1.     Abseiling Is Ideal For High-Rise Buildings

Do you have high-rise office blocks, tower blocks or residential building? Abseiling may be the solution for your commercial window clean.

Abseil window cleaning, also known as rope access cleaning, is a great solution if you have large complex residential and commercial properties.

It doesn’t have the limitations that other window cleaning services may have with working at height.

Therefore, it’s suitable for all high-rise buildings and even for those buildings that pose challenges in architecture.

Essentially there are no height restrictions due to them not having to need machinery at your buildings ground level. This makes it the ideal solution for high-level window cleaning.

2.     It Avoids Disruption

Different commercial window cleaning services can involve closures when cleaning windows and structures.

With abseiling, since there isn’t any machinery involved at ground level, office workers and tenants can continue with no interruptions to their days.

Abseil window cleaning avoids interruption by ensuring local pedestrians aren’t being disrupted, this is particularly important because access in developed areas can be restricted.

3.     Abseil Window Cleaning Is A Safe Option For Hard To Reach Areas

When you’re walking around London it’s not hard to notice how architecture has evolved with their unique designs, shapes, and sizes.

There’s no doubt that you’ll see rounded buildings, awkward angles, and domed roofs. It’s what makes London’s skyline so breath-taking.

Abseiling as a window cleaning solution can be used to clean most hard to reach areas by having rope access techniques and no machinery at ground level.

So, regardless of your building has hard to reach areas or awkward angles, an abseiling window clean service can provide you with an exceptional clean.


4.     Health And Safety When Abseiling

With the heights involved, health and safety must be considered. Therefore, extensive measures are put in place to make sure that abseiling can be performed safely and efficiently.

During the process, safety is considered. A survey and a risk assessment of the site is performed to identify any challenges that might arise.

Accreditations to look out for are CHAS, ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and for a commercial window cleaning company to be safe contractor approved.

5.     Abseil Cleaning Delivers Great Results Quickly

With the use of specialist safety equipment and harnesses, abseilers can lower themselves down from the top of your building to reach any areas that may be required to clean.

Residential block window cleaning on larger sites takes time to thoroughly clean windows. Services such as cherry picker window cleaning could cause more disturbance on larger sites as the machinery moves with the cleaners.

Abseiling allows the window cleaners to be completely separate in their movements, saving you time and hassle.



Overall, abseil window cleaning provides an exceptional clean by being ideal for a variety of buildings, angles, and heights.
