercial buildings in the hot sun, didn’t do a final rinse at all, on any of the windows. This work is done regularly window frames are good, the water is pure; the brush is clean, 2.5 litres water flow rate was more than enough today.

 

Cleaned the insides as well, windows were all dry by the time I left, clean, spot free. 100% Polyester brush.

I used hot water today and had no issues with drip marks or spotting. However I did have to use a scrapper though as all of the windows had old paint on them.
