I did 3 once and I was freaking spent and taking FOREVER. More power to you guys.

Dan, my thumbs both felt really tough the other day, like I had super glue on them and I was wondering what was going on. Then they started shedding skin like a snake! Did that happen to you or has that happened to you? I wear chemical resistant gloves, but it seems that I always end up getting my bare hands on it at some point.

Do you wear a respirator?

Maybe the issue isn't so much your exposed skin (unless you are getting sprayed a lot?), but the fact that you may be inhaling this crap all day?

There's actually a lotion that acts as a chemical repellant too. I know guys that work offshore use it to prevent chemical burns. They're from DCP and called barrier creams. Not sure how well it'd hold up to SH but it's definitely worth looking into.

 Haha! I have thought the same thing. The problem down here is that most of the Roof Cleanings we do are tile and take 2 and sometimes 3 apps. 97% have no gutters and landscaping that was installed by Bush Gardens and we have to take double and tripple the extra care to insure that we don't get THAT phone call in 2 days.

What takes US longer on most jobs is that we do House Washings,Concrete and Pool Deck areas on most all jobs. I think thye most Roofs we have ever Cleaned in one day was 4.

I thought cleaning out the gutters was one of those things that had to be done with roof cleaning?

Dan I am worried how you are getting that much on you that you may need some type of rain suit. The parasite /algae problem is really new on the N/E people are really just starting to pay it some attention from my experiance. I am glad I am not cleaning roofs in Jersey, Five roofs a day your prices must be like " crazy eddie's " INSANE!

80% of the time it is only one side. to do 5 roofs is within a 10 mile radious not to mention all of the time thats put into walking door to door with my info kit.

Dan hope there is no warranty with the one side roof cleaning because Iam cleaning jobs from another roof cleaning contractor in our area that only cleaned one or two sides of a roof with no warranty and its only been two - three years of the orignal cleaning.

I wont get into how many roofs a day a crew of two can do but when I played golf fr a living we all wore Adidas Clima-Cool shirts...they are spf 30 and are great for keeping the sun and heat off of your body.  They are not the cheapest thing out but they truly work. I bu them for my guys and they do not even know they have long sleeves on in this Florida sun!
