Window Cleaning Kit For Cleaning Windows Outside
All the essential window washing kit to keep those outside windows shiny and clean.
When it comes to washing the windows outdoors you’ll need some different window washing kit.
Window cleaning tools that can cope with outdoor dirt and the fact that windows are usually higher from the ground and more difficult to reach.
When it comes to cleaning the outdoor windows I use a telescopic window cleaner set with extendable window cleaning pole. So that I can reach all those difficult places.
Telescopic Window Cleaner
You just can’t beat a window cleaning pole for outdoor windows.
You can either use a manual telescopic window cleaner like the Sundry Telescopic Window Cleaner – this is great for cleaning the conservatory windows.
It’s not too heavy and it’s easy to manoeuvre.
Or you may prefer a hose fed – water feed telescopic pole which you can attach to the hose pipe to really give those windows a thorough clean.
The benefit of this method of cleaning windows is obviously there’s no need to climb a ladder so you’re much safer.
The hose fed window cleaning pole sets usually come with a window cleaning brush which makes it even easier to clean the high up windows.
