Wilston Industrial Chic: Tricky Window Cleaning Access Made Easy

Angular lines, aluminium sheets, metal support beams, external semi-frameless glass balustrades…are you thinking what I’m thinking??? If you said ‘industrial chic’ we’re on the same page!

Moving on…what makes ‘industrial chic’ complete? Keeping the balustrade glass clean and clear. This is a must! Especially is this important when it’s a prominent feature of your street frontage.

With land prices in the city causing many a jaw to drop it’s not uncommon for modern homes to share the fire wall. This can make cleaning the outside of your high windows risky or near impossible without encroaching on your neighbour’s space. This proved no obstacle for our Get It Clean team (and we didn’t need to ask your neighbour for permission to set up a ladder)! Well equipped with extendable, water-fed poles and manoeuvrable squeegee heads we made light work of this tricky access challenge.

Now just for a moment, try to imagine yourself cleaning these glass balustrades on BOTH sides at a height! Perhaps you don’t have to imagine. Is this the reason you are searching for a professional window cleaner with experience in handling glass balustrades or tricky access windows? Search no further!

Commercial Window Cleaning @ Spring Hill – Never a Stretch!

Turning up to a 6 storey building might be a challenge for an acrophobic, but it’s certainly not a challenge for the commercial window cleaning Get It Clean Team!

Case in point is this building we recently window cleaned at Spring Hill.  One might begin to wonder what happens to the hard to reach glass…does it get overlooked, does it need abseiling or how does one go about cleaning it??

The answer is quite simple.  At Get It Clean we use water-fed extendable poles that allow us to reach the tightest of nooks and crannies up to 8 storeys high!  It is so effective that it’s as if we were on the ground cleaning it!

But what about if we had to go higher than our poles allow? That is something we deal with regularly and we use qualified abseiling technicians to ensure that there is no glass too high to clean.

This is why a number of hospitals, schools, body corporates and commercial building owners trust Get It Clean with their window cleaning.

Please read some of the reviews that we have received and give us a call or send us an email to discuss your commercial cleaning conundrum and how we can help.

What Am I? Teneriffe Commercial Cleaning Conundrum

You may be wondering if we posted this photo the right way up and if so what exactly is it…!!

Well, for our Get it Clean team, it was what they were looking at when they arrived on the job…a narrow light shaft in a commercial multi-storey building.   Not an ideal worksite for a claustrophobic! 

Thankfully given our state-of-the art equipment what looks like a challenge was in fact easily achievable.  Using light-weight telescopic poles the team were able to reach the glass panes in this high narrow space with ease.

This is just one of many commercial building complexes that we look after.  Body corporates and property managers in and around Brisbane are entrusting us with their window cleaning, building wash downs and high pressure cleaning of common areas.  The results speak for themselves and the reviews on our website do too…be sure to check them out! 

If you want to know what we can do to help with the external cleaning of your building, give us a call and we will happily meet you on site to discuss your needs and how we can help.

Powering Up The Gold Coast With A Solar Panel Clean

What an interesting day in the ‘office’ for our Get It Clean team! Taking in the views was not on their minds as they powered through cleaning 320 solar panels on top of a College building on the Gold Coast.

Why clean solar panels you may wonder? Well just like everything else, solar panels are not immune to getting dusty, building up grime and even bird droppings over time. But unlike most cleaning jobs, this will impact on your hip pocket, as dirty solar panels will not work as efficiently!  In fact cleaning solar panels can increase their efficiency by up to 25-30%.

There are a number of factors that determine how often you should get your solar panels cleaned – your location, the tilt angle of your panels and the amount of wind-blown dust. Also, if you notice your electricity bill is not as low as you expected it to be, that may be a sign that it is time for a clean.

As you can see from this job, the Get It Clean team are highly trained and experienced in restoring your solar panels to their former glory.  You don’t have to worry about safety (yours or theirs!) as the team are well equipped to comply with all health and safety regulations.

So before the electricity bill hits the roof this coming winter, why not get the team to get on the roof instead and clean your solar panels for you.  Contact us for a quote before your next electricity bill arrives!

Non-Intrusive Window Cleaning for Small Commercial Buildings at Eight Mile Plains

What’s the first thing you notice about our guy cleaning the windows of this small commercial building at Eight Mile Plains?

If you work, or have ever worked, in a ‘room with a view’ indulge with me for a moment…

Do you remember the occasion when you were tippy tappin away on your computer only to be startled by someone else’s reflection appearing on your screen? You swivel to see a window cleaner straddling the outside ledge squeegeeing his way across your view, bucket in hand, weaving in and out of fluorescent coloured abseiling ropes. Whilst you quietly ponder (or, like me, you may have said this out loud)  “…are my windows two way?” the hooked up, tightly harnessed window cleaner smiles and winks back at you ;-)! Awkward right?  Even more so if he’s still there 10min later :-o!

Here’s a pithy one-liner our Get It Clean window whiz team strive to deliver on: “We don’t loiter at our business whilst cleaning yours!” And whilst our cleaning crew don’t skimp on safety equipment we want the end result not our equipment to be ‘fluorescently’ obvious to you, your employees and customers!

Now…what does that ‘look’ like in action…how do we do a fancy job without looking too fancy ourselves? Well, do you see any ladders, buckets, bungee equipment, fluorescent abseiling ropes, temporary trestles etc. in this picture? NO – and that’s because we are not stuck in the 1990’s! Less definitely is more when you want to deliver a professional window cleaning service to professional commercial businesses. So we pride ourselves on keeping ‘to the minute’ current with best practice window cleaning techniques, products and specialised equipment.

Did you spot the water fed, light weight extension pole our cleaner is using here? That’s right, he’s using a water fed pole, which means there’s a hose attached. But you can hardly see it right? That’s the way we like it. His presence is not imposing or his methods disruptive. The top of the range cleaning products we use enable our cleaners to deliver a streak free, smudge free clean the first time, which means it’s the sparkle in your windows that will capture your clients eye not the yoyo acrobatics of your window cleaner.

Give us a call if you want our professional Get It Clean team working with you to uphold the professional reputation of your commercial business whilst making your shop front shine!

Window Cleaning Arch Windows Not A Problem at Shorncliffe

Talk about a school boasting ‘old-school’ charm coupled with modern practicality! When we arrived on sight at this beautiful school we were thrilled to see a juxtaposition of old and new. The durability of aluminium frames partnered with classic wooden veneer ‘arch’ or ‘radius’ windows. So called because, as you can see, the bottom of the window is a rectangle shape while the top is an arch.

If you are a proud owner of arch windows you know there is more to them than their visual appeal. They can be installed operable or fixed and can be detailed, as these ones are, with grids; bars that divide the windows into smaller panes. These are the positive things you need to recall when you realise how TRICKY they are to clean! Yes…they are gorgeous to look at but can be a little high maintenance (as most things gorgeous are ;-)).

Because we know ‘windows’ well, this eye candy proved no obstacle for our expert window cleaning professionals. Neither did cleaning two stories of arch windows (using extension poles, specialised squeegee’s and expert technique) easily intimidate our Get It Clean crew. With an eye for detail, the van loaded up with the right equipment for this tricky, finicky work, we restored the sparkle that gorgeous windows justly deserve.

How did we do it? Of course working with top quality equipment and products is a big part of it, but so is our window cleaning technique – ‘fanning’. Moving the squeegee back and forth over the glass with suitable pressure and continuous motion to leave the glass streak free and drip free. This is something you can try at home! Then next time you call us to restore the glamour to your arch widows get the professionals to show you what ‘fanning’ should really look like!

High Window Glass Washed Easily at a Brisbane Hospital

What’s the first thing that comes to mind on viewing this window washing moment in time? Does the expression “go go gadget…extension poles” ring a bell? Or…what about “there ain’t no window high enough, there ain’t no grime tough enough to keep us from getting to it”…suffice to say this was definitely one of Steve’s ‘four story glory’ moments! And no doubt, as Steve was washing windows at this Brisbane hospital building, he was humming a similar tune.

The invention of light weight, water fed extension poles has really revolutionized the window washing world. We can now efficiently and safely clean high windows, ladder free, from the ground up. This is fabulously fuss free! What was, once upon a time, a “how many ladders can we ethically fix to a van?” exercise is now a fete of finesse. This is sure to keep commercial window cleaners all around the world humming whilst they wash 😉

If you look at the photo closely you’ll notice the extension poles are designed ingeniously without any obvious water pipes hanging off them. Why is that? In two words, practicality and functionality. Our equipment is purpose made to allow a water fed hose to be snuggly threaded through the middle of the pole. Such innovation has a two faceted purpose.

1. It minimises trip hazards. This leaves the Work Place Health and Safety Officer humming.

2. It allows a continuous stream of water to be pumped through the hose, flooding the window as it’s washed clean. This results in a scratch, smudge, dust free clean every time. Which means your window’s sparkle for longer in between washes.

If it’s time for your business’ high window’s to be washed clean and you’re after a fabulously fuss free experience that will leave you humming, give our Get It Clean team a call. We are happy to help!

Window Cleaning A Classroom With A View!

It’s hard not to be distracted by the magnificent view this prestigious private school building has which overlooks an Olympic sized pool and Brisbane city. What is really refreshing is that not only is there stunning views, a stunningly designed building but also we are pleasantly stunned by the thought that has gone into its ongoing maintenance.

You will notice that there are purpose built window cleaning ledges, complete with safety anchors to allow window cleaning to be safely carried out. Needless to say this makes our job much easier.

Get It Clean takes safety very seriously and we have an extensive training program to ensure that our professional cleaners do the very best job in the very safest way.

We often find ourselves on a ledge somewhere overlooking great scenery in beautiful Brisbane and while that is just one of the perks of our job we LOVE the fact that our work means that our client can also enjoy beautiful Brisbane at its crystal clear best long after we are gone!

Please call us on 3268 4246 to see what we can do for your view. We’d be happy to help.
