Buildings should ideally be washed every 2 years. Repainted every 8 to 10 years.

Carparking Areas - Larger Buildings

Soft Wash Services -

Car parking areas in larger buildings are an area that ids often disregarded in the overall maintenance of a property, accumulated dust on underslung fixtures such as pipes and ducting rarely get washed. Concrete flooring details often are soiled, unsealed concrete generates dust, brake dust from cars etc' needs to be properly cleaned to provide a reasonalbe ammenity. Also many underground carparks have pit drains that contain accumulated debris that may inturn restrict proper drainage or water run off. car parking areas and loading docks need to be cleaned in a timely manner.

Soft wash of building elements is focused on maintaining building material and finishes to increase durability whilst also increasing the appearance of building elements. This requires scrubbing, washing and a degree of polishing of the elements exposed surfaces.

Having worked in the building industry in Australia and abroad since 1977, I have accumulated a unique skill set over many years. This inturn has given me an insite as to the importance of maintaining building elements.

Maintenance: Maintenance is key to durability of buildings, is key to health & wellbeing of building occupants, a good soft wash rejuvenates building elements.

Pest Control has been a life long passion, although my vehicle is well equipped to deal with any pest control matter deemed necessary, the ability to thoroughly clean the kitchen, undertake dewebbing, clean rodent run markings, clean flooring/drains for more effective pest control, termite control or inspections can no longer be undertaken. Call Steve for more detail.

SoftWash - Washing of building elements without use of high pressure washer, use of a high pressure washers can be very destructive to building elements, a soft wash not only improves the appearance of a building, but also increases the durability of the building elements, pest control treatments are more effective when combined with soft wash.

Hard Floor Cleaning - A difficult task is to properly clean hard flooring. Breaking through oily residues for example in food preperation areas, commercial toilet floors or cleaning a well worn floor has been  challenging, to say the least, Washing a floor properly improves health and ammenity whilst also improving the floors visual appeal.


Property Rejuvination

Elements of buildings can include car parks, rubbish rooms, service areas, ventilation systems to name a few, all these details need timely maintenance. Accumulation of brake dust in a carpark can potentially present a health hazard, concrete dust can contain silica, airbourne concrete dust could potentailly contribute to the likes of silicoses. As a building owner or manager these are areas that may be a concern in the long run.

Where commercial carp parks or rubbish room areas have been exposed to rodent activity, it is important to have these areas properly cleaned to remove rodent runs from walls and rodent urine trails, rodents will typically follow existing rodent trails to find food sources, proper cleaning of the histroy of rodents significantly reduces rodent activity, makes any control measures of rodents such as baiting a lot more effective.

Stainless Steel - Most grades of stainless steel are prone to surface discolouration or corrosion over time, tea stains and mild surface rust together with grime build up cause the chromium in stainless steel to loose it's active layer, the stainless steel becomes active. I have a method I use to repassivate the stainless steel, effectively reoxidising the chromium in stainless to form the desired protective layer.

Colorbond Maintenance- Colorbond is a material widely used in buildings, external metal details need ongoing periodic maintenance. Colorbond should be washed with a mild soap then rinsed with water every 6 months according to Bluescope Steel Technical Bulletin 4 for Colorbond, if you want to mantain your colorbond details, I have the ability to provide a soft wash service that will increase the durability of your external colorbond details. Well maintained Colorbond can look good for many years when maintained properly.

Rejuvination - A proper wash & scrub of building elements generally restores components, my rejuvenation works make a huge difference, can be much cheaper than conventional renovation, also more environmentally friendly as materials that last longer generally do not need to be replaced, replacement generally creates debris/waste that inturn commonly goes into landfill.
