We still cover Southampton covering Eastleigh, Winchester, Fareham, New Forest, Dorset, Romsey, Andover, North Hants, Wilts, Sussex and even London. .
Why use the Reach Systems?
Many window cleaners and other maintenance companies have invested in new high-reach equipment to enable them to clean windows from the ground thus eliminating or at least minimizing the use of ladders. It is becoming increasingly difficult to access high areas of properties to carry out maintenance due to H&S regulations and the cost of access equipment such as scaffolding and towers. One area of a building that requires regular attention is the gutter. It can be high and difficult to reach. Sometimes, the only way to get access is with the use of a scaffold. In the past, I have spent time climbing up and down ladders to access gutters and roof line areas but there's always a limit to the height and the angle of the ladder. Sometimes, a second man is needed to foot. A risk assessment must be in place on many sites. Lots of time planning the safe execution of the job is spent before it is even started. This drives up costs. Some are forced to cut corners and compromise safety. Most companies will not allow the use of ladders at their properties.
Can you clear gutters from the ground?
Now, there is a similar way to clear and clean gutters: A pole system connected to a powerful vacuum machine. This reaches up to approx 50' and can be used for all sizes and shapes of gutters and, being light-weight, can be used at lower angles and to reach difficult areas.
The system can be operated by one man.
It is the safe way to do the job.
No expensive access equipment is required.
Vacuum units are self contained or powered from the van.
All debris is collected into the cylinder and bagged up so there's no mess.
It cuts the job time by less than half.
99% of the time, the Gutter Vac will do the job but we have the use of a cherry picker and other access equipment if its required.
Can we prove the gutters are clear?
There is a camera survey service available so you can look into your gutters from the comfort of your office. You can have a before and after video to give you peace of mind that the job is completed properly. Most companies and home owners are pleasantly surprised at the cost of this service and delighted with the results especially when their gutters and fascias are also cleaned. Customers usually ask for a repeat service the following year. If gutters are cleared out regularly, the joints last longer and there's less need for more extensive and expensive repairs.
HIGHVAC was one of the first companies in the south to offer this service.
We have the experience and knowledge to deal with all types of gutter problems. We've invested heavily in the business in the way of equipment and operative training to be able to deliver the best results every time. I would be delighted to provide you with more information or a demonstration. You may also visit www.highvac.co.uk
