Everything You Need to Know About High-Rise Window Cleaning

If you own a high-rise building or work in one, you know how challenging it is to keep the windows clean. Traditional window cleaning methods like rope access, bosun’s chair, and scaffold towers can be time-consuming, dangerous, and expensive. But what if we told you there’s a new, innovative way to clean high-rise windows that’s safe, efficient, and cost-effective?

Here at Power Washing of Tulsa, we use Oklahoma’s only power-washing drone to clean multi-story buildings. In this blog, we’ll tell you everything you need to know about high-rise window cleaning, including the traditional methods and the benefits of our power-washing drone.

Traditional Methods of High-Rise Window Cleaning

Before we dive into the benefits of our power-washing drone, let’s first take a look at the traditional methods of high-rise window cleaning.

Rope Access

Rope access involves trained professionals descending down the side of the building on ropes to clean the windows. This method can be dangerous, time-consuming, and requires highly skilled technicians.

Bosun’s Chair

A bosun’s chair is a suspended seat that is lowered from the roof of the building to clean the windows. This method is less expensive than rope access, but it still requires skilled technicians to operate the equipment and can take a significant amount of time.

Scaffold Towers

Scaffold towers are temporary structures that can be erected around the building to provide access to the windows. While this method is relatively safe and efficient, it can be expensive, especially for larger buildings.

Benefits of a Power-Washing Drone

Now, let’s take a look at the benefits of our power-washing drone and how it can revolutionize high-rise window cleaning.


Using a power-washing drone eliminates the need for technicians to climb up and down the building, which significantly reduces the risk of falls or other accidents. This is especially important for buildings with unique architectural designs or difficult-to-reach windows.


Our power-washing drone can clean windows faster than traditional methods, which means less downtime for your business or tenants. We can also clean windows from a distance, which saves time and reduces the need for scaffolding or other equipment.


Using a power-washing drone can save you money on labor costs and equipment rentals. We can also offer our services at a lower price than traditional methods, which makes it a more cost-effective solution for high-rise window cleaning.
