Unger Ergotec Ninja Squeegee For Your Window Cleaning Needs

Window care is part of the regular building maintenance. At home, you want to wake up, draw the curtains, and let the natural sunlight bathe the interior of your house, not be met with patches of soiling screaming back at you. Filthy windows take away the harm of the home. They drag down the curb appeal, and is not a sight you want greet you each time you head home from work. A similar scenario plays out in commercial establishments. The state of the windows affects the ambience. How will your employees be productive in a dingy environment? Your power bills also increase, seeing that you spend more energy on the lighting plus heating and air conditioning systems. Then there’s the image that is portrayed to your customers. They form a perception about you based on the state of things they find you in- and with the windows that will happen even before they’ve got into the building. Even the structural integrity of the windows is at risk. When they are not cleaned regularly, the risk of etching increases, which weakens the glass. This makes it fragile, and it can easily shatter. Sand, salt, bark and sap are all a threat to your installation, and getting rid of it is key to prolong the life of your windows. Since the glass is porous, the dirt and microorganisms that build up inside the pores reduce its strength. You want quality systems which you can use for your routine window cleaning and maintenance. That’s where the Unger Ergotec Ninja Squeegee comes in.

Enhanced Window Care With The Ergotec Ninja System
As a professional window cleaner, you want to streamline your operations. Your goal is to cut down on your costs so as to increase your profit margins. While doing this, you cannot afford to compromise on the quality you deliver to your clients, since they are the key to the success of your business. As such, you want reliable products that you can work with, where quality and performance goes in line with more efficient processes that will boost your bottom line. That’s what you get with the Ergotec Ninja System, a premium range of tools specially designed for the professional window cleaning. Each of the products in this range has been carefully engineered to handle a particular facet of the cleaning operations. Take for instance the Ergotec Ninja Microfibre Cloth. The highly absorbent material generates strong forces of attraction when passed over the glass surface, and picks up particles that are too small for even the eye to see. This includes those allergens that would have otherwise affected the persons in your establishment. Then there is the Ergotec Ninja Bucket-On-A-Belt, that cuts down on the amount of time and energy spent as you work with the cleaning solutions- it holds 2 squeegees, 1 safety scraper, 1 washer and 0.75l of cleaning liquid. The Ergotec Ninja Washer, on the other hand, comes with a sleeve with enhanced absorbency and has a strong anodised aluminium structure that is also lightweight, and the Ergotec Ninja Scraper ensures that those bits of grime that have stubbornly adhered to the windows are got off with ease- and its complemented with a durable holder for fitting to your belt. The Ergotec Ninja Squeegee is part and parcel of this system.

Using The Unger Ergotec Ninja Squeegee
Gather your cleaning supplies from the solution to be used, the window washer, to your quality Unger Ergotec Ninja Squeegee. Follow these steps:
1. Prepare the cleaning solution following with instructions that come with the product label.
2. Dip the window washer in the solution, and proceed to give the windows a thorough clean. The aim here is to dissolve the grime. For the very dirty windows, two passes may be needed.
3. The next part is with the Unger Ergotec Ninja Squeegee. Note that the window needs to be wet for this. Wipe the top and side edges of the window with a clean dry cloth, creating a “boundary”. This is aimed at preventing the water from leaking or dripping onto the area you are about to squeegee. Place the Unger Ergotec Ninja Squeegee blade on the dry area, then pull it across the wet surface with an even stroke,
Note that the squeegee needs to be angled, and just a little pressure applied to ensure that there is no bumping, and that you don’t skim over the water. After each stroke, wipe the blade of the squeegee using a cleaning cloth. Remember to always start with a dry section, then overlap the strokes.
4. Wipe the bottom edge of the window using a clean cloth, and you’re done.

When open, it has a coloured that signals this to you. At this point you can change the rubber or adjust the tension. When closed, it will securely hold the rubber in place. You can also adjust the tension here by pulling the rubber. The SmartClip feature also protects the window frames from scratching. Maintenance is also easy, since the clip can be replaced by hand, or you can use screwdriver.

Get The Most Out Of The Unger Ergotec Ninja Squeegee With These Extra Tips
• First inspect the squeegee before you use it. This can be done by simply running your finger down the rubber edge. It should feel perfectly straight across the entire length. It shouldn’t be wavy, stretched- or even too tight. Also ensure that that rubber hangs out both ends of the channel- half a centimetre should suffice. This is to prevent any issue with the window frames, edges and painted surfaces.
• When working with the Unger Ergotec Ninja Squeegee, maintain a base distance of about 7cm. The base distance/angle refers to how the squeegee is positioned, and is the measure between the handle and the glass surface. Keeping an appropriate base distance ensures that the squeegee doesn’t “jump” and leaves behind moisture on the windows, and that way you get streak-free results. Why the 7cm? Well, when the base distance goes to 5cm and below, this slows you down, and may cause streaking. When it goes to 9cm and above, then it increases the chances of patches of solution being left, which you also don’t want to happen.
• Always start the squeegeeing process by “cutting an edge” and creating the dry zone. This can be 1 – 2 cm. That way you don’t keep getting frustrated by window crying, which is as a result of moisture moving from the wet frames onto the just-cleaned sections of the window.
• It’s recommended that you clean straight across. This is not set in stone. Whether you work top-to-bottom, bottom-and-across, it depends on the approach that you prefer. Working across, however, has its distinct advantages including:
i. Making it easier to keep a consistent base angle;
ii. You get better control of the squeegee;
iii. The moisture evenly rolls down the glass, and can even be collected -with a window washer or similar tool- before it reaches the bottom frame;
• You don’t need to use all your muscle when working with the Unger Ergotec Ninja Squeegee. In fact, very little pressure it’s needed.
• Squeegee the windows immediately after they’ve been washed, for better quality results. Allowing them to dry out with cleaning solution still on the glass will force you to redo the washing, as the surface will be sticky and trap more dirt particles.
