Knightsbridge conservatory cleaning

Conservatory cleaning in Knightsbridge today was more challenging than usual, because the conservatory that was cleaned by the Knightsbridge window cleaner was located on the 4th floor of a roof terrace. To make up for the difficulty of this cleaning work however were the spectacular views of many iconic London buildings that were noticed in the vicinity. These stunning city views went some way to compensating the window cleaner cleaning this conservatory. As conservatory cleaning is more physically demanding task than most other window cleaning tasks.

Spick & Span window cleaners arrived on site in Knightsbridge at 8:30am, on the first impression the property was beautiful, situated in a Brompton Square apartment in Knightsbridge, London, SW3. This very attractive Georgian period, 4th floor apartment, is just a short walk from Harrods, and located just off Brompton Road. After completing a full risk assessment, the Knightsbridge conservatory cleaner selected a host window cleaning of tools that would get the conservatory and windows looking like -new again. The tools that were best suited to cleaning this conservatory were: a telescopic pole, abrasive pads, cleaning detergent, brushes, and a portable trolley with a water pump, and of course water.
The conservatory was in desperate need of a Knightsbridge window cleaner, as according to some, the conservatory had not been cleaned for at least 15 years. This estimate is quite likely correct. There were green algae and sun baked dirt and dust which were very stubborn to remove. There were also dust deposits that had blown in from nearby basement excavation work.
The homeowner was very keen to get this conservatory cleaned thoroughly as according to her own admission’ it had been somewhat neglected over years.’ This ‘Glass veranda’ as it was described is used as a dining area, and place for guests who visit, to enjoy the Brompton road and Knightsbridge skyscape.
It required a lot of elbow grease on the part of the Knightsbridge window cleaner to scrub away this dirt, but the results were very satisfying to see afterwards.
After thoroughly washing the roof panes and rinsing with purified water all the side glass panels of the conservatory were washed.
In all this Knightsbridge window cleaner and conservatory call-out took around 2.5 hours to completed from start to finish.
Needless to say that the propertys owner was very satisfied with how clean the conservatory looked after, which also was very rewarding to hear.

Reaching windows whatever the height in Belgravia

Belgravia window cleaning was required today by a client there who was anxious to have the windows of her 6 storey property, just a short step from Belgrave Square, cleaned by a professional window cleaning company in the Belgravia, Knightsbridge area.

The client had been dissatisfied with the windows of the period property being in a murky and unclean state, but felt that there was no alternative to this situation, given that the windows of houses in Belgravia are so high up and difficult to reach and that most ‘sensible’ window cleaners would not venture to use ladders to reach windows located at such colossal heights, such as those contained in Belgravia properties.
Because of this train of thought, like so many in central London, she felt resigned to putting up with dirty windows on the top floors and not having the maximum amount of natural light and sunshine reach into the home but made do with the status quo, dirty windows, being concerned with cleaning just the lower windows and interior window cleaning.
Upon investigation it seems that many residents in Belgravia would like to have a regular and reliable window cleaning service with a company that they can trust, however it seems that few window cleaners work in Belgravia offer window cleaning services to owners of very large properties, sticking to just smaller homes and shops in central London. As a result of this avoidance may could be left thinking that  windows at a height above the 2nd level are un-cleanable, much less as a 6 storey townhouse, such as the one owned by the client in Belgravia who’s windows Spick & Span cleaned today.
Granted for traditional window cleaners within close proximity to Belgravia it would be impractical and inadvisable to take on such a task because of the risk to window cleaner and the potential damage that could be caused to the paintwork. Many residents of Belgravia are familiar with the man with a ladder type window cleaner but had not been aware of modern window cleaning practices that are completely adept and well suited to sympathetically restore sash window glass to their peak performance enabling them to get back to being translucent and making a neat and smart appearance.

Spick & Span used glass cleaning detergents that are ideal for removing grime, fat deposits and flour residue which are common to food establishments, such as a bakery. The windows were very grimy and some of display area was difficult to clean because of the bread shelves. These obstacles were surmounted by using telescopic poles as well as window cleaning ladders.

The Greenwich client had been dissatisfied with the windows of the period property being in a murky and unclean state, but her regular window cleaner had retired a few years ago and she had not been able to find a replacement.

This Georgian period listed building had been given beauty treatment by local London based property developers, however the Georgian glass windows were dusty and grimy due to the building work as were the roof-lanterns. This Georgian period property stood tall in it’s surroundings and was majestically stunning in it’s appearance, but it now needed expert window cleaners who work in Mayfair to come down to Mayfair to clean the windows. Split over 5 levels it had original Georgian multi-paned sash windows which had iron bars, there were also 5 glass roof lanterns, serving as light wells to allow natural light to flood into the interior.

The windows of this 6 floor property could not be cleaned sufficiently by regular Belgravia window cleaners but required professional window cleaning in the Belgravia area.
Because of the height of the windows they had not been cleaned for many years and this showed as the windows were coated with a very thick and heavy film of dirt and pollutants from the road traffic.

The window cleaning brushes that Spick and Span use to clean Sash windows are fine bristled meaning that they clean windows without damaging the glass.

The windows were first of all washed from the rear of the property. All the sash windows were scrubbed and then rinsed clean leaving them completely smear free and shiny. After the back windows were washed window cleaning commenced at the front of the property. Chesham place is home to a number of embassies pedestrian traffic and as a result the street is very busy, this made it essential that wet floor and safety signs be visible and all trailing hose be kept clear.
The windows looked so much better after the cleaning. The windows shimmered in the sunlight and looked so much brighter, giving the building a much better appearance. A neighbour on the street observed the window cleaning and took advantage of the Belgravia window cleaner and requested her windows to be cleaned and arranged for a follow up in a week’s time.

End Of Tenancy Window Cleaning East Dulwich

End of tenancy window cleaning in East Dulwich

Today Spick & Span window cleaners visited a property in East Dulwich as part of an end-of tenancy window cleaning service to clean windows there on behalf of a tenant who was in the process of moving home.
The client, who was busy cleaning the flat in preparation for a move away from this rented property in East Dulwich, needed all the windows to be left spotlessly clean to satisfy the requirements of her tenancy agreement.
Many Landlords stipulate that in order for a tenant to receive back their full deposit the property must be left spotlessly clean by the tenant or as the agreement often defines ‘in the state that the property was at the time it was moved in to’.
Moving home can be a stressful affair at the best of times, add to this the uncertainty of receiving back a large deposit, which often is needed as a down payment for the new rental property, and it becomes clear why employing a domestic cleaner or window cleaner, is the sensible option for most London tenants who have come to the end of their tenancy .

Not only will a good residential window cleaner help lighten the load of client who has come to end of his/ her tenancy, but often times, professional window cleaners can be a good source of knowledge to tap into during this process .
