Revolution at height

In this Case Study, a Swedish service company improve their façade cleaning offering thanks to hyCLEANER.

Clean Maker Sverige AB is a Swedish service company based in Stockholm, Sweden. They work nationwide and have more than 22 years of experience offering unique cleaning services in different business areas.

They specialise in cleaning huge building complexes and glass façades, and offer property owners and facility management companies innovative and chemical-free cleaning services.

Clean Maker is a forward-thinking company, trying to stand out from their competition. In order to grow the segment of efficient façade cleaning further, the company decided to invest in semi-automatic cleaning system, hyCLEANER red.

The hyCLEANER technology enables fast, safe and efficient cleaning thanks to its high performance and optimal cleaning results. Operation and handling are pretty simple: once the brush system is attached to the basket of an access platform, cleaning can begin. The operator of the access platform moves the basket to the top of the building; while the basket is being lifted, the 1.6m wide cleaning brush is not yet in contact with the façade.

When arriving at the building top, the water supply can be turned on. The cleaning brush, which is powered by high- pressure-water (120-160 bar), starts turning immediately. The brush speed is dependent on the water quantity and can be adjusted from nine to 12 litres per minute.

Cleaning is done from top to bottom in order to prevent dirty water running back over cleaned surfaces. For heavily soiled façades, it’s also possible to spray water onto the façade while moving the hyCLEANER to the top of the building, in order to pre-soak stubborn dirt. For areas that are difficult to access with the hyCLEANER (such as crooked corners or lightning installations), it is possible to connect a spray- lance in the basket, so that the operator can clean these areas manually.

When operating the hyCLEANER, only water is needed – adding chemicals or other cleaning agents is not necessary – which makes sense not only from the environmental point of view, but also for economic reasons, as water mixed with chemicals would require collection and costly disposal. The hyCLEANER system can be operated with any type of water, and additionally osmosis-water can be used, to guarantee that the surface dries without leaving streaks.

The whole hyCLEANER concept is service-friendly and low maintenance. The big white wheels, which are located to the left and right of the cleaning brush, can be adjusted to three different positions to determine ‘bristle length’. Depending on the surface structure, it is therefore possible not only to clean smooth glass surfaces, but also corrugated claddings as even grooves of up to 40mm can be cleaned easily.


Only the bristle tips that get in contact with the façade, so that there is only a level of low abrasion. The brush system is spring-mounted which allows the brush to be very flexible and compensate movements of up to one metre. A good, uniform cleaning result is easily achieved.

Manufacturer of the hyCLEANER cleaning system is the Germany company TG hyLIFT GmbH. They offer different cleaning solutions for façade and roof cleaning applications as well as for photovoltaic and solar panels. Besides their standard range of products, they also produce special cleaning solutions, which are perfectly adapted the local conditions of the job site.
