Tarragindi Window Clean Makes History Crystal Clear

Windows don’t just let in light, they can define a period, capture an era and our history. This 1925 Queenslander with characteristic federation style windows is a case in point.

If the windows are the eyes of the home, can you just imagine what these windows have seen?!  The history that we can only read about in history books, or more commonly online these days, was lived inside these very windows.  That is the wonder of living in a period home!

As these home owners appreciated, such historic windows deserve TLC, which is our sentiment exactly.  The Get it Clean Team know how to treat such aged beauties with care.  When it comes to cleaning federation style windows they are unique and extra care and attention is needed.   As unfortunately many have experienced when it rains, the age of these windows can show and water can sometimes leak in. Well not so when our professional team get to work. Our team ensure that when the windows are being cleaned outside, no water leaks into your home.  By the time we leave your property, you will just be left with a crystal clear view from the eyes and soul of your home.

So if you have a period home, a classic Queenslander, give it the care it deserves. Call the Get it Clean Team so we can help you restore your windows to their former glory.

Wilston Industrial Chic: Tricky Window Cleaning Access Made Easy

Angular lines, aluminium sheets, metal support beams, external semi-frameless glass balustrades…are you thinking what I’m thinking??? If you said ‘industrial chic’ we’re on the same page!

Moving on…what makes ‘industrial chic’ complete? Keeping the balustrade glass clean and clear. This is a must! Especially is this important when it’s a prominent feature of your street frontage.

With land prices in the city causing many a jaw to drop it’s not uncommon for modern homes to share the fire wall. This can make cleaning the outside of your high windows risky or near impossible without encroaching on your neighbour’s space. This proved no obstacle for our Get It Clean team (and we didn’t need to ask your neighbour for permission to set up a ladder)! Well equipped with extendable, water-fed poles and manoeuvrable squeegee heads we made light work of this tricky access challenge.

Now just for a moment, try to imagine yourself cleaning these glass balustrades on BOTH sides at a height! Perhaps you don’t have to imagine. Is this the reason you are searching for a professional window cleaner with experience in handling glass balustrades or tricky access windows? Search no further!

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.

Ascot History Made To Shimmi

Many a million-dollar home decorates the landscape at Ascot. But of rare distinction is the home with history. Dating back to 1912 the Gumerache estate was once a hospital but is now a treasured home. The elegantly minimal, double-hung panelled windows are reminiscent of the post-colonial era. They are tastefully dressed in discreet finery allowing their design and views of lush lawns to create the sense of whimsy unique to history.

These gorgeous, delicate windows need more than the usual attention when you’re trying to make history shimmi!  We appreciate panelled glass is all about clean lines giving the eye perspective for a wider view. So smudged corners are not acceptable. Neither do you want fur, fluff or dust sticking to any residue left by cheap window cleaning products or sloppy technique.

A gentle touch, the right equipment and an eye for detail is the difference between a professional clean and a reason to scream (that is, if you have ever tried to clean them yourself!). This finicky work is not unfamiliar to our Get it Clean crew.  We are accustomed and well-equipped to restore niche windows to their former sparkling glory.

Calling the professional Get it Clean team who have years of experience will make your architectural piece of history come back to life with sparkling clean windows.

Enjoy The View From This Refurbished Ascot Home

Do you pay big money to live in a particular location only to find yourself rarely enjoying the indoor comforts of home? Why is that? Well isn’t it true that despite the Queensland heat we thrive in a ‘outdoor living’ lifestyle? Our senses are invigorated, our need for aesthetics satisfied by absorbing the benefits of green spaces and natural light.

 

Did you know you don’t have to refurb your house to enjoy such benefits in the comforts of home? Your home already has a window right? Probably more than one I’m sure 😉 So where am I going with this? Introduce your desired green space by positioning established pot plants throughout your living areas. Then simply pull up blinds to unleash the aesthetic power of your windows! Invite ‘daylighting’ into your everyday ‘at home’ experience.

 

Perhaps your approach to ‘indoor living’ has been to pull down the shutters, lock down the hatches and block out the light. If so, remember the unveiling of your windows will reflect this out-of-sight, out-of-mind mentality. But don’t be alarmed or discouraged by the accumulation of dust, water marks and other visual undesirables on your glass. And please don’t let embarrassment stop you from resurrecting your windows with a fuss-free professional window clean.

 

Our team here at Get It Clean are happy to help and are equipped with the right products and technique to achieve your desired results. Your clean and clear windows will satisfy the eyes and allow ‘daylighting’ to work its wonders on your plants and on your mind :-).

Window Cleaning Arch Windows Not A Problem at Shorncliffe

Talk about a school boasting ‘old-school’ charm coupled with modern practicality! When we arrived on sight at this beautiful school we were thrilled to see a juxtaposition of old and new. The durability of aluminium frames partnered with classic wooden veneer ‘arch’ or ‘radius’ windows. So called because, as you can see, the bottom of the window is a rectangle shape while the top is an arch.

If you are a proud owner of arch windows you know there is more to them than their visual appeal. They can be installed operable or fixed and can be detailed, as these ones are, with grids; bars that divide the windows into smaller panes. These are the positive things you need to recall when you realise how TRICKY they are to clean! Yes…they are gorgeous to look at but can be a little high maintenance (as most things gorgeous are ;-)).

Because we know ‘windows’ well, this eye candy proved no obstacle for our expert window cleaning professionals. Neither did cleaning two stories of arch windows (using extension poles, specialised squeegee’s and expert technique) easily intimidate our Get It Clean crew. With an eye for detail, the van loaded up with the right equipment for this tricky, finicky work, we restored the sparkle that gorgeous windows justly deserve.

How did we do it? Of course working with top quality equipment and products is a big part of it, but so is our window cleaning technique – ‘fanning’. Moving the squeegee back and forth over the glass with suitable pressure and continuous motion to leave the glass streak free and drip free. This is something you can try at home! Then next time you call us to restore the glamour to your arch widows get the professionals to show you what ‘fanning’ should really look like!

High Window Glass Washed Easily at a Brisbane Hospital

What’s the first thing that comes to mind on viewing this window washing moment in time? Does the expression “go go gadget…extension poles” ring a bell? Or…what about “there ain’t no window high enough, there ain’t no grime tough enough to keep us from getting to it”…suffice to say this was definitely one of Steve’s ‘four story glory’ moments! And no doubt, as Steve was washing windows at this Brisbane hospital building, he was humming a similar tune.

The invention of light weight, water fed extension poles has really revolutionized the window washing world. We can now efficiently and safely clean high windows, ladder free, from the ground up. This is fabulously fuss free! What was, once upon a time, a “how many ladders can we ethically fix to a van?” exercise is now a fete of finesse. This is sure to keep commercial window cleaners all around the world humming whilst they wash 😉

If you look at the photo closely you’ll notice the extension poles are designed ingeniously without any obvious water pipes hanging off them. Why is that? In two words, practicality and functionality. Our equipment is purpose made to allow a water fed hose to be snuggly threaded through the middle of the pole. Such innovation has a two faceted purpose.

1. It minimises trip hazards. This leaves the Work Place Health and Safety Officer humming.

2. It allows a continuous stream of water to be pumped through the hose, flooding the window as it’s washed clean. This results in a scratch, smudge, dust free clean every time. Which means your window’s sparkle for longer in between washes.

If it’s time for your business’ high window’s to be washed clean and you’re after a fabulously fuss free experience that will leave you humming, give our Get It Clean team a call. We are happy to help!

Tricky Window Cleaning In Ascot…We Do Whatever It Takes!

There is nothing worse than having as a feature a gorgeous, sparkling pool only to be obscured by fuzzy glass.

The design of this beautiful 2 storey home with the pool right up alongside it really makes for innovative window cleaning methods.  Just quietly, on this hot summer day our boys were actually quite happy to take a bit of a dip and carry out their professional window cleaning at the same time!

When glass is this close to the pool –  whether it is pool fencing or the house itself,  it makes a huge difference if the glass cleaning is maintained because this will largely avoid ugly hard water stains appearing over time.  This then becomes a major problem and requires polishing to remove, not to mention the expense.

At Get It Clean we love a challenge and we enjoy exceeding our customers expectations… so you are delighted with the result. Call us now for a quote on 3268 4246 and we can talk you through the maintenance options to keep your property looking its sparkling best!
