The Passing of Ted Watson of Rapid Hot Clean.

Recommended Posts

For those of you who are not aware, Ted Watson of Rapid Hot Clean of Oregon passed away after falling off a roof in December. It is thought he may have had a heart attack. He was on a single story low pitch roof and was not wearing a safety harness when he fell. He was laid to rest on 1/31/15. Ted was a GREAT guy and dedicated to this industry.  I had the pleasure of speaking and emailing with him on several occasions as fellow Pacific Northwest roof cleaners. He will be sorely missed in this industry. 


Please operate safely out there. Keep Ted in your thoughts the next time you step up onto a roof.

I wish there was the whole story from the News Media, in the form of a link.

If there was such a story online from  a credible source, not only would it be a great tool for the RCIA to push safety to all our members, but it would also be great to send to those cheapskate roof cleaning customers, who want us to work for nothing.


Some discount seeking customers do not seem to be aware that Roof Cleaning can kill us :(
