Clean windows improve the aesthetic appearance of a property and help towards the general maintenance of a building. Spectrum has extensive experience cleaning the windows on high-rise blocks. Our operatives are highly trained and are able to use a range of techniques to access all windows on a high rise.
The techniques used by our operatives allow them to access windows that would be impossible to reach using other methods. Often requiring extensive training and skill, these systems give our window cleaners the flexibility they need to access every single window on large domestic or commercial properties.
Cleaning windows at height presents a number of challenges. Operatives working on tower block window cleaning projects not only need to overcome access issues, they also need to contend with the weather. This makes safety an incredibly important consideration on all of our high-rise window cleaning jobs.
When preparing for a project of this type, our operatives will select the most appropriate access method for the job. Our team of skilled window cleaners have a range of techniques to choose from. This means they’re able to use any approach necessary to get the job done.
Abseil Window Cleaning
Abseil window cleaning is a versatile and flexible cleaning method. Abseil cleaning uses operatives working via rope access to reach high and awkwardly-positioned windows. This method of high-level window cleaning allows operatives to work quickly and safely. Spectrum operatives that specialise in abseil window cleaning are highly trained in all relevant areas of health and safety.
Abseil window cleaning is a fast and efficient way of high-level window and skyscraper cleaning. As abseil cleaning uses rope access, it often negates the need for heavily machinery and scaffolding. This can save clients a lot of time and money and help to bring cleaning projects in on budget and within schedule.
Window Cleaning Using Cradles
A cradle system can be used to clean windows and maintain the exterior of a high-rise block. This method is often used when other cleaning techniques are not possible. Many high-rise blocks have cradle systems pre-installed. These are generally either rope cradles, hand-winched cradles or electric cradles. Whichever type of system is in place, our highly-trained team will be able to use it to clean the windows on the block.
Cherry pickers or MEWP Window Cleaners
Cherry pickers, or MEWPs, provide operatives with an elevated mobile platform from which to clean windows. This can be a good option for cleaning windows when operatives need to use a cleaner’s scraper or when a lot of water is required for the job.
Like BMU window cleaning, cherry pickers give window cleaners a solid platform from which to work. This means that, as well as cleaning the windows on a block, operatives can carry out other maintenance tasks on the building. If the property requires cleaning or repairs to its gutters, roofline, balconies, cladding or render, this can be carried out at the same time as the window clean. This can save property management companies time and money and minimise disruption for the tenants of the building.
