Eventually, yes, but we make sure it is safe to do so! Before we begin washing an Auckland building, we inspect the property and what needs to be cleaned first.
If there is light to medium organic dirt and debris on the property, it is safe to be washed straight into the storm system. If the debris is particularly heavy, contains paint flakes and other non-eco-friendly matter, we will block the storm drains off first before beginning so that we can filter the non-eco matter out of the dirty water before allowing it to run into the stormwater system.

We provide these services to adhere to those warranties! Our Auckland building washing process and products are approved by all the markets leading paint manufacturers to keep your warranty valid.
Our experts come from lengthy experience dealing with weather tightness in Auckland properties. Weather tightness just means that all points of your building are safe from the external elements and the inside of your property is dry – and stays dry. Before we begin an Auckland building washing service, we need to check that us spraying water and products onto your building is not going to seep through any cracks in the weather tightness.
If there is weakness in your exterior cladding or other points of construction, then your property is at risk of weather damage, and water damage from being washed.
