    Once, I bought advertising on the shit house walls. Seriously, a guy I met at the local chamber of commerce sold nice color ads that went inside the shithouse toilet stalls. When I met him, he said he had a shitty deal on advertising, LOL This was 20 + years ago, before cell phones took off, when taking a shit was quite boring. Now, with cell phones, I doubt it would work, but it actually worked quite well for us, more then paid for itself

  10. Joe Walters Insurance

    I have used them for years. Just won a t-shirt from them on their facebook page not long ago. Very happy with Joe Walters insurance for my pressure washing and roof cleaning company. We are able to give our clients good peace of mind because we have great coverage.
  11. Cleaning Roof Streaks

    Spray and forget is marginally effective for cleaning roof streaks. The only thing I can tell you is that whatever the product is, it's not what manufacturers recommend for properly cleaning roofs. It may void your warranty if not approved for safe roof cleaning by the shingle manufacturer. I know it's not the answer you want to hear, but is best to find an RCIA certified roof cleaning company in your area to safely handle this roof cleaning for you.
  12. Cleaning Roof Streaks

    Hi, Ive got the dark roof streaks from algae on the north side of the house. I would like to get rid of them without it costing me a fortune. I dont particularly want to get on the roof. My question is this: Does anyone know anything about DIY cleaning with Spray and Forget? May understanding is you can spray it on the roof by attaching the water hose to it and just leave it. The streaks will be gone in 3 to 6 months. Apparently it does not damage your shingles in any wayThe other method is to get some chloride or oxygen bleach up there one way or the other. Chloride bleach is the simplest and least costly but will it damage your shingles??? I have heard it might and I dont want that. I would try to find something to squirt the bleach up there and then rinse off with a garden hose using a ladder after a few minutes. Ive heard it works a lot quicker. Chloride bleach did a good job of getting rid of the dark stains around my stucco base -- at least after 4 days. Please help. I did not find the right solution from the internet.

    Welcome Tony! I would say that over 95% of people learned on the job, and never attended any school.

    Hi Everyone, My name is Tony and I am on the east coast of Florida. We are starting a soft wash roof cleaning business and have a lot to learn. Is there any schools in Florida that would help get us started? I see softwash systems near Sanford but are there any others? Thanks Tony
  15. Efflorescence

    Anyone soft washing come up with a good way to remove efflorescence? Got a really bad 20,000 sq ft building to clean and there is a lot of mold and mildew. It's never been cleaned and is approximately 20 years old. Soft washing would be quick and easy and most importantly fit there ridiculous low budget, but there is a lot of Efflorescence that will be left behind. I have successfully removed efflorescence by power washing and using a acidic cleaners and brushing off with steel wire brush but they will not pay for this service and would need a 30 foot lift. $$$ Just thought I would ask if anyone has ever found a way to remove it chemically that isn't to expensive?
  16. Spotty vinyl siding after soft wash

    Did you use laundry detergent or soap? I am using a product called Cling from Pressure Wash USA that works well with no residue but will be trying Slo Mo to compare it to. It's expensive with shipping but works amazing.
  17. Spotty vinyl siding after soft wash

    If it is a soap "alkaline" residue try some vinegar. What was your solution ratio, how much detergent to SH and how many gallons of water? From picture looks like I would spray some vinegar dwell a few minutes and rinse with water.

  21. Defective Dura Lock Stone Coated Steel Roof !

    Contact Gerard, their contact info is at the start of this thread. It is not your fault, but the condo association does not know that.
  22. Defective Dura Lock Stone Coated Steel Roof !

    Hello everyone, I also have a similar incident where granule is coming of the roof after our cleaning. I have done tens of metal roofs over the years but never had a similar issue. I found out that roofs are Dura Loc and they were installed after hurricane Wilma and were never cleaned before. The Condo Association is blaming our method of cleaning. We have used light bleach solution (less than 30%) that was sprayed on the roofs without pressure off a boom lift (no walking at all). A couple of weeks later, we received complains that granule is coming off. The condo has 9 large buildings but we only cleaned 1 building. I have no idea how to rectify this problem and hopping to get some guidelines on what to do here.
  23. 17 GPM ALL-FLO Air Diaphragm Pump is NOT like the others!

    If you are using that much line and doing 2 story roofs, you will want to be sure to have at least 5/8 diameter hose.
  24. Spotty vinyl siding after soft wash

    Guys, This vinyl siding that is about 20 years old was soft washed. After it was pretty much dry it looked very clean. However latter in the day the siding looked spotty / blotchy. It's faint but you can see it. We have not experienced this before. As you can see on my fingers it has a film of chalk. Does any one know to effectively clean this?
  25. In the market for a softwash system. What are the advantages of this system? Whats the difference between this air powered one vs gas or electric? Which one would work best in FL with tons of 2 story roofs & 200-300' of line completely pulled?
  26. What is SH ?

    SH is very much like Bread, it is always best when fresh.

    Another fine job by Apple Roof Cleaning.
  28. What is SH ?

    Also it is typically sold at 12.5% available chlorine by weight. If it's fresh, it can be as high as 15%.
