Crew members from Braco Window Cleaning washed windows Monday morning on the Lexington Financial Center, 250 West Main Street. The crew was on the West Vine Street side of the building, which created a warped reflection of the Central Bank Building.
Cliff Kennedy, Howard Newby and Chris Scholer work for Braco Window Cleaning and wash the windows on the 31-floor building once a year.
It takes a crew of three men, hanging from swinging chair seats, about a week to wash the nearly 5,000 windows using a mixture of industrial soap and water. They can go from top to bottom in about an hour.
“This is one of the hardest buildings we do because of the slanted roof at the top,” said Kennedy, a member of the crew.
