Whether you manage, own or work in a high rise building, it's nice to have clean and smudge-free windows. However, unless you have Spiderman's ability to swing between buildings firing webbing from your wrist, you're going to need to get your high rise windows cleaned professionally from time to time.
Luckily, there's no shortage of grime-fighting professional window washers who can clean your high rise windows for you. Costs can vary according to building type, so if you're looking for a commercial window cleaning solution, it's important to understand what's involved in high rise window cleaning.
What's involved in high rise window cleaning?
High rise window cleaning involves using specialised height safety equipment to reach hard-to-get-to windows. Professional window cleaners are often required to work in dangerous, physically demanding conditions. They must be practised and proficient in managing the risks that come with being suspended high up in the air.
For that reason, you should only engage commercial window cleaning companies that are fully insured and accredited. While the goal of high rise window cleaning is to get your multi-story windows sparkling clean, the ability to rig up and work safely is essential. Anchor point fitting, testing and inspection may be necessary, so make sure that your window cleaners can walk the talk.
At Bax Windows, our friendly team of high rise window cleaners are equipped for both rope access and elevated work platform window cleaning, and are fully insured and accredited to work safely on buildings of any height. We prepare Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS) and Job Safety Analysis (JSA) reports before commencing all high rise window cleaning jobs.
What goes into a high rise window cleaning quote?
Many factors go into a high rise window washing quote including the size of your building, the style and type of windows, the number of window panes that need to be cleaned, the safety processes and risks involved, and the weather at the time of cleaning.
Although there's no one-size-fits-all pricing for high rise window cleaning, since different building types have different maintenance needs , the above factors will typically affect your high rise window cleaning cost.
Other factors that influence cost include the speed of the clean and the number of window panes a company can clean in an hour. Most companies will also take into account how much time it'll take between each drop when moving to the next level.
If a high rise window clean needs to be completed at an unusual time of day - say, when nobody is in the building or as an emergency call-out - this can increase the cost. The amount of time elapsed since the last window cleaning is another consideration as well as the type of dirtiness on the windows (dust, dirt, grease, spider webs, bird poo, etc).
Most high rise window cleaning services can be tailored to suit your unique needs and high rise building type. Some companies also offer discounts for combining commercial window cleaning services with other maintenance solutions such as gutter cleaning and pressure cleaning.
