    What equipment is needed to clean external windows in a two-storey house?


    My usual window cleaner can’t work for a few months because he’s injured himself. Can anyone recommend the best equipment to buy to do it myself? No ladders, so extension poles are needed.

    "without a water fed pole/using pure water it will not be that succesful,
    however getting a temporary (and less clumsy) window cleaner to cover while your regular one recovers from his injuries may be the best solution,failing that buy a water fed pole/pure water /pump,then sack him,you should get your invest back in 12 months,even quicker if you do your neighbours windows,
    hope this helps"

    "Hey there. Sorry to hear about your window cleaner has injured himself. I personally don't recommend anyone to clean their windows specifically if they are big and tall..
    The equipment depends on the material of the windows.
    At moment I'm only doing domestic cleaning but i know someone who is highly experienced and reliable that could do your windows if you would like.
    Kind regards"

    "I had to come up with something for a job similar to this and I got a extra long painting pole and attached a hose pipe to it taping it every 12 inches along the pole after it was extended then attached a window cleaning sponge to it and washed it that way, worked a treat"
