Cleaning Pool Fences and Glass Balustrade

Cleaning Pool Fences and Glass Balustrade

If you have a pool or balcony then you are certainly aware of the safety issues regarding fencing and balustrades. Glass has become a popular option when it comes to constructing safety barriers and when they are clean, they look fantastic.

Unfortunately due to their exposure to both sides of the glass to the weather, they will get dirtier faster than regular glass. Constant attention from insects, grass cuttings and leaves are all common sights on this type of glass making cleaning often more important.

We have two methods for cleaning this type of glass, one being the traditional squeegee. This is time consuming but gets great results. It requires

Cleaned Pool Fence Glass

scrubbing and squeegeeing of each section of glass then wiping of the ledges and brackets.

The most cost efficient and time efficient is using our water fed pole and deionized water system. We are able to scrub and rinse the glass in one motion, and then our 100% purified water system will dry completely clear, leaving the glass spot free, clean and shining.

The other important thing to note is that pool fencing is often located close to sprinkler systems and pool chemicals, which if they are regularly exposed to cause staining or water damage on your glass. Regular cleaning helps prevent this from occurring.

Autumn is here, time to clean your gutters!

Autumn is here, time to clean your gutters!

Melbourne is coming off our wettest summer on record, I’m sure we all experienced the incredible deluge hit in early February. Melbourne for once had more water than we knew what to do with, and most of it was trying to flow down cluttered and block guttering. For those lucky, the water would eventually push past blockages and go down the drain. Unfortunately, many weren’t and the water backed up then went into the roof’s of many homes and businesses across the city.

With Autumn upon us a fresh batch of leaves and twigs are falling from deciduous trees and clogging up gutters. If you haven’t had your gutters cleaned out recently chances are they are already full. It is blocked gutters and downpipes that lead to most of the water not properly flowing from your roof and instead backing up and causing damage.

Gutter Litter

Could this be in your gutter?

Just today I was cleaning the gutters of a small inner city house that was surrounded by Elm trees. They hadn’t had the gutters cleaned in over a year and they were completely full of leaves and dirt. As you can see from the picture I pulled an amazing amount of litter from a 10m stretch of guttering. By the time I had finished the job the pile had more than doubled, I was finding large sticks, grass, dirt even pieces of slate from a neighbour’s roof.

If you’re thinking of doing them yourself, make sure you take all the proper and necessary safety precautions before even climbing a ladder. Many ladder falls result in serious injury and making sure you are working in a safe manner is as important as doing a good job. Even if you have the slightest concern doing them yourself, call a professional. They will come around and do it for you. All you have to do is sit back and relax.
