Highrise cleaning in Calgary & Edmonton
Unique qualities of High Rise Cleaning
Cleaning a high rise building on the inside is much like cleaning an ordinary building. Due to the many floors it contains, however, cleaning a high rise building can take more cleaning supplies and a longer time period to accomplish. Cleaning the outside of a high rise building is quite a different story, however.
Due to the extreme height involved, cleaning the outside of a high rise is a specialized job. There are certain criteria that must be followed in order perform a high rise cleaning efficiently as well as safely. Typically undertaken about once a year for cleaning the building itself, cleaning the windows of a high rise building usually occurs more often. How often depends on a number of factors including the weather and environmental conditions.
Because there are oxidants and other containments in the air, windows might need to be cleaned with a special solution at periodic intervals. After this intense cleaning with specialized solutions designed to strip the contaminants and oxidants from the depths of the window pores, a sealant is often applied that is designed to slow the process of contaminants dulling the window surfaces.
High rise cleaning demands specialized equipment as well. Scaffolding enables workers to safely reach a portion of the glass. Workers are also outfitted completely with safety harnesses, safety cables, and hard hats. This set up enables the workers to reach great heights when involved in high rise cleaning.
For those windows that cannot be reached using scaffolding erected on the ground, there is scaffolding that is suspended from the roof using a forklift or other apparatus designed to ensure the scaffolding's stability. Due to the safety factors involved when working at such great heights, it is important that the weather is stable when attempting high rise cleaning. High winds can make it impossible to engage in high rise cleaning as can rain or other inclement weather occurrences.
Challenging yet Possible
Although high rise cleaning can be challenging, there are ways to accomplish the task while maintaining a safe environment for both workers and onlookers as well. In addition, it is also possible to protect and beautify both the glass and other exterior building materials when engaged in high rise cleaning.
Ever wonder how those windows on the thirtieth floor get so clean? It's not by accident. Highly trained leaning crews take care to keep the view pristine.
