Have you ever wondered how height cleaning is done? And it is that there are tall buildings or even skyscrapers where of course it is essential to clean their windows.
We know that the appearance of a clean building is everything, because at first glance when we see a shining skyscraper, it attracts more attention than one that is completely dirty.
Right in this post we will show you everything you need to know about the height cleaning service.
What does the Heights Cleaning Service consist of?
This service consists of cleaning the external part of a tall building or skyscraper, which are impossible to sanitize from the internal part of it. Within the cleaning of heights, tasks such as: washing and drying glass, cleaning facades and canopies are included.
Due to the complexity of this activity and the risk involved in cleaning from heights, this is done by a cleaning company specialized in rengøring from heights. The professional sent to clean the building must have the necessary equipment and materials to carry out this work at a height of 12, 15 or 30 meters.
Why is Height cleaning important?
The truth is that glass structures such as buildings need constant maintenance. Every day, pollution and external agents such as rain, bird feces, are lodged on the windows of buildings, leaving them dirty, full of dust and without a very good presentation.
According to LM2 Cleaning, window cleaning is a task that must be considered in the maintenance of the building, since from the beginning the presentation of a building is vital to achieve the sale or rental of the same and later its conservation.
This job is considered high risk due to the possibility of fatal falls, according to Legal Medicine, in Colombia in 2017 alone, more than 100 vertical workers died from falls from height.
For this reason it is important that the work is carried out by a specialized cleaning company that can provide all the protective equipment to provide the service.
What is the equipment used to clean heights?
The window cleaning specialist should bring with them:
- Protective helmet
- Waist and leg harness for safety in case of emergencies
- Rigid ropes that can support at least 2 tons and that are as long as possible depending on the height of the building
- Pulley that allows the movement of raising and lowering the ropes
- Platform or swing to move with the rest of the implements
- Brush that has soft bristles so as not to scratch the glass
- Multipurpose soap and water
- Window cleaner
- Rubber squeegee to remove excess water and soap and finish cleaning
What are the safety measures that height cleaning professionals must exercise?
As we have already mentioned, the danger is imminent when performing this service from above. It is for this reason that professionals must follow these precautionary and safety measures:
- The platforms or swings cannot exceed the weight stipulated by the manufacturer.
- The worker must get on the platform or swing while on the ground and must be secured accordingly.
- Cleaning implements must also be secured to prevent them from falling into the void.
In the event that weather conditions hinder the work, it is necessary to stop immediately or not carry out the activity.
