Whoa that's awesome. I'll take a look.
I have a sectional ladder like that one. Mine goes 33'. A little taller than they are supposed to go but I needed the extra height. Very light ladders. They do flex quite a bit though. For interior Windows nothiubeats a strip washer and squeegee. Streak free. I just completed a retirement community. 3 1/2 days. Exterior only. 3 stories main building and 20 cottages plus a 2 story memory care facility. That's was a big job. I do it yearly. I actually do all the retirement centers in my town. 4 of them.

I tried the green pads and blue ones made by IPC Eagle and the results are atrocious :(

Do you clean with interior pads on a regular basis? I'd love some tips!

I keep getting something that looks like a white smear all over the windows. I've used pure water, alcohol/pure water mix, Sprayaway :D and denatured alcohol. I just can't get rid of the smear.

Ladder won't work in this place, the design is terrible.
Send pictures. I've never found a job I can't ladder.

Hey Jeff, I have those Unger pads and honestly they aren't cutting the cheese. They need to stay moist too or they are impossible to move across a glass surface.

I think these indoor kits are made for maintaining glass that is already relatively clean.
That's kinda what I was trying to say..... I use them for hard to reach glass only..... It just works....... Not very well at all.....

Aww sorry Mike,
Wouldn't work as good as they taste!!
If it was under your ass while you were riding it probably work....
those buggers are amazing and can jump high enough to get to those Windows!!!

Lol send one over I hate climbing ladders!

Have you eaten one before? Tastes like chicken?

I'm not getting any dirt off the pads now, but the damn streaks. They be killing me! So must be something on the windows...

I actually tried your suggestion on another spot, the door glass which we clean daily and you're right. I cleaned it, left it wet and everything was happy, happy.
