Also referred to as ‘abseil cleaning’, rope access cleaning is a high-level cleaning method.
Used to safely reach and clean the highest windows or tricky building facades, rope access cleaning is a technique that uses specialist ropes and harnesses to suspend cleaners in the air.
During rope access cleaning, skilled technicians anchor themselves to the roof of a building (or the top of a structure) and abseil down the side. They will clean the building or windows as they pass down. As abseil cleaners are secured with a harness and rope – and not confined to scaffolding boards – they can move freely across the building.
This means that rope access cleaning can be used to guarantee a thorough clean of those hard-to-reach spots.
To safely provide rope access services, you must gain a certification awarded by the Industrial Rope Access Trade Association (IRATA).
The IRATA rope access technique was initially created to clean oil rigs but is now used in a wide range of industries.
IRATA is built upon a strict Code of Ethics and as such, it sets out exemplary standards of behaviour and conduct required of anyone providing rope access services. This means you can be sure that if a cleaner is IRATA-certified, they’re providing safe services.
IRATA have three levels of qualification.
At APT-ICC, all our abseil cleaning staff are expertly trained and hold IRATA qualifications as we know that safety is paramount when working onsite and at height. All our staff retrain every 3 years to ensure best practice is always followed.

The IRATA two-rope, fail-safe method has solved many building cleaning problems worldwide. As rope access is a way of reaching tricky areas, rope access cleaning can be used for all matter of building.
From bridges and skyscrapers to confined spaces, there aren’t many jobs that are too difficult for our team of expert abseil cleaners.

As rope access cleaning is so specialist, it’s a common misconception that it’s also expensive.
As rope access cleaning is quick to set up, it’s a much more affordable option than scaffolding. As it causes minimal disruption to the occupants of the building, it’s also beneficial as you don’t need to shut the premises down for cleaning, leading to further cost savings.
How much abseil cleaning costs depends on a few factors including the size of your building and how easy it is to reach the area.
