Become A Pro At Window Cleaning

Now, there is a safe and inexpensive way to clean windows, frames and exteriors of buildings. The Sky Pro® Window Cleaning System is a technological breakthrough in automated window and building washing equipment, and offers a smaller, more affordable window and building washing solution for window cleaning services and commercial building owners.

Sky Pro introduces the newest model to their product line, the Sky Pro Mini Sprayer. The Mini Sprayer is ideal for cleaning windows and building exteriors on small to mid- height buildings, using a pressure washer based system similar to touch-free carwash technology. A two-person operation can safely, quickly and profi tably clean windows and building exteriors much safer and easier than manual window cleaning equipment.

Rentokil Launch New Damp Rod System

Rentokil Property Care has launched an innovative new solution for treating rising damp, which removes the need to inject a liquid carrier to form a chemical damp proof course. The Rentokil Damp Rod system is based on a high-strength, liquid free, damp proofi ng formulation, which is inserted directly into holes in property walls, without the need for an injection pump.

Rising damp in buildings occurs when water from the ground rises up through bricks and mortar via capillary action. If left untreated, this can cause damage to internal

This automated system uses high- pressure water to scrub the surface from a distance of up to 3ft. It is ideal for cleaning buildings with irregular window offsets, curves, recesses, overhangs, protrusions, inset glass, asymmetrical frames or other architectural features that make traditional cleaning methods diffi cult, if not impossible.

The Sky Pro Mini Sprayer weighs only 83lbs and is made of lightweight aluminium, so it will not rust or corrode. It is easy to transport and fi ts easily into the back of a pickup truck, plus the unit is easy to set up and can be ready to work in minutes. Architects, building owners, window washing companies, building management or maintenance companies, should seriously consider investing in one of the many Sky Pro System models, as most models will pay for themselves in less than a year. Sky Pro eliminates the danger associated

fi nishes such as plaster and paintwork, as well as potentially leading to the decay of timbers.

Rentokil’s new Damp Rod system offers a solution to rising damp, which is both less messy and less disruptive than traditional methods. The rods eliminate the need to inject large amounts of fl uid into an already wet wall, which means faster drying times, allowing re-plastering and re-decoration to be undertaken more quickly. In addition, the risk of fl uid spillages, which can damage carpets, wooden fl oors and patios, has been eliminated. For added peace-of-mind for property owners, Rentokil’s Damp Rod treatment comes with a 30-year guarantee,

with manual window washing and reduces labour and insurance costs.

“Sky Pro is one of the most ingenious pieces of equipment to be made available to building owners, managers, and cleaning companies. It has reduced our cost of window cleaning services by approximately $50,000 per year. We have also been able to reduce our liability exposure by not having bodies over the side of the building”, said Robert Thomson, Manager of Cassidy Turley Commercial Real Estate Services, and satisfi ed customer of SkyPro.

which can be passed on to the new owners, if and when a property changes hands.

Berwyn Evans, UK Product Manager of Rentokil Property Care, commented: “Rentokil is renowned for innovation across its service- offering, and this treatment is no exception. Delivering a quicker turnaround of properties, less mess and a 30-year guarantee, the Rentokil Damp Rod system offers an alternative for the thousands of homeowners affected by rising damp every year. Improved turnaround times also mean that this method of damp proofi ng is likely to appeal to property developers as well.” REGULAR | 65
