Outdoor Belongings

Clear the area around your home of any outdoor furniture such as chairs and tables, decorations like wind chimes or hanging plants, potted plants, or other items that could obstruct the exterior cleaning process. Consider covering sensitive plants or garden beds with plastic sheeting to protect them from excessive water exposure.

Windows and Doors

Ensure all windows and doors are tightly shut to prevent water from entering your home during cleaning. If any windows or doors are particularly susceptible to leaks, consider sealing them with plastic sheeting or waterproof tape as an extra precaution.

Electrical Fixtures, Outlets, and Power Sources

Our experts will use waterproof tape before exterior cleaning to protect electrical outlets, doorbells, and other electrical components from water exposure during the cleaning. Relocating any movable electrical sources away from the job site before we arrive is always a good idea!


Consider trimming overhanging branches, bushes, or vines near your home to provide clear access for exterior cleaning. Additionally, move any lawn ornaments or decorations that could obstruct the cleaning process.


Move any vehicles away from the driveway before the job in order to provide full access for our experts and machinery.
