Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I worry about washing my house?

Washing house cladding and other surfaces is part of regular maintenance that’s important to stay on top of to keep your investment in good condition and staying dry. Regular cleaning will help keep things safe and looking good around your home or commercial building exterior

What is included in a house wash?

We wash everything from the spouting down to the ground. This includes all exterior walls, pole brushing of windows and framing and cleaning green mould off the spouting. After the wash we do a walk around to double check our work and correct any spots that may have been missed.

How often should I have my house washed?

We recommend a yearly wash to keep the houses exterior looking great and in good condition. Yearly washing helps to  prevent damage to the exterior cladding that can be done by mould, carbon soot and dirt.

What is 'soft-washing' and why is it better?

A soft wash for houses involves spraying on a safe chemical blend to break down mould and dirt build-up. This is followed by a low-pressure wash. Soft washing prevents the need for any high pressure waterblasting that can strip paint and cause cladding damage.

Are your cleaning products going to harm my plants?

No, we rinse down plants before and after our work, which stops any damage. We move any pot plants we can away from the house or area we are washing.

How do you clean decking and paths?

We use a medium pressure to blast away dirt and mould build up when we are cleaning decks and paths. We also use a specialist Whirlaway surface cleaning machine on larger paths and driveways.

How often should I get my gutters cleared?

At least once a year is recommended. Although, houses located right by trees and sand should look at getting them done every six months as more build-up can occur.

How does your SkyVac work?

The Skyvac gutter cleaning machine is really like a big vacuum cleaner for wet and blocked gutters. Our cameras check the gutters before and after and we take photos so we can all see what’s going on up there. Once we know what we’re working with, all the leaves and other vegetation in the gutter are sucked out into the Skyvac. So it makes things very nice and tidy for everyone.

How many stories can you reach with the Skyvac?

Our SkyVac can reach straight up 2.5 to 3 Stories

How long will it take to clean my house?

Size, floors, and accessibility plus what areas you want cleaned all impact how long our process will take, but we can give you an estimate when we asses your property.

What areas of the home do you cover with your services?

Everything outside! From the top of the roof to the garden path and everything in between.

What safety measures are taken to protect my property during the process?

We rinse the entire area both before and after cleaning so that no chemical residue is left behind.

Can you treat my roof and how long does it take?

Yes we do cleaning of all types of roofs, decks and concrete areas throughout the Wellington region, using a specialised spray treatment. The chemical application gets to work straight away and continues having a slow release effect over several months as the rain and wind completely wash away moss and mould. This product also deters any regrowth.

Do you wash windows?

Yes, we do exterior window washing. We can either wash them with tap water and a pole brush or use our pure filtered water system.

How does your pure water filtration system work?

The pure water system works by filtering normal tap water through two ion exchange resin chambers which removes all the small particles in the water that can cause streaking. Using this purified water means the windows will dry streak and spot-free.
