Bat Dung Building Washing

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.

Shutters building washing

Shutters @ Nundah, A Great Option For Windows…And YES! We Clean Them

Want privacy, while still allowing air flow through your home or business? Shutters are a good looking, practical option for your windows. Best of all they are relatively low maintenance…. And that is where we can help you.  Every now and then they do need a good clean to get off accumulated dirt, mould and shot-gun algae, even dreaded bat poo. Our house washing professionals clean many types of shutters such as Thermoshield, Plantation, Vista, Timber and PVC. They also use several techniques depending on the type of shutters you have. In the case of these Thermosheild shutters in the picture our house washing professionals at Get It Clean have a two part shutter cleaning process:

  1. Spray on our custom made shutter cleaning detergent and leave it for 5 minutes to do its work.
  2. Brush and rinse thoroughly for an excellent result.

To remove shot-gun algae we used white sponge treatment which brings the shutters up beautifully. To reinvigorate and get your shutters to sparkle like new call us now on 0404 802 530 and we can have a house washing specialist visit you for a quote.

Washing a Mouldy Awning in St Lucia Saves It From Being Replaced

Think your mouldy awnings need replacing?

Call Get It Clean first and we could save you a lot of money by simply doing a little awning washing for you.

If you take a look at the picture you will see how the black mould and mildew has built up on the awning over time.

It is usually about this point most owners might think that the awning is too far gone and would need replacing. Had it been left a little longer perhaps that would have been the case.

This home owner was savvy though and, as we were there to wash down the exterior of their house and clean the windows anyway, decided to get our opinion on whether cleaning their awning would make any difference.

We have special detergents and soft bristled brushes designed especially to clean awnings without damaging them – so we definitely knew we could bring this one back to life.

And so once we had completed the house washing and window cleaning at this property in St Lucia, we gave the front facade a facelift by restoring this awning to it’s original stunning white.

Mind the Gap! House Washing at Bridgeman Downs

Today the Get It Clean team was house washing and window cleaning at Bridgeman Downs.

One of the questions we get a lot is – “I have noticed a few gaps on the outside of my house where water could potentially get in. Can you still wash my house?”

Believe it or not, a lot of homes have gaps between panels or windows. These can occur over time as your house expands and contracts (with heat or moisture) … or as soil under the building foundation moves.

The answer is of course – yes! We can still safely wash down your home and prevent water entering your house even if there are a few gaps!

Before washing your house we check the exterior for where water might be able to enter and temporarily seal it using our “magical” easy peel tape. It does a great job of sealing any gap AND comes off easily without damaging the paint on your home.

Fortunately at this Bridgeman Downs house, one of our professionally trained house washers noticed a massive gap the owner wasn’t even aware of between the exterior wall and the sliding door.

We take great care to make sure no water gets inside by meticulously taping up just gaps like this (see image).

And after we had finished washing the house and removed the gap sealing tape, the owner was thrilled saying she “felt the house looked like it had had a paint job!”.

To get your home looking like it’s just had a new paint job in far less time and for far less cost – contact us and give us a call, we’d love to help.

Window Cleaning in Aspley So Quiet That …

This double storey beautiful brick home at Aspley has been cleaned by our team for 5 years.

The owners appreciate how fantastically clean windows make your home really shine.

This time when we arrived our window cleaners needed to avoid working in one of the bedrooms to allow a teenager to catch up on much needed sleep.

We quietly worked through the rest of the home – the only way you knew we’d been there was the sparkling glass that we left behind!

Bat Attack! Washed That House at Newmarket Before It Was Permanently Scarred

The owner of this 3 bedroom house was dismayed to find the local bats leaving their trademark all over the weather boards.

Fruit trees in the area weren’t helping either.

Although the house has been recently painted, bat poo can permanently scar paint if it is not washed away in the nick of time.

Our house washing team cleaned from under the eaves of the house down to the ground. We felt sorry for the owner with this bat attack and threw in the carport clean as well to really make the appearance of his home look shmick.

We have been cleaning windows for this family for 10 years in Brisbane and also at their holiday home.
