The superheroes waved from the building’s roof, and then descended down the building’s south wall washing windows.

“I think everything is awesome now,” said Tyrex Hanford, 7.

“Hi, Batman!” another child shouted.

Others gave thumbs ups.

The grime-fighters ultimately came down to earth, meeting with the young patients and families, and took photos with them.

Then, like any good superhero, they got back to business, returning to the roof, making a second descent down the east wall to clean windows of pediatric patient rooms.
