Feeling the pressure to clean up your driveway, footpaths, and surfaces? Your building exterior should put your best foot forward, whether it’s for guests to your home or customers for your business. Yet many owners let this aspect go to the wayside until the mould and dirt build up.
After all, won’t the rain just wash it away? (Hint: Nope). Moss and grime can latch on to surfaces like roofing, siding, driveways, and footpaths, making it hard for Mother Nature to clear it all away for you. And keep in mind – this accumulation is not just an eyesore. It can make surfaces treacherous to walk on or cause issues with allergens. No one wants that.
No one wants to spend their time pressure cleaning in Gold Coast either – except for the team at Dirty Deeds Cleaning Company. We find the job satisfying and straightforward for our trained professionals. There’s nothing we like to see more than eliminating all of the filth on a structure while putting a smile on our customers’ faces.
Turn to Dirty Deeds to take your exterior surfaces from slimy to spectacular. We have all of the equipment and experience to get the job done efficiently without damaging your property. And you don’t pay a dollar unless you’re completely satisfied with our work.
No contracts. No gimmicks. No shortcuts.
There’s no one-size-fits-all answer to this, but generally, if you can see it from a bit of a distance, it’s high time for the cleaning.
Keeping your South-East Queensland home or business exterior clean isn’t just about how great it should look. It’s also about making sure that the integrity of the exterior’s materials stand up to time, the elements, and whatever it is that’s growing on it. Whether you’re looking to clean the entrance to your Queensland gym or restore the shine to your industrial surfaces, we’ve got the tools, team, and talent to help.
Vinyl, composite, and metal roofing or siding can benefit from being pressure washed at least once a year. This will lift off any sediment that can discolour the exterior and preserve the protective nature of the materials. Concrete, asphalt, and paver surfaces should also be cleaned once a year to remove everything from tyre tracks to oil stains.
Well, how big is the surface area that needs a clean up?
The time it takes (and the cost, more on that below) mainly depends on the number of square metres that have to be cleaned. These measurements should be calculated as part of any estimate.
As a baseline, it can take up to 2 hours to clean the exterior of an average 185m2 house. A standard two-car driveway, on average 30m2, can take an hour. These times will only increase if the surfaces are quite filthy, like an oil-stained driveway, or hard to reach, like the second storey of a home. Commercial businesses can take a day or more to completely clean, again depending on how large the exterior is and whether sidewalks or other pathways are included.
Considering going the DIY route with a trusty garden hose? You can give it a try, but you might find the results lacking. At most, you’ll wet everything down and take off a top layer of dirt. It’s a great start! But it isn’t going to give you results.
Here’s just a small list of what pressure cleaning can get rid of:
Just like estimating how long the job will take, quoting the price depends on the size of the job and the ease of accessibility. The cost will also cover time for the cleaning crew to set up and break down all of their equipment, which can take up to an hour in total.
Another factor to consider is whether detergents or other additives need to be used. This will drive up the cost but can also guarantee that the clean will be effective the first time around.
The average home will cost between $300 to $400 to pressure clean, compared to $150 to $175 for a driveway. Some companies will offer discounts if you have more than one service completed in a visit. You’ll want to get an exact quote for your building or surface, but you can use the table below as a guide for budgeting.
You could also try renting the equipment and spending your weekend fighting grime. But these costs can add up, and you can actually get seriously injured operating a pressure washer if you’re not experienced with one.
And remember that pricing table above? It can cost you between $150 to $200 a day just to rent a pressure cleaning machine. Then you have to do the actual work.
A professional service will be able to do the entire job in much less time than you ever would. They’ll not only have all of the right equipment, but they’ll also be able to send out as many people as it takes to get the project done in a reasonable time frame. What would take you all of Saturday (and into Sunday) could be done in just a few hours if you call a professional cleaning service.
Absolutely! Pressure washing takes a careful, experienced hand to ensure that no damage is done to your property. Too close up or too rigorous washing can destroy finishes and take off more than just the layers of dirt and grime that are caked on.
The actual pressure behind the washing is also variable, and an experienced cleaning service will understand which materials or structures can withstand stronger pressure and which need to take it a bit easier. For example, pressure washing pavers is a great way to bring them back to their original color. But using less pressure will ensure that the fill dirt that locks the pavers together will not come loose, affecting the integrity of your patio.
So how do you make sure you choose the right service? Start with looking at how long they have been in business and how many years of experience they have. Then go explore their reviews. Pressure washing gone wrong, either ineffective or damaging, is likely to draw customer complaints that are shared online. You can also ask the company you’re considering for references that you can speak with. All of this can give you greater confidence that the job will be done right the first time.
At least, when it comes to contracts. We bill job to job, so we’re always incentivized to do our absolutely best, and you never feel trapped in an agreement. Of course, we bring the right equipment to get the actual pressure cleaning on the Gold Coast done right.
