7 Stubborn Stains That High Pressure Cleaning Can Remove From Residential Properties

7 Stubborn Stains That High Pressure Cleaning Can Remove From Residential Properties

If you have recently discovered that the exterior of your home and the outside surfaces of your property have more than their fair share of stains, and worse they are stains that are not easily removed, then it may be time to call in a high pressure cleaning company to remove them. Alternatively, you could hire a high pressure washer and remove the stains yourself, but be aware this requires plenty of preparation and no small amount of effort on your part.

Whichever way you decide, high pressure cleaning is the ideal way to get rid of marks, stains, and other blights on the exterior of your home, including the walls, roof, pathways, and driveway. A bucket of water and some dish soap will most definitely not be able to deal with these. Instead, it will require the powerful jets of water that high pressure cleaning utilises. As for the specific stains that high pressure cleaning can deal with, below are seven of the most common.

#1 – Chewing Gum

Regardless of whether you think chewing gum is a bad habit or not, what most certainly is bad is it being dropped on the ground. There it hardens, can be stood on, and sticks rigidly to the hard surface below making it even more difficult to remove, which is why high pressure cleaning is necessary.

What Not to do When Packing your Household Goods

Not everyone is an expert when it comes to knowing what to do when you’re moving house or moving your business. After all, moving house is hopefully one of those times in your life that doesn’t happen often, and if you’re an expert, it means you’ve relocated more than you wish to admit. However, even though you’re not an expert, or you plan on leaving the logistics to professional removalists, it’s helpful to know what not to do when you’re planning on making a big move. Chances are, being aware of those points can help the process go so much smoother.

Don’t leave change of address to the last minute

When you plan on changing your address, it’s helpful to tell your postal service, utility provider, children’s schools, doctors, vets, and the like, well in advance. It can be easy to believe this can be sorted upon arrival, but in the meantime, you might miss out on important mail, or even bills that need to be paid immediately. The fallout from an overdue or unreceived bill payment can be significant, as it may affect your credit score.

Choosing Hardwood Flooring Over Carpet

In the midst of a house renovation you might have to make a consideration between laying carpet or installing timber flooring. Hardwood flooring has quite a few more positives than negatives when you start comparing it with carpet. Here are a few of the points to consider when trying to make that choice.

Timber Flooring is Modern Looking

You look at today’s innovative building designs. They are trending towards clean lines, simplicity, and that catch word ‘minimalism’. With a timber floor you get a blank canvas on which to express your personality. Carpet is kind of 70’s. It looked great in your parents’ house, in the lounge room, but it’s time your home zoomed into the 21st Century.


Commercial cleaner advise that you can easily clean a wooden floor with a sweep and a vacuum. Follow that up with a warm water mop to clean the surface and you’re good to go. The carpets will require a vacuum and more than likely a steam clean every few months from a carpet cleaning service, especially if you have pets and kids. Stubborn stains in carpet can be rather hard to remove. There are no stains on a timber floor (unless you spill acid and it eats into the wood). Marks from high heels can be repaired although some say it adds character. Scratch marks on timber floors are usually sustained by the coating rather than by the wood itself and easily fixed with a quick sanding.

The Easiest Way Ever to Move into Your New Home

Most people dread the thought of moving, especially if they have lived in the same house for many years and accumulated a lot of goods. Moving makes you take stock of all those old possessions you don’t really want, but can’t bear to throw out. Also removalists like Brilliance say that people tend to develop an emotional attachment to things because of the memories they evoke. However, sometimes it is essential to get rid of old stuff you don’t use and none of the family wants.

Moving made easy

In actual fact, the easiest way ever to move is to have your professional removalists do all the packing and unpacking at the other end. That way you only have to pack a few clothes and stay at a motel until the job is done. However, if you are not to cram your home with the same old goods and chattels that you don’t really want or need, you’ll still have to sort out your ‘stuff’, placing everything you don’t want to take into another pile to get rid of.

6 Tips To Care for Your Carpet

Carpet is the floor covering of choice for many people due to its warmth, softness underfoot and insulation from the clattering noise of footsteps. Most carpets offer value, durability, and eye appeal in the home. The one disadvantage is that it is impossible to wash them – at least frequently since they take so long to dry. Instead, other means of carpet cleaning should be undertaken. Your choice of carpet care and professional carpet cleaner will depend on the type of carpet you have and the cause of the dirt or stain.

  1. Vacuuming is one of the best ways to clean your carpet. A good vacuum cleaner can suck most of the loose dirt, pet hairs and dander, pollen and dust from the carpet and make it almost like new again. But not all vacuum cleaners do an excellent job on the carpet areas in the home because the suction is not strong enough, especially on carpet with a deep pile.
  2. Smelly carpets can be cleaned by sprinkling powder or spraying with a special foam before vacuuming. Note: the foam requires time to dry before being vacuumed off.
  3. Sweeping with a straw broom or using a dustpan and brush can remove small areas of loose dirt or dry spills, especially on a carpet with short or no pile.
  1. Mopping with a cloth must be done if you spill something wet onto the carpet, significantly if it will stain—wine, coffee, and tea must be mopped up immediately. Use a dry cloth first and press down over the stain to absorb as much moisture as possible. Then use a damp cloth and wipe from the edges of the stain to the centre so it does not spread. Do not scrub at the stain, and we recommend contacting a professional.

Who Will Erect Your Scaffolding?

There are many uses for scaffolding in the building and other sectors. In most cases, scaffolding is hired rather than a company owning their own. That way they avoid the necessity of finding storage for when it is not in use, finding or owning transport to carry it to and from various worksites and employing staff to erect it. That said, if a company hires out scaffold but does not supply staff to erect it, who will you get to erect it on your worksite?

If you want to maintain safety on the building site, those who erect scaffolding should be fully trained to do so. If your own employees are going to be given that job, it is essential that they have access to and undergo the training necessary to become competent scaffolders. The risk of fatal injury is too high to allow an untrained person to simply read a manual and then go ahead and erect the scaffolding structure for your building or any other project.

5 Ways to Make Your Kitchen User Friendly

Once, very little consideration was given to making the kitchen user friendly. It was often a dark, unattractive place to be with just a tiny window to let in light and air.  While many people may have happy memories of sitting at a large kitchen table while Mum prepared dinner on the other end, this was not really the best way to deal with all the preparation that needed to be done.

Happily, times have changed considerably and there are many highly experienced cabinet makers that can design and build kitchens that are trendy and user friendly. Here are 5 easy ways to make your kitchen more user friendly.

  1. The Triangle

When you are cooking there are three main points that you have to reach; the refrigerator, the stove and the pantry. Keeping these areas in a rough triangle will make your food creation much more efficient as well as easier.  If your kitchen does not have a triangle of these three items it may be possible to move the refrigerator or the stove to make things easier. Or depending on how your kitchen is designed, you could change the position of the pantry – or place the foods that are used more often into a different cabinet.
