Water Fed Pole / Pure Water Window Cleaning

Pure Water Window cleaning

Is also known as “Water Fed Pole” or WFP  for short.


This is a modern method of window cleaning, which Sponge on the run use as well as the Traditional Window Cleaning Method. In this style of window cleaning, we use only Pure Deionizer Water on the glass – no detergents are used to wash and rinse the windows, frames and window sills.
What Is Pure Water
Pure Water is water which has been treated to remove any dissolved solids particles from the water. Tap water is full of these contaminates, which stop you being able to wash with water alone without leaving, marks, spots and smears etc
This is because de-ionized water does not contain any solids in the water – no particles of minerals, salts, metals etc. We carry with us a particle meter to check the purity of the water. Gold coast tap water is normally about 80 ppm (part per million). Our pure water achieves 0-1 ppm!
So, when we say that Sponge on the run use Pure Water for cleaning windows, I really do mean ‘pure’ – even purer than filtered water.
Water Fed Pole / Pure Water Window Cleaning
when cleaning your windows, Sponge on the run use a specially designed ‘brush head’. This is no normal brush head, but has been specifically designed and made for the purpose of cleaning glass with pure water. This brush head goes on the end of a long pole. Then pump up pure water to the brush head, and through jets in the brush. Using this pure water and this special brush head, Sponge can remove the dirt from your windows, frames and sills. The fibers in these brushes have a number of qualities, but those most important to you are:
• they do not hold dirt in the brush fibers themselves, which aid the window cleaning process.
• The brush fibers are kind to glass, and don’t mark your windows.
After the dirt has been removed, Sponge on the run will rinse off the windows with more of this treated water. This leaves them very clean, and since there is no residue from detergent, cleaning product, contaminates in the water or anything else, your windows actually stay cleaner for longer! They stay cleaner, because there is nothing for the dirt to stick to – no residues, not even a micro fine layer since everything has been cleaned off using pure water
Benefits for Pure Water Windows
• Can clean glass and signs up to 4 storey’s  high without the expense of abseiling, scaffolds or cherry pickers
• Cleans window frames, facials and panels as well as glass
• No chemicals – meaning good for the environment and clean windows last longer as there is no detergent residue
• Cheaper and faster than the alternatives
• Safer – no ladders or heavy machinery – the operator keeps both feet on the ground
Environmentally Friendly Window Cleaning
Sponge on the run use environmentally friendly, cleaning solutions wherever possible. Whether it be pure de-ionized water, or environmentally friendly cleaning solutions derived from sustainable, natural plants and processes. All that is left after we have been cleaning your windows is pure de-ionized water. This will do no harm to your plants or your paths etc. if any water runs on to your garden. At the same time, there is zero compromise on cleaning ability.
