The technology behind window cleaning
Try the fall anti static treatment to preserve your windows clean all winter
A technology 100% safe and ecological
Many believe pure water is a new technology… but no, already in the fifties in the USA, the window cleaners were using this technique. Obliviously the equipment is now more effective than during those years, but the technology that you have the chance to see above stays the same.
More and more we see window cleaning enterprises using purified water in the Canadian West, but Vitres.net is part of the Pioneers in Quebec.
For the most scientific in this world or those who love more theory, this is how our window cleaning technology works in detail :
The city water rejected from your water exits is full of impurities caused by the salt and minerals existing in it: chlorine, potassium, sodium, nitrates, calcium, phosphates, etc. If you tried to clean your windows and rinse them with your water hose during a hot and sunny, summer day, you would be surprised by the result. Indeed, following the maintenance of your windows, beautiful white spots will stay on your windows. These are caused by the salt in the water that stays present on the window during the evaporation.
Before cleaning the windows, the filters present in our truck-industries practice an advanced process named inverted osmosis:
- At the filter’s entrance, a pre-filter holds back the largest sediments in the water
- Next, an active carbon filter rids off the water from the chlorine and other organic composites
- Finally, the water passes in an inverted osmosis membrane where the water separated itself between the mineralized one and the purified one.
To give you an idea of the membrane’s accuracy, it consists of pores measuring a millimeter of micrometer, in other words, a thousandth of a millimeter… which is really small.
Obviously, the pure water will be propelled in our technicians’ hoses to come clean your windows. This water allows us to avoid having to use any soap or chemical products and thus, offer you window cleaning.
Also, we can use poles reaching up to 50 ft. high in the air, having us avoid using ladders that could cause accidents to our employees and / or your house during the maintenance of your windows.
