What is commercial building cleaning? I can tell you that it is not a simple bucket and sponge job. A lot of commercial buildings have high rise features and require access equipment on site to clear the area thoroughly. Of course, to do this, health and safety requirements must be met and the correct PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) needs to be worn by those completing the work.
External building management is considered in every annual budget these days. Long gone are the days or simply fixing things when they break. The old saying “If it isn’t broke, don’t fix it” certainly isn’t a big player anymore.
Commercial building cleaning will usually consist of the following steps: On site consultation, Removal of debris, Application of cleaning chemicals and an Anti-corrosive coating.
On Site ConsultationAny cladding cleaning contractor worth their salt will complete a thorough on site consultation before they accept or quote for any work. It seems quite obvious really but you should never accept work without seeing it. No matter what your circumstances. The consultation gives you (the contractor) the opportunity to identify the severity of the work. You are able to identify if access equipment will be needed, if there is any damage – if there is, an on site cladding repair may be required. You are also able to check for corrosion and get an understanding of how often the building is cleaned.
Recently we received a referral from an office cleaning company in Milton Keynes as they were asked to provide a quotation for the external building cleaning. Unfortunately it was not something that they could provide. We were more than happy to assist with the project and we have continued to work closely with them to this day.
