Why Window Cleaning Important in Dubai

Keeping a commercial or residential building clean and presentable is just one bit of essential maintenance work in Dubai. That every building manager or contractor should undertake. Since windows often act as a building’s exterior face – as well as a fundamental part of its aesthetic in many modern architectural designs – their upkeep is crucial to how the building is perceived from both inside and out. Indeed, as rope access specialists, we think that the residents of a building should be able to enjoy their beautiful views free of scuffs and marks.


However, as anybody who has taken a stroll through Dubai will have noticed, not all windows look like a walk in the park to clean. Some are too high up on a building to be reached via ladder or cherry picker, and some are too awkward and difficult to reach via suspension platforms or access cradles. In these cases, the most appropriate means of access is that which serves the trickiest of spots on the tallest of buildings without any problems… you guessed it, rope access! If you have questions about this service, we’re going to answer them in this post.

How Rope Access Window Cleaning Works?

Rope access window cleaning is a fairly simple procedure that involves a small amount of setting up, a minimal amount of equipment, but a very high standard of safety. All work is carried out by trained professionals who are not only great with heights (rope access is no career for the acrophobic), but also experienced in their trade. As such, they can get the job done quickly and effectively without causing disruption or risking harm to anyone.

Technicians securely anchor to the roof of a building before proceeding down its side (bucket in tow) and cleaning each window they pass by. Depending on the job, technicians rarely clean all of a building’s windows on their own – this would probably take far too long – so they often work in teams that clean entire floors at the same time, descending together in a neat row.

On top of a very compact inventory of rope access gear, window cleaning at height involves exactly the tools you’d expect: a trusty window wiper paired with some good old soap and water. Since technicians are required to clean for extended periods while dangling from a system of ropes, they must use work seats to prevent any straining or chafing that could be caused by the harness.
