Where ate u located?
@B Until it reaches moisture or another chemical, no fumes are created. So just be quick with dilution outside or with good ventilation away from you and there is no hazard. Keep it away from moisture and it lasts forever. I store it in the bag it comes in, inside a glass jar with PTFE seal, and twist tied bags around that. The Provident Prepper on TheXvid goes over its many uses if you are new to it.
@Stephen Williams I bet a building could be blown apart, just from what I was told one drum with a little ammonia did. This powder stuff has really bad fumes though? If outdoors would it be alright to handle it long enough to dump some in a tank without a respirator or something?
@B I work in HAZMAT safety and safety in general at a chemical company that uses liquid bleach in some formulations. I am in charge of employee health, among other duties in IH. Our facility cannot use ammonia, because we handle bleach. Our other facilities can make ammonia based cleaners, but we even have them on separate trucks and different parts of warehouses in our supply chain. We keep end user products separate that cannot mix, even including any possible accident in our facilities, by keeping raw materials in different tank storage buildings and spill containment. Many more common cleaning products are lethal if mixed. Our employees have to be approved by the BATFE as well.
I figured this out the hard way after pressure washing my house every year. You're right, the chemicals do the scrubbing! I mixed it a little heavy and let it dry too many times though. Now my yellow siding is more pastel but we like the color change haha
@Uh oh and chemicals
The sun does that. Mine has done the same and I've never used anything more than a broom and garden hose with water.
To be safe when your just learning, you don't ever need to go beyond 2% SH in the batch mix. Just re-apply and if multiple applications do not work - SH removing the stain is not your problem. Once you have experience try adding Enviro Bio Cleaner for greasy stains and Agent Green for a boost if mix is applied in cold weather. Now get to work!
lmfao, 2%?? that's just water man
Fun thing you can buy for relatively cheap, it's ether referred to as a foamer or medicator. It's a device designed for industrial and agricultural washing that puts chemicals down as a lather which helps it clean more uniform and helps with the breakdown afterwords so that your less likely to burn Grass and other things with your products. It also reduces cost of products due to the even lather it applies allowing you too use less product to get the same results.
@rishard daniels you can find them anywhere from $500 too $3000. Or save yourself the money and just buy a cheap medicator pump for $100 at your local hardware store and a foaming nozzle if you just strapping it on a cheap 2.5 gmp washer. It all comes down too the washer, if it puts out less then 4 gallons a minute then you can usually pick up a system for a few hundred. The one I got is for an 8gpm washer and it ran me around $2500.
How cheap is relatively? 🤣
@grifty mc grift Haha, going up to somebody's house in a fire truck to clean it, this got me laughing.
@Warriormedic68 a foam cannon is what they mount on fire trucks
Foam cannon is the proper term.
Helping others succeed in your same field is wholesome. Wishing you the best in your business
@Casey Jones I am at a lack for words. You really went and typed all that and not once did it cross your head maybe you were in the wrong? You directly added to a negative comment by utilizing "Also". So your comment, then, is to be taken as adding on to what other person commented. So yes, negative. If you actually didn't feel the same way as the guy whose comment you were adding on to, then you're at fault for making who you're siding with ambiguous and then getting mad when you're misunderstood. As a wise man once said, "Kick rocks and think before you go randomly commenting on TheXvid."
How is me saying that he probably works locally and someone copying his business in another state doesn’t affect him negative? To be honest how I see it you are bringing the negativity to this conversation. By coming in and even using the word to call people negative when you don’t even know the perspective from which it is said. Kick rocks and think before you go randomly commenting on TheXvid.
@Tito Alo 1. Naive* 2. I agree, he doesn't live off pressure washing. 3. So what? All I said is that you all were being negative. Which you are.
@Jio you're kind of naiv... This guy doesn't live from pressure washing, he lives from selling this kind of training set to people in need.
@Casey Jones Pessimistic
I enjoy watching your videos. I used to work with/for a deck and fence restoration company as a salesman when I was young. I'd meet the boss once a week at his favorite bar on Sunday afternoon. I'd give him signed contracts and cheques. He'd give me a commission cheque and a list of leads. Then he'd pay for steak and beer. But, I had to work on the job for two weeks so I would know what I was talking about. That's when I learned to use a pressure washer.Good content, kid.
When I used to own my own house I tried a variety of different methods for cleaning the sides of the house. The one that worked best was to take a car wash brush and put it on the end of a retractable pole and I would use simple green as a solvent that I would apply to the siding of the house and then rinse it off with a hose. It worked like magic.
pump sprayer with 12% SH and a garden hose would be much easier, could clean an entire wall in ~7 minutes
i worked for a guy who started his own power washing business and i was his only employee for awhile but he had put a lot of research into all of the chemical mixes and it was a great time working with him because i wasn't so scared to destroy houses and gardens
Heads-up, you can use this on mold almost anywhere, works really well on woods. Did one attic that probably would have given black 3.0 a run for its money and cleaned it on the first pass to the point it glowed.
I must say the fact you actually care about others going this and explaining it, is amazing to me and I appreciate it so much! It shows the world that others do care if you do a good job and offering to help
Question: what does the chemical do to the grass and soil?
At low percentage solution it does not burn grass if you pre wet & rinse afterward in hot enviroments or provided a pre wet in cold areas. Although beneficial microorganisms in the soil like nematodes will not survive SH. So do not spray it over garden soils or well cared for plants no matter the conditions.PS: Also tape keyholes to avoid potential rust in door locks and do not let the solution dwell on top of wood stained decks.
Kills it if your not careful
The grass and plants get rinsed before and after applying any chemicals to prevent any damage. But the typical ratio used to wash a house is only about 1-1.5% of sodium hypochlorite. It also breaks down into water over time. I've never damaged any plants or grass in my entire time in business.
That Condenser has an aluminum coil. That bleach water overspray on the condenser can damage the coil and will eat the paint of the condenser also. Please cover hvac equipment properly. You pressure washer guys have cost my customers some serious dough. Hope this helps.
@Ryan Triplett I'm a generally caution and considerate person. I pay attention to the details. I do IT and get paid fairly well but sometimes I daydream if I would have been good at owning a blue collar job.
That's a super expensive unit on this video too ...
I did HVAC for 7 years and i had the same exact thought you did. I started a junk removal business and ruined my back so now I'm doing this business and I've learned really quick how incompetent everyone really is within the industry. I mean nobody really follows the law or EPA regulations and the problem is, with all these chemicals being used, there isn't any type of regulation. I mean the EPA says directly NOT to use bleach, but people do it anyways. Lots of companies violate the clean water act on like every job they go to.
I used to work with a guy who would have us spend like an hour setting up, setting stuff off porches to wrap up, covering up plants that die easy like Hydrangeas, covering up anything stained, anything with exposed metal especially copper. There's so much to watch out for that two prior companies or their customers ever mentioned. Really sucks that some people just decide to start a business when they are hardly even qualified to be at the bottom of the ladder.
I have followed a right few of your video's man I have to say I am impressed by your knowledge and I can see how dedicated to your business you are. Best of luck from Ireland.
Simple green works great also! And virtually non-toxic
Yep, I discolored my siding just by applying an insecticide with the water hose. You have to use extreme caution and apply any chemicals to a very small area prior to doing the whole surface area.
unless you know what you're doing
I had issues pressure washing painted decks where to get the dirt and grime off, I'd have to have the pressure washer so close to it that it would flake off the paint, right along with the dirt & grime. Especialy with untreated wood and decks that get alot of sunlight or get covered in tree saps. So having knowing this now I'd much rather have a nice stained deck over a painted one as it's so much easier to touch it up or even restain it, and there is no need to continuously scrape off the old paint, then primer and repaint it every time. Not to mention it's hard to paint in all the cracks and crevasses and the underside of the deck. So in the long run it's just much easier to clean and maintain it and it simply looks better in my opinion.
You trying to help others start their own businesses proves you must be a good guy.
He doesn't, he sells package for a living...
Other then the fact that a lot of his advice is just bad, I did pressure washing for 10 years and this is not good
What kind of chemical do you recommend for the use on shingles? With our house and the others on our block being roughly 8 years old, all of the houses are starting to get random stains on the roof’s and I wondered this. Appreciate it and love the videos. Nice to see a person/young person getting out there and putting in time and energy to make their way in life!
Sodium-hypochlorite, aka bleach. You can get it at a high enough concentration at pool stores. Spray it on the roof with a soft wash system and just leave it up there! Brand new looking roof in 30 minutes. You may want to have it professionally done, as I have no clue where I'd start without having the equipment I use.
Bruh.. your videos are informative and succinct. I truly appreciate your content.
I have a 20 foot pole with a brush on the end that I use to clean my house. Also dishsoap and rinse with garden hose
Love your videos! So informative.
You're SO helpful! Thank You. 🤗
Love these videos, don't love the several thousand dollar classes being advertised as a 'resource page'. Anyone blowing that kind of money on a pressure washing course shouldn't be running their own business. I literally thought it was a page showing the mix percentages like what is implied in the video. Really nosedived the respect I had for this channel tbh
Hey boss thank you for your advice what do you recommend for walkways and driveways and what do you recommend for plastic side on home pressure washing
You’re a good man. Only critique; you’re using *Whenever* incorrectly
Is the “How to Wash” course everything a noob would need to know to get started? I see a “How to Mix” course right below it, does the how to wash course go over all of the mixing and chemicals needed?
Simple question for you. What is your favorite chemical to use on vinyl siding houses. What about slick concrete? Thanks for your advice
Simple question.... What are your favorite chemical to use on
I got trained in 2days with chemicals way stronger. I used to pressure wash the hoods and ducts of fast food restaurants the best guide is getting out there and giving it a try. But I commend him for teaching ppl his knowledge
Yes how To wash is all the basics. How to mix is in it as well
Keep it coming and be safe with the chemicals. Don’t want you to have to come see me in the ER🍁🍂✨🔥✨🍂🍁
When I work pressure washing I use a chlorine, industrial degreaser, laundry detergent and water mix
Always remember less chemicals you could always work your way up
You are a lifesaver dude 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
I use a substance I found at Lowe's and I sprayed on and hose it off and it works just fine and it's biodegradable
What kind of surfactant do you use? I’m down in Florida and starting to get into house washes and lanai cages.
We bought it at pool supply for weathered shingles works great
Awesome bro thank you for the advice
Save money on chemicals and use a heated pressure washer. 1. Initial cost is more. 2. Good quality quick connect fittings are needed. Works great. We do this with HVAC condenser coils. I tried it on my house. Very pleased with the results.
it's not a good option for a high volume of jobs and if you have a good chemical mix and power washing set up it's much faster
Run a soap feed through the power washer and spray any surface say 50/50 which is plenty! Apply solution and wait 5 minutes before power washing
I used pool chlorine and laundry detergent on vinyl siding for my business. Very little is needed but the detergent keeps the bleach from drying out. Most detergents are safe with bleach but make sure before you mix. The detergent will keep the bleach from drying and causing damage before you wash. Make sure you water the plants prior to applying chemicals or you'll have a mad homeowner.Edit: it is a water mixture. DO NOT USE FULL STRENGTH BLEACH! Also, always add water to chemicals, not the other way around. Chemicals are dangerous and consult an expert before mixing anything.
full strength bleach is fine depending on the surface and how long you leave it on.
Yo bro, what’s the total cost of starting up this business? (License’s, pressure washer, chemicals, etc.)
@Hunt For Adventure A surface cleaner would be my second purchase. After that you'd start looking at transportation, chemicals, then bigger and nicer equipment, including a buffer tank.
Depends on a lot of factors. Just start small, any machine will do, get a small surface cleaner and small pressure washer, go knock on doors to get business. Use the money you make you put back into the business. You cant buy it all in a day, it's difficult and time consuming. Good luck
Do you have a couple of basic chemicals to use for non organic stains im from the cali desert and can't seem to find anything to knock off non organic stains
I Know what you mean working the Apple Valley Area has the clay dirt stains all material
I used to power wash my 2 story for 2 days trying to power through it. After using a 1 part bleach to 4 parts water i let it soak for about 5-10 minutes and then powerwashed my siding and it knocked it down to an evening job.
@Rusty you gonna share?
@Daniel I brought the popcorn 🍿
Same here! Pretreatment is key!
@It's Zeyth I'm so lost in these guys interaction
@Capybara I don't know if you're referring to slowbalt or me, but either way that's rich coming from someone with no pfp.
OK. Once you have more experience, as you go along, you probably won’t need to use chemicals at all, as long as you have heat. And the more you use heat, the better you’ll get at not blistering painted surfaces. Never use heat on unfinished wood. But if you do use chemicals, and you’re on private property, and the runoff doesn’t go into the ground water, or down a storm drain, at least in the state of California, that’s legal, as long as you have permission by the property owner. Also, to say that you would ruin the surface, just isn’t true. Not always. You can always back off on the pressure, with a duel wand, or stepping away from the surface, in other words with your arms or just stepping back, turning off the heat, or using chemicals if you have to. Or, switch to another jet. I always like the 15°.
What sort of chemicals do you use for organic stains and smudges
I've never used chemicals when pressure washing, and we pressure wash for a contractor. We only wash to paint.
I would recommend you wear safety goggles when using Hypochlorite.
Quick tip: sodium hypochloride is the most common form of pool chlorine/shock.
I agree with most of what you say and do, but you should start from the bottom and work up if you are using chemicals. This gives it a better chance at penitraiting
Dude, I have a question. While washing off the organic stains, Do the chemicals you are using damage or burn the surrounding grass or plants that the owner wants to keep? Is it collateral damage? Thanks!
It wont, especially if you rinse the grass/plants before and after with water. Now, if it's a garden with very fragile plants, i'd be very careful.
What do the chemicals do to nearby garden beds? Do you protect plants or lawns in any way?
Muriatic acid works very well. Cheap sorta safe and works extremely well.
Do you use 30 seconds or do you recommend another solution.
That looks like a good thing your doing for your neighbors or friends
How does this impact the lawn nearby?
I just agree there's many ways to clean without ruining the environment
For the prices on those guides I'll figure it out myself. Lol
Are the chemicals detrimental to the soil and other organic life in the area?
Also be careful of what you apply because you can kill the grass and nearby plants from run off and clients hate that
I was literally about to buy a handpump sprayer like this to get a higher concentrate until I can a proper softwash setup built
@SB2H I love got 2 now and idk how I did it without them before 🤣
Gotta have like 4 pump sprayers on your rig at all times 😂😂
I just put my feet into the soft wash game and got one of those North Star 13gal soft washes. Works great for driveways
Great job 👍
Do you know how to completely stop molds growing back in the shower room?
The answer is actually no because you can selectively choose houses with no stains or just drive ways to build ur self up then buy chemicals
That's a good pro tip. Let the chemicals do the work for you.
You do know as a business you are not aloud to let chemical drain into natural water corses
The sodium hypochlorite (household bleach) and water solution destroyed my plants and flowers.
Lol!! I love how you call chlorine "sodium hypoclorite" in the beginning and then admit that it's just bleach
@SB2H yeah lol, some people see chemicals in a bit too special light
it's all the same chemical, sh is just the technical name
What about damaging the grass?
You seem to be a hard working smart young man. Keep on doing what yr doing & follow God & you will go far in life. Bless you!
How do you protect the grass?
Any cleaning products you can use that are safe for the environment?
@Will hmm alright man I wasn't trying to be rude or anything so sorry about that. There just has to be something. Lol
@Anony Mouse that’s exactly what you asked though, every chemical is unsafe for the environment if you use enough of it, even organic baby shampoo
@James Andrews Okay, that's not what I asked though.
You can also use baking soda
Always rinse off the plants surrounding the house as well . Don't want to kill your customers roses😊
yo that's cool alot of houses need the cleaning !!!!! get it going!!!! 🤑🤑🤑😘
I calculate ratio by feeling looking smelling the chemicL as it comes out mixed
What's to use in bathroom tiles The normal shop ones says will clear the stain but doesn't completely 😞
So fun , i can do these all day , how much do you get for this ?
Most teenagers starting a business don't have 400 dollars laying around to spend on a guide.I am totally fine charging for it but 400 dollars??
I bought a nice pressure washer to clean my RV. The gel coat fiberglass gets a green growth on it on the shady side.Just plain water gets it off but I'm slowly eating away the pinstripe stickers.
@Robert Arsenault I use about a 1:3 ratio 1 part bleach 3 parts water. Just be sure you get everything wet with the bleach and it doesn't dry or sit tooooo long on there. Especially if you have a dark colored fiberglass. I usually spray it and get it well saturated and let it sit for about 15 minutes. You could even brush it around and then your basically just using the pressure washer to mechanically remove it. Hope this helps!
@Rusty what ratio do you use?
Dude take it from me who did the same thing...bleach mixture pretreatment makes the mold and green go away even before you start washing!
We have hardened Mud Dobbers even with a pressure washer it’s so hard to remove and my carport is full of it. We have textured walls in there 🤦🏻♀️ help!
Mud dobbers are a pain in the ass to remove, their nests are effectively concrete. I wouldn't personally risk using high pressure to get the off because you would almost assuredly damage whatever the nest is cemented to. Get as much as you can off with a safe amount of pressure, and for the rest I wish you luck! Maybe try sandpaper?
I pressure wash my driveway and it begins getting dark by the next month. I ended up buying my own pressure washer to save money years ago, but I’m getting tired of having to do it 6 times a year. Can I put a clear sealer on the driveway once it’s clean? How long would a sealer keep it clean?
Yes you can seal it. How long it lasts depends on the sealer and will say on the can.
there are many bleaches, but for those curious, sodium hypochlorite is the bleach you can buy for your clothes. the concentration you pick up for laundry use is 10% - 12% typically.
Bro sick I’m tryna do the same and tryna get business can be difficult
Also get a hot water pressure washer, the hot water will clean ass well as chemical and is safe for pets and stuff, and you don’t have to worry about consequences from chemical
One thing Bleach can be used but not on mold! Bleach only treats the surface and it doesn't go down to the root of mold🤔🤷🏽♂️
While applying chemicals don't you have to take the grass below into considerstion?
Good job keep it going money growth is for you
100% Correct. Proper Cleaning Agents are essential.
Hey man, where is the link for the chemicals and what to use and what ratios?
Dry ice blasting would’ve worked great on that siding!
wtf? never heard of it, sounds cool. Bleach works wonderfully too though, and that whole house was probably finished in under an hour and a half.
30 second cleaner all you need you can use it on anything. And it won’t hurt anything ten bucks for a bottle
How much pressure when you warsh it?
“My dogs love laying in the yard, I wonder why they keep getting cancer”
Good info. Thx.
TiL: chemicals were used. I honestly thought it was ligit just high pressure water.
I'm curious do you use Oxalic acid or Sodium Percarbonate
Sound volume put it up to 75% that's the way you should go
I have a question when you wash a home like this do you use the homeowners water supply or do you bring your own water in a tank.
And the chemicals are environmentally safe, like the runoff water doesn’t damage any gardens, lawns etc? Thanks in advance!
@Anita Bath it's a 10-12% concentration from the pump sprayer
@Anita BathIt's like 25% or 50% at worst so it's pretty okay
@James Andrews just any regular type of bleach, eh? Wow. Thanks for the reply, and for the informative tips. Much appreciated :)
Does that do anything to the grass?
