Anyone can vacuum a living room, but washing the exterior of your house often requires specialist equipment and expertise.
New Zealand’s hot summers, damp winters and frequent tropical cyclones can make a mess of the most well-designed exteriors. Unfortunately, the facade of your house is what makes the strongest impression on visitors and neighbours. More than that, a poorly maintained exterior sometimes leads to structural damage.
The good news is that professional house washers can get your walls, windows and outdoor area looking as good as new – without you having to lift a finger.
Why do houses get dirty?
No matter what sort of material your house is made of, it’s an unpleasant fact that it’ll begin to get dirty and deteriorate over time. This isn’t your fault. Air pollution, persistent rain, lack of sun – even too much sun – can all cause problems.
Some of the most common issues we see are timber discolouration due to heavy UV and rain exposure (especially common in Kiwi baches), and brickwork that becomes green with algae, moss, or vanadium stains.
Concrete, stucco, stone, and steel all come with their own problems too – and each requires a tailored strategy to deal with it as effectively as possible.
We can help.
For more than ten years, we’ve been Kelston's leading house washing specialists. Over time, our approach to house washing has developed we never apply a one-size-fits-all method, as we understand that every house is different.
We begin by carefully inspecting your property for hazards, and making sure that nothing in our approach will cause any damage. Our special focus on health & safety is one of the thing our clients most appreciate about how we do things.
After we’ve finished this inspection, we’ll come up with a tailored treatment plan for your property. Once you give your approval, we’ll get to work – using our environmentally friendly citrus-based detergent to loosen up grime, then using a soft wash to remove it.
We take special care not to damage things like flower pots, decorations, and paintwork. Because some windows tend to leak, we’re also very careful when cleaning around window frames.
Our service is thorough – we clean everything between the tip of the spouting and the base of the house – and we’re also happy to tackle things like driveways, decks, and fencing.
Regular cleaning will improve the lifespan and appearance of your paintwork, and help you make a fantastic first impression on visitors or prospective house buyers. It’s also important to get your exterior cleaned before you apply a new coat of paint.
