In a gutter rut?


A new look at working at height and the latest technology for gutter maintenance from Dream Team Cleaning Solutions Ltd.


When someone mentions Working at Height, almost instantly we conjure up images of window cleaning, but are we being a little narrow minded? The answer is yes! There is more dirt, than initially meets the eye, way up there, and, from windows to walls, from ceilings to hard-to-reach nooks, we need to open our eyes a little wider.


One area, that takes working at height to the top, is roof managements and gutter maintenance. A task normally associated with a ladder and a few refuse sacks has certainly reached new heights in recent times.


Legislation associated with Working at Height (2005) states that ladders should be used, only when there is not a viable alternative. Currently, many high-rise buildings have been forced to use platforms, scaffolding or cherry pickers at great expense. The great news is that Dream Team Cleaning Solutions has a unique system that means that health and safety isn’t compromised.


The system, which uses vacuum technology, has been assessed and approved by the HSE and is even used in their Working at Heights Safely DVD. This safe and viable alternative, for buildings up to 16m (four storeys), can save your business, housing association, or local authority, thousands of pounds, while delivering a top quality service and minimal disruption to the site.


As you can tell, Dream Team Cleaning Solutions Ltd take health and safety measures very seriously, and quite rightly so. They will carry out a risk assessment on all sites and provide a method statement together with a copy of their liability insurance, currently at £5 million. They are also a member of the Institute of Occupational Safety & Health, CHAS and the Federation of Window Cleaners, ticking all of those vital boxes.


When it comes to gutting gutters, prior preparation is not usually required and high level vacuum tools with 3000 watts of power

give outstanding performance to break up and remove impacted soil, saplings and other debris, which, in turn, is collected in a tank by the operator who remains at ground level.


To ensure the down pipe is clear of waste, a vertical hose is inserted; using high pressure water to break up any impacted debris. The work is then checked with the aid of a high level camera – pictures provided, if required. Any roof defects as we are cleaning your gutters, staff will ensure that the building manager is notified. The waste is removed and recycled organically, leaving your site, and your conscience, clean.


So next time you consider working at height, don’t overlook all of the arenas.
