Step Cleaning

About Escalator Step Cleaning

People worldwide use escalators every day, and in many buildings they are set as a focus point and take up a lot of visible space. And just like everyday floor or glass cleaning, escalator cleaning is essential to keep the visible steps looking pristine.

But escalators are notoriously difficult to clean properly. Conventional cleaning machines and sponge systems fail to clean the tops of the steps to an acceptable standard, which then leaves dirty front risers and oily black tram lines on each step beneath the brush guards.

So at ESD, we exclusively use the German made Juma escalator STEP100 and Juma TRAVEL 600 cleaning machines. The Juma machines ensure we get the job absolutely right every time. They deep clean the steps horizontally and vertically unlike conventional cleaning methods, such as risky sponge systems or arduous cleaning by hand.

In a single operation, the Juma STEP 100 cleans the complete visible step area quickly, easily & safely, without leaving any residue.

Using our own specially developed tools, in addition to the Juma machines, our skilled technicians will transform the look of an escalator, removing years of grime from the top treads and vertical rises, leaving a bright clean finish.

What we offer:

  • We clean the whole of the visible step, treads, vertical risers and beneath the brush guard, with our ‘Das Original” Juma made Rotomac & Rotofast machines
  • All our work is done out of hours
  • One-off deep cleans or regular maintenance contracts

Most conventional cleaning machines are not up-to the task of deep cleaning large travelators. Many simply do not have the power or capacity to carry out a deep clean of this type. Our machines are the only machines capable of tackling these size travelators.

After completing a thorough deep clean to allow a proper adhesion of the paint, we spray the yellow demarcation lines to the edge of the escalator steps, to either match existing or in the choice of your preference.
