"I know the children who come here or are staying here might not be having a great day. Just a little smile, something to brighten their day up is great. It makes us feel good and I'm sure it makes them feel wonderful," said Superman, aka window washer Ed Hetrick. 

The workers with Allegheny Window Cleaning Inc. washed the outside windows. It's not the first time superheroes have scaled the building for a little spring cleaning. 

"It's something they'll remember for a long time," Hetrick said.
