Exterior cleaning is one of the most consistently popular services we offer here at PC COM, with both residential and commercial customers from around East and West Sussex coming in throughout the year. We’re guessing it’s the same story for most cleaning companies in the area too, whether they operate in Brighton & Hove, Rottingdean or Southwick… and make no mistake, there are plenty of them around! 

For local homeowners and business owners, this wide range of professional exterior cleaning companies can be both a gift and a curse. On the one hand, you’ve obviously got plenty of options, which is always nice. On the other hand… there’s such a thing as toomuch choice, and it can be pretty hard knowing who to actually pick!

That’s why the PC COM team have put together this handy guide. We’ve identified the 4 most important things to look for in an exterior cleaning company in East & West Sussex, to help you get the best possible service. Without further ado, here they are!

  1. Experience

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again – there really is no substitute for experience. Picking a newer company might save you a few pounds, but we’d say the risks certainly outweigh this slight financial gain. 

In exterior cleaning as in other jobs, there’s a lot to be said for simply having a lot of repetitions in your chosen profession. Seasoned exterior cleaners are able to size up a job swiftly, achieve consistently better results, and – to put it not-so-delicately – are less likely to mess up! 

  • Versatility 

Let’s say that a Brighton-based exterior cleaning company has loads of experience cleaning offices. But if you own a restaurant… that doesn’t really help you! Likewise, even if a company has cleaned plenty of commercial properties, but very few houses, they’re probably not the smartest pick to clean your home!

This plays into the aforementioned importance of experience. You want a company that’s spent plenty of time cleaning both commercial and residential properties, of all shapes and sizes, and who will therefore be able to bring their experience and expertise to bear on your job too. 

  • Training

Every exterior cleaning company looks to bring in some new blood eventually, for perfectly understandable reasons. The way in which these new employees are brought up to speed, though, is of the utmost importance. 

If you’re entrusting something as valuable as your property to these people… then quite simply, you must be sure they know what they’re doing! They should know exactly which approach is required for which surface. They should know the best practices for safety, to ensure your property is at the lowest possible risk. They should know the importance of arriving and completing the work on time, being consistent, and creating as little disturbance as possible to the customer or client. 

  • Equipment 

Having said all of that… even with the best training in the world – whether it’s in soft washing or any other form of exterior cleaning – you still need good equipment to enable you to get good results! We know the old saying, ‘a bad workman blames his tools’, but the workman with rubbish tools is usually going to produce rubbish work regardless!

Look for a company that’s spent the time and money in investing in their equipment. This is a mark of professionalism, and should ensure the best results for your property. 

So, there you have it – four of the most important things to check for if you’re looking for an exterior cleaning company in East or West Sussex. Most of them can be evaluated by having a good look at the company’s website. Better yet, you can call them to ask about your job, ask them a few questions, and see if they meet these requirements. 

Or, best of all… you can simply save yourself the time and effort, and pick PC COM straight away! In all seriousness, we really do believe that we check each of these boxes. We’ve got two decades of experience in cleaning a very wide variety of commercial and residential properties, all our staff are trained to the absolute highest level, and we’ve made it a priority to consistently invest in new equipment (particularly when it comes to soft washing).
