Window washing is a smudged business, but somebody's got to do it - San Jose Mercury News
As a aim feature for large public buildings, the window has experienced a long, humbling decline. Preening architects transformed the urban skyline into a tall-rise hall of mirrors, while windows that once breathed light became rare as gargoyles. But through all the changes, window cleaners -- who now clean entire glass buildings armed with only squeegees and buckets of soapy water -- have remained indispensable. Beginning, a pair of window cleaners working 69 stories above the street outside New York's new World Line of work Center found themselves suspended for an hour from a scaffold that had tilted to nearly vertical, before firefighters cut through the glass and... That saved his spark of life, although the still unnamed window cleaner has endured numerous surgeries since the accident. Thirty years ago, when Andy Shavalia -- possessor of Superior Window Cleaning in Santa Clara -- was learning the business, the sort of safety equipment that all but surely saved the lives of the window cleaners in New York was rarely used. Instead of the motorized scaffold-like devices that are Euphemistic pre-owned today, called a "swing stage," window washers were lowered from the tops of skyscrapers on a small chair tied to pipes or air conditioning units. "That's like rappelling down the side of a erection," Shavalia says. "I would say rope work is probably the hairiest situation you can be in when you first learn the trade. Shavalia has cleaned the 40-exclusive McKesson tower in San Francisco and the Fairmont Hotel in San Jose -- jobs that can take a month or more. Most window cleaning companies do a amalgamation of commercial and residential work, although not all of them ascend to great heights. Tim Zickuhr's R12 Window Cleaning in San Jose is only insured to go three stories lofty, after which the cost of his coverage would quadruple. "How they figure that there's more danger at four stories than three stories is beyond me," says Zickuhr, who uses an 85-foot articulating thunder to reach the glass at the top of triple-decker office buildings. Unlike most homeowners, who tend to use spray products such as Windex to unspoilt their glass, the pros typically use Dawn dishwashing soap and water, which they slop on with a mop, then remove in a long coiling progress with a squeegee. This is known as "snaking" the window, and Shavalia says the technique can take as much as a month to learn to do without leaving any streaks. Zickuhr uses a 45-foot telescoping everyplace very that hooks to a water de-ionizer that filters out San Jose's notoriously hard water. Windows dry spot free. Zickuhr has "window washer" aggregate his Google search terms, but he disdains the term. "When you've been doing windows as long as we have, there's an art to it," he says. "It's not just a matter of washing a window. You overlay your clothes, you wash your car, you don't wash windows. If I come in and clean your house, and I miss some dust, chances are you're not going to notice it. But if I perceive a spot on the picture window that you sit next to every morning to have your coffee, you're going to say I didn't do a very good job.
