Recently, FCT Cleaning conducted a thorough cleaning and decontamination of a dwelling that had been previously used as a meth lab.
Our specialist cleaning team were instructed to go to the aforementioned premises in order to complete a thorough cleaning and decontamination of the former meth lab. After cleaning down the walls and swab testing the area, the swabs were sent away to a specialist laboratory for testing. The sites of the dwelling that were cleaned and tested included the following areas:
Each site was thoroughly analysed for several hazardous substances, including methamphetamine, MDMA and heavy metals.
After the investigation and cleaning operation completed by FCT cleaning, the reports showed that the dwelling was now free from hazardous substances and illegal contaminants. This is an excellent outcome, and both the team at FCT Cleaning and the client are extremely happy with the results.

Is your driveway looking a little worse for wear?
In autumn, falling leaves from deciduous trees and windy conditions can clog your driveway up with debris. Not only are leaves and dirt on your driveway unsightly, they can be hazardous to vehicles and damage the surface over time. Leaves will break down and create mold and surface stains on concrete, which can be very difficult to remove. Don’t panic! Call the experts at FCT Cleaning for highly effective driveway cleaning that will save you both time and money.
Don’t waste time trying to remove stubborn dirt, stains and leaves from your concrete driveway this autumn. The easiest and most effective way to clean a concrete driveway surface is high pressure cleaning. High pressure cleaning involves the use of powerful hoses that release a stream of water at extremely high pressure. When the jet of water hits the surface, the fast moving water particles blast away anything and everything stuck to the concrete. In addition to this, the electrical polarity of the water molecules allows them to stick to any stubborn dirt and grime.
High pressure cleaning is so powerful with water alone, it completely removes the need to use corrosive and harmful chemicals to effectively clean the surface. Choose a safer and more environmentally friendly way to clean your property today with high pressure cleaning from the experts at FCT Cleaning.
If you are thinking of selling your home or property this autumn, a clean driveway lifts the entire appearance of your property and sends a positive first impression to potential buyers. On the other hand, a dirty or grimy driveway is a guaranteed way to make your home look less valuable.

A high pressure cleaning (also known as a pressure washer) is a machine that mechanically sprays a surface to remove any stubborn debris.

This is very efficient at cleaning outdoor areas such as patios, driveways, decking and even things like barbeques and outdoor furniture. Grime, dirt, dust and other properties can quickly and easily be removed, and leave an area looking fresh and brand new.

Limestone is a naturally occurring sedimentary rock and contains at least 50% calcium carbonate. When it comes to buildings, it is commonly used as flooring, shower surfaces, countertops, and walls. This rock is formed in shallow seas and is created by the compression of marine invertebrates over many years.
This is quite often the building material of choice because it lasts for a long time and is aesthetically pleasing. It can come in almost any colour depending on what type of elements are combined with the calcium carbonate inside of the rock. It is also an environmentally suitable option and is easy to get a hold of, giving more reason to why so many buildings are made from limestone.
One of the downsides to limestone is that it easily scratches and crumbles as it is relatively soft. As it is a lighter material, it is also more likely to show dirt and grime when it sticks to the surface. With proper care this isn’t an issue, however, without methodical cleaning, it may become irreversibly damaged and will need to be replaced.
This is where expert limestone cleaning comes in. Here at FCT Cleaning, we are able to come to your home or place of work and cater to your limestone cleaning needs.
As Perth is home to many limestone buildings, we understand how is important it is to remove dark marks that can arise and protect the surface as much as possible. We are able to easily achieve this by using a high-pressure water cleaner. This blasts water onto the surface and is able to remove all of the muck without damaging the surface itself. We also believe that using water is one of the best methods because no chemicals are involved which can also negatively affect limestone.
We have some amazing before an after shots on our website that show the difference pressure cleaning can make on your limestone pavements, pool areas or walls. This can make a huge impact when it comes time to selling a property or even renting it out. Pressure washing can give your home an instant facelift that is sure to impress family and friends.
We recommend booking in a professional clean every few months, so your home will be looking at its best at all times. For those wanting to make their clean last even longer, they are able to enquire into our sealing services.
This is when we professionally spray a sealant over a surface to protect it from the elements. If you are not sure if your surface needs a clean or a seal, we are also able to inspect your property to let you know what we think the best thing to do for your surfaces is.
Here at FCT, we have years of experience in the surface cleaning industry and pride ourselves on our exceptional and fully mobile surface.
We are the preferred company to use by many businesses and we are confident that you will enjoy our limestone cleaning services too.
We are up-front with our prices and even offer obligation free quotes for your convenience. Get in contact with us by calling (08) 9204 3333, by filling out our online contact form or by emailing us at email@example.com.
All enquiries are more than welcome, and we are happy to answer any questions you may have about limestone.

It is widely known that investing in a property can be one of the smartest financial moves to make. Whether you decide to rent out the property or to live in the residence, it is likely that interest will build on that property and that equity will be gained. This, however, becomes less likely to occur when a property is not taken care of.
This involves ensuring that all wiring and appliances are working and kept in good condition, as well as regularly clearing the guttering. It means controlling any garden areas so that weeds and rouge branching are never causing any issues or becoming an eyesore. This further involves, ensuring that all outdoor surfaces are free of grime, dirt, mould, and algae. The outside of a home or property is the first thing that people will see, and it is imperative to give good impressions. A homes surfaces can set the tone for the rest of the property, so it is important to have them looking as clean and clear as possible. This way is it more likely that a building will retain its value (if not increase in value) and is a great way to protect your investment.
Here at FCT cleaning, we offer professional high-pressure cleaning that will ensure any outdoor surface is looking its best. We find this method extremely effective as the positively charged water molecules will stick to any dirt or grime and pull it away from a surface. This means that stone pavements, feature walls and outdoor furniture can be cleaned to look brand new again. This is the perfect way to ensure that your property keeps an up-to-date look and tenants will be kept happy.
Regular surface cleaning
Here at FCT, we encourage regular surface cleaning to achieve the best results. We do understand, however, that this cannot always be done, especially when there are tenants living in a property. A great way to counter this is by implementing a professional clean before tenants move into a property, and we can apply a seal. A seal can be used on a driveway or other outdoor surfaces to keep grime and mould at bay for longer. It can also be wise to include a maintenance clean every six months in your lease details, so tenants can know that an outdoor surface clean will regularly take place.
As well as removing dirt and grime from a surface, our professional team can also cater to graffiti removal and chewing gum removal. Graffiti can immediately reduce the value of a property and can be detrimental when trying to make a sale. We can easily remove this as well as gum to ensure that a building is looking professional at all times. We can further strip paint from old surfaces or furniture to allow for a repaint. This is a great option for older properties that are in dire need of a paint job.
As is can be seen, there are many benefits to regularly cleaning a properties surfaces. Our professional team only use the most ethical and natural products possible, so you can have peace of mind knowing that your children and pets are safe after a clean. Furthermore, seeking the support of an expert team is a great way to retain value in the property as well as protect your investment for years to come.

At certain times of the year, cobwebs can become out of control. Yes, they are a natural part of life, however, they can become a nuisance when they begin to overtake an outdoor area. Windows can become clogged up and sitting areas can become an eyesore. It can also become a huge issue for those who are scared of spiders. Some people even avoid certain areas of their homes because they are afraid that there may be too many spiders there.
Cobwebs also tend to be quite sticky so they cannot simply be brushed away. Areas that were once favourites to entertain can become forgotten because people do not want to sit among the webs. Thankfully, there are a few quick things that can be done to take care of overwhelming cobwebs so your home is back to looking its best in no time. Here are some ideas on how to best take care of cobwebs.
Remove them as soon as you see them
One of the best ways to take care of webs is by removing them as soon as you see them. This way, spiders will be less likely to choose that area as their home and will eventually move elsewhere. When webs are left, more spiders tend to also arrive which then, of course, causes more cobwebs. A quick and easy way to remove them is to grab some paper towel to grab the webs and throw them in the bin. Using paper towel is a great way for them to not get stuck to your hands, however, webs can usually be washed off easily with some water if they do get stuck.
Use a vacuum cleaner
Another great way to take care of webs, without them getting stuck to you, is with a household vacuum cleaner. An extension cord can be used so that the vacuum can be taken outdoors to tackle the outside areas. Places that are prone to cobwebs are windows, corners and flyscreens. The only downside to using the vacuum is that is can be hard to lift up to reach high places. For the majority of webs, however, the vacuum can be a great tool.
Purchase a cobweb brush
A cobweb brush can easily be found at a local hardware store and is the perfect way to reach those high areas. The bristles are rounded, unlike a usual broom which makes them an ideal tool for getting into corners. They also include either a long or extendable handle which will allow users to reach cobwebs on ceilings or other high spaces. They can be used indoors or outdoors and are a great item to keep on hand to quickly tackle cobwebs as they arise. The bristle can easily be washed under the sink so that old webs are washed away.
Finally, the best way to remove cobwebs is with pressure washing. Here at FCT Cleaning, we are able to come to your home and pressure wash all of your outdoor surfaces. This will not only remove cobwebs but will take care of dirt and grime as well. Outdoor furniture can even be taken care of with professional pressure cleaning. We find that this is the most eco-friendly and safest options to not only taking care of outdoor areas but to taking care of cobwebs as well.

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.
