General Formulas:
 
(Please write these down in an place where you will always see it!  I go over the formulas almost every call and almost always receive calls every day asking me to repeat the ratios.   I love to hear from you but it prevents others from being able to get in touch with me!! :) )
 
These formulas are general guidelines.  ALWAYS try a test area, FIRST and out of sight.  Ask when the home or building was last painted.  Some soft-washers will not wash a home or building if it was painted under a year ago.  Many soft-washers carry cans of spray paint in white, off-white or gutter touch-up paint to touch up affected surfaces.  Educating your customers prior to providing your service will prevent costly misunderstandings.  For example, algae does not easily adhere or grow on a slick and shiny surface.  Once streaked gutters are cleaned, they may appear not as glossy because the damage occurred to the surface prior to brightening and cleaning the gutters.   Please keep your recipes simple.  Before adding anything to your recipe, EXHAUST yourself finding out whether or not it will negatively react with the sodium hypochlorite or anything else including your equipment.  Just because someone else is posting that they use a certain chemical does not mean that it is safe or that they ACTUALLY use it.   Extremely Important Tip:  ALWAYS take before and after pictures of EVERY JOB including dead plants and previously damaged property or roof tile .  Having photographic evidence of dead plants, property damage, broken tiles or shingles before you arrived or against a dirty home or building prior to providing your services will save you thousands of dollars in replacing plant life or repairs that should not have been your responsibility.

Do you need a fragrance to cover or mask the smell of sodium hypochlorite?  
Do you want to buy it direct from the manufacturer?
Pressure Washer Products is different!  
We were the FIRST ones to carry the 
sodium hypochlorite stable surfactants.  

Mix the fragrance and a surfactant and watch your savings grow  
Your suppliers are using fragrances such as Horizon AromaticsChemiaNilum or FloraChem.
These companies will be happy to sell directly to you.
Cut out the middle man.  Some of the names of these fragrances are going to sound familiar.

Fragrances range from $0.25 to $14.99 per pound.  
(The more you pay to the manufacturer of the fragrances, 
the stronger the fragrance may be or 
better job the fragrance does of masking the sodium hypochlorite odor.)

In a 100 gallon container, thoroughly mix the following:
50 gallons of 10-12% FRESH Sodium Hypochlorite
49 gallons of cool water (NEVER hot water)
1/2 gallon to 1 gallon of Hang Tite or Ammonyx LO or 1 quart to 1/2 quart of Ammonyx M (thick)
 
Shingle or Composite Roofs:
 
In a 100 gallon container, thoroughly mix the following:
30 gallons of 10-12% FRESH Sodium Hypochlorite
69 gallons of cool water (NEVER hot water)
1/2 gallon to 1 gallon of Hang Tite or Ammonyx LO or 1 quart to 1/2 quart of Ammonyx M (thick)
 
Metal Roofs:

79 gallons of cool water (NEVER hot water)
1/2 gallon to 1 gallon of Hang Tite or Ammonyx LO or 1 quart to 1/2 quart of Ammonyx M (thick)
Rinse QUICKLY and hit it with a water based wax or water based tire dressing for a wet look
 
House-washing including Vinyl Siding, Brick, Hardie Plank or Siding and Stucco:
 
Use a watered down version of the roof wash by adding more water and using your soft wash system 
 
OR your downstream chemical injector or X-Jet on your pressure washer.  (Downstream injector:  Extend the length of your 1/4" injector pickup hose to allow you to drop it into your roof wash vat.  Most downstream injectors will pick-up a solution that will be up to 20% of your roof wash mix.  Use your 0030, 0040 or 0050 to apply soapy mixtures under eaves many stories up without needing a ladder or yellow noodle extension wand.  X-Jet:  Place roof wash mix in your container and allow the X-Jet to a diluted ratio of your mix to the house.)
 
If you need to remove a large number of spider webs or eggs that usually require brushing, use a more concentrated version of the House-wash Mix to DISSOLVE the spider webs and eggs.
 
Irrigation Rust: (Not for Rust from Metal Rust, Like Chairs or Tables or Rust Stains from Vehicle Radiators)
 
Oxalic Acid Powder or Granules 99% (Purchased locally in a 50 pound bag, white powder;  Active ingredient in Rust-Aid)
 
Mix 8 ounces up to 1 pound of Oxalic Acid per 1 gallon of  WARM or HOT Water
Add Hang Tite, Ammonyx Lo or Ammonyx M to use as a wetting agent even for horizontal surfaces.
Mix Thoroughly
Use a pump up sprayer to apply to irrigation rust.  When it hits the rust, it should bubble up.  Rinse THOROUGHLY.
DO NOT MIX WITH ROOF WASH, SODIUM HYPOCHLORITE, SODIUM PERCARBONATE OR A HIGH PH SOAP
 
Cedar Shingles, Wood Siding, etc. (2 STEPS)
 
DO NOT USE Sodium Hypochlorite or Bleach.  Sodium Hypochlorite or Bleach will permanently damage the wood and remove the natural colors and tones.
Sodium Hypochlorite or Bleach will break down the cell walls of wood or the cellulose that make the integrity of the structure of wood and plants. 
 
1.  FIRST STEP~CLEAN
     6 ounces of Sodium Percarbonate per gallon (Sodium Percarbonate purchased locally in a 50 pound bag, white powder)
     1 ounce of Caustic Soda or Sodium Hydroxide (Purchased locally in a 50 pound bag, white powder, granules or flakes)
     Hang Tite, Ammonyx Lo or Ammonyx M
     Mix THOROUGHLY
     Rinse THOROUGHLY
2.  SECOND STEP~NEUTRALIZE
     DO NOT USE SAME SPRAYER FOR BOTH STEPS.  Combination of two chemicals in first and second steps will cause combustion to occur.
     6 ounces of Oxalic Acid Powder or Granules 99% per 1 gallon of  WARM or HOT Water  (Purchased locally in a 50 pound bag, white powder;  Active ingredient in Rust-Aid)
     Hang Tite, Ammonyx Lo or Ammonyx M
     Mix THOROUGHLY
     Rinse THOROUGHLY
 
Gutter Cleaning:  Streak Lightening
 
Use PWP's Streak Lightening, available in 5 gallon buckets and larger, per Label Recommendations 
Streak Lightening is available in 5 gallon buckets, 10 gal, 15 gal, 20 gal, 25 gal, 30 gal and 55 gallon containers.
 
 
CAUTION:  TriSodiumPhosphate or TSP is a white powder often used to etch the layer of gloss on painted or shiny surfaces or frequently used as a cleaning and degreasing agent in paint preparation.
 
Avoid adding TSP to your soft-wash mixes for two primary reasons:
1.  If left to dry on glossy surfaces such as windows or shiny gutter or garage doors, TSP will cause permanent damage shiny surfaces and 'degloss' paint or glass and stain metal and cement surfaces.
2.  Use of TSP will give the possibility of violating the Clean Water Act or CWA.   If evidence of pollution by TSP or other pollutant by your company's services cause a fish kill, waterway plant death, eutrophication of nearby bodies of fresh or salt water, you may be held liable.  It is rare but can cost thousands in fines as warnings are almost never heard of.   Many states only allow the sale of a TSP substitute.  (We strongly disagree with scaring our customers....we believe in educating them)
