High Rise Window Cleaning
What is covered?
We use one of the following methods for high rise window cleaning:
- Water fed poles using pure ea water for heights up to 70 Feet
- Mewp Access/Cherry pickers for height up to 130 Feet
- Rope Access (Abseiling) – any height
High Rise Window Cleaning
Health and Safety should always be the first consideration when undergoing any work at height. Because of this, water fed poles are by far the most popular choice for cleaning windows up to heights of 70 feet. The benefits are many. Pure water technology cleans the glass and frames in one operation from the safety of the ground by one operative. As a result, trees and lamposts pose fewer access problems to those of MEWPS (Cherry Pickers). Overhanging obstructions can restrict the cleaning of some windows which can often overcome by cleaning from the inside.
MEWPS / Cherry Pickers
MEWPS (mobile elevating work platforms), or cherry pickers as they are more commonly known, offer a variety of choice when it comes to cleaning windows. There are occasions when windows cannot be accessed by water fed poles for various reasons. The most obvious reason is heights over 70 feet. However, they also enable us to clean windows in otherwise inaccessible areas. One type of MEWP is a Scissor Lift. These are useful for all application types which need a vertical lift and do not require outreach. Articulating boom lift platforms allow us to work in really hard to reach areas or at heights up to 130 feet. These lifts allow for users to access small areas and confined spaces. A really useful MEWP is a spider lift. These are on tracks and can go over ground that wouldn’t be possible for other MEWPS. One of the greatest uses in high rise internal window cleaning. This is because they can compact to a size that is small enough to go through a standard door size!
Rope Access / Abseiling
When it comes to height over 130 feet abseiling is the next choice to consider. However, assessments should be made to establish whether rope access is the appropriate method for cleaning the windows. The most intrinsically safe means of access should always be the first consideration. Because of this abseiling to clean windows is always a last resort. All our window cleaners who carry out rope access are fully trained to do so. As a result, they have the appropriate knowledge, experience, and practical skills for this type of window cleaning. Because it is highly important for window cleaning companies to carry out rope access operations safely, we will always carry out a full site-specific risk assessment and method statement.
