Well we have a job scheduled for Tues Nov 29,2016 (Tomorrow) and it has rained the entire day....Is having this much rain going to effect my cleaning if the rain stops hours before the scheduled time ? The forecast for cleaning day is 10 mph winds with a high of 60 with NO rain for at least 24hrs.. Any/All responses to this post is gratefully appreciated !
We sprayed this detached garage roof on 10/11/2016 Our mix was 35% 12.5 SH/ 65%H2O As you can see it still looks terrible and the client is questioning the process used (these are the after 2 weeks pic's). We simply blew off all loose debris with gas blower then sprayed roof with 12v system and let dwell, no rinsing. We have had 2 good rains , unfortunately the temperature has declined but we have had days in low 60's. Is there anything we are able to do to increase our results ? I am confident we are needing to respray, but am questioning myself as to what process needs implemented ? The temperatures will be consistently 40-57 Any help with this unsightly situation is greatly appreciated !
I actually found a hypro pump. Real quick, I know this may be annoying, but will the hypro allow me to regulate the flow or is the air the ONLY way ? Sorry for all the stupid questions, I just am lost when it comes to creating mechanical equipment and just want to have the right system in place so when the time comes that we are 100% cleaning roofs we are successful without hesitation... Thanks for all of your professional knowledge !
So the Hypro pump is basically not available for immediate shipping, seems they build to order (per their rep) unless you can find one in stock somewhere and I called 20 different distributors without success. Also that sounds like a problem if ever need a replacment in a hurry. If I go to an air system can the flow of the chemical be regulated ? My situation is I want a roof pump but at the same time wanting to be able to use as a chemical application for pressure washing, Just a little in need of ALOT of help building this truck....
Sounds a lot like what we do in this household ! Although I sold my boat a few years back . (Lake Erie,Tigers games & Cedar Point ) GO Tigers ! And south bass island, oh god ! the stories left there ! CRAZY CRAZY ! Thats awesome ! Do you ever come back to visit, or did you have enough to last a lifetime when you moved to Tampa ?I am originally from Austin Texas and rarely ever make it back even though I absolutely loved Texas.
We go to the Mud Hens often. So you are totally familiar with the northern moss and yes steep ass roofs. What area of Detroit ? Do you ever make it back ? So what electric pump in your opinion is the best choice? Thanks for your response !
After reading on pumps, you recommended the "Hypro Versa Twin Plunger pump" Thorough research on the different 12v punmps this seems to be by far the most expensive and is only available with a max of 4 gpm/300 psi. (as far as i can see) Is that enough gpm ? The Fat Boy pumps are getting 7gpm/60psi. I am starting a build on our box truck and have decided to go electric for now. Our local pressure washer dealer has absolutely no roof cleaning knowledge, so basically is zero help... With that being said I am solely putting this rig together with only the help I can research here in this great forum...If there is anyone willing to share their professional experiences with a box truck build, I would be forever grateful with any and all knowledge you are willing to share.
I really appreciate your immediate response ! (I was actually shocked you answered so quickly) We are familiar with TSP, we actually use it often when cleaning exterior of homes with aluminum siding.However we are rookies at roof cleaning and if you are suggesting not to use at first, I am perfectly fine with that. As you can see in the picture there is quite a bit of algae,mold,moss and lichens. They do have gutters and this is actually a garage that sets away from the home and all landscaping with a 2/12 pitch so in my opinion a perfect roof for a rookie that is why we have accepted the job. Any and all of your professional suggestions are greatly appreciated !
