If you live in the Vancouver area of BC, Canada, you know how dirty buildings get over time (especially on the North side). And as we all know you only get one chance to give a good first impression. Our homes and businesses always tell a story. What does our business/home say to the public?
Is Your Building Looking Dirty?
Due to the rain and overcast green and black algae as well as moss can rapidly grow out of control on many buildings if you don’t have a schedule for having it cleaned regularly every few years.
Building Types & Exterior Types
There are many types of buildings we clean in lower mainland, British Columbia. They can include commercial concrete buildings, townhouse/condo complexes, apartment buildings, and residential homes.
There are also many types of building exteriors that we clean in Greater Vancouver, BC. They can include vinyl, aluminum, and wood siding. At times even brick, stucco, and concrete exteriors can use a clean.
Local businesses may have glass canopies and awnings that accumulate dirt and spores causing them to become black & filthy over the years if left to the elements. This can potentially cause customers to find cleaner facilities to do business.
A dirty exterior really becomes evident when the windows need a good clean. You may find yourself looking more at the dirt on the glass than the view beyond the dirty glass. When you find this happening, you know it’s time to have your building washed.
Our Cleaning Methods
At Langley Window Cleaning our core service is cleaning windows by squeegee and we also offer the latest in window washing technology. For this method we utilize a carbon fibre water-fed pole and soft-bristle brush system.
Here is a brief demonstration of our system in action at Lynn Valley library in North Vancouver:
Cleaning commercial windows as well as high condominium windows using this system becomes very safe since we can safely work with our feet on the ground. Our lightweight poles can safely reach up to 5-stories vertically and they do a great job because we know how to use them to effectively clean windows.
Here is another demonstration of us cleaning 5-story condo windows in Abbotsford:
The added bonus is we can also safely wash vinyl siding up to 50 feet vertically with this system. The soft brush doesn’t cause any damage to the siding because it gently washes and rinses as we clean.
We have been using this system for many years now and we find our customers prefer their siding to be cleaned by brush. Check out some customer testimonials here.
Another bonus is when people hire us to clean their gutters, windows, and siding, we can do this all in one shot with the water fed pole and brush system. This can save you a lot of money when having it all done at the same time rather than hiring multiple companies to come do separate services at different times.
Our goal is to be your one stop shop for cleaning building exteriors. Whether it’s a commercial or residential application you can feel safe and reassured knowing your building is in good hands by fully insured professionals.

We Live in a Rain Forest
If you live in Greater Vancouver area, you know how much it rains here and what a favorable environment we have for moss growth; especially on the north side of a roof!
We are always working on improving our removal process so as to do no harm to your roof. In fact, having it removed properly can extend the life of your roof.
Depending on your location, your house may be a little more prone to moss growth, especially if you have trees nearby. It’s best to not let it get too out of hand, so we recommend having your roof treated once a year to keep things under control.
In really extreme cases, we can also gently clean roofs as shown in the above video. We can access most gentle pitched roofs. We will not climb on steep pitch roofs. We will utilize fall arrest harnesses and safety lines where necessary for our safety.
If you have problems with moss growth on the roof of your house, and you would rather not risk climbing up and tackling it yourself, you can always fill in a quote request to get a free estimate delivered to your inbox.
By having moss removed from your roof, you may save the thousands of dollars it would cost to have your roof replaced. You can save money by allowing us to clean the moss of your roof. Why not give us a call today?
Vinyl siding washing can do wonders for beautifying your home.
If you live in lower mainland, British Columbia, then you especially know what I mean. The amount of yearly rainfall here is significant and can cause algae and moss overgrowth on virtually every object.
In order to keep a home looking and feeling good, it is a good idea to have your siding washed every 2-3 years, otherwise it can become pretty green and be on its way back to nature.
Here is an example of a home before being washed in South Langley Aldergrove:
In this picture the right side has been washed for a comparison:
As you can see, it can make a huge difference when we wash your siding for you. You can relax, put your feet up and let us do the hard work knowing that we will be careful and do a great job of beautifying your home environment.
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.
