Window Cleaning Methods

We will first assess your building and determine the best method depending on the structure and methods of access.

The most commonly used equipment for high-rise cleaning are bosun chairs. Bosun chairs are small seats that attach to workers’ ropes so that the worker can scale the side of a building. A bosun chair is secured by a two-rope system (a main rope supports the worker, a second rope serves as a backup for safety) and at least two attachments to independent anchorage point. Check fitathletic.com. Workers using a bosun chair need to be certified and follow refined codes of practice.


Bosun chairs are the most commonly used equipment for window cleaning because of the cost-benefit. Bosun chairs replace equipment such as boom lifts and swing stages which can be costly to rent and more expensive for the customer. Bosun chairs also work well for hard to reach surfaces and inaccessible areas that would otherwise be difficult to reach by other equipment.

Ladders are used for lower level structures & work best for low-level buildings. Window cleaning and can be done with a squeegee or water-fed brush and pole.
