Window washers dressed as Spider-Man, Batman, and Superman join forces to fight grime.

On Tuesday, Oct. 8, window washers from Delta Window Cleaning in Santa Clara, Calif., will be at . But, these are not your everyday window washers. These brave wall climbers will be dressed as Spider-Man, Batman, and Superman.

When three window washers dressed as Spider-Man visited Packard Children’s last May, everyone across the hospital was thrilled at the sight. “It was a big hit with the kids and staff,” said Efrain Guerra, director of the hospital’s housekeeping services. “So, this time we talked to Delta about letting some other superheroes get in on the action.” That means that on Tuesday, the hospital will be abuzz with wonder as children and staff come face-to-face with three of America’s greatest crusaders. “This time, the enemy is grime, not crime,” said Patrick Connor, administrative director of support services, “and we know these legends will brighten everyone’s day.”
