Our Methods:

Reach and Wash Window Cleaning

 

We will be using the reach and wash system to access and clean all of your windows. This method uses only purified water and no chemicals or detergents making it 100% safe for people, plants, pets, children and the environment that it is used in. The water is purified at our base and transported with us in our vans. We will arrive with all the equipment we need to carry out this work. Our purified water is pumped from the van along hose lines and up telescopic poles, which we use to scrub dirt from your frames, sills and glass. All we ask is that access around your property is available and that all of your windows and doors are closed. Once cleaned, surfaces are left to dry naturally as is normal in this method; because the water is so pure it dries leaving no marks at all.

We are able to clean up to a height of 4-5 storeys or 60ft. We are only able to clean along a clear line of sight, some angles or high recessed surfaces my not be possible to clean. We also use this method to clean conservatory roofs and fascia and soffits.

Traditional Squeegees and Ladder

Sometimes, it is still appropriate to use traditional methods in modern day window cleaning. If internal cleaning is required, we use a squeegee and soapy water to clean. If we do clean your windows inside we require you to clear windowsills and obstructive furniture so that we can continue with our work efficiently and safely. Sometimes we need to access low-level flat roofs in order to carry out work, we will use a ladder to gain this access.

 

Gutter Clearing with Industrial Vacuum

By using a vacuum we are able to clear your gutters from the ground and reach difficult angles and heights that a ladder can not. We will use a powerful wet and dry vacuum, which reaches from the ground up and into your guttering to a maximum height of 40 feet. All of the waste is sucked out of the gutters and into the machine, just like when you vacuum your carpets. When we have finished, the waste is taken away with us. We bring our own generator to power the machine.

 

Insurance

Our company and public liability insurance is specialist for cleaning companies using the Reach and Wash System, our level of cover for public liability is £5 million.

 

Text Messaging Service

You may wish to be contacted each time the day before we come for access or other reasons. We will text alert you at 7pm the evening before we are due.
