Contract Services

HyKleen offer contract window cleaning services to landlords, caretakers, building managers, facility management agencies, councils and housing associations. With an enviable Health & Safety record, we offer a professional window cleaning service for buildings of any size using our high-reach pole system, avoiding many of the risks inherent in other window cleaning methods.

How We Work

We will work closely with the building manager to produce a Risk Assessment and Method Statements, and establish a working schedule that is appropriate for residents as well as for management and ourselves.

When we visit your premises we carry our own supply of purified heated water. Extendable poles allow us to reach every floor of your building without requiring the use of ladders or cages. Each pole has a soft brush attached to the end and the purified water is pumped up the pole and through the bristles of the brush. The soft bristles gently but effectively loosen any dirt from your windows, which is then literally absorbed by the purified water.

Finally, we thoroughly rinse your windows so that all dirt is washed away and all that is left on your window is pure water. This is then allowed to evaporate away leaving your windows perfectly clear.

Your Questions Answered

What is your Health and Safety/Insurance policy?
Before commencing any work on your premises we will conduct a full Risk Assessment and produce Method Statements with consideration to the working conditions, types of access, work at height requirements, necessary equipment, and any other appropriate considerations. You will be supplied with all relevant documents. We are fully insured to protect you and your premises as well as ourselves.
Why don't you use detergent?
Traditional window-cleaning methods require some agent to lift the dirt away from your windows. That is the purpose of the detergent. Unfortunately, the traditional method of simply blading the glass without rinsing means that a thin residue of detergent is then left on your windows, this becomes sticky and in time actually attracts more dirt. The purified water used in our system literally absorbs dirt, removing the necessity for any extra cleaning agent. It also leaves your windows free of any residue meaning that they will stay cleaner for longer.
If you allow the windows to dry by themselves, won't that leave watermarks?
So called "watermarks" are actually created, not by the water itself, but by the impurities contained within water. Water has the well-known chemical make-up H2O ... in other words: water is made up only of gases - hydrogen and oxygen. When it evaporates the water itself evaporates away completely, but it leaves behind any impurities that it contained causing "watermarks". That's why we use 100% pure water and we ensure that your windows are thoroughly rinsed before we leave. When our water evaporates from your windows it leaves nothing behind but a sparkle!
Will I notice the difference the first time you visit?
Not necessarily. Cleaning your windows using the traditional method will have left a layer of residue over the glass to which dirt clings. Our method of cleaning breaks down this layer and actually draws dirt to the surface that may have been missed for months or even years. It may take up to three cleans to fully remove this layer of dirt and leave your windows perfectly clear.
How do you purify the water?
The water is first softened to minimise wear and tear on the very fine filters that are used through the rest of the process. The water is then passed through a series of filters each designed to refine the water more than the previous one. The final stages of filtration utilise a method known as "reverse osmosis" which removes all organic, bacterial or particulate impurities from the water. By the end of this process the level of impurities in the water has dropped to below 30 parts PER MILLION!

After filtration, our water goes through a process known as "de-ionisation". As the water passes through a specially manufactured ion exchange resin, all magnesium, calcium and sodium ions are removed from the water, like filtering the water at an atomic level. After this stage the impurities in the water have dropped to below 1 part per million. Only in certain scientific research facilities will you find water that is much purer than this.
