Exterior House Washing

All painted exterior walls are Soft Washed from gutter to ground level including exterior gutters/spouting/downpipes, eaves/soffits, entrance alcoves, joinery and base of house.

First we apply a combination of the following three cleaning agents to the desired surfaces:

  1. house_surface.jpgA salt based cleaning agent which removes mould and fungus along with killing mould spores, thereby retarding the return of green algae and black fungus.
  2. A grease cutting citrus solution which breaks down diesel fumes from buses/trucks along with road dust and BBQ splatter.
  3. An environmentally friendly neutral detergent which dissolves general dirt and grime.

After applying the three cleaning agents we wash off the same surfaces with LOW pressure water in a wide soft fan (it's so soft you can run your hand under it): Soft Wash. All exterior glass is flushed off with fresh water to remove residue. We do not refer to this glass flush down as window cleaning proper: See Window Cleaning Services.

Older timber window and door frames (joinery typically found on villa's & bungalos) have a tendency to leak when washed, so we hand clean around timber joinery with a soft brush and hose. Just to make certain we avoid any water egrees we recommend you put old towels down on the inside sills to minimise potential leakage. This is not necessary for aluminium joinery.

NOTE: The roof of the house can be cleaned or treated but is NOT included with our standard Exterior House Wash:  See Roof Cleaning Services and inside roof gutters are also quoted separately: See Gutter Cleaning Services.
