The Evolution of High Rise Window & Facade cleaning has Arrived

Up till now high rise window and facade cleaning has only been done by professional cleaning companies who specialize in Abseiling, skylifts, and for smaller buildings have expensive scaffolding implemented or the use of boom and/or other lifting equipment. It has been said that high rise window cleaning is one of the six most dangerous professions. Furthermore due to the expense these tasks are done less frequently leaving windows becoming dirty for longer periods of time.

With the innovation of KTV Working Drones and the development of this solution using drones eliminates the need for abseilers with rope access and skylifts making it a safer, more efficient and cost effective solution than the tradition methods


KTV Working Drones are now being implemented commercially globally  for window and facade cleaning and currently are in development to evolve the solutions to painting with drones in the coming months.

For now we have commercialized the use for  window cleaning where  it can achieve up to 1500 square meters per hour utilizing the KTV working Drone eco friendly (when mixed with 75% water) solution self cleaner. It can also be used with a full eco-friendly solution of pure water of up to 500square meters per hour.

KTV working Drone is in further development to achieve heights of beyond 50m and give capacity to massive 600 meters in elevation 

Advantages using KTV Working Drone

For Facade cleaning the drone solution uses two methods

  1. If the facade is traditionally dirty the drone applies a solution self cleaner by foaming it onto the facade with low pressure. The self cleaner agent is a special formulated cleaner that was developed and used since 2015 by our parent company KTV Group. If the buildings haven’t been cleaned and/or are extremely dirty the process is to clean the facade and windows with the clean-water method.

  2.  The clean-water method in short is purified water with reverse osmosis, heated to 70 degrees, and applied with high pressure by the  KTV Working Drone. This means the cleaning of Windows is eco-friendly being cleaned without chemicals and windows stay cleaner over time. By using the pure water method windows stay cleaner longer over time. It also eliminates the risk of surface wear such as streaks caused by the more traditional , more dangerous manual cleaning methods.


KTV Group first started to use drones commercially in Norway for a new and more innovative way to provide a service for cleaning of windows and facades at heights.

In early 2022  KTV working Drone was founded where it was launched first in  Norway and now internationally.. With unprecedended interest from around the globe  KTV working Drone has quickly been able to establish a footprint in over 16 countries with many more joining the franchise in months to come. 

Development of the KTV Working Drone originated way back in 2015, where many changes were needed to make the drone commercial. KTV Working Drone R&D department has developed and continues to evolve a unique drone with tailor-made and uniquely adapted mounting equipment for us with specially designed cleaning equipment..

The drone has been extensively tested and commercialized for use with window and facade cleaning and has been used operationally since 2020 by the KTV Group in Norway.
