about Renova


enova Exterior Detailing (previously Wheelhouse Home Services) was created in 2015 and has been locally owned and operated since the beginning. After providing our Holiday Spirit Lighting (sister business) clients with efficient work, friendly customer service, and an overall positive experience, customers kept asking if we provide additional services. We realized that our business practices and operational processes could be used to offer our customers year round services and better serve the local community.

The business is operated by Brett Farrington, the owner and operator of Holiday Spirit Lighting, along with Erik Dodd and Sam McNearney. Erik was brought in to focus on Marketing and Business Development, while Sam is the General Manager. The decision to provide exterior detailing services came from a desire to help customers improve the look and feel of their business or home.

Brett, Erik, and Sam are eager to help develop and grow the business with the goal of becoming one of the best local exterior detailing and cleaning service providers in the Greater Seattle region.

Renova is latin word that means ‘to renew, restore, or revive’ and that is exactly what we do. We use the best window washing and pressure washing equipment and techniques to restore your property to it’s very best state. The Pacific Northwest has always been a hub for progressive values and we take this to heart by using eco-friendly products and equipment that leave a minimal impact of the environment.
