There are many factors that must be taken into account when cleaning the windows of high rise buildings. These include the shape or design of the building, the obstacles on the property (for example, trees and car parks), the daily activity associated with the building, and weather conditions. Each factor affects the amount of time required to access and clean the windows.
To maximise safety by eliminating the impacts of daily activities and weather condition factors, most Corporate Cleaning Services® high rise window cleaning is done at night and on the weekends.
High rise cleaning is a preventative maintenance measure that is intended to keep windows from deteriorating. Most high rise window cleaning services are performed about twice a year on existing buildings. Newly constructed or remodelled buildings should be cleaned up to four times in their first year of existence and then twice a year thereafter. The reason newer buildings require more regular cleaning during their first year is that the sealant that is used in the windows on newly constructed or remodelled buildings can run and cause stains which may become etched into the glass and cannot be removed.
High rise cleaners must adhere to strict safety standards that are set by the Occupational Safety and Health regulations.
There are many safety concerns associated with high rise cleaning. The major safety concern is making sure the window cleaners do not fall while performing their jobs. To keep this from happening, the window cleaners are attached to two separate security lines which are anchored to the roof of the building. To reduce the risk of injury and damage to the people and property below, every piece of equipment that is used to clean the windows is attached to the people cleaning the windows. Even if the equipment were to slip out of the hands of the cleaners, it will not fall to the ground.
