Commercial Window Cleaning
At Wrights we use the very latest in Waterfed Pole Technology.
You may ask “Why are Waterfed Poles so popular today?”
A waterfed pole uses a very high level of pure water and when pure water flows over a surface, it absorbs all the existing substances on it such as dust and dirt, leaving a smear free surface.
Pure water doesn’t leave any residue, unlike most other window cleaning methods, so there’s no need to wipe any contaminants off and windows stay cleaner… for much longer!
Health & Safety
A waterfed pole eliminates the health and safety concerns involving the safe use of ladders because waterfed poles can be safely operated by a single window cleaner from the ground. This system is the safest window cleaning method for reaching and washing exterior high windows in UK.
A waterfed pole can reach windows above sensitive ground areas such as lawns and flower beds and reach previously inaccessible areas such as over canopies.
They can extend up to 75ft for total window cleaner safety and reduce disturbance to any occupants of the premises we work on.
Glass roofs and canopies themselves can be cleaned with the use of a waterfed pole, all from the safety of the ground.
This also reduces the dangers of working on glass roofs and canopies if it is not accessible by a Access Platform or Chery Picker.
Office blocks and Retail Stores can be cleaned, even when their car parks are full or they are next to a public walkway.
Using ladders in these scenarios can lead to a plethora of Health and Safety issues.
Window frames and sills are left much cleaner using a pure water system.
In addition, no damage is caused to the window frames, sills, or the building compared with the older method of leaning ladders against them.
Lastly, and most importantly, for Professional Window Cleaning Contractors in the UK it is vital that we adhere to the UK Health and Safety Regulations.
Primarily applicable is the Working at Height Legislation 2005 (amended 2007).
The Working at Height legislation (2005) can be found at the government website opsi.gov.uk.
Although the Regulations were put into place in 2005, the guidelines are largely common sense: for example, work must be properly planned and supervised appropriately.
Equipment must be checked before use and scaffolds and ladders must be used with safety precautions in place (like guard rails).
Anyone working at height, or employing people to work at height, should be aware of the basic legislation – it’s designed to avoid fatalities on the job, and at Wrights Cleaning that’s exactly what we do!
Waterfed Pole Technology literally cuts out huge amounts of danger that is so prolific in the Window Cleaning Industry, as there is no safer place for a Window Cleaner than on the ground.
If your Window Cleaner is still using ladders on a Commercial or Industrial property, and particularly where your employees or the general public may come into contact with him/her, then you need to ask the question “Is my Window Cleaner compliant with the latest Health & Safety Regulations?”
- If the answer is no, then your company could be liable for any accidents which occur on your premises.
