All work will have a full risk and method assessment and risk and method statement will be given and explained to our clients and staff. Work then will be scheduled around our client’s requirements.
External Building Cleaning
Not building are covered by cladding. We also specialise in stone, brick and render cleaning. We will find the best method of cleaning to get the best result while protecting the buildings covering. Once we determine the type of stone brick or render we will then introduce the correct cleaning method for that type of covering. It is important to determine the type of covering as many types of stone, brick and render can be delicate. Once we have determined the covering type we can the find the right cleaning method to get the best result without damaging the surface.
Roof Cleaning Services
We also specialise in commercial roof cleaning. Whether it’s a small commercial tiled roof or 100’s of square meters of industrial clad roof. We have a wealth of experience and knowledge in different methods and equipment.
Xscape Cladding and Roof cleaning
We were asked to Survey and quote for the cleaning the clade roof and that covers the entire building of the Xscape Centre in Milton Keynes. The Xscape Centre has the largest footprint of a single building in the whole of Europe.
We assessed many different access and cleaning options. But the building and roof was covered in algae, which made it unsafe and impossible to walk on which ruled out rope access method.
Once we had completed our risk and method assessment we realised we could only safely clean about 10% of the roof from access equipment.
It was also made tricky as the work would need to be taken place while the Xscape centre was open due to the long opening hours.
So we designed and had manufactured our own cleaning system that could be lowered down the building from the safety of the center of the roof where there was a man safe system we could work from.
After weeks of testing and complete re-designs and adjustments. We ended up with a cleaning system that improved the cleaning reduced the time and cost and massively improved safety and disruption
The job was completed with minimum risk to our staff and the public as well as minimum disruption to the public and the clients day to day operation. The building was cleaned to a very high standard. And to a higher standard then done before by other companies using different methods.
