Device having a renewable blade surface for treating a target surface

Dispositif muni d'une surface à lame renouvelable afin de traiter une surface cible


A device for treating a target surface, such as occurs when cleaning a window. The device has a squeegee blade or other member to apply pressure to the target surface. A sheet movably covers the blade, to present a fresh covering to the target surface with each use. The fresh surface provides for improved removal of the liquid from, or improved treatment of the liquid on, the target surface. Additionally or alternatively, the sheet may comprise a prewetted substrate to apply the liquid to the target surface.
L'invention concerne un dispositif destiné à traiter une surface cible, par exemple lors du nettoyage d'une fenêtre. Le dispositif possède une lame de raclette ou un autre élément destiné à exercer une pression sur la surface cible. Une feuille recouvre la lame de manière amovible, afin de présenter un nouveau revêtement pour la surface cible après chaque utilisation. La nouvelle surface permet d'améliorer le retrait du liquide présent sur la surface cible, ou d'améliorer le traitement du liquide sur ladite surface cible. En outre ou en variante, la feuille peut comprendre un substrat pré-humidifié destiné à appliquer le liquide sur la surface cible.
