This site was part of some new build student accommodation projects that are being built in Edinburgh. We were asked by a large contractor to clean this site and another site (See post below). This site only required a light rinse-down of all brickwork, but alongside those works, we were asked to carry out a deep clean to all window frames to remove any mortar, mastic & stickers. We removed any staining on the frames by hand, then we used our Pure Water Fed Pole window cleaning system to safely and effectively clean all the glass from the ground. Leaving the windows gleaming!
We were contacted by a large national contractor to carry out some brick cleaning on a large new build project in Edinburgh. The contractor had two sites, one in a finished state, that just needed to be rinsed down (see post above) and this one, which needed a full chemical brick clean to remove any mortar spots, staining and general building dust.We were able to carry out the works and liaise with other trades to complete the job ahead of schedule, much to the contractors pleasure.
The owner of this industrial unit wanted it cleaned up. It hadn’t been touched since it was built, and the area and nearby trees had caused it to turn a nasty shade of grey, with large areas covered in algae. We were able to clean this entirely from the ground using our specialist equipment, which saved the owner the cost of any access equipment. He also wanted the gutters cleaned out, which were full of solid debris, plants, soil and general muck.
The landlord of this restaurant gave us a call asking if we could remove some paint from the tarmac pathway around the front/side of the building. The previous tenants had painted the building, and not done a very good job. We assured him that we could remove all the paint splatters and have the pathways nice and clean for the new restaurant opening. The paint was removed using our hot water system, then the whole area was cleaned.
A new manager had taken over the large IKEA store in Braehead, and wanted the front of the store nice and fresh. We were asked to remove all the gum, and give the tarmac area all the way along the front of the store a thorough clean. There was 13 years worth of chewing gum here, so you can imagine the task at hand! We worked from early evening, through the night, so as not to disrupt the customers of this very busy store. We used a dry steam machine, as the tarmac was quite soft, and no chemicals could be used. After the gum was removed, we gave the whole area a washdown to bring the tarmac back to how it should look, and give all the IKEA customers a better shopping experience.
This office building was changing occupants, and the landlord wanted the whole exterior given a good cleaning. We were asked to clean all the aluminium canopies, all the guttering and fascias and all the cladding. Remove all the black staining caused by the aluminium canopies, any moss that had grown on the stonework, and to give the bricks a thorough washdown. After we had finished cleaning the hard surfaces, we cleaned all the windows with our pure water system.
Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh asked us to give their main building and sports centre a good clean. Especially to remove the green algae staining that had covered a lot of the white render. As you can see from some of the pictures, there was a lot of area to cover and some of the access was difficult, but with the use of two booms and various length lances we were able to reach all of the buildings exterior and bring the white render back to new.
We were approached by another local business to see if we could give two of their car sales yards a spruce up. Both large areas of tarmac, and we got them both looking like new again. A lot of the surface was covered in moss from where the cars had been sitting, so we gave the whole area a thorough pressure clean, and treated problem areas with a fungicidal wash to try and slow down the regrowth of any vegetation. The owner was thrilled with the result, and all his cars look much better sitting on a nice, clean yard.
We were more than happy to take on the final exterior clean of this newly built Sainsbury’s before it was handed over, and opened to the public. We were asked to clean all the brickwork, removing the dust and any mortar smearing and then we had to clean all the monoblock car park and pathway areas. We also gave the tarmac footpaths a good wash, leaving it sparkling, ready for all its new customers.
We were asked by another cleaning company if we could undertake the pressure washing side of the final clean at the new institute being built at Stornoway, on the isle of Lewis. With over 5000 m2 of tarmac and monoblocked areas it was a huge undertaking but we got it all finished a few days before it was to be handed over to the client. The work involved spot cleaning of any stains (removal of rust marks, spillages and general staining) a full wash down of all paved and tarmaced areas and clean up of any mess left by the building works.
