Our Services

The House & Building Wash Company offers a wide range of exterior cleaning services applicable to residential, body corporate, and commercial buildings.

Pre-paint Cleaning

Our pre-paint cleaning service involves pressure washing exterior walls to prime them for painting. First, we apply a combination of three cleaning agents:

  • A salt-based cleaning product that kills mould and fungi spores, thereby retarding the return of green algae and black fungi.

  • A grease-cutting citrus solution that breaks down residues such as diesel from nearby traffic, road dust, and barbecue splatter.

  • A neutral, environmentally friendly detergent that dissolves dirt and grime.

After applying the cleaning agents, we wash off these surfaces with medium- to high-pressure water (known as Pressure Washing), and all exterior glass is rinsed off with fresh water to remove any residue. Note, however, that this glass flush-down is not the same as a proper window clean (see: Exterior Window Cleaning).

This pre-paint cleaning process is similar to our standard exterior house washing service, with the main difference being the use of higher-pressure water to remove as much old, flaky paint as possible.

NOTE: High-pressure water cannot be used around timber door and window frames (the kind of joinery typically found on villas and bungalows) due to potential leakage. These areas are cleaned by hand with a soft brush and hose, and we recommend placing old towels down on interior sills to minimise any water ingress.

A pre-paint clean does not eliminate the need for scraping and sanding but does provide a clean dust-, dirt-, and algae-free surface to work with.
