We don't use high pressure on paint work and walls as it is too harsh!
House Washing Australia believes the use of high pressure cleaners on the walls and paint work of your home can result in more harm than good. This is why we only use high pressure cleaners on roofs, cement and other hard surfaces around your home.
The house washing itself is down to good old fashioned hard work, using cleaning solutions and a soft broom to deliver a thorough, but gentle clean to the walls and paintwork of your home.
Our cleaning solution is a blend of plant derived detergents and diluted bleach; it is designed not only to clean but to deter future mildew growth. The solution breaks down carbon based materials that build up over time, on and around your property making it damp, dirty and mouldy.
Paint companies are now starting to endorse our cleaning services, as it preserves the life of your paint.
We offer a FREE Mould and Spider Treatment with all external house washing, which lasts for up to twelve months. Our cleaning solution sanitises all surfaces and kills microscopic mould spores, which is essential for hygiene and beneficial to asthmatics.
Whether it’s a pre-sale clean, general upkeep or that special occasion, House Washing Australia are your Brisbane House Washing Specialists!
Upon booking with us, we will send you our “House Washing Preparation” information, which explains everything you need to know to protect your property before our arrival.
We can send you an annual “it’s time for your external cleaning” reminder, so you don’t need to worry. It’s as easy as “yes please” or “opt out”
The cleaning solution is sprayed onto all surfaces, from the external of the gutters down to the ground of your house, where it begins to emulsify the build-up of grime, killing mould, mildew and soften cobwebs, making them easier to remove.
Where necessary, surfaces are scrubbed with soft brushes to remove any stubborn stains or spots. Windows and screens are also scrubbed.
Surfaces are then rinsed off, removing any excess dirt, grime, wasp nests and animal droppings. Once your house wash is complete you will be the envy of all your neighbours.
Please note: There may be some minor irremovable marks and stains.
We conduct House Washing services throughout South East QLD. Whether you need House Washing North, South, East or West of Brisbane or House Washing on the Gold Coast or Sunshine Coast, we can help you with your external house cleaning needs.
They may do! To protect them you will need to:
We recommend that external house washing be performed annually. This does however, depend on the amount of sunlight your house gets, if the property is in a damp or built up area, or has a lot of trees in close proximity to your house.
House Washing in Brisbane for example should be done yearly without question due to the high humidity causing high mould growth.
Having your house washed regularly is the best thing for allergies. Our cleaning solution kills mould and mildew that may cause allergy flare ups.
High pressure cleaning on your walls and paint is too harsh! No high pressure should ever be applied to the surface of your house because it is too harsh on the paint and wood, not to mention that it will force water into places we don’t want it to go.
Think of it like, if you only hosed your car rather than scrubbed it! – Physical contact is better. Using high pressure alone does not do as good a job as using the cleaning solution nor does it remove spider webs – it can simply spread them. Also high pressure cleaning will not remove mould spores entirely, it can leave remnants behind.
It must be stated that mould is the key contributor to paint “failing” as the spores get under the paint surface and continue to grow until eventually popping off the paint and causing it to crack, lift and ultimately fall away from the surface.
If you do not remove the mould before re-painting you are dramatically reducing the life of your new paint job. Even sanding the house will not remove all the mould spores. Our cleaning solution will kill mould and prepare the surface for painting, therefore helping to prolong the life of the paint.
Quite often once our customers have undergone a house wash treatment they end up cancelling their painter due to the dramatic improvement in colour and brightness – up to three times brighter! This occurs because microscopic mould spores are removed from the paint during our clean.

It is important to understand that each house is different, which is why we measure the perimeter of your property to ensure we have incorporated everything you need for your individual property.
If your house is architecturally designed, multi-level or above average size or height, additional charges will apply and a site visit to quote may be required.
The average perimeter house measurement is around 55 lineal meters.
The average three bedroom home requires 250 litres of water to wash.
No-one needs to be home when the cleaning is taking place, as long as there is full perimeter access and the preparation is done.
However, it is strongly advised that if you know your property has leaks or potentially could leak, that you are present on the day to communicate with the technician.
Please inform us of the following:

Amazing! After a chemical wash and high pressure clean, the roof of my commercial property looked like new. Good rates – good service. Garry went out of his way to make sure we were happy. We'll have him back.
This is the third time we have used HWA and again were very happy with the results. It's amazing the difference a clean can make and all my dealings with HWA have been courteous & easy and the technicians are punctual, friendly and we would definitely recommend.
The recent high pressure cleaning that HWA did on our garden pavers and garden walls was a great job and could not have been done with more care. As our pavers are Himalayan sandstone, I get worried with the cleaning because they can chip easily but there was not a single chip out of them after this clean and they came up beautifully to top it off. Thanks guys for your attention, timeliness and professionalism.
I would highly recommend this company for a house clean. Our house looks like it's brand new. The price was reasonable and service outstanding. The communication was great and they ensured nothing was damaged around the house including the plants. Will definitely be a returning customer.
