The twice-yearly cleaning will take three weeks, weather permitting.
It's a very big job to wash the over 5,500 windows on the Williams tower. The tallest building in Oklahoma contracts Budget Glass to do the job.
'It takes an experienced crew like the one we have here today right around three weeks to clean it,' said Williams Company's Jeff Pounds.
The two-man team descends in a gondola 32 different times to cover the building, each 'drop' taking over an hour to complete. Although busy, window washer Stephen Hulsey admits to taking an occasional break the appreciate the view.
'The best view is at 5:30 in the morning,' he said, 'right before daybreak and the lights are on downtown, it's just gorgeous.'
