How is Rope Access Used for Window Cleaning? - Abseiling Services


When it comes to keeping your property looking its best, rope access window cleaning is a great way to keep your windows spotless. This unique method of cleaning your windows is one of the most effective ways of keeping large glass areas and tall buildings free from dirt and smudges. 


However, abseiling window cleaning requires specialist equipment and training, so it is important to understand exactly what it is before being able to establish if it is the right solution for your property. 


How is Rope Access Used for Window Cleaning?


Although it requires a range of specialist skills and equipment, rope access window cleaning can be a very simple solution to carry out for professionals. Due to the nature of abseiling window cleaning jobs, it requires a very high level of safety and training to undertake. 


Your cleaning technicians will securely attach themselves to the top of the building before slowly abseiling down the side, thoroughly cleaning each window as they pass it. The harness and ropes used in abseil window cleaning allow complete freedom to move up and down, as well as across the building as required. 


What are the benefits of rope access window cleaning?


Thanks to the versatility that comes with abseil window cleaning, the process is able to provide property owners with a wide range of benefits. Some of the most significant include:

1. Complete coverage 

One of the biggest benefits of rope access window cleaning is that it can cover almost every area of the building. The flexibility and manoeuvrability ensure there are very few spots that the cleaner will not be able to reach, meaning they are able to access far more than traditional ladders or suspended platforms can. 


2. Cost-effective 


Not only does window cleaning abseiling give you better cleaning, but it is also a more cost-effective solution. Although it is highly skilled work, it requires less equipment and personnel, which ensures it is a more affordable solution compared to other cleaning methods. 


3. Complex buildings


Rope access window cleaning is also one of the most effective solutions when it comes to cleaning the windows on more complex-shaped buildings. The cleaning technician will be able to position themselves in the required areas to ensure they can clean every window. 


4. Minimal disruption 


Another major benefit of rope access window cleaning is that it helps you to minimise the disruption that typically comes with these essential maintenance tasks. Unlike alternative options, there is no disruption at ground level, ensuring the pavement and walkways remain free. Setting up the equipment is also a very quick process, and your cleaning technician will be able to swiftly set up and pack away.
