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.

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!
