COVID-19 – Book an Infection Control Clean

As a result of the recent COVID-19 outbreak, the team at GT have obtained Hydrogen Peroxide, a chemical known to kill viruses, including COVID-19 (Coronavirus) from surfaces and external environments.

As you may be aware, once transmitted, COVID-19 can transfer from one surface to another. As part of our Infection Control Cleaning service, we will be using Hydrogen Peroxide to treat and keep your premises is as safe as possible during this uncertain time.

With many businesses enforcing temporary shutdown periods, now is an ideal time to conduct your Infection Control Clean with minimal disruption to your daily operations.

While we are working continually to meet client needs, we suggest you book your service as early possible and kindly ask for your patience during this time.

For more information on how Hydrogen Peroxide can help combat COVID-19 as part of our Infection Control Cleaning, refer to the BBC’s article “Covid-19 How long does the Coronavirus last on surfaces?”

How to Clean High Rise Windows

Ever wondered how high-rise windows are kept sparkling clean all-year-round?
The answer – GT Cleaning!

While you won’t find us abseiling from the Eureka Tower, our skilled team of professionals do service internal and external windows under 40 metres high of high-rise body corporates, offices and apartments across Melbourne.

Read more below to find out how we keep your high-rise windows pristine and how you too can keep them mark-free between visits.

The GT Method

Our team utilise high quality, specialised window-cleaning accessories and licensed equipment to clean your windows both quickly and effectively, including:

1. Boom Lift

As our team specialise in external window cleaning under 40 metres, we use boom-lifts or ‘scissor-lifts’ to reach your external windows with ease. Our professional cleaning team also includes qualified boom-lift operators  who are well versed in the safety measures and procedures associated with operating a boom-lift safely and effectively.

Our cleaners work systematically from the top windows down to ensure no spillage or dirt falls on already cleaned windows.

2. WaterFed Poles

To clean external windows, our team use WaterFed poles – a long extendable broom pole that dispenses purified water through the brush head. WaterFed poles can range from 10-20 metres long and are generally made of fibre glass or carbon fibres.

3. Purified Water

Purified water is optimal for window cleaning as the purification process removes all dissolved water solids, allowing the water to quickly evaporate without leaving nasty streaks or residue spots. Click here to see how it’s done!

4. Squeegees & Scrapers

For internal windows, our professionals utilise more traditional window cleaning methods, including eco-friendly window detergent, squeegees and scrapers to achieve a flawless, glistening finish.

Tips & Tricks

Want to give window cleaning a try? Check out our favourite window cleaning tips and tricks below you can use in your home, office or apartment.

1. Keep an eye on the weather

When it comes to cleaning your windows, cloudy days are your best friend! Cleaning windows when the sun is beaming can often result in the cleaning solution sticking to the glass, leaving residue marks and streaks, so keep this in mind and plan ahead of time.

2. Choose the right cleaning solution

When there are thousands of commercial and homemade cleaning solutions out there to choose from, finding the right product can be a daunting task.

While it may seem basic, Palmolive is a great inexpensive detergent that is both gentle on the hands and suds well for window washing.

And, if you’re looking for a more natural solution, white vinegar and water on a microfibre cloth works just as effectively. Check out our blog here for more eco-friendly cleaning solutions to clean your home, office or commercial windows!

3. Microfibre!

While it might be a no-brainer to some, microfibre cloths really are a must-have for every cleaning toolkit. With approximately 200,000 fibres per square inch, they can hold up to six times their weight in water – making them the perfect sidekick for streak-free window cleaning.

We love the Oates 3-Pack that includes 3 different coloured cloths – this way you can easily designate a cloth for general purpose, one for windows and glass and one dust and polish. And, if you can’t get a hold of microfibre, try re-using your newspaper for an almost perfect streak-free finish.
