All the hail the mighty squeegee!

Without it, your windows would be dirty, and we’d be out of a job. A squeegee is a window cleaners best friend, so today’s blog is dedicated to the hardest working window cleaner of all. Here are some little know squeegee facts:

1)      Squeegees were originally used by fishermen to scrape all the blood and guts from the decks of their boats.  Ewwww. Back then they used wooden blades and you wouldn’t want anyone washing your windows with one of them.

2)      The first modern day squeegee was called the Chicago Squeegee. It was big, bulky, heavy, and used two rubber blades held in place by separate screws.

3)      The modern, single blade squeegee was designed and patented by Ettore Steccone in 1936. Fashioned out of brass, it was the first rubber bladed squeegee. Ettore Products Co. is still one of the big hitters in the squeegee market today.

4)      The fastest window cleaner in the west – according to the Guinness Book of records anyway – is Terry Burrows of South Ockendon, Essex. He squeegeed his way through three standard 45” x 45” office windows in 9.24 seconds at the NEC in Birmingham in March 2005. He used an 11.8inch squeegee and 2.4 gallons of water.

5)      If you’re a professional window cleaner, you probably use the “swivel” or “fan” method, skilfully using a series of strokes combined with nimble turns that hold the water away from the leading edge of the squeegee, so that when the turn’s completed in the opposite direction, there’s no water and no dirt left behind. Takes ages to get it right!

6)      During the 9/11 attacks, window cleaner Jan Demczur freed 6 people – including himself – who were trapped in an elevator shaft in the World Trade Centre using his squeegee.

7)      Squeegees don’t just clean your windows, artists use them in screen printing, builders use them to apply grout to tiles, and even stable hands use them to remove the sweat from horses’ coats.

Have you got a squeegee fact for us?
