Had a call from SpanSet (the safety training provider & maker of harnesses and all fall restraints) at their head office. The skylights were dirty and not letting enough light through, could we clean them?
Another firm said they couldn’t be cleaned and needed replacing, at a cost of £25000.00 and that cleaning them would cause all sorts of problems and pull the face off the fibreglass panels.
Not a straightforward job as we couldn’t actually walk on the roof but we cleaned them and the client is very happy!
Not all works go to plan and this was certainly one of them.
We had two sizeable buildings to clean all cladding & window units, with a very tight deadline.
Everything was sloped and though this had been pointed out on the first day all parties wanted to proceed.
The MEWP kept tilting out, driving really slowly and we weren’t gaining anything at all. One of the largest window cleaning companies in the country was contacted and the works had to be cleaned from inside, using a counterbalance weighted trolley system.
