Canterbury is the place to be! You’ve got the Paint n Sip Studio, which combines drinking with art, the option of an ultra-fast fibre broadband connection in Christchurch, a killer team in the Rugby World Cup, and it’s just a short trip away from Christchurch to Nelson.
Rebuilding Christchurch has been key to keeping up the spirits of the community and banding together after the Christchurch earthquakes. There has been a great deal of clean up involved and many exterior cleaners would have been doing their part to put things back together.
This is a short guide on external cleaners to see what they can do for you.
If your exterior paintwork is looking dirty, there’s moss growing on your courtyard floor and walls, there’s a build-up of dirty tyre marks on your driveway, or you need to clean your outdoor entertaining area before a party, then an exterior cleaner is the person who will be able to help you out.
How to find a cleaning contractor
Use Builderscrack to have the cleaning professionals find you. When you post a job on Builderscrack, you will have various contractors vying for your job. This saves you time and effort calling around various companies.
Include in the ad all the specifics of the job: what the surface to be cleaned is made of, what the surface area is in metres, whether it involves any working at height, a description of the dirtiness of the surface (Is it dust? Mould? Lichen?), a picture of the area if possible and a timeframe you’d like the job completed by if it’s urgent.
What does an external house cleaner do?
An external cleaner may or may not do roof and gutter cleaning or window cleaning, depending on whether they have the correct equipment and insurance to work at heights. Exterior cleaners may use chemicals or environmentally friendly cleaners/cleaning agents. If you have a preference make sure to put it in your post.
Many exterior cleaners also do interior cleaning too, so if you’d like both at the same time, be sure to mention that.
Cost of cleaning
Usually exterior cleaners will charge you by the square metres involved in the job. You may also be able to find cleaners that charge by the hour. Some very cheap cleaners may be available, however you will usually have to provide the cleaning tools for them to work with (scrubbing brush, cleaning agent, high pressure hose, etc.).
Cleaners that work in teams will generally charge more but will get the job done in no time flat. If you like contractors to complete a job quickly and don’t have the time to watch over them, then we recommend a cleaning pair or team.
