Fences in Sydney are constructed from many types of material, the most common boundary fence details are either colorbond or timber, soft wash of fencing is beneficial with colorbond to reduce fungal growth that inturn promotes pests such as spiders and can contribute to a rapid deterioration of the colorbond. Timber fences also should be soft washed in a timely manner to reduce fungal or moss growth that can retain moisture on the timbers leading to premature decay of the timber fance details.
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.
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.
Colorbond is a building material that needs to be washed in timely manner, firstly to retain the finishes but most imoprotantly to prolong the durability of the colorbond materials.
Metal colorbond fences can now be washed by means of a soft wash using soap and a bristled brush to remove mould or fungi or grime that forms on the colorbond over time.
I have added this video of a metal roof soft wash I have done in the past as an example of some of my cleaning methods.
People frequently have the car washed, rarely do poeple have the homes they live in washed.
