Importance of Safety Measures in Facade Cleaning

Facade Cleaning is one of the toughest jobs in the world. Cleaning high-rise buildings comes with a different set of challenges and risks. As the best facade cleaning company- Duclean Facility Services believes in providing the best services and solutions with the utmost safety for our daredevils. Adhering to the industry standard safety measures for the cleaners, providing professional training, and updating new technology and tools in our arsenal are Duclean’s top priorities. 

In this blog, we will look at the safety measures and techniques that we undergo to provide the best services while upholding the safety standards in Indore.   

  1. First Step: A Facade Maintenance Manual 

It is very crucial to have a facade maintenance manual. This manual is created for each building according to its unique needs of cleaning and maintenance. A facade maintenance manual consists of every detail about how to maintain the building and what precautions need to be taken care of. Based on this manual the procedure and the safety measures are decided. 

  1. Glass Cleaning: The toughest process

Cleaning the outer part of any facade is the most challenging part. The class-covered buildings come with their own set of risks and thus keeping strong safety measures becomes very pivotal. Here are some of the key safety precautions that Duclean undergoes for this challenging job.  

Highly Trained- It is important to ensure that the cleaning person is highly trained in glass cleaning techniques and knows the use of safety tools in an emergency. 

Safety Equipment- Using high-end safety tools and cleaning equipment like strong extension poles, squeegees, cleaning sponges, and accurate cleaning solutions.

Safety Harnesses- Wearing a strong and tested safety harness while working on the height is a mandatory part of this job.

Spotter– Having extra support on the ground to continuously monitor the process and to take urgent safety measures in case of an adverse situation.  

  1. Securing the Safety line

When working at a considerable height securing the cleaner with the safety line is the most crucial thing. The safety line needs to be anchored properly to the building and the other end should be attached to the cleaner’s harness. These precautions will ensure that workers are safely hanged and will not fall to the ground in the case of any emergency. 

  1. Ascender and Descender

Cleaning a vertical surface is not as easy as it looks. Thus use of ascender and descender became crucial in the facade cleaning services. The ascender helps the cleaner to go up vertically and the descender does the vice versa. This modern tool is attached to the facade from the roof to the bottom with heavy-duty cables providing maximum safety to the cleaners.

  1. Personal Protective Equipment

Equipment like safety helmets, gloves, non-slip footwear, eye-protecting glasses, safety jackets, and harnesses are mandatory for the cleaners to protect themselves from falling debris, hazardous cleaning chemicals, and whatnot.    

  1. Checking the weather before cleaning   

Weather conditions have to be considered while planning for any facade cleaning. High wind and rain are the factors that can affect the safety of the cleaner as well as the quality and efficiency. 

  1. Timely maintenance and inspection

For every commercial cleaning service provider the timely maintenance and inspection of all equipment to check for any wear and tear is necessary. Damaged and ill-functioning tools need to be replaced as soon as possible.

  1. No Distractions are allowed

Workers should be trained to stay all focused while working at the heights. A simple distraction can lead to catastrophic results.   

  1.  Risk Assessment

Planning about every possible situation, checking all safety measures, inspecting all tools, and safety lines, and preparing for every contingency is the part of risk assessment.  

  1.  Emergency Response Plan

Before any facade cleaning operation begins, the team should be ready with a well-organized emergency response plan. This plan should include detailed procedures for tackling accidents, contacting emergency services, and providing first aid.


In conclusion, safety measures are paramount in facade cleaning, as exemplified by Duclean Facility Services. From meticulous planning to advanced equipment usage and comprehensive emergency response plans, Duclean prioritizes worker safety which makes us the best facade cleaning services in Indore. Our commitment sets a commendable standard in the industry, ensuring both quality service and the well-being of the workforce.
