Window Cleaning with a Water Fed Pole System

Here at Two Glass Gents, we have a variety of tools available to clean your windows in the most effective and efficient way possible. Our two main methods are the traditional squeegee method, and the use of a water fed pole system. Our team of window cleaning experts know which method is best suited for use on your home. 

Here is how our water fed pole system works

First, we hook our hoses up to your homes exterior water source. This water will flow through the tanks through our tanks full of resin (to remove unwanted particles from the water) in order to purify it for our use. This water will continuously flow through our hoses, and up to the brush head attached to our extendable pole

Now to clean the window! We will spray the window with the pure water scrub the dirt off window, including the frame and sill. Once all the dirt and debris is off the window we rinse the window and leave it to dry on its own. Don’t worry, because it is fresh, pure water it will dry spot free!

Remember, you may see that your windows are still wet after we are done cleaning, that is just fine! They dry on their own and they will dry spot free!

Why Pure Water? 

Pure water is the ultimate cleaner for dirt. It attracts the dirt and it washes away with the water.

Reasons Soft Washing is Better Than Power Washing 

Most people are familiar with typical pressure or power washing. But here at Two Glass Gents we soft wash. Here are a few reasons why : 

1 - Soft Washing is safer for your home than power washing. We use low pressure water and detergent to clean the surface, as opposed to blasting it with water. Power washing can just push the dirt, mold, moss, and mildew further into your shingles or siding, not truly cleaning the surface. Which leads me to reason 2 of why you should soft wash instead of power wash!

2- Soft Washing is more effective and lasts longer than traditional power washing. Our detergent works to kill moss, mold, and mildew at the root.  This means it will take longer for these things to grow back. 

3- It doesn’t void any house warranties.

4 - Soft washing can extend the life of your exterior paint. Many have come to us for soft washing on the years they do not want to paint the exterior of their home and are amazed to see how refreshed their home looks! 


What Can Be Soft Washed?

Just about anything! The list includes : Siding, Decks, Porches, Docks, Driveways, Sidewalks, Stone Patios, Porch Furniture, etc.

Soft Washing vs Power Pressure Washing Petoskey Harbor Springs Northern Michigan

Power Washing, Pressure Washing, vs the Soft Wash in Petoskey Harbor Springs of Northern Michigan

What is Soft Washing?

    This method uses a mixture of detergents and low pressure to kill mold, mildew and remove dirt safely. The pressure is so low you can stick your hand in front of the wand with no effects.

What is Power Washing or Pressure Washing? 

    This method uses pressure to cleaning surfaces such as siding, decks and cement. It also can cause damage to surfaces by splintering wood and leaving etch marks.

Power Washing Pressure Washing Petoskey Harbor Springs Northern Michigan

How long does each method keep your surface clean?

     Soft washing gets to the root of the problem. Especially in Northern Michigan were moss and mold grow fast. This method will keep mold away for at least 2 or 3 years.

     Power washing blows the surface dirt off and does not get to the root of the issue. Mold will normally grow back within the next year.

 

Does either method damage plants?

     Soft washing uses sodium hypochlorite to kill mold. We are extremely careful to wet everything down with water that the sodium hypochlorite will touch. Also the amount that gets sprayed is very diluted. When the detergent hits the ground it turns into salt when dry.

     Power washing uses high pressure and water. If the pressure comes in contact with anything at to high of a force the pressure can damage leaves, wood or grass.

 

What kind of surfaces can both methods clean?

     Soft washing cleans all different type of surfaces. Because the method is so soft it can even clean gentle surfaces like cedar siding.

     Power washing cleans all different types of surfaces as well but with the risk of damaging with pressure.
