Your property is your castle. It protects you on the inside from all of the elements outside — but in order to keep doing its job, your property exterior needs protecting too. Whether it’s clogged gutters or green stuff growing on your roof and the side of your home, these things need to be sorted so that your home or commercial property is in shipshape condition.
At Fastdry Services, we provide specialized gutter vacuuming, using a system unlike any other out there — and it stops you from having to get up on a ladder to try and clean your gutters out. We also provide water blasting for your home exterior, effective roof cleaning and sparkling window cleaning. Take a look here to see what our customers are saying about us!
Regular gutter cleaning is essential to help maintain your property. With clear gutters, water can flow freely. If your gutters are clogged and chocked full of leaves, twigs, dirt, and other debris, then this water will no longer be able to drain easily.
At Fastdry Services, we use an advanced, custom-built gutter vacuuming system that works in virtually all weathers (with the exception of freezing conditions!). Our in-house built gutter cleaning system allows us to reach up to 10 metres from the ground to vacuum debris, completely removing it from your gutters. It has the ability to flush water along your gutters and recover it with our vacuum instead of simply pushing it down your downpipes. This helps clear even more debris from all of the nooks and crannies!

Eliminate the risk of leaks — When waste builds up in your gutters excess water pools. Pooling water increases the likelihood of water leaking into your home via your roof causing costly damage to ceilings, walls and your home’s foundation.
Maintain the longevity of your roof — In Southland it is particularly important to keep your gutters clean so that ice, as well as water, can flow freely. In the colder months, clogged gutters can trap heavy pieces of ice placing excess stress on your roof.
Increase aesthetic appeal — Clear gutters safeguard your fascia. Plus the surfaces below your guttering, such as decking, patios and courtyards are protected from dirty water stains. Clear gutters, with clean exteriors, contribute enormously to the aesthetic appeal of your home.
A cost-effective method of clearing your gutters without risking a fall — We can reach up to 10 metres from the safety of the ground and if we do have to get up higher, our technicians are trained and experienced to do so. It means you can stay safe no matter what.
No need to disconnect your gutters — To flush as much as possible away from your gutters — we can simply position our vacuum between the incoming stream of debris-laden water and your downpipe to prevent virtually anything being pushed into your downpipes which may cause blockages.
Do you remember the last time your house exterior was cleaned? If not, don’t worry! But that probably means it is likely overdue. A clean home exterior not only looks aesthetically pleasing but it also helps to maintain a clean environment around your home. To ensure optimum results, we wouldn’t recommend simply aiming a pressure washer at your siding — this could cause more damage than good if done incorrectly.
At Fastdry Services, we use low-pressure exterior house washing that will leave your Southland property looking like-new! We apply our biodegradable detergents first to loosen the dirt, moss, mould, and algae. Next we use a high volume rinse to wash it all away. Although we do use a water blaster, the pressure is dialled right back. It is the sheer volume of water, and not high pressure, that allows for a very thorough clean. For a longer-lasting clean we can apply a biocidal treatment to keep the moss, mould, and algae away for an extended period of time.
Along with our water blasting for your home siding, we also get rid of built-up grime, mould and stubborn debris from other surfaces around your property including your cladding, decking, fencing, driveway, pathway, patio, carport or farm buildings. This way, your home will be the best looking on your street!
At Fastdry Services, we carry Height Safety certifications which are important because it allows us to safely use ropes and harnesses to access roofs, particularly for commercial work. We are also EWP (Elevated Work Platform) certified so we can operate these where required to safely access your project.
It is easy for mould, moss, algae and lichen to rampantly grow on many exterior surfaces, especially in Southland’s damp weather conditions. Not only is mould unattractive to look at, but its slippery presence can make walking on it hazardous.
If you have mould or lichen growing on your roof, high-pressure water blasting isn’t an effective treatment. Simply blasting off the mould may remove it in the short-term, but it doesn’t do anything to kill it off. This means the moss will simply and quickly return. Certain types of roofing can be damaged by high-pressure water blasting. For example, the granular coatings on shingle roofs can be literally blasted away degrading its appearance and longevity.
If you have mould, moss, algae or lichen growing on an exterior surface, Fastdry Services provides a specialised mould treatment that kills all the spores and safely and efficiently cleans your roof over time. The moss / mould treatment we use is applied with a low-pressure application to your roof then the active ingredient reacts quickly to kill the infestation and sanitize the surface. Any dead moss, mould, algae or lichen will simply fall away over time. If you collect drinking water from your roof it will need to be disconnected for 2-3 decent periods of rain to flush away any residual treatment.

Your windows are the eyes of your property. You wouldn’t leave your foggy glasses on without cleaning them — and your windows should be no different.
The team at Fastdry Services uses a water-fed pole system that safeguards your plants, so there is no need to place a ladder in your garden to try and reach your windows. We can reach up to three storeys high. We have found that hot water loosens the dirt on your windows, allowing debris to fall away from the nooks and crannies of window frames. Water used for cleaning your exterior windows has been purified through reverse osmosis and de-ionisation. This means that all the chemicals and contaminants have been stripped out of the water so that nothing is left to stick to the glass. And the results? A beautiful spot-free and streak-free finish with glass that remains cleaner for longer.
