QUATTRO – REACH & WASH SYSTEM
FCT Surface Cleaning have just purchased and undertaken training in a Quattro Reach and Wash System, the best point of use system for a wide variety of exterior cleaning applications.
The tough, compact design and ease of use makes this system the number one choice for work in any area where both mains water and electricity are available. Without power available a generator can also be used.
This system can be used to access remote parts of modern buildings such as court-yards and roof tops for atrium cleaning.
High-rise buildings where suspended platforms are used as well as the abseiling technique also benefit from short water fed pole cleaning from rooftop.
This reduces time on site as well as reducing height risks. On-site building maintenance teams also use the Quattro for in-house window and façade cleaning duties as well as spot-free car washing.
QUATTRO SYSTEM IS IDEAL FOR:
A little bit about the system
Reach & Wash® pure water system allows windows to be cleaned from the safety of the ground using long reaching, telescopic water fed poles. These water fed poles provide reach and control without the need for large scaffolding systems, unstable ladders or rope systems that all require additional setup and take down time. For this reason, work efficiency is improved. The time you spend on site is reduced. This all add up to cost savings for the company and customer.
A soft bristled brush is used to scrub the dirt off the glass, while jets of pure water rinse the window. The pure water, as it has no impurities, dries to a spot-free finish leaving no marks behind. Using The Reach & Wash® system, modern window cleaning is no longer the dangerous job it once was.

In this busy day and age, many of us are working harder and longer. Sometimes weekends feel fleeting and we barely get time to relax let alone attend to our cleaning needs. It can all feel so overwhelming when our spare time is filled with completing odd (but important) jobs around the home or place of business. Boats need to be cleaned, pools need to be maintained and our windows need to be squeaky clean. There are bigger jobs that must be done such as high-pressure cleaning our driveways, removing graffiti or even restoring a property after a fire or flood. Whatever the job that needs to be completed, our team here at FCT can help. To help you decide if a professional cleaner is needed in your life, here are five signs that it’s time to hire a professional cleaner.
You resent coming home
Have you ever been in your car on the way home from work and have started thinking about the long list of things that must be done. If you have ever had thoughts that you don’t want to go home because there is simply too much to do, this is a sign that it’s time to seek help. Whether you need your courtyard pressure washed, or gum removed from your driveway, we are here to take the resentment out of coming home. After all, everyone deserves to feel at ease after a long day at work.
Your time poor
Many people these days are inundated with work commitments, sporting commitments and family commitments. After you factor in travel time, date nights, birthday parties and hobbies, there isn’t much time left to spend on your home or place of business. When you find yourself struggling to find the time to get to those niggling chores, it may be time to hire a professional.
You just can’t get on top of things
No matter how hard you try, you just can’t seem to get on top of things. Everywhere you look in your home, there is something to-do and you don’t know where to start. This is the perfect time to give us a call at FCT. We can help you with all different types of cleaning needs and have your homing looking spic and span in no time.
You have areas of your home you just don’t go in
Are there areas in your home that you just don’t enter? Do you avoid looking at your roof because you know it needs to be cleaned? Perhaps you have put a cover over your pool so you don’t have to look at it. Avoiding certain parts of your home or business is a sure sign that it’s time to call a professional.
You want more freedom
Do you want more freedom in life to do the things that you love? Do you feel bogged down by all the cleaning requirements that your home has? Do you feel like you don’t get to enjoy your pool because it’s dirty or needs recoating? These are all signs that you need a cleaner in your life. Give one of our friendly team members a call today so you get to have more freedom in your life to do the things you love.

Pressure washing of your courtyard and outdoor areas can make a big difference.
High pressure cleaning involves the use of incredibly powerful hoses that blast surfaces clean with water jets.
These water jets are pressurised at around 100-200 times the air around us, and they’re brilliantly effective at cleaning patios, driveways, barbecues, outdoor furniture and all other kinds of outside dirt and grime.
The results speak for themselves.
If you would like your outdoor areas re-vamped for summer, give the friendly team a call on (08) 9204 3333.

When we think about cleaning and maintaining our homes, the last thing we give thought to is cleaning the roof. Because we cannot physically see the state of the top of our houses, the task often goes by the wayside. Furthermore, it can be tedious and sometimes frightening when climbing up a ladder in order to walk across and clean our roofs. Even though it is easy to leave the job go undone, rooftop maintenance is actually a very important task. Here are some reasons why roof cleaning is so important…
It prevents rust: When leaving the top of your home uncleaned, it becomes the perfect environment for moss and lichen to grow. When this occurs, moisture can be retained after rainfall or heavy dew and the rust process begins. Once rust becomes an issue this can often lead to having to re-sheet your roof which can be a timely and expensive process. This can easily be avoided by having your roof cleaned on a regular basis.
It prevents mould: Especially for those living in humid conditions, mould can be a huge issue. It can get into the cracks and holes and spread very quickly. Mould can be a huge health issue for people, particularly for children with allergies. A regular clean can help avoid the spreading of any mould. If mould has already grown, it can still be removed with a roof clean coupled with a special mould biodegradable solution.
Stains can be prevented: The growth of mould, lichen, and moss can all leave unsightly stains on your rooftop. This can be an issue when you are wanting your house to look its best, especially if you are trying to sell your home. Instead of letting a home become an eyesore and bringing down the aesthetics of the whole street, a great option is to instead organise a regular roof clean.
It can improve the lifespan of your roof: A regular clean can help increase the lifespan of a rooftop by preventing the build-up of unwanted nasties that can damage a roof over time. A clean is a cost-effective way to ensure that any unnecessary maintenance or replacements are not needed down the track. A pressure clean of a tin or tiled roof is a great way to ensure the colour, structure, and functionality of a roof remains intact.
Seeking out the help of an expert roof cleaner can also help prevent the occurrence of any accidents. Professionals have all of the correct tools and insurances to make sure that no accidents, falls or slips occur. This way, you can have peace of mind that your roof is been taken care of without the stress of climbing up the ladder yourself. You can instead spend your weekends with the people that matter most, doing the things you love.
If you are interested in having your rooftop professionally cleaned, reach out to us at FCT Cleaning who cater to residential and commercial buildings. Our team doesn’t use any harsh chemicals or bleach to ensure the health and safety all of the residents of a home (animals, plants and people alike). We are also completely insured and have impeccable safety practices. Chat to one of our friendly staff members at (08) 9204 3333, or shoot us across an email to email@example.com..

Trying to keep your house clean and tidy, but concerned about the impact cleaning chemicals can have on your family? Traditional cleaning products often contain harmful chemicals that can have potentially toxic effects on both your home and health. Research has also shown that Australians are becoming more conscious of how cleaning chemicals can have a negative impact on the environment. So how do you keep your house clean? Don’t panic! The friendly team at FCT Cleaning have the answer to keeping your home clean and shiny, both inside and outside.
One of the most concerning environmental impacts from traditional cleaning chemicals is the ability of these products to contaminate local water supply. It is extremely easy for household cleaning chemicals to be washed down the drain, where they can lead to detrimental effects on both the environment and the local population. By using eco-friendly cleaning products that are biodegradable, these products readily dissolve and break down in water before they can have a chance to cause a negative impact on the environment.
The kitchen is home to what is widely regarded as the most difficult object to clean in your home: the oven. In order to clean the oven effectively, strong cleaning chemicals are often used in conjunction with rigorous scrubbing to soften and remove baked on grease and grime. Scrub for hours no more, as FCT Cleaning has an eco-friendly solution to your oven cleaning woes; Eco Live!
Eco Live is also non-toxic and completely pet safe. Instead of using harmful and potentially toxic ingredients to clean, Eco Live emulsifies oil and grease easily and effectively using a natural and hypo-allergenic formulation. Transform your home today with the best eco-friendly cleaning product on the market, Eco Live from FCT Cleaning!
Now the inside of your house is taken care of, what about the outside? Do you have a grimy patio or driveway, or a barbeque that has seen better days? FCT cleaning have an eco-friendly cleaning solution for you – pressure washing!
High pressure washing involves the use of powerful hoses that blast water on to an outdoor surface at an extremely high force. The high force of the hose, in conjunction with the natural polarizing abilities of water as a solvent, creates an extremely effective cleaning team without the need for harmful cleaning chemicals. Pressure washing can be used on almost any outdoor surface with fantastic results, including driveways, patios, and barbeques, as well as brick walls. Make your dirty house shine like new again, and be the envy of all your neighbours with effective, eco-friendly and affordable pressure washing from FCT Cleaning!

FCT’s Nick McLennan and Andries de Meyer are celebrating an amazing victory after winning their rugby grand final! Nick and Andries play for the Wests Scarborough Rugby Club who defeated the Associates Rugby Club 27-15 in what has been described by the Stirling Times as an “entertaining” game, making this a back-to-back Premiership for the Wests!
This is an amazing win for the Wests but there is more to celebrate because Andries also received the Patrons Trophy at the Awards Night!
In the past, Wests had won four grand finals in a row! After this winning streak it took a few years of hard work and dedicated players to reach that top spot in 2016, and now again this year.
The Wests hold a special spot in the heart of FCT as it is our founder, Tim Harris’s old club. FCT is a keen supporter of the club after having many players work here over the years.
FCT would like to congratulate the Wests on their incredible win and are incredibly proud of Nick and Andries. We’d also like to extend our congratulations to Andries for taking home the Patrons Trophy.
