House Washing


When it comes to house washing, there are many methods and techniques to clean the exterior of your home. Whether you have vinyl siding, gutters, windows and/or a deck with railing that is dirty, typically we can get it clean again.

When you decide to hire us to beautify your house and/or business, our qualified, experienced professional will methodically start at the top and work their way down. On a typical house exterior cleaning job where our client’s order gutters (in and out), siding washing, window/screens cleaned, and deck/patio/walk/driveway power washing this is how we do it.

1. Gutters (In):

We begin with a good vacuuming and rinsing of the inside of your gutters.

2. Gutters (out):

We apply a solution to the outside of your gutters to loosen any dirt and algae. Then we gently scrub the exterior of the gutter with a long water fed pole and brush system. (See our YouTube Channel for a demonstration)

3. Vinyl siding, decks and railings:

Next, we apply a cleaning solution to all of the siding, railings and decks to be cleaned to loosen any dirt and algae. We follow that with a gentle brush scrub with the water fed pole system for higher, hard to reach areas. On the lower level areas, we carefully power wash the siding to the ground. In some cases, our client’s request a brush wash from top to bottom.

4. Window cleaning:

When it comes to high windows 4-5 floors above ground, our qualified and experienced professional will utilize our water fed pole and brush system to safely scrub and rinse not only the window glass, but also the frames and tracks as best he can.

If you desire to have your windows hand scrubbed and dried by squeegee, we can safely reach most windows up to 3 floors above ground.

5. Walkways and driveways:

The finishing touch to having the exterior of your home beautified is to have your concrete walks and driveway pressure washed by a qualified professional.

Gutter Cleaning Season in Lower Mainland British Columbia

It’s Gutter Cleaning Season in Vancouver, BC

It is gutter cleaning season once again in the Fraser Valley, BC. As the rain begins to fall you may find your gutters beginning to overflow. This is typically the result of a build up of debris in your gutters (or eaves). The debris usually causes the drain hole to become plugged and then when it rains the gutters fill, overflow and deposit dirt on the outside of the gutter. This cycle will continue as it continues to rain until a professional is hired to remove the debris and restore the flow of the drain hole.

Occasionally, there may not be a lot of debris in the gutter and the drain hole may just be plugged. Not all gutter cleaning businesses will tell you this. You may see your gutters overflowing on rainy days and assume the gutter is full of debris and it may simply be the drain hole is plugged.

Not everyone has a ladder or the desire to climb up to the roof to get a closer look, so people choose to hire a professional to clean their gutters out for them. When the person from the company arrives, they will calculate a value for cleaning your gutters out.

Buyer Beware!

This is where it is important for you to observe before making your decision to hire someone. Did the technician have a look inside the gutters to estimate whether they actually need a clean or if the drain hole is simply plugged? Did they grab a ladder and physically get above the gutter and maybe even taking a few pictures so you can see how dirty the gutters really are? Or, did they just look from the ground, took some estimated measurements and give you a quote?

You must be cautious and carefully observe who you choose to hire. There are many qualified, reputable companies that service, repair and clean gutters in the Fraser Valley of British Columbia. If the technician they send out doesn’t have a lot of experience in this field, you may not get an accurate representation of what is actually required.

Most people can sense when someone is trying to pull a fast one including you, so when people call a company for a gutter cleaning quote, most people go with your gut when they can sense a person is up front, communicates clearly, honestly, and professionally.
