Your plants grow better with good light, artificial or natural. Clean glass is a must in Finland do to the short summers. By washing once or twice a year you shall know the difference. For example washing between March and May you can benefit of maximal sunlight during the summer.
An extra wash in October guarantees that your greenhouse roof and gutters are clean during the winter months. Leaves, soot and moss can cause big damages on the roof and the glass with temperatures below zero. By washing the roof and gutters these damages can be avoided. The machine is cleaned after evry use with Vircon S.
For everyone that has his greenhouse roof mechanically cleaned should have a safe service rail alongside the facade with sufficient carrying capacity. The service rail namely has to make sure that the service platform, including persons and machinery can be safely moved alongside the greenhouse. With a service rail your greenhouse is also suitable for transport of the Repair Shuttle, so possible glass damage can be repaired from the outside. We can deliver and install such a service rail for every Venlo greenhouse.
