RayAccess proudly services commercial and residential properties throughout Southern California. Though most of our residential work is on the westside of Los Angeles, we travel throughout the Valley, Long Beach, and Orange County for commercial work.
Our industrial rope access technicians can safely access and clean skylights at multi-unit residential complexes, hotels, office buildings, retail properties, and single family homes.
Know your limits, falls from heights can result in serious injury or even death. The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, says 500,000 people are treated for ladder-related injuries every year .
RayAccess has the safest protocols in place for skylight window cleaning. Our technicians are certified in industrial rope access. This is the same access method employed by the oil exploration industry. Industrial rope access involves using anchors and a two-line rope pulley system.
In addition to industrial rope access, RayAccess has expertise across the full spectrum of access methods including telescopic water-fed poles, suspended scaffolding, swing stages, man lifts, and ladders. Fall-protection methods enable RayAccess technicians to safely reach and clean skylights at virtually any part of a building or house.
Skylights Collect Dirt:
Skylights come in different shapes and sizes such as flat, arch, dome, and pyramid. Their positioning is either flat or sloped, therefore skylights collect more dirt than vertical window glazing. Given this fact, skylight cleaning is a much more labor-intensive task than traditional window washing.
Skylight Cleaning The Professional Way:
Beware of hiring amateurs for skylight cleaning. Besides skylight cleaning being dangerous, novice window washers can leave hard water stains or scratch glass if not equipped with the right tools.
The RayAccess crew has well maintained equipment and a proven process for cleaning skylights. We avoid skylight cleaning during the hottest part of the day so there is no quick drying from the sun. We also start at the highest row and work our way down. The aforementioned best practices limit water drips which can lead to the need for hard water removal services.
RayAccess technicians remove all dirt and rinse. We apply an environmentally friendly cleaning solution with a scrubber, remove the solution with an abrasive pad to eliminate all contaminants including bird droppings. The last step is to dry the glass with a squeegee. When necessary RayAccess removes and cleans screens by hand. If requested, RayAccess can also work inside your home to make skylights clean inside and out. Our professional team wears shoe covers to keep the interior of your home clean and dry.
Understanding Skylight Condensation:
If your skylights are foggy you may have skylight condensation. Cleaning skylights will not get rid of condensation. The condensation occurs because of excess moisture inside your home. When warm moist air rises to the ceiling, condensation can appear on skylight glass. The remedy is to provide better ventilation or air circulation.
How Often Should Skylights Be Cleaned?
Skylight windows need to be cleaned once or twice per year at the minimum. Since skylights attract more dust than vertical glass windows they need to be cleaned more often. Buildings or homes in close proximity to tall trees, high pollen counts, or ocean air may need much more frequent cleaning than twice per year.
Clean Skylights, Boosts Happiness:)
Happiness is relative to the individual but we know that increasing the amount of natural light and fresh air in your home can lead to many conditions associated with happiness such as higher levels of Vitamin D for increased immunity, higher energy levels, and better sleep.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
On behalf of 1033 Ocean Ave HOA, I would like to thank RayAccess for a great job in cleaning and restoring the exterior of our building. Utilizing your rope access system saved our Association much in costs and we are glad to have avoided the need to erect scaffolding to perform the work. Sergey and his crew were very professional and communicated well during the project.
"Great job in washing our building! Very professional team."
"Thanks so much for the great work! The windows look perfect"
"Great job at a great price! Had them come in to clean our building and were able to reach the high windows with no problem! Called for a free estimate, they came that same day and then came to clean to the next day! Friendly staff as well!"
Thank you so much for cleaning windows at our building. The tenants are so happy! They can finally see what's outside their windows!
I'm really happy with work RayAccess did for us on painting the exterior of Loews atrium. At first, I though it would be a nightmare project because of old paint condition and difficult access to some areas. But it turned out to be a very professional and smooth job! Thank you.
RayAccess painted our outdoor movie screen on a high-rise building in Downtown LA. With their Rope Access method, they saved us thousands of dollars in bringing a huge lift and blocking almost entire street. The job was done perfectly! Thank you so much!
