Window cleaning, even special window cleaning and building cleaning works are inseparable parts of our projects usually, but sometimes when some special cleaning require professionals for the perfect result, then our abseiler team is ready to provide the highest, sparkle clean quality on any, even the most neglected glass and building surfaces too. Our team carried out a sparkle clean quality window cleaning work on the fully glazed atrium at The Marriott Hotel – Kensington, where (caused by a tricky access) these glass surfaces haven’t been cleaned in the last 7-8 years. As some glass surfaces, skylights, atriums, and building parts ..etc can be cleaned only by using special access solutions, our abseiler team has been asked to carry out professional window cleaning on numerous neglected windows and glass surfaces throughout London. Some skylights on a residential property in Lambeth couldn’t be cleaned in the last 10 years or so, which project was a real challenge for our professionals, but the final high quality result provides a stunning view to the sky again. Another challenging project was a fully glazed building surface at Holborn, where huge glass units (in terrible conditions) had to be ready for the hand-over procedure. As the living plants on each level of the building are fed with a special fertiliser which overflows in all rains, its residue leave awkward marks on the glass surfaces This heavy contamination removed perfectly, providing a sparkle clean quality for the hand-over procedure. Some heavily contaminated (by the time and the recent refurbishment works) glass units on the Churchill Theatre – Bromley, also required our professional assistance to get back the crystal clear view to the park at the back side of the building. But our abseiler team successfully carried out many other special window cleaning works in the previous period at The Athenaeum Hotel – Piccadilly, Simon Harrison /wearable design/ – South Bank, Mansion Boulevard and Pioneer Building at Elephant & Castle…etc
