Rope Access Cleaning
Rope Access Cleaning Services is a method of cleaning at height that has been developed over a 25 year period. It is also used in construction and is known as a safer, less intrusive method of high-level work. Scaffolding requires time and is costly to install and takes up a larger working space and area. Ladders involve more risk, and extension poles can’t always reach all the necessary places to give the same level of cleaning required. Allowing access to our team with our high-level cleaning solutions, to even the most difficult of areas, means that a job won’t be left half done, therefore making it more obvious when dirt, grime or carbon build up is left undisturbed and untouched.
Apex Access Group also use MEWP Access which involves using cherry pickers or Mobile Elevated Working Platforms. This is a highly skilled method that requires a special qualification from our team to operate the appropriate machinery.
