In this video Ionic Systems explains water quality and how water, water fed poles, water purification systems and methods for cleaning have changed over the years.
Traditionally window cleaning has been a dangerous activity since much of the cleaning at height is done from ladders, which are inherently treacherous. In the past, to avoid water marks, window cleaners have always wiped windows clean with a towel or squeegee. This meant they had to be close to the glass to get the job done.
This all changed back in 1992 when Ionic Systems added pure water to water fed poles so that windows could be cleaned from the safety of the ground.
Ionic Systems invented the Reach and Wash System and forever changed the way that window cleaning would be tackled. Due to increased safety restrictions in the industry the underlying drivers for innovation prompted Ionic Systems to reimagine the way this type of work was being done.
Although aluminum water fed cleaning poles had been used for a while in North America they had inferior results especially considering the weight of the poles.
