It finally feels like Spring has sprung! With winter drawing to an end and temperatures beginning to rise, it’s about that time of year to start thinking about the outside of your house.
Spring cleaning isn’t just for inside your; the exterior of your home also needs tidying up after winter. Read on to see what you should be adding to your Spring cleaning checklist.
Windows and Facia Cleaning
Let the sunshine in! Cleaning the windows of your house, greenhouse and garden shed is a really simple way to let in more light and instantly make your house and garden look cleaner.
Spring is the ideal time for window cleaning, as winter rain storms can leave nasty residue all over your glass, and no matter how good your windows are on the inside, you’ll not get the best of the sunshine in until they’re clean on the outside too.
So grab a sponge and douse it in either diluted washing up liquid, a simple half and half solution of warm water and vinegar or a window cleaning detergent designed for the purpose and get to work!
Better yet, why not let us do it for you? We’ll get your windows sparklingly clean in no time, so book us in to clean your windows and get your house looking clean and fresh for Spring!
Perhaps the least desirable springtime chore is clearing out the gutters, but it is a must-do for homeowners.
With spring showers ahead, you want your gutters clear and ready to handle the runoff. Leaving gutters packed with leaves and debris not only looks messy, but it can also cause leaks, moisture and mildew problems, and rotting wood. Spring is the perfect time to get your gutters clean.
Cleaning your gutters mean getting up the ladder and getting rid of all the leaves, twigs and other gunk that’s made its home in your gutter.
You’ll need a pair of gloves to protect against sharp and dirty debris, and a large container nearby to dump all the gunk into. Make sure your ladder is stable before climbing too high, and if possible, ask someone to steady the ladder for you while you get to cleaning.
Not everyone is happy working up a ladder, especially when it comes to the roof gutters, so why not let us do it for you? Book us to clean your gutters and we’ll have then running clear in no time at all, while you sit back enjoy the Spring weather.
Patio and Decking Cleaning
Throughout the year, your decking and patio areas are subject to weather, dirt, grime, and mold. It’s inevitable, and it can leave your outside areas looking less than perfect.
You’ll be spending lots of time on that patio and Spring is the perfect time to get it into shape for the summer. You can clean your patio with a firm broom and a suitable cleaner, but scrubbing by hand is quite labour intensive.
Get rid of winter mud, water or salt stains, algae and mildew from patios and walkways with a pressure washer or hose with a jet attachment, or, give us a ring and we’ll blast through the dirt and grime as well as any weeds, grass and organic matter to completely clear and clean your outside areas for you.
Your patio will look almost as if it had just been laid by the time we’ve finished cleaning it!
Garage Door Cleaning
This is probably one of the most overlooked outdoor cleaning areas, especially after the winter months. Your garage door can get filthy and should be washed at least once a year in the spring. Any exterior spring cleaning routine isn’t complete without giving this surface some well-needed attention.
A pressure washer is the most efficient cleaning tool for most types of siding as well as garage doors made of wood, fibreglass, steel, and other materials. If you don’t have one, why not book us in to clean your garage door for you?
