Job Description for Window Cleaner

A window cleaner is a person whose career is dedicated to keeping the exterior glass and windows of commercial buildings clean and presentable. While the popular perceptions of window cleaners may envision them working on the exteriors of skyscrapers, the reality is that most window cleaners do plenty of work on single-story structures. Window cleaners typically work for dedicated providers of this service, as most businesses will contract out window cleaning work as part of their scheduled lands and facilities maintenance. People in this career typically work only on exterior window surfaces.
