Thermo Reach & Wash Cleaning System...

Safe and reliable cleaning system

This relatively new method of cleaning has revolutionized the cleaning industry as the benefits outweigh other cleaning methods, by far. By using 100% pure laboratory graded water, which is then pumped through telescopic poles, we are able to access and clean windows to heights in excess of 65 feet (5-6 floors).

There are no Health and Safety risks impeding its use in any way, making it, by far, the safest and most cost effective cleaning method with excellent results.

Hydraulic Platforms (Cherry Pickers)

Reaching and cleaning impossible heights!

Occasionally some buildings cannot be cleaned or are impossible to access by using conventional or Reach and Wash cleaning methods. This may necessitate use of a hydraulic platform vehicle, allowing us to access windows and facades to a maximum height of 100 feet (9-10 floors).Commonly referred to as ‘cherry pickers’ these high level platforms are available to us on a hire only basis. We have access to a wide range of machines that can tackle any height and suit most budgets. All our operators are highly experienced and are fully insured and trained to IPAF standards.
