Ultimate Spring Cleaning Checklist
White Knight Window
Spring is well and truly upon us, the days are getting longer and warmer and the Spring Cleaning has begun! Where to start? What to prioritise? We often get asked what should be done to get things Spring Ready and apart from Window Cleaning the following.
Starting with Pressure Washing the following areas will need attention, Pressure wash driveway, pathways, decks, and outdoors
Cleaning your driveway in Spring can make the front of your home look fresh and new again by removing the dirt that has accumulated during the Winter months. It also offers health benefits such as removing algae and moulds that may have built up It also reduces the risk of slippery surfaces and trip accidents. It also increases curb appeal and a good Pressure Clean freshens up the whole house!

Nothing screams ‘Spring’ more than clean, sparkling Windows letting in the warming rays! Removing the mould that may have accumulated on the interior glass due to condensation over the winter months. Cleaning away the dust and grime from the exterior lets in more natural light! This is our Speciality at White Knight Window Cleaning Cronulla!
Cleaning Fly Screens
Fly-screens can be good and serve their purpose by preventing unwanted visitors such as flies and insects from getting inside the house. Should your fly screens become dirty and dusty then it can block fresh air from entering inside the house at the same time covering your screens with dust and dirt, that eventually gets back onto the glass. We clean and Scrub all that dirt away, and if your not using certain Windows in the home we advise removing the screens from those Windows as without the screens they stay cleaner a lot longer!
Clean Down pipes and Gutters
Gutters and down-pipes clogged up because they are not cleaned regularly. It can cause a serious damage to your property since water won’t flow properly during heavy rains. Damp build up can cause health issues to your family because it can act as a breeding ground for mosquitos..
Check taps for leaks
Due to the current drought and Water restrictions that are subsequently in place we advise that you do a quick check of all your outdoor taps and hose fittings. If you find any leaks repair or replace the offending tap and help save some water! As they say ‘Every Drop Counts’
Re-oil the Deck, Timber Gates and any other external woodwork
If its that time again, then an oil of the deck early in the season to prevent any damaging UV Rays will help protect the deck and prevent any premature ageing and damage. Properly oiling the deck regularly keeps your deck looking great whilst protecting it from any damage. Oiling your deck and other timber will extend the lifespan of the wood because it helps protects it from water, mildew and mould that literally break down and damage the wood decreasing the lifespan.
Check for Wasp Nests
Over the past few weeks we have notice a dramatic increase in the number of wasp nests forming around windows! I am no pest expert but they seem to love shaded white painted areas and they are out in force! Trust me, and I am speaking from experience a wasp sting is VERY painful
Clean the Pool
Getting the pool ready for Summer is almost and Aussie ritual, regular maintenance, testing and keeping your pool clean can save a lot of expenses. inspect the pump, check for broken tiles, filter and other leaks, clean any leaves and debris. There are a lot of Local Companies that can help with this.
