Easter is always one of the busiest times of the year at All Clean Services, we have contracts to clean windows at some of the most prestigious Universities around the UK – including Greenwich University in London and Cambridge University.
Whilst the Universities are closed during the Easter break, we carry out our regular window cleaning contract, all within a relatively short timescale, ensuring that All Clean Services’ high standards of quality are maintained.
A University is no different to an office building or shopping centre – in that during the winter months when sunlight is in short supply and the days are short, dirt on the windows isn’t noticed so much. But as soon as the daffodils start to shoot, Mothering Sunday looms and the clocks go forward, more sunlight and longer days make students, tutors and facilities staff start to look out of the windows and everyone notices that the windows aren’t as clean as they could be. A build-up of city dirt and rain mix together and leave the windows providing a less than perfect view.
At the Universities we have contracts with, our scheduling team will contact the University Facilities Manager to co-ordinate the available time scheme to cover all the windows in all the buildings on site – which believe me can run into 100s! Other Universities contact our office themselves to arrange for our team to clean their windows. Dates and timings are agreed and then it’s up to our scheduling team to co-ordinate our professionally trained window cleaners to ensure they are utilised to the most effective schedule. Our scheduling team will already have details of the size of job and the equipment needed or which is already on site.
All Clean Services can offer many different types of window cleaning including – cherry picker, abseiling, water fed pole cleaning with purified water and cradle window cleaning. All our staff are professionally trained in their specific area of expertise and will work in a team of 3 or 4 and as they work with each other every day, they all know their specific section and work harmoniously and efficiently together. The teams are always aware when working on a University contract that time is limited, so will always work quickly but safely, to complete the job.
