Now that winter is finally behind us it’s time to step outside and see what toll the dreary season has taken on your house. Make any repairs that need attention and give the whole outside a good spring clean.

But where should you start? With our steps to exterior cleaning you will wash away winter, getting your house fresh and summer-ready.

Start at the top with roof cleaning

Moss and debris on the roof make a house look unkempt but can also compromise the actual structure itself. You can usually see from the ground if a roof is suffering, but it can be tricky to really know what condition your roof is in unless you get up there and have a look.*

With winter well out of the way, it’s time to check on the status of your roof, give it a clean and carry out any maintenance that’s needed. Your roof will last longer and look refreshed all in one go.

*Any roof cleaning or maintenance at height can be dangerous and are tasks that we would only recommend if you are confident and have the proper equipment.

We offer roof cleaning services in Southampton and the area as one of our popular exterior house cleaning services and can often work from the ground, eliminating the need for ladders or scaffolding. Get in touch to arrange a free roof inspection today.

Gutter cleaning

We have gutters to ensure rainwater doesn’t cause damage to our houses. Without them, water not only runs down external walls making them dirty, but pools and flows on the ground gradually eroding soil and damaging foundations.

Over winter in particular gutters become clogged with leaves, moss and debris. This means they leak or overflow which can cause all the same problems as if they weren’t there at all.

It’s a really good idea to inspect, clean and maintain your gutters annually and now is the perfect time to tackle this particular exterior cleaning task.  

If you decide to call in the professionals, we are here to help. Our first step is to offer a full camera inspection and detailed reporting. Our experienced team then utilise the latest Sky Vac gutter technology to clear blockages and clean your gutters prior to any necessary repairs.

Most properties’ gutters can be cleaned from ground level which is quicker and safer than the alternative, without compromising on results. However, we also hold various high level access certificates meaning we can get to gutters no matter how high or awkwardly situated.

Windows and walls

It’s amazing how grimy a house can get without you really realising it. Cleaning the exterior windows and walls can be like waving a magic wand: bringing new life to your home after the onslaught of winter weather.  

After you’ve finished the exterior cleaning it’s possible that your walls would also benefit from a fresh coat of paint. Again, now is the perfect time for this outdoor maintenance task.  

Driveway cleaning

Similar to the effect of cleaning your walls, giving your driveway a really good wash can make a huge difference to the appearance of your whole property. Pressure washing your driveway will remove moss, algae and grime and stop your driveway from becoming slippery in wet weather.
