As building design reaches new heights, the techniques for keeping them clean so too must adapt. Most city centre buildings are now being built taller than ever before and in new and interesting designs.
Most of these designs utilise glass as the main material for the façade due to its affordable cost, but also the fact that it gives an incredible aesthetic to any building. Here at Parkside Cleaning Services, we have been providing our commercial window cleaning service to a number of clients for many years now, and to stay ahead of the curve we like to keep up to date with new window cleaning technologies.
As buildings become more elaborate, they also become much more difficult to keep clean. After all, a huge glass building won’t look impressive for very long if it isn’t kept clean. As buildings get taller, safety is also a major concern: the top floor of a tall building provides beautiful views of the city from the inside, but for those hanging on the outside of the building, the wind can be a dangerous element to a cleaners working day.
New cleaning technology is advancing alongside building design. Let’s take a look at what the future may hold in store for cleaning equipment?
In an attempt to keep cleaners as safe as possible, some robotic cleaning machines are being used across the world to clean some of the larger buildings. These machines are operated by a human from a safe vantage point and helps boost the efficiency and productivity of the cleaning process, especially on larger buildings that can take months to clean.
Drone design is still in its infancy but its potential for the future is being widely developed. We may see a future where drones are used instead of cranes to build structures, so it makes sense that we may see drones used to clean those buildings too. Drones are already used in a number of industries such as farming and agriculture for soil and field analysis and planting and there are plenty of other industries looking to implement drones into their work force.
Waterless Window Cleaning
All businesses are looking at creating a more environmentally friendly way to operate, including the cleaning industry. Self-cleaning glass is already used in some parts of the world and is being touted as the future building material for skyscrapers. Cleaning methods are constantly being revised in order to save water whilst still providing an efficient clean.
The future may throw up some more technologies for us to consider, but so far the future is looking cleaner than ever before for commercial window cleaners in Manchester and the rest of the world.
