Which Window Cleaning Method is Right For Your High Rise Building?

At Archer Window Cleaning, our expert team can advise you on the right high level window cleaning methods to achieve the perfect finish on the windows of high rise apartments or buildings.

Making sure your building’s high level windows are kept free of dirt and grime is not only very important for the health and happiness of the tenants working inside, but also for maintaining the property’s appeal to keep it looking professional and attractive from street level.

Getting a spotless finish on the windows of a high rise building can take a little more time and effort, but with the right knowledge, a range of different techniques can be applied to achieve a squeaky clean finish on even the highest windows in the most awkward locations.

Abseiling

On very high or awkwardly shaped buildings abseiling may be the only option suitable for cleaning some of those hard to reach windows.

Sometimes also referred to as rope access window cleaning, this method sees your window cleaner donning ropes and harnesses to freely traverse the side of your building.  Rope access allows your window cleaner to get up very close to the windows to achieve perfect results.

Cherry pickers

Providing your building isn’t in an awkward shape and there is space outside, a cherry picker may be used to give your window cleaner direct access to your high level windows.  All our operatives are trained and qualified in the safe use of hydraulic platform machinery.  Cherry pickers can only reach to a certain height though, any windows higher than this would need to be accessed by abseiling.

Reach & wash system

Our reach and wash water-fed pole systems are an ideal choice for cleaning windows up to a certain height when minimal disruption is required.  Our window cleaners stay at ground level when using the system which retains privacy inside the building as it means no distracting faces turning up unexpectedly at the window on the 12th floor.  The reach and wash system provides a quick and thorough clean which can include window frames, cladding, panelling, fascia, signs and more where required.  The reach and wash system will only reach a certain height and may need to be combined with abseil window cleaning for very high level windows.

Traditional window cleaning

All of the above methods may be combined with traditional window cleaning for the low level windows on a high rise building. Traditional window cleaning methods allow window cleaners to get up close to provide a thorough clean and sparkling finish.

Depending on the size, shape, and features present on your high rise building it is likely that more than one of the techniques above will need to be employed to complete the job.

High level window cleaning requires expert knowledge and training as it poses plenty of health and safety risks.  At Archer Window Cleaning, all our staff is equipped with the best protective clothing and equipment.  The health and safety of both our employees and clients are of paramount importance to us and we ensure that all our staff is highly trained and safety conscious.
