ServiceMaster Clean offers interior and exterior window cleaning in Vancouver and across the Lower Mainland. Whether we’re washing windows on a 40 story high rise in Vancouver or a townhouse complex in Richmond, our window cleaning crews are experts at making your glass crystal clear. This includes nearly all types of windows on all floors of a building. Window washing can have a dramatic effect on the appearance of a building, both inside and out. Clean glass is certain to make the building look much more attractive from the outside. Looking from the inside, exterior window washing allows more light into individual units.
Safety is a large part of exterior window washing. Our window cleaning technicians are certified in fall protection and SPRAT Rope Access, armed with a complete site specific safety plans for each job site.
Rope Access System
We use industrial rope access for high-rise window cleaning in Vancouver because it is the safest and most efficient way to work on the side of a high rise building. Rope access technicians are certified through one of two bodies, SPRAT or IRATA. Both systems require workers to pass third party training and testing to obtain their certification. Rope Access workers maintain logbooks and undergo ongoing training, testing and upgrading.
Technicians are always securely fastened to at least two independent rope systems, a primary working line and backup safety system. In fact the inclusion of a backup system makes the chances of an accidental fall almost non-existent. Rope access technicians can self-rescue or rescue teammates if they encounter trouble. These systems are also very flexible, allowing users to move around freely. Workers using rope access systems can also transfer horizontally between rope systems while suspended, increasing their ability to work a large area quickly. This makes it safer and more efficient than bosun chairs or swing stages.
Pure Water Window Cleaning
Pure Water Systems removes impurities in the water before it is fed through a water fed pole and brush. These systems greatly reduce water spots on windows from window washing, which is one of the most common complaints in Low Rise window washing.
Health and Safety
Service Master Property Services’s promotes a culture of health and safety. First and foremost, we consider the health and welfare of our staff in everything that we do. Our field crews meet or exceed all safety standards and Worksafe BC’s regulations. Our dedication to safety begins at the hiring phase, where we select only the most safety conscious applicants. After we’ve hire the right people for the job, we provide them with detailed orientation and safety training. New employees go through a detailed safety training process, before they are released into the field. We have a full time health and safety officer who orients and oversees our staff and who performs random site inspections. All jobs require a safety plan to be completed before work commences. Our safety first culture demands that if it cannot be done safely, it cannot be done at all.
