2.1 Reach and Wash Window Cleaning
We will be using the reach and wash system d to access and clean all of your windows. This method uses only purified tap water and no chemicals or detergents making it 100% safe for people, plants, pet’s, children and the environment it is used in. The water is purified 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 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 to a height of 40ft. 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.
We will endeavour to clean all windows, but if we deem any window/s to be inaccessible or unsafe to clean, we will not clean them.
We do not accept liability for damage caused by decorative or structural defects, or conditions at your property/premises, such as, but not limited to, ill-fitting windows, doors, fascia’s, guttering, window/conservatory trims, unsecured windows and doors, leaking seals, decorative bars stuck on glass, rotting frames, flaking paint, open/broken trickle vents, etc.
Achieving optimum cleaning results may require a few cleans. For example, detergent residues from previous traditional window cleaning methods may initially cause slight spotting. Leaching can also occur from trickle vents, beading and heavily soiled frames, however in most cases, this will cease after a couple of cleans, once the dirt is removed fully from the frame areas.
2.2 Traditional squeegees and ladder
Sometimes, it is still appropriate to use traditional methods in modern day window cleaning. If insides are required, we use squeegee and soapy water to clean. If we do clean your windows inside, we require you to clear windowsills and obstructive furniture, so 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.
2.3 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 cannot. We will use a powerful wet and dry vacuum, which reaches, from the ground up and into your gutting to a maximum height of 40 feet. All 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. Although the machine is powered electrically we have our own supply via leisure batteries and invertor on the van
We carry £5 Million public liability insurance and are a member of the Federation of Window Cleaners.
