We have a house we cleaned with a lot of vines, this is for a company that flipps houses and wants to know if we can getbit off. We have had little luck. Any help would be great. Thanks!

Pat,

The little "suckers" that stick on from vines are one of the hardest things to get off. On brick soak with degreaser and hot water pressure wash off. Even with that they are hard to get sometimes and you have to really "get on" each one, kind of like popping gum off concrete. It's time consuming.

Pat, I'm going to assume the vines are gone and your issue is with the roots? My experience is somewhat limited, but as I recall we wore out three or four street brooms, along with our backs and shoulders. Good luck on this one. There is no magic bullet.

Pat,

We did this brick house this summer. all vines and "roots" came off.  first we sprayed a plant killer on the vines to kill everything, this was done a month earlier, then for the cleaning and removal it was apply a roof mix, dwell, pressure wash, repeat. we had to repeat this process 4 times to get everything off.  make sure it is priced as a restoration and not a cleaning.Grand Rapids pressure washing.JPGGrand Rapids pressure washing (2).JPG

I found that typically on any other surface than masonry, the ivy/vines usually attach and damage the siding or substrate. I do not even get involved as expectations are usually not met, for what they want to pay. Also, you are usually left with damage caused by the rooting action of the vines, and they usually need to paint or do minor repairs. Funny you asked about this, as I was asked about this twice in the last week by two different property managers. Must be vine removal seasonbiggrin

Mario and I did a wall in north Jersey back in the spring that we hit with a 4% softwashing solution and 3 oz per gallon Terra Wash. The chems broke up the residual vine roots very well BUT we did have to use a pressure washer lightly "LIGHTLY" to remove the fingers of the vine.
