Make It Shine By Hiring An Exterior Cleaner In Wellington

Through all the seasons in Wellington that we get, there’s one thing that’s for sure: our houses do tend to take a battering. Even though the snowfall in Wellington generally sits at zero, we get our fair share of wind and rain, which can lead to our property exteriors getting dirty and weathered ahead of their time.

If you have a dirty house in The Glen, need your courtyard cleaned before you put on your own Wellington craft beer tasting evening, or even need cleaning contractors to clean Westpac Stadium before a game, then you need to hire an exterior cleaner for your residential or commercial property.

Services provided

The main cleaning services that professional cleaners will provide include

  • Driveway cleaning
  • Deck cleaning
  • Paving cleaning
  • Window cleaning
  • Fence cleaning
  • Concrete cleaning
  • Outdoor furniture washing
  • Pre-paint washing
  • General house washing

They use water blasting techniques generally, along with scrubbing. Professional cleaning contractors can work with almost all surfaces including brick, sandstone, weatherboard, hardwood, metal and tile.

High pressure cleaning can take away years of dirt in the flick of a switch. A build-up of dust, dirt and lichen and moss growth needs to be removed regularly to avoid deterioration of the surface underneath.

For delicate paintwork, they can also soft wash the exterior of your house, instead using sponges and rags to gently wash away the grime.

An outside cleaner may provide gutter cleaning and roof cleaning services, which should be high on your list of things to do before winter falls, especially if you have trees that overhang your house and drop leaves.

You may simply want to tidy up the yard before holding an outdoor party, in which case they can clean your decking or patio, or courtyard, pathways and tiled areas, sweep up leaves and ensure the surfaces are restored to a good condition.

An exterior cleaner may operate in multiple roles; they may also be gardeners, interior cleaners or handymen. The main tool that an external cleaner might require for your job is a high pressure hose, such as a Karcher. They may also use low pressure cleaning and possibly chemicals to clean with, so make sure you inform them of any allergies.

Time and Cost

Most exterior house cleaning will take no longer than a day, unless you have a particularly large house or outdoor area. Hourly rates will differ between cleaners. With no equipment and little experience, they may charge as little as $15/hour. Generally outdoor cleaning should cost no more than $60/hr. Exterior cleaners may instead charge per metre squared that they clean. Expect to pay more for any job that requires the cleaner to work at height (and make sure they are insured for high cleaning and possess the correct safety gear).

How to find a cleaner in Wellington

Don’t waste time searching around for cleaners online, let them chase your job. Use Builderscrack to post up your job and let tradespeople contact you. Include in your description of the job the approximate area to clean, time elapsed since last clean, what material the area is made out of and a picture if you think it will add to the description.
