Since pressuretek's kits are expensive. Its time to use my noodle and "jimmy rig" my own custom system utilizing plumbing parts. I will post what i con**** up.

Only question i got is. Since the mixes require water. Could i just mix all the ingredients together straight. then design an injector to adjust the ratio of water to concentrated solution to get the right mixture? is that possible or just easier to mix it with the right amount of water ahead of time. i'll figure something out. i have enough engineering know-how to design something up.

You can always find a way to rig something. But in the long run it may cost u more. lol. Check out this site a lot of good roof cleaning only info. U can be completely set up at ptek for 500 and make that back with 1 or 2 jobs. How much did u spend on a mower and how many jobs does it take to make that back?????

Default Shingle roof cleaning: Try Clean-All or Revive-All from www.ices.net

I have had a lot of people ask for this service lately. The newer shingles seem to contain larger amounts of limestone which is like food for mold. Has anyone used the Roof QSE products http://www.cleanertoday.com/Roof-Cle...f-qse-3000.htm I picked up a trial package for like $50. Got to spend $$$ to make it. So if no one has used it Ill let you know how it works. Or if ive been duped out of a Grant. LOL


Thanks in advance
My name is Dan Swede I work at Industrial Cleaning Equipment & Supply in Fort Lauderdale Florida. We manufacture two amazing products Revive-All and Clean-All for shingle roof cleaning. They are both safe around plants and they are designed to work on the worst mildew covered roofs.

Both products are diluted 10 to 1 with water and one gallon will clean a 1,500 sq ft roof.
$18.95 per gallon and it is cheaper in bulk, bottom line it only cost a little over 1 cent per square foot to use it.

Welcome to our forum Dan.

What do you recommend the best way to apply your products and then to wash them off? How long does it take for your product to do it's job?

You can use a 12-Volt chemical sprayer if you plan to do a lot of roof cleaning, like we install on the trailers we build. (See my youtube video link below) or you can use a pump up or backpack sprayer.

Mix the Clean-All or Revive-All 10 x 1 water (10 part water) let sit around a 1/2 hour and use a low pressure rinse. Normally once your done spraying the cleaning solution you should be able to start washing off the roof.

If you use a small pressure washer like a 5 HP to 13 HP Honda to rinse the roof off, you should use a low pressure spray nozzle or lower the pressure on the unit itself.

The other rinse option is to use a water broom, connect it to the end of your pressure washer wand. The water broom is 16" wide with 4 spray nozzles and two wheels on the end. Since it has 4 nozzles with 65 degree fan each, the fan cover the entire width 16" plus inches and that reduces the impact on shingle roof. (The water brooms are very inexpensive)

Link to my Youtube video that shows hundreds of mobile pressure cleaning system that I have designed and sold in the past. Click here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2klin700YZM or cut & paste in your browser window.

Those are some fantastic machines!

Since you deal a lot with pressure washing businesses, do you have any suggestions on what kind of marketing works best for residential or commercial customers?

What about which services tend to sell more than others?

If you can't attach it in one piece, can you upload it in sections? That might work better.
