Discussion: Window washing

March 11, 2011
Join our Discussion of the Week on the CM/Cleaning & Maintenance Management Online™ Bulletin Board and share your thoughts with other industry professionals.
This week''s discussion focuses on window washing.

Because of the circulating dust and the constant use the built environment receives, we clean interior spaces and surfaces daily. Windows are part of the built environment, yet custodial professionals generally do not clean them with as much frequency as other items.

How often to you wash the windows in your facilities; do you clean the inside more regularly than you do the outside? Is window washing as task you perform in-house or something you subcontract out to be handled by a more qualified individual?

What sorts of tools, equipment and chemicals do you use; what techniques do you employ, and what have you found most useful? Feel free to share with us any window washing stories you have.
