Mould Removal + House Wash = Brand New Home At Chermside

They say a picture paints a thousand words … well, this one definitely tells a story!  When we arrived at this home in Chermside the house was in need of a bit of TLC.  The biggest concern for the owners was the mould and rightly so, given the impact it can have on our health.

But with the Get It Clean Team on site, those concerns soon disappeared.  Using specialised chemicals designed to kill mould, the team were able to treat the mould without damaging the paint.  We also took care of the dirt and cobwebs while giving the house a good scrub from the gutter down and the results speak for themselves.

Many people think that painting is the only solution to freshening up the exterior of your home. In fact, in many cases, a house wash is a cheaper and easier way to restore your home to its former glory.  As one of our many satisfied customers recently commented “the house washing makes our home look brand new!”.

Some of our customers tell us they are concerned for their lawns and plants so if that is your concern too, rest assured that we use environmentally friendly yet very effective detergent to give you the best result possible.

So, if you’ve noticed mould growing on the outside of your home or you feel it needs a ‘face-lift’, give us a call to organise a free quote and see what we can do for you

A Good Clean Makes These White Sails at Bulimba Pristine

Who doesn’t love white?! It’s classic, stylish, makes spaces look bigger, seamless and fresh. The challenge however, is to keep it looking that way! The Get It Clean team were on the task when they arrived at this beautiful Bulimba home.
The challenge: to give the sails a good ‘face-wash’ so that they blended in seamlessly with the house. Are you looking at the photo again asking yourself ‘what sails’?? If so, mission accomplished.
You knew we do in Brisbane window cleaning, house washing and pressure cleaning, but did you realise that we also clean awnings and sails? We have specialised equipment that allows us to get to hard to reach awnings or sails over pools, patios and courtyards. We can also easily clean high awnings along the sides of buildings.
So, if your awnings are looking a bit tired and weather worn, don’t let them bring down the appearance of your home or building. Give us a call, better yet, send us a picture and we’d be happy to discuss with you what we can do to bring them back to life.

What Am I? Teneriffe Commercial Cleaning Conundrum

You may be wondering if we posted this photo the right way up and if so what exactly is it…!!

Well, for our Get it Clean team, it was what they were looking at when they arrived on the job…a narrow light shaft in a commercial multi-storey building.   Not an ideal worksite for a claustrophobic! 

Thankfully given our state-of-the art equipment what looks like a challenge was in fact easily achievable.  Using light-weight telescopic poles the team were able to reach the glass panes in this high narrow space with ease.

This is just one of many commercial building complexes that we look after.  Body corporates and property managers in and around Brisbane are entrusting us with their window cleaning, building wash downs and high pressure cleaning of common areas.  The results speak for themselves and the reviews on our website do too…be sure to check them out! 

If you want to know what we can do to help with the external cleaning of your building, give us a call and we will happily meet you on site to discuss your needs and how we can help.

Chemical Concrete Clean In Taringa

Summer is here! Moments of lingering in the poolside sun for our daily Vitamin D intake is on everyone’s weekend agenda. So how do we prepare??? We dig out our swimmers, detox our bodies. The boy’s hit the gym and stockpile beer in the fridge. We spruce up our pool and prune the poodle…and hedges. But what is to be done about the garden path – those slinky, slippery access strips to the pool? You know…the one frequented by petite wet feet hurriedly dashing for the dunny :-/ What no one wants to imagine is someone kissing the concrete on their way because they slipped on slime.

Case in point are the above before and after pictures of a chemical concrete clean in Taringa. Ain’t it funny that when our garden flourishes the concrete suffers. Maybe not so funny but the alternative could read ‘sterile flourishes whilst our mind suffers’…hmmm, so we’re keeping our gardens right! And maybe in the future building outdoor surfaces from more durable materials will be common practice.

But perhaps you’re reading this blog at a loss as to what can be done to undo three seasons of weathering to your outdoor surfaces.

Tip 1: Don’t wait three seasons before you call Get It Clean! Constant exposure to the elements without man’s intervention can prove more powerful than the best chemical clean. This is true even when you’ve got the best in the cleaning business working for you.

Tip 2: To maintain the ‘good as new’ appeal schedule a routine quarterly chemical clean. You’ll understand why when you’ve spent hours trying to pressure blast your way to clean and clear surfaces. Or could it be you’ve already arrived at “arrrrgggggh” – sorry!

Tip 3: Ask The Get It Clean Team for more tips when you witness them in their element!

Tip 4: Enjoy taking a walk down the garden path. Enjoy the delights of summer in our beautiful leafy green Brisbane.

Non-Intrusive Window Cleaning for Small Commercial Buildings at Eight Mile Plains

What’s the first thing you notice about our guy cleaning the windows of this small commercial building at Eight Mile Plains?

If you work, or have ever worked, in a ‘room with a view’ indulge with me for a moment…

Do you remember the occasion when you were tippy tappin away on your computer only to be startled by someone else’s reflection appearing on your screen? You swivel to see a window cleaner straddling the outside ledge squeegeeing his way across your view, bucket in hand, weaving in and out of fluorescent coloured abseiling ropes. Whilst you quietly ponder (or, like me, you may have said this out loud)  “…are my windows two way?” the hooked up, tightly harnessed window cleaner smiles and winks back at you ;-)! Awkward right?  Even more so if he’s still there 10min later :-o!

Here’s a pithy one-liner our Get It Clean window whiz team strive to deliver on: “We don’t loiter at our business whilst cleaning yours!” And whilst our cleaning crew don’t skimp on safety equipment we want the end result not our equipment to be ‘fluorescently’ obvious to you, your employees and customers!

Now…what does that ‘look’ like in action…how do we do a fancy job without looking too fancy ourselves? Well, do you see any ladders, buckets, bungee equipment, fluorescent abseiling ropes, temporary trestles etc. in this picture? NO – and that’s because we are not stuck in the 1990’s! Less definitely is more when you want to deliver a professional window cleaning service to professional commercial businesses. So we pride ourselves on keeping ‘to the minute’ current with best practice window cleaning techniques, products and specialised equipment.

Did you spot the water fed, light weight extension pole our cleaner is using here? That’s right, he’s using a water fed pole, which means there’s a hose attached. But you can hardly see it right? That’s the way we like it. His presence is not imposing or his methods disruptive. The top of the range cleaning products we use enable our cleaners to deliver a streak free, smudge free clean the first time, which means it’s the sparkle in your windows that will capture your clients eye not the yoyo acrobatics of your window cleaner.

Give us a call if you want our professional Get It Clean team working with you to uphold the professional reputation of your commercial business whilst making your shop front shine!

Fortitude Valley Exterior Building Surfaces Restored With A Wash Down

Getting our buildings surfaces clean and clear of grime is not just a matter of waiting for the next heavy downpour of rain. Grime is sticky and unsightly. It hosts a thriving ecosystem of bacteria and other contaminants that slowly jeopardize the integrity of your exterior building surfaces. And unfortunately ‘grime’ and its partner in crime ‘slime’ have fingerprints. If not routinely washed away a build-up of grime, even after being professional treated, can leave residual stains on even the toughest of surfaces. And that just ain’t pretty or good for business.

The good news is our Get It Clean grime fighting team (…Steve and the crew are kind of the superhero’s of the window cleaning world) were able to restore this buildings surfaces to their former glory. Phewww…another surface saved from the grave 🙂

So how did we do it? Having obtained the necessary information about the grime and the building’s exterior surfaces before we arrived to start work (that’s at no cost to you of course), our highly trained cleaners could spring into action thoroughly spraying the affected areas with a specialty blended cleaning solution specific to this type of grime and surface. There’s a free tit bit for you; using specialty blended cleaning solutions saves us time and you money because you’re not paying our cleaners ‘to wait’ for the product to soak in. You’re only paying us for the clean!

Because maintaining the integrity of the buildings surfaces is very important we coupled a specialty blended solution with specialised exterior building washing equipment. Soft bristled, water fed brushes on light weight extension poles enabled us to wash this building from the ground leaving no scratches or scuffs on the surfaces (which can later lend to rust) only SPARKLE!

We are happy to accommodate any special needs your exterior surfaces may have and spray, swipe, wipe and squeegee our way to making them sparkle! Give us a call on 0404 802 530 to schedule a routine building wash for your unsightly exterior surfaces!

Cleaning Solar Panels Is For Cleaning Professionals – Check Us Out at McDowall!

Every savvy solar panel investor knows keeping your solar panels clean and clear is a must! When you routinely wash clean your solar panels you want to minimise the potential for scuffs, smudges, streaks and scratches in order to maximise the clean natural energy harvested per molecule. This means you max your ‘money in pocket’ profit margin-now that’s savvy!

As you know solar panels are usually designed to self-clean right? But us Queenslanders love to invite a bit of the country into the city by planting native flowering trees to attract the Brissy bird life 😉 The downer is this can increase the build-up of dust and droppings on your solar panel glass.

Cleaning solar panels is not a simple DIY project for the conventional hired house cleaner or perhaps the ‘hubby’ who’s handy with the tools.  It’s a job for qualified, experienced cleaning professionals! Steve knows just the right non-abrasive, detergent-free cleaning products to use along with specialised light weight equipment that enables him to wash your ‘investment’ from the ground.

Notice Steve’s lightweight cleaning equipment is complimented by his ‘light touch’. This is important because being heavy handed, even when cleaning with the right products and equipment, can scratch or scuff the solar panel glass. Steve has selected a special soft bristle brush with a nozzle that allows for a continual stream of water whilst washing resulting in a streak free, smudge free clean every time!

If you want to maximise the performance of your solar panels call us to have them professionally washed clean by Steve and his cleaning team!
