Hotel Window Cleaning

Hello Everyone. My company has been awarded a construction clean up job for a 4 story hotel. Part of the bid is window cleaning inside and out. The windows do not open, so we need to reach them from the outside.
What is the best way to do this? I realize an extension is not going to go that high. I was thinking a lift. From the outside directly under the windows is mulch with plants. Maybe an extension ladder? Opinions please! Thank you in advance.

Your best bet is an articulating lift.

A lift will be the safest way of doing this.

actually I can't think of another way.
How can you clean windows placed somewhere high from the outside, if you're not using a lift?

We have had really good success using boom lifts for pressure washing the exterior of hotels and other buildings. That's probably your best bet for getting access to the windows.

Boom lifts are good for not that tall buildings. However, some method of suspending from the roof must be used for the higher ones.

Best Regards,

Good choice. Lift was the best idea for this situation.

The method showed above is a good one but the use of platform for the workers would certainly provide a better and faster cleaning...

Best regards, Silvia Smith!

Best bet - subcontract out your exterior window cleaning to a company that does absailing.

Hopefully you have calculated the costs that would cover their charges. Safety is always an issue. We were recently approached for bid for a similair building and we shyed away because of the high windows. Someone else bid got the job but didn't do the exterior windows that well by just washing it with brushes on poles (that's the other options) - not blade cleaning just washing.

Hi all,
According to me the best way is to use lift because it is not possible to clean window without using it. As you have mention that windows are not opening so you have to do it from outside. Actually before some time we also have a client and for which we faced same condition and that time we also did the same as I described here.
