We were contacted by Mantiowoc Crane Group with regard to the facade cleaning of their UK Depot, near Buckingham.
The client enquired about the cleaning of all facades of the building measuring 80 mtrs deep, 30 meters wide and 12 meters high – totalling 2640 Square Meters of building facade to be cleaned.
We offer all commercial clients a free initial site survey, sample clean and quotation – this was provided for Mantiwoc Cranes UK.
The site survey found the building facades to be dirtied by organic growth, general dirt, oil & grease along with several areas of rust on the cladding.
As always a complete RAMS was created specifically for the site including risks such as moving vehicles, cranes and pedestrians along with potential hazards to our own team while working on site.
Full PPE is always worn by the Cleaned With Care building cleaning teams at all times while on site for our clients and all of our work is carried out in accordance to HSE regulations on working at height.
RAMS are always submitted to our clients for approval before works commence. Our RAMS were approved in the first instance by Mantiwoc Cranes UK who have strict health and safety policies and procedures on site.
Access to the higher levels of the building was via our 17.75 Meter tracked access platform which is perfect for navigating through narrow usually found around industrial factories and warehouses. The machine narrows to just 780mm, yet can safely allow our crew to reach heights of 17.75 meters.
This building is cladded with a aluminium cladding requiring a light alkaline chemical clean combined with a warm water wash down to remove dirt and grime from the facade of the building.
Using water fed poles combined with hot water we are able to clean metal cladding up to 60ft high (provided there is enough space around the building)
Our cherry picker is used to get us up close to the building as required for finishing touches and anything that needs closer attention such as rust staining (normally from dripping gutters that have rusted the bolts)
