Our Methods

Reach and Wash Window Cleaning

We use a reach and wash system manufactured by Ionic Systems Ltd to access and clean all of your windows. This method uses only purified tap water and no chemicals or detergents making it 100% safe for people, plants, pets, children and the environment it is used in. The water is purified and transported with us. We will arrive with all the equipment we need to carry out this work. Our purified water is pumped from the van along hose lines and up telescopic poles, which we use to scrub dirt from your frames, sills and glass. All we ask is that access around your property is available and that all your windows and doors are closed. Once cleaned, surfaces are left to dry naturally as is normal in this method, because the water is so pure it dries leaving no marks at all.

We are able to clean to a height of 45ft. We are only able to clean along a clear line of sight, some angles or high recessed surfaces my not be possible to clean.

Traditional squeegees and ladder

Sometimes, it is still appropriate to use traditional methods in modern day window cleaning.  Sometimes, we need to access low-level flat roofs in order to carry out work. We will use a ladder to gain this access.

Insurance

Our company and public liability insurance is arranged through “Alexander Swan” a specialist for window cleaning companies using the Reach and Wash System, our level of cover for public liability is £1 million.
