I think at the time they have finished cleaning, the parts they did now will already be dirty again.

well, having all that sand and a desert, it won't be an easy task, but I am sure they ll manage to somehow figure out some permanent solution these days to keep it shining.

However, as long as so many other constructions sights are up and running, that will kind of a challenge for now, but sooner or later it will be all history. Looks stunning though

Hopefully you guys can get a close-up shot when they're cleaning those few really dirty windows on the 26th floor (or maybe 25th). it'll be nice to see the difference for sure. Better yet if one or two were done and the last one or two were still dirty.
