HOUSE WASH FAQs
Q. Why should we get our House Washed?

A3. Alternatively, if the property is ready for a paint, our soft hand wash services prior, will professionally prepare the dwelling perfectly – your painter will thank you!

Q. Will you strip the paint on the surfaces of my Dwelling / Property?
