The advantages of internal high-level cleaning
High-level cleaning eliminates any dirt, debris or dust that may be at heights. If you own or work in a large building such as a warehouse or commercial property it can be hard to maintain the cleanliness of those hard to reach places with many businesses focusing solely on ground level cleaning but those out-of-sight-out-of-mind areas need maintaining too.
No matter what industry you work in, whether it be manufacturing, distribution, retail or commercial, an internal high-level cleaning service can help you. Ensuring your facility is clean and well presented is a vital part of building a thriving business. Not doing so not only creates a bad first impression for clients but can also be detrimental to the long term health of your employees.
What is involved?
High-level cleaning involves working at potentially dangerous heights, calling for specialised equipment and a professionally trained team. At Safegroup our team work around the clock and are able to carry out high-level cleaning at whatever time best suits you, minimising the disruption to your business.
We have access to a range of equipment including:
- Cherry Picker – An aerial crane with an adjustable platform that is able to raise and lower, multi-purpose and flexible
- Scissor Lift – An aerial platform like a cherry picker, although is only able to rise vertically
- Scaffold Towers – freestanding fixed point temp platforms. Easily supports both technicians and their equipment.
We also work closely with supply chain partners to provide specialist services, including scaffolding and rope access teams, if they are needed.
Why do I need high-level internal cleaning?
High-level cleaning eliminates the presence of dust particles which can be harmful to the human body. Scientific evidence suggested that airborne viral droplets are able to attach themselves to dust particles, allowing viruses to travel by creating a vehicle through which they can spread. There is even evidence to back the idea that COVID-19 can be spread through dust particles.
Once in the air dust creates an unhealthy working environment and can reduce a facilities productivity and safety. Airborne dust in the workplace can cause or worsen respiratory issues, these health issues can range from pneumonia to more severe health issues. Silica dust poses the biggest health risk, but even something as simple as wood dust can cause significant damage to the lungs and airways.
Not only is dust detrimental to the health of your employees, but it can also be a serious fire hazard. Most types of dust are in fact flammable and can ignite and spread quickly so it is key that dust is eliminated on a regular basis.
The health and safety implications and potential damages associated with working from a height mean that high-level cleaning practices should always and only ever be undertaken by a trained professional with the correct equipment. At SafeGroup we are committed to safety and comply with all health and safety protocols, including the use of appropriate signage when cleaning is in place to warn those in the area of potential hazards.
High level means high risk, that’s why our team of dedicated professionals are fully trained in health and safety, attempts to cut corners by using untrained staff are both irresponsible and unproductive and put’s everyone at serious risk.
