Window Cleaning in Cadogan Square, SW1

Window Cleaning SW1 Cadogan SquareToday Spick & Span Window Cleaners did some work on behalf of a PA who had been tasked with the job of  organising the window  cleaning of a 3 bedroom duplex property in Cadogan Square, London SW1.

Cadogan Square is in Knightsbridge and gets its name from the Earl of Cadogan. It is one of the most sought after areas to own a property. It is also one of the most expensive residential part of London.

This property which has just recently been acquired by the boss of the PA that booked us, is to be rented to tenants by the end of the week, hence the urgency of the booking.

This beautiful red-brick period property was like a rabbit warren within, containing numerous passages leading in to rooms that contained windows of various shapes and sizes.

The windows in the main living area were tall, perhaps 5 metres in height. On the lower floor, which essentially was a basement, there were three bedrooms. The master bedroom windows were difficult to access from inside as there were boxes that blocked the windows, but these were careful moved by the team before the cleaning commenced.

According to the PA , the personal cleaner had attempted to wash some of the internal windows herself but because it was too tricky had left smears and streaks, much to the chagrin of the tenant for whom this cleaning work had been undertaken.

All three bedrooms had outside courtyards, which meant that they could be cleaned from outside fairly easily, however it was necessary that specialised window cleaning equipment be used to reach the tall windows internally and to clean effectively the first floor windows externally.

Spick & Span window cleaners have experience in cleaning windows in exclusive neighbourhoods in London and have the tools to clean windows that many domestic cleaners may struggle to clean effectively.

Needless to say this PA, who’s used our services previously, was also on this occasion not left disappointed. In fact she is keen for us to  come to  clean the windows at  another property in the area that she manages on behalf of her boss.

One Hyde Park Window Cleaning

Window cleaning One Hyde ParkToday Spick & Span window cleaners went to clean the windows at a location that has within it one of the most expensive flats in the country, this was  located in: One Hyde Park, a major residential development located in London Knightsbridge, SW1.

This super structure of a building located next to Hyde Park, is one many exclusive locations that we often find ourselves cleaning in.

Spick & Span window cleaners performed this at the request property managers working on behalf of this client. We carried out all the work with the utmost  discretion and in compliance with all protocol placed upon us by the One Hyde Park security.

This fifth floor at One Hyde Park, consistent with the rest of the residential building, is completely bounded in glass, much of which is maintained by the  in-house window cleaners, however it can become necessary to find windows who are able to clean the balconies of One Hyde Park, as these areas can be difficult to reach from window cleaning cradles.

We cleaned the windows of the balcony of the apartment in One Hyde Park both inside and outside. These large glass doors were remote controlled and allowed us access outside. From outside the property we were able to get close enough the window to scrub and aggravate the build up of dirt on the glass, which had been left from the London air.

It was clear that attempts had been made to clean the floor-to -ceiling glass of the doors before. These attempts however had been unsuccessful and had in fact made the windows look worse. They were thick with grease or detergent which had left stains. They also were very smeary.

We were able to rectify the work that had been done previously by using the correct solutions. We used telescopic poles, a applicator pad, squeegee, and cloths to remove stubborn marks.

The windows afterwards, looked spotless.
