The first step is to determine the correct length or height of the pole you need. To achieve this, consider the maximum height of the tallest window you need to reach and multiply that height by 1.2 times. By multiplying the height you need to reach by this amount, you add a small amount to the length of the rod to compensate for any bending or bending in the rod created by scrubbing pressure and gravity. Once you decide on the pole length, it's time to choose the material you want.
Water-powered poles (WFP) come in different lengths, qualities, and price ranges. Cheaper models are usually made of less expensive materials, such as aluminum or fiberglass, and are heavier and less rigid (or more flexible). This makes them more difficult and boring to use, which can ultimately lead to reduced quality of work, slower production, and more chances of injury. The size of the pole you need will largely depend on the type of job you need it for.
Most domestic work is done on the ground floor and first floor, so a pole that reaches 18-22 feet is ideal, with a folded length of approximately 5 feet. If you are primarily engaged in residential window cleaning, you can get by with a 25- to 40-foot pole. A WFP with a shorter collapsed length is useful when navigating residential property. All you need is a standard telescopic pole.

For example, small 4-foot canes Long jobs are designed to clean the first floor. While a 28-foot pole will cover the second and third floors of most residences. Although it is necessary to be attentive to the slopes and walk through the basements, which can increase the length needed to reach the area to be cleaned. For even greater length, we offer water-powered poles up to 60 feet in reach.
In most cases, posts 45 feet or more will reach the fourth, fifth, and even six floors of most structures.
