I-Shine Cleaning Services cleaners are heavily trained.

High Dusting

High dusting is the process of cleaning difficult to reach spots and removing bacteria, dust and dirt build-up. This process is called high dusting because the areas that are being cleaned, air vents, ceilings, and pipes are usually over 16 feet tall. It is important for high dusting because these are the ones many people neglect, and highly recommended to dust these areas periodically.

When it comes to high dusting, safety is a priority. I-Shine Cleaning Company counts on advanced equipment that reduces the risk of accidents. Our boom truck, scaffold and powered platform enable us to dust at high altitudes while being safe. We provide our employees with personal protection equipment: helmets, full-body harness, steel toe boots and safety glasses.

This will enable them to be safe and perform an efficient and effective dusting. The way to remove dust from the ceiling is not by blowing the dust off with a blower but using a vacuum cleaner. Vacuum cleaners are the right vacuums when dusting from the top as they are the most effective way to keep fine particles of dust from getting into other hard to reach areas.

  • Popular Constructions: Architects have popularized the open ceiling concept in various commercial properties from retail clothing outlets to grocery stores. This construction style has a certain visual appeal whereby HVAC tubes, conduits, and structural components collect a considerable amount of dust. The accumulated dust may present an eyesore to both store management and customers.
  • Shortcomings of Open Architecture Ceilings: Gravity is the foremost opponent of this type of ceiling’s exposed open structure. After a certain period, the accumulated dust, cobwebs and sundry airborne things will gain sufficient mass to fall to the floor. Certain grocery stores have expanded their food offerings with cafeteria type food displays. Wouldn’t a large dust bunny falling into a food tray certainly make lunch less appetizing? The health aspect of performing high dusting has its advantages. The health attribute is something that cannot be ignored. Many health clubs embrace the open architecture for its aesthetic attraction, but the ceiling could very well harbour certain allergens that could adversely affect their patrons. Elimination of these possible respiratory particles should be a high priority. During the cleaning of the open ceiling of a health club, the club members approached our cleaning crew and thanked them for performing the cleaning. Some members also thanked the club employees. Management certainly took notice.
  • Proper Cleaning of the Open Ceiling: Several years ago, a potential customer asked I-Shine Cleaning Services if we could perform a high dusting of the various components of an open ceiling. The matter was researched and studied over a short period, and it was decided that the proper way to perform the cleaning was via vacuums. Special vacuum attachments were also purchased, and we are now able to clean up to 20 feet from the ground. If higher ceilings are encountered, lifts are used.

Some high dusting companies use equipment that knocks the dust and dust bunnies off the open ceiling components and has the debris fall to the floor. It makes little sense to move the problem from the ceiling to the bottom to clean up the floor. It is best to attack the problem and resolve the issue where the problem resides.
