House Washing

For house washing Auckland is increasingly using Got Dirty Windows for good reason.  Major manufacturers and suppliers all agree that annual house washing is essential if you want to protect the exterior surface of yourHouse washing Auckland building from the elements.  In fact building washing needs to be an integral part of your regular maintenance program.  But proper house washing needs more than a sunny day and a garden hose.

Our city is very wet so for proper house washing Auckland buildings must have all dirt, grime, salt, mould, lichen and moss removed.   The accumulation and build-up of dirt on a building from air pollution and the humid environment accelerate the deterioration of paint and the building surface.  Regular house washing will save you money on maintenance and repairs while rejuvenating the look of your building.

House washing Auckland – Methods for a great result

For proper house washing Auckland buildings need several methods but we generally prefer not to use high pressure cleaning as it can damage sensitive surfaces. A recent study from Auckland University showed that a single use of a water blaster on a house does the equivalent of 14 years of normal weathering.

Because of this, for house washing we generally prefer use a soft brush and eco friendly chemicals or just deionized water.  Stubborn stains will be taken out with a detergent or special acid wash.  Care is always taken when performing building washing to ensure that the condition of the paint is not affected.   We use high quality, biodegradable products to the exterior of your building and once the product has had time to break down the dirt and pollution on the exterior, it is removed with a soft water wash.

House washing with deionized water

Some clients prefer us to just use our deionized water system to clean their buildings.  This uses no chemicals, just very pure water and ensures there are no nasty aromas or aggressive chemicals to disturb customers or staff.  It also complies with regulations which prohibits the use of chemicals on buildings unless there are suitable catchment berms to collect all waste.

Window cleaning and house washing

To ensure you have a complete house wash, talk to us about having your windows cleaned at the same time.  Having a beautifully cleaned home and spotless windows is a great combination.  Having both done at the same time is more cost effective too.
