    The next time you are outside, take a good look at your siding. Do you see green and black discoloration? That discoloration is actually algae, mildew and mold! They release air borne spores into the air. That is how they got there to begin with. Those organisms are alive and it can create an unhealthy environment for your family and pets, not to mention they are destroying the appeal of your property.  We are seeing more and more of this in Cicero and surrounding communities in Cook and other collar counties.
    The good news is that these invaders can be safely removed by a process called soft washing. Go here to read the rest of the story.

    Nice post Kevin. It's funny how I learned the hard way some of the things that you recommend not to do.

    It's going to get up to the 60s this weekend which is extremely warm for us. But it's only a teaser and will drop back down.

    I contacted Hannay and this is what they stated. "Because you have an 1 ½” pass through hub we have no other way to manufacture the reel than what you have. The smaller reels for ½” hose can are equipped with the true direct crank rewind."

    I found a very nice app called Easy Map Maker. I used it to create a map of all the jobs we have done. You can color code the pins according to say, type of roof. You can filter the different color pins. You can save it on line to later edit. It's used to visually see where your more profitable areas are. And best of all, it's free.

    Cedar Roof and Siding Cleaning in Elgin, Kane County Illinois
    Cedar Roof and Siding Cleaning in Elgin, Kane County Illinois
    The owners of this house were almost convinced that their cedar shake roof was beyond cleaning and would need to be replaced. Unfortunately most people don’t realize cedar shake roofs, as well as siding, needs to be periodically cleaned.  A properly maintained cedar roof will last at least forty years. The cedar shingles had dark gray, black and greenish colors.  The green spongy organisms that were growing on the cedar roof were moss. These are signs that the roof was overdue for a cleaning.

    The accumulator I purchase from Pressure Tek is small. Over the years, I have replaced it twice. Can someone recommend a better accumulator?

    Roof and Siding Cleaning in Will County Joliet
    Looking at the condition of this house near the , you know the owner takes pride in the property’s appearance. The siding is clean and attractive and the lawn is a lush green and well maintained.  There is one thing though that is out of place and you probably noticed it right away. It is the dirty roof. Even with the siding clean and nicely painted and the attractive yard, you just can’t help but be distracted by that stained roof. And you know the neighbors sure notice!
    Fortunately though there is solution. For the rest of the story, go here.

    I see you used a lift. I was temped to rent a lift for a job last year just to try it. My concern with a lift is that most of time, I would not be able to move it to the back of the house. What is your experience?

    Jeremy,
    From the photos it appears as Vermont slate which cleans up great. Use a little extra surfactant since the surface is relatively smooth and the solution runs down quickly.

    We started out using a spray wand. Unfortunately it is very delicate and after you drop and break it a couple of times you will want to switch to a ball valve.
  15. Advantage Roof Cleaning added a post in a topic: How to run a 12 volt roof cleaning pump w/o a battery!   

    On my rig, I have a battery charger wired to the battery. At each job site, we plug the charger in to the customer's outlet. That keeps the battery at or near 100% charge. And if for some reason a customer doesn't have an outlet, the battery will be sufficiently charged from the previous job.
