2.1 Reach and Wash Window Cleaning
We will be using the hot water reach and wash system provided by Ionic Systems Ltd 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 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 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 5-6 storeys or 75ft. 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.
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 can not. 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 will bring our own generator.
Our company and public liability insurance is arranged through “A Plan Ltd” a specialist for window cleaning companies using the Reach and Wash System, our level of cover for public liability is 10 million pound, so be sure your property is in safe hands.
