What to expect from a high-level cleaning service

SafeGroup’s high-level access cleaning service helps maintain the highest standards of building maintenance, site safety and visible cleanliness.

Cleaning at height – even just metres from the ground – presents safety challenges that require specific expertise and qualifications that SafeGroup’s trained and experienced teams always deliver.

Our high-level access cleaning personnel hold IPAF and PASMA qualifications for using access platforms and work towers, supported by rigorous in-house training and supervision. This ensures our cleaning is carried out effectively and in full compliance with customs procedures and health and safety legislation.

We will carry out a free site survey. A full risk assessment and method statement (RAMS) is prepared. A survey report is provided with every job, including before and after photographs to show the high standard of work carried out. This is accompanied by a cleaning certificate for customer due diligence records.

SafeGroup in Action

Social housing cleaning

SafeGroup manages major, complex projects to carry out high level cleaning for social housing providers.

For example, we have has completed a programme of gutter and facsia cleaning on multiple 10-storey buildings across a large housing estate in Westminster, London.

This involved partnership working with estate managers to engage with tenants, and road closures to overcome access challenges while using a large truck-mount boom lift to carry out the work.

High level cleaning process

Our high level cleaning teams follow a clear process to ensure our work is set up efficiently and safely and carried out to a high standard with least disruption to our clients.


1 Survey
A SafeGroup manager carries out a site survey and prepares a work plan (RAMS) for the cleaning to be done safely, with least client disruption.
2 Arrival
Our IPAF and PASMA-qualified team arrives on site on time in branded uniforms with appropriate PPE and carries out a point of works risk assessment.
3 Site set-up
We create a safe work area with barriers and signage, and by diverting access routes, if necessary, all the time working flexibly with client teams.
4 Clean low and high levels
We implement the agreed high level cleaning plan. This may include a programme of disinfection, often particularly important in the food industry.
5 Final inspection
Our teams take pictures of cleaning and liaise closely with the client site management team to ensue all required work is completed to a high standard.
6 Job completion
All equipment, including access platforms, is safely removed from site. A detailed report, including before and after images, is sent to the client.

High level cleaning – vacuumation technology

SafeGroup uses advanced vacuumation poles to carry out high level cleaning to maximise safety and reduce client disruption and costs.

The technology allows high level cleaning to be carried out without high level working procedures associated with using access platforms or work towers, reducing disruption for clients and speeding up service delivery.

The carbon fibre vacuumation poles can be used to remove dust from walls and roof spaces to meet clean manufacturning standards.

Vacuum poles are also used to clear external gutters.
