    Works Carried Out

    This building is cleaned using our hot water Ladderless Reach and Wash 65ft water-fed pole systems, this method is used to clean the windows which are done regularly and also the cladding which is cleaned annually. There are a number of challenges associated with this contract, the fact that it is situated on a busy main road means that our operatives need to arrive on-site early morning to ensure minimal disruption is caused to the residents and surrounding area.
