Soft Washing Siding
Permalink  
 


I am looking at a house cleaning job that has a pine siding painted with a latex or enamel paint.  Is there anything in particular that I need to be concerned with when washing.  I am using a diluted roof mix without TSP.  I have cleaned alot of vinyl but am concerned about the wood.

Dilute your mix down to about 2% to 5% concentration of SH, and lots of surfactant. Give it pleanty of dwell time, NO TSP.

I have used it on painted surfaces, such as pine, weaken it way down, I use 3-4 gallon sh to 40 gallon H2o, and 50 oz of dawn... it will work just fine...

In a one tank, one batch mix I would do this in a 100 gallon mix (100 gallon to make it easy measuring)

10 gallons, Sodium Hypochlorite (or 3 lbs powdered bleach)
85 gallons, Hydrogen Di Oxide
5   gallons, Favorite Soap, Algaecide combination. (many listed in this section)

Then spray out with a low volume 12 volt pump. Rinse after 15 min with garden hose pressure.

Thanks,

AC

 85 gallons Hydrogen di oxide? Is this correct? Where is the H2o?

H2O2 (hydrogen dioxide) is basically just oxygenated water or otherwise known as hydrogen peroxide. It acts as a great bleaching agent!

I stand corrected! Not the first time I've been wrong. Chemistry teacher was chinese, couldn't understand a word. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.

85 gallons of hydrogen peroxide would be kind of expensive

WOW! Talk about over kill for doing just 1 house. 100 Gallons...Really?
If you want to be really careful and not have to worry about anything, you could also use Sodium Per-Carbonate and dawn. The green stuff won't disappear
like with Sodium Hypochlorite but it loosens it from the siding so you can easily power wash it off.

Isn't it supposed to be wet? I have some strong 65 percent Hydrogen Peroxide and it looks like water.

Hydrogen dioxide appears as a clear or light-blue liquid that is actually a weak acid. It is slightly thicker than water because it has an added oxygen atom. This happens when ultraviolet light hits oxygen in the upper atmosphere in the presence of water, or H20. When this happens, ozone, written scientifically as O3, loses one oxygen atom, which combines with water to make H2O2, the chemical notation for hydrogen dioxide. Because it is produced in the upper atmosphere, it is found in rain and snow in very small amounts. Hydrogen dioxide is highly soluble in water and impossible to detect by visual inspection.

Good Lord.... Make a batch of Bleach and your favorite surfactant (I like using Ammonyx Lo or Dawn) Downstream it, rinse it, collect the check and move on to the next one.
