FAQs: Exterior House Washing Brisbane

  • Why is house washing important?

    House washing is a vital first step before we can begin painting your house. Thoroughly cleaning the surface of your home will ensure that primers and paints can more effectively stick to the surface, ultimately resulting in a superior paint finish. Painting onto an unwashed, unprimed surface will create a streaky, unprofessional finish and erode the paint’s durability.

    Brisbane house washing is also an essential part of home maintenance and keeping your house in good condition. Over time, the exterior paint of your home is vulnerable to acid build up, mould growth and dry rot spore growth. Regular house washing will help keep these at bay and protect the interior of your home from their invasion.

  • What are the benefits of house washing?

    Regular house washing will help increase the life expectancy of your paint. How? It removes salt spray and acid buildup from your home’s walls, reducing rust that can damage your paint. House washing can also help prevent insects such as spiders. Finally, regular house washing in Brisbane is one of the most cost-effective ways to keep your house looking its best and increase its value.

  • What is Wilko Painting’s approach to house washing?

    At Wilko Painting, we take care to respect your home. Depending on your surface requirements, we offer a gentle yet thorough ‘soft pressure’ house washing process, or ‘high pressure’ house washing.

    Our soft pressure house washing process involves:

    • Handwashing your house to treat and kill mould spores and mildew
    • Removing dust and dirt from weatherboards, brick and concrete render with soft nylon brushes to prevent scratching of the painted surfaces
    • Washing from gutter or edge of the roof to the ground using speciality washing equipment for a professional finish

    Our high-pressure house washing process uses speciality high-pressure equipment to clean your home thoroughly.

  • How often should I have my house washed?

    We highly recommend annual house washing, as your exterior paint will last a lot longer, and your house will look better for it. Annual house washing is also a requirement of most paint manufacturers, who may not honour their warranty if regular maintenance has not been carried out.

  • Where do you offer your external house washing service?

    Whether you are seeking our house washing service as a standalone service or as part of a larger paint job, we are available to help throughout Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast and the Gold Coast.
