No New Posts Metal Roof SoftWashing
Here's a demo I did for a customer on a very conspicuous area of their metal roof, right over their front porch. They had used pressure washers (for $500) in the past to blast away at their roof and said they couldn't justify the $2400 to SoftWash. I used a 3% CH solution, sprayed, agitated, rinsed, then a...

No New Posts A Recent Video From A Local City Hall Metal Roof
Softwashers,   I just wanted to post a small video of my company cleaning one of the local city hall roofs with softwashing. Also wanted to say I recently switched to bulk SH from Univar (drums) and it is vastly more potent than my local merchant who claimed their product was 12.8% SH. It was also less tha...

No New Posts Metal Roof Restoration II
Having seen the results Brandon Vaughn had on his metal roof restoration, we had full confidence when we met with the owner that we could handle this project. To be on the safe side, we ran a test first. We used F13 (Gutter Grenade) to cut through the oxidation, and like Brandon pointed out, a lot of brush...

No New Posts Scratching my head on these metal spires...
Has anyone seen stains like this before? 4% SH or F9 didn't even touch it. To be honest I'm not really sure what kind of metal or finish it was originally - I'm thinking copper perhaps?

No New Posts Solution mix issue
I'm currently in the middle of the busiest week we've had at Shine so for the first time I filled the 100 gal bulk tank and went to work. I mixed four 50 gal batches of 4% solution today and with every batch it started out cleaning great but when I got to about 5-8 gallons left in the mix tank my solution wasn't...

No New Posts Galvanized Steel Siding staining
I have a customer who is currently under contract to clean a very large Mercedes dealership, with most of the building covered in galvanized steel siding. There are some stains, either oxidation or something else, that do not come off with brushing, softwash solution. I was thinking of going out and...

I had only contracted with the customer to do a regular spray treatment for $900 to remove the black algae and lichen growing on the surface. It was definitely a learning experience f...

No New Posts Oxidation on a metal roof
Came across this job today. Its a 12 year old metal roof, green in color. The house has an addition on the left hand side that shows the color of the roof and newer metal that is still the original color. The light, puke green color is oxidation. There is still plenty of good color left under the this, just n...

No New Posts Tile or Metal?
Cleaned this unique roof today. On initial glance, it looks like a old school ceramic/asbestos tile roof, but its actually individual metal tiles.  Cleaned up at 1% with two to three coats.  We also cleaned the big "Marshmallow" pool dome in the photos too, inside and out. Found a new type...
