The Washdown King

With nearly two decades of power washing experience, and having been involved in cleaning more than 6000 roofs across Canterbury, Andrew Shivas decided to go out on his own.

Experience matters

Trust is a big factor in Christchurch. Asking a professional to clean your home or business, you need to trust that they’ll look after your assets and do a quality job.

Andrew understands the value of trust, and a good job done well. For almost twenty years, Andrew worked as a painter and water blaster, eventually working his way up to National Manager for a nationwide company.

He brings this experience to The Washdown King, and is actively mentoring his team so they can become the most trusted power washers in Christchurch.


Safety and Sustainability

Health and safety laws have come a long way since Andrew started working in the industry. As standards have been updated, Andrew has kept up every step of the way. 

He and The Washdown King team understand the risks that come with working at height, or on a steep surface. At all times, he’s focussed on looking after his team, and looking after the people on your site, so everyone can come home safely.
