Window cleaning may not sound like a challenging job, but the men and women that get up every morning to clean skyscrapers are a different kind of daredevil…

Cleaning the tallest building in the world
The Burj Khalifa, in the UAE is still the world’s highest building at 829.8m tall almost 300m taller than the second highest building in the world, the One World Trade Centre in NYC, at 550m.
Office windows – They are a portal to the outside world.
The views seen through windows affect people’s moods.

Commercial Window cleaning – Not only is it hard work, but it can be down right dangerous.
