I needed to highlight this from a site of ours in London.
This is a site which recently changed the FM provider, the company had brought in a new system of escalator cleaning. As you can see from our picture the amount of what we call waste/sludge not being recovered by this new system is really bad considering they were deep cleaned by ESD only nine weeks ago at this high footfall site. I have since spoken to the FM company and made them aware of what damage this new system may do to the internals of the escalator, which will not only put the escalator out of commission but also be very expensive to repair.
If you have a high footfall site and need expert advice on systems of work, working out schedules, or anything more bespoke, you need to speak to us, we are a Lift & Escalator company who also carry out cleaning, not a cleaning company who have bought a cleaning machine and not had the correct training for this very specialised work.
All of our technicians have a minimum requirement of being Otis AllSafe accredited for working safely on escalators, which they need to pass annually, and by early 2018 all of our technicians will have the LEIA NVQ EOR/204 Basic Escalator Safety Escalator Technician qualification .
Your escalators are in safe hands with us.
