    Cradle Window Cleaning in Manchester and the North West

    Cradle Window Cleaning Services

    HCS Cleaning Services carry out cradle window cleaning tasks from permanently installed cradles on many large high rise buildings in Manchester and the North West.

    BMU (Building maintenance unit) cradle systems allow our operatives to access the outside of buildings at high levels.

    These access cradles are mainly used by high rise window cleaning companies and it is very important that our window cleaning operatives have the correct training and qualifications to use the cradles professionally and safely.

    An effective way to maintain a high rise building

    Using a cradle system to clean windows can be an effective way to maintain a high rise building where other window cleaning methods are not possible.

    You have confidence that your expensive cradle systems are in good hands, all operatives are fully compliant and trained.

    What Is Cradle Window Cleaning?

    HCS’ cradle window cleaning service involves cleaning the windows of very large high rise buildings using a specialist cable attached platform, which can navigate the side of buildings for cleaning and maintenance services. These buildings are often too large for regular abseil cleaning work to be carried out and are fitter with specialist pulleys and high tensile steel cables which hang over the sides from the top. These cables allow the operatives to lower the cradle they stand on to reach and clean every window and cladding facade on the building safely and effectively.

    What are the Benefits Of Cradle Window Cleaning?

    Cradle window cleaning can be safer and more time-efficient than abseil window cleaning, as the window cleaners can carry a lot more cleaning fluids and equipment up with them to reach every aspect of the building. As they can carry more up, they don’t need to refill buckets as often, so they can cover a lot more surface area in less time. With a cradle in place, high rise buildings are much easier to clean without any height restrictions as most abseil operatives need very specific training to abseil above certain heights. As cradle window cleaning is much safer than rope access, our clients can be confident in the quality of the clean and that all staff carrying out the work are doing so under much safer conditions.
