Complex External Cleaning & Maintenance interviewed by: Bulimba Business
In 2007, John Hiatt and Tania Burchill from Comple Extex External Cleaning & Maintenance started washing houses, the old school way by hand. Now they’re at the helm of a specialist contracting company, with over 100+ contractors providing quality exterior cleaning services to real estates, residential home owners, commercial and industrial property owners all over Australia. Bulimba Business decided to put them to the test by providing them with a particularly dusty house complete with chicken poop in the interest of providing our readers with a ‘real life’ review. They squeezed a 10-minute chat with BB into their brief coffee break.
BB: Give me one good reason why I shouldn’t wash my own house with one of those high-pressure, jet-powered water blasters?
John: Because you’ll ruin your paint work or worse flood your doors or windows. Window and door seals weren’t designed to have 2000+ PSI of water blasted directly at them. It just sounds messy, if you don't know what you are doing you can make a real mess that will be costly to repair any damage.
Tania: High-pressure cleaners are awesome for driveways, paving, concrete etc, but your house deserves a nice gentle wash, not a supersonic blast.
BB: Hmmm, I don’t fancy the house getting damaged or flooded (again). Tell me more about this nice gentle wash.
John: We do the ENTIRE house, gutter to ground by hand, using our soft-broom washing technique. The advantage of hand-washing is that we can see what we’re dealing with – mould, dust, dirt, etc. Suburbs close to the flight path get some jet fuel residue too. It all takes its toll on your paintwork.
Tania: It’s so dry at the moment, people are really noticing the dirt and dust build-up.
BB: Hand-washing must take ages….
John: It depends how big your house is. We’ll quote your home via google maps or come out to site & look at the house and provide a suitable price for what is needed. We can wash the roof, clean the solar panels, clear-out the gutters and get your driveway looking like new too.
BB: Solar panels? I didn’t know I needed to wash them?
John:You won’t be generating the maximum amount of solar power if your panels are covered in bird droppings, mould, dust or jet fuel! Squeaky clean panels can increase your electricity generation by up to 30%. Now is the perfect time to clean them.
BB: You two are experts!
John: We’ve been doing this for a long time. That’s why we’re the cleaning company of choice for Australia's prestige real estate companies. When it comes to increasing the value of a property, the simplest, most affordable thing you can do is get it looking sparkling clean.
