Ilford is a large town in East London, in the London Borough of Redbridge. Identified as a metropolitan centre in the London Plan, Ilford is classed as a significant commercial and retail centre for the wider south east of England.
Ilford has a very large ethnic-minority population, one of the most diverse towns in the country, with significant Jewish, Hindu, Muslim and Sikh communities. House prices in Ilford are generally far lower compared to the average in Greater London. The average house price in 2014 in Ilford’s Loxford ward was £193,000, which was the sixth lowest out of the 628 wards of Greater London.
As is commonly a problem with UPVC windows, those on a large residential building has suffered a long-term limescale problem. Water may have a high content of minerals such as calcium and magnesium; when it evaporates from a surface such as a window frame, it may leave spots known as calcium deposits or limescale.
Rope access operatives from PTSG Building Access Specialist Ltd have been using their specialist skills to clean the windows on all parts of the residential building. PTSG commonly uses rope access for a range of applications, whether to repair, decorate or install signage or safety systems to the exterior of a building. Rope access allows operatives to move laterally and vertically, safely and easily.
