The thing is, cleaning the exterior of your home can be a very daunting task. This is why most of us like to put it off as much as possible.

If you need help in sprucing up your home, our professional house washing service is the most cost-effective, results-guaranteed solution and time-effective for you!
But before anything else, it’s best to prepare your house before the service. Big, bulky, heavy objects can disrupt the cleaning process. Worse, it can harm technicians who are about to clean your home. For hassle-free and safe cleaning, here are a few handy tips on preparing for a house washing service.
Close windows and doors to avoid water from going inside the house.
Perhaps the most important step to take before a house washing service is to prevent any water from entering your home. If you have cracks or openings in your windows and doors that aren’t sealed, that could be a problem.
For that reason, make a detailed inspection of all of your home’s windows and doors. Are any of them improperly sealed? If so, it might be in your best interest to get some sealant and close them up in time for the house washing.
Keep kids and pets away.
It can be fascinating for kids to see how a pressure washer works, but it’s not a good idea to let them stay near the technicians. They can be a distraction, and they can get harmed. The same thing goes for your pets too. Keep them away from the site so nobody gets harmed.
Move or cover anything you don’t want to get wet.
There are probably many things that come into your mind when you’re preparing for house washing service. Now, what are the things you don’t want and shouldn’t get wet? We’ve listed the most important things for you.
- Outdoor furniture (tables, chairs)
- Outdoor electrical equipment (fly zappers, garage motors, motorised windows, lights, phone chargers, TVs)
- Outdoor wall fixtures (pictures, paintings)
- Clothes from the clothesline
- Freshly painted areas
- Bare wooden fixtures that have been varnished/oiled (doors, window frames, posts etc) and wooden deck areas that have not received a new coat within the last 12 months
Move your car out of the way to allow us close access.
Technicians need ample space to work and wash off all the dirt and grime on surfaces. So if your car blocks the space, move it out of the driveway in the meantime. This is also important for driveway cleaning. House washing professionals need to see tire marks and other debris on the driveway, so you need to move your car out too.
Check your window screens.
Sometimes, loose window screens can get dislodged during a thorough house washing service. While this might not seem like a big deal right now, it’s possible that dislodged window screens can cause further damage to either themselves or your windows. In other words, it’s not worth taking the risk!
If you have any window screens that aren’t fitted tightly, removing them might be a good idea. You can put them back in their proper location after the professional house washing service is complete. Otherwise, leave the window screens on so they can get washed, too!
Beware of electricity.
Just a heads up, electricity and water don’t mix. We all know this by heart, but there are times when you forget to move away or cover anything that can cause accidents.
Obviously, include electronic appliances and gadgets to the list of items to relocate. Let us know if there are exterior electrical outlets, indoor power points installed outside, or electrical fuse boxes under decks that must be protected from water. Also, don’t forget to unplug extension cords.
This might be daunting for some people, but it’s a must-do. Remove and pack away any pot plants that can get in the way of work. You don’t want to damage any decorative plants you may value.
