Traditional window cleaning in the past has been
carried out using Ladders.
We have many years experience carrying out
traditional window cleaning in this way.
How ever,In recent times there has been the
introduction of the Reach & Wash System which
allows upper floor external windows to be cleaned from
the safety of the ground without the use of ladders.

|Hygiene & control of infection,
We have much experience working in environments where hygiene is of crucial importance. Measures taken depend
on the particular area being worked. On Hospital Premises,we have spent many occasions in operating theatre
environments where it is necessary to discard normal work wear and redress with theatre gowns and over shoes.
Equipment needs to be disinfected before entry to these areas and of course water needs to be clean.
On ward areas, regular hand cleansing and changing of water before going from one ward to another is important to
prevent cross infection. Before entering areas on general wards, enquiries should be made to the ward sister as to
restricted access and which areas protective aprons should be worn. All aprons must be discarded to allocated
disposal on exit of each isolated area.
