the EPA can enlighten you better than i.I'm just saying that in this day and age most homeowners are looking for eco friendly cleaning contractors,and Ive found that safer cleaning methods are what customers in my area are looking for.



Eco-friendly, Envirosponsible, green, organic, blah-blah.

These terms are there for marketing. No one regulates them.

A bottle of Sodium Hydroxide and Ethybenzyn was labeled "Eco-Friendly"

The Bleach bashing started because uneducated people too the term "chlorine is bad for the enviroment" and ran with it.

It tech terms "Chlorine" is a gas. SH or CH is not "Chlroine" by those standards. They are both used in water refinement and posted by the EPA as safe.

I have actually been audited by the EPA and they were quite impressed with our solution and standards of control.

Nothing we use doesn't biodegrade.
Everything is safe in the proper dilutions.

SH is not on the EPA's hit list.

People abusing it without standards might be, but the SH itself is not.

I don't understand why any of you guys are using harsh sh.most homeowners i talk to don;t like it and it doesn't seem to do the job eco-friendly cleaners i have found do.you guys are living in the past and need to get withe times.green cleaning is the new age! theres alot of new more earth friendly cleaners out on the market than some cheep homemade solution you contractors are coming up with.



I challenge you to show me one solution readily available on the market that can clean a roof as safely and efficiently as my solution using less than 100 psi and less than 1 man hour per 1,000 sqft.

If you can prove it.

I'll be your poster boy.

Alright lets stop the bashing,"cant we all just get along" We are all in the business to clean roofs.it doesnt matter to me whether or not you use sh based cleaning solutions,the fact is that we all need to stick together and find the best ways possible to make our customers happy and at the same time make money doing it well!

You brought it up.

I am really seriously interested in it.

I have tried most anything on the market and they don't work.

New Tech bulletins discourage the use of SH.
Now, I know how to clean a roof safely and effectively without SH, but it's costly.

So if you know something, or think you know something...

Please share.

Yea, I can clean a roof also without the use of hypo or pressure,..but it is the gold standard at running a profitable competitve busimess. If someone has a direct replacement,..lets see it and try it out.

I never share my cleaning methods with competition.The fact is that it does WORK!!! and you need to do research,if you want the success i have had.i can tell you that I'm making more than .15 per sq.ft.on roofs and have been doing so for many years.Believe me the competition here is as fierce as it is everywhere else in the country.Here in Maryland the EPA really does regulate what chemicals are used on any exterior surfaces,because of so many complaints of incompetent uneducated contractors in the area,that abuse the chemicals.

Well I'm not sure where you are.

It is a requirement that your bio and signature be filled out.
Please do so.


As far as the rest of it...

Seems to me thatyou're just another forum troll wanting to start trouble and we've had enough of that.

This is a place for sharing. If you're not into that, cool.
But you may just want to leave the comments about a better way out of it.
Since you can't produce evidence of any.

Well, guess what RCIA is for?
Sharing.
I found your advertisement in the rag paper Pennysaver biggrin"DSSHINGLECLEANERS  is located in Lusby,Maryland and serves all of the southern Maryland area and neighboring counties.Owner Dave Schuhart "
If you have nothing to share, as you have stated. You should certainly be banned immediately! Not to get even with you disbelief but you are abusing this site by coming here and gleaning all you want from us and blatantly stating you will share nothing in return. So, I don't know how it's done, but some moderator should show you the 1 way door OUT!
SEEYA! no

Real apology? It really doesn't matter. More likely he has more info he wants to take from us and stick to his guns about sharing nothing. I say ban him. Is this the type of person RCIA is for?
We know what he's here for, to TAKE, TAKE TAKE and give absolutely nothing back.

Chris, you are being too nice-like always! He has made it clear that he is here to take and not to give. Why not put him out before he gets to glean all he wants from us first?
He says straight out he won't share a thing, so he deserves nothing from us.
That's up to you, but it's the most flagrant violation of what RCIA has always been about that i've seen! The audacity!no
