World's fastest window cleaner challenges Europe's best to take his crown

The world's fastest window cleaner Terry 'Turbo' Burrows is challenging Europe's window cleaners to beat his record at a contest during The Cleaning Show in the UK this March.

Burrows has held the Guinness World Record for 10 years and this year's challenge will be part of a new international window cleaning competition, The Window Cleaning World Cup.

Participants will be tasked with cleaning three 114.3 cm x 114.3 cm office windows set in a frame with a 300 mm long squeegee and nine litres of water in the fastest time.

They must also remember to wipe the window sill, and any smears will incur time penalties which are then added to their final time.

As well as getting the chance to try and break Terry's world record of just 9.14 seconds set in 2009 the fastest window cleaner over the three days will win a cash prize of £1,000 (€1,100).

They will also be officially declared the winner of the Window Cleaning World Cup on behalf of their home nation.

There is a separate World Cup title for women, carrying the same cash prize, plus the chance to beat the Guinness World Record set by Deborah Morris in 2011 of 16.28 seconds.

The Cleaning Show takes place from March 19-21 at Excel in London. Visit cleaningshow.co.uk
