We used Gain dish soap apple mango tango and the Arm & hammer clean burst. Cleaned very well, Smelt good and the cling was better than the mix we used the day before which was slightly different surfactants.

Okay...


I wasn't going to do it but...

Here's a little secret we use a lot. 1 cup does wonders.

It's a bit too expensive for roofs in my area. But I LOVE this stuff.

Aaron if the Gain apple mango tango covers the smell of the Sh, why do you sometimes use the green apple? Thanks.......

Actually, Pine Oil "works" to cover up the small of chlorine, but it is not real water soluble, and you end up with GLOBS in your tank that look like something out of the Alien Movies. But like Matt said, most of my development stopped because pressure washers are KILLING the roof cleaning business here in Tampa. Roofs are being done so cheap here, it does not allow all the good things I know.

I come across guys weekly who will clean a 3,000 sqft barrel tile roof with a surface cleaner for $99.00
Houses for $50 and driveways for $25
Cold water, no chems....

I also see soft washers that will do them for $65-95 a roof.

The only reason i'm not completely bankrupt is that 99% of them screw something up and I get the neighbors, lol.

But yes, in this area we are lucky to get $0.10 a sqft for tile or shingle.
I make more money cleaning concrete then roofs.
