Water Blasting or Softwashing?

Adam from

"Softwashing" is the most effective method of washing a house. It is gentle on the surface and actually kills the organic growth such as mould, algae and lichen. This means your house will stay cleaner for longer!

Take this Stucco cladding for example, a fragile surface that should not be water blasted. After a "Softwash" you can see that all the algae, lichen and moss has been removed leaving only the oxidation marks from the Aluminium window joinery.
The surface was not damaged, no paint was removed and the customer was left very happy.

Rubbish and recycling delays

Simone Borgstede from Wellington City Council

Due to a nationwide driver shortage, we’re still seeing some delays with our rubbish and recycling collections.

If rubbish or recycling has not been collected on your street on your normal collection day, please leave it out and it will be picked up the next day

Please note collections now start at 7am, so your rubbish and recycling may be picked up earlier than usual. Make sure you put everything out before 7am on the day of collection, or after 7pm the night before.

Thank you for your patience Pōneke 💛
