What is High-Level Cleaning?
High-level cleaning is pretty much as the name suggests, cleaning at high levels. At its simplest, it is cleaning that requires either equipment or individuals at a height to enable the cleaning of surfaces, whether internal or external.
Of course, many will only consider the external cleaning at height when they see individuals abseiling to clean windows or on access platforms to clean cladding. However, there are of course internal walls and ceilings in some types of premises that are high too and still need cleaning.
Importantly, with the potential dangers of cleaning at heights, it is vital that appropriate Health & Safety procedures, insurance and training are provided. More on this later.
High-Level Cleaning Procedures
Working at height requires that commercial cleaners follow strict procedures to ensure the safety of staff, customers and the general public. The dangers of working at heights are obvious but must not be underestimated. All staff at TMT that work at heights are highly trained and accredited professionals where appropriate.

- Distribution centres
