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.

Pool Glass & Exterior Surfaces – Pre-sale Facelift At Bulimba

It was a smart move of these homeowners to prioritise their pool glass and exterior surfaces for a pre-sale facelift – what a difference it can make!

Achieving urban sophistication in a residential setting isn’t just about getting ‘the look’ but maintaining ‘the look’. Dressing your pool side terrace with sheets of frameless glass and natural surfaces creates a distinctive contemporary profile. It’s a refreshing approach to visually expanding your space.

Of course the allure of this design lasts as long as your last pool glass and external surface clean does! When the visual connection to green spaces is interrupted by water stains and fingerprints, ‘sleek contemporary’ can quickly become unsightly.

DIY spot cleaning of bird and animal droppings is a must and won’t cost you hours. Droppings are highly acidic and if not removed promptly can leave residual stains on your glass and pavers.  Just be sure to use a chemical free detergent in warm water and non-abrasive cloths on your pool glass.

But quite frankly, who wants to spend hours hand-cleaning their pool glass or pressure washing their pavers every three months?! Did you know the minimalistic appeal of frameless glass and natural surfaces doesn’t have to be high maintenance? Clean and ‘unseen’ pool glass is achievable! And when putting the house on the market, clean glass can make your place look resplendent.

So, whether you are considering a maintenance or pre-sale glass clean and gurney, give Get It Clean a call or email us for your free quote.

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.

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!

Mould… only a memory! House washing in St Lucia

Around Brisbane we see many buildings and homes with mould issues. You’ve probably heard of black mould but there are more than one hundred types of mould commonly found in and on homes, which can appear green, yellow, brown, grey or even white.  It can be hard to identify mould by its appearance as it can vary due to many factors including the surface it is growing on. It is often found growing on the roof, eaves, and interior or exterior walls of buildings. But never in your fridge 😉  Not only can mould look unattractive, it can do a lot of damage to your property too. Mould comes from the family of fungi. Some diseases of animals and humans can be caused by ingesting or inhaling mould spores or toxic compounds produced by moulds. Some symptoms can be skin rashes or respiratory difficulties and it is best to consult a doctor in this case. For this reason, our professional building cleaners & house washing experts at Get It Clean have a specialised treatment plan for removing this unsightly problem from your property.

  1. Using PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) including gloves and mask we spray on our mould removal cleaning solution and scrub your building with brushes to remove mould and other building dirt and grime.
  2. We thoroughly rinse to restore your building or home to a ‘mould free’ state!

Early intervention is definitely a key strategy when it comes to exterior building mould removal, and will save you money in the long run.  Call Get It Clean now to rid your property of mould and free expert advice on how to deal with this unpleasant and unwelcome guest!

Operation Bat Dung! Building Washing in Hamilton

Have you noticed piles of faecal material (like the one in the photo) around your building or home? If so then you probably have bats! You will notice also that the faeces may have a shiny speckled appearance (from all the insect wings) and will crumble like dust when touched.

Guano is another term used for bat droppings.  Bat guano carries fungal spores that cause Histoplasmosis which can be fatal to humans. Histoplasmosis is contracted as a result of inhaling faecal dust matter from the droppings.  Bat guano must be handled similarly to asbestos since the threat of disease is high. Our professional building cleaners at Get It Clean have a very specific plan of action when it comes to removing the guano.

  1. Use appropriate PPE (Personal Protective Equipment), including a HEPA filter mask.
  2. Wet down the affected area with a specially made microban germicidal cleaner concentrate and allow it to break down the guano.
  3. Our building washing team will wash away all the matter and thoroughly rinse all affected surfaces to restore your building to a bat guano free building!

Buildings where bats have resided in or around for years can suffer incredible damage from guano and urine left behind.  The key to minimal damage is regular cleaning and maintenance. Get It Clean, Brisbane’s premier house washing and commercial building washing company, is happy to advise you if you have a problem like this or provide you with a quotation to have it removed.
