  8. One of the things I have always wanted to do was to have my wife speak at one of my training schools. It just so happened that her busy schedule allowed her to do this and I am so thankful she did.
  9. This past weekend we had our Difference Maker school here in Houston Texas.

  10. Welcome aboard Phil, thanks for joining. Let me know if I can help.
  11. Here is a video of me using the Kingslinger Soft Wash System at my house showing the kind of reach you can get.
  12. The new Kingslinger Soft Wash System is a great system with a small foot print. Great for putting on a Truck Rig or Trailer where space is limited. Perfect soft wash pump system for house washing, building washing, roof cleaning. We also other soft wash equipment you can check out at our Pressure Washer Store

  14. Command higher prices for your battery stain and rust jobs. Here is a typical sales track we use: Battery stain sales track Selling Battery Stain Removal jobs: "Battery stains are unlike any other stain a homeowner could have. Battery stains are 31-50% sulfuric acid in concentration and even though concrete is alkaline, it does not have the power to neutralize those stains. So, the acid remains active for many years. Every time it gets wet, the water reactivates the acid, which dives it deep into the concrete and spreads on the surface. This is why you see the orange battery burn run down the concrete. EPA, stormwater compliance and regulatory officials consider these stains hazardous, corrosive, toxic and carcinogenic. Even when dry, the particles can be kicked up in to the air, leading to respiratory issues. It can also be tracked in the house, carpet, etc. (this is where I ask the homeowners if they have walked through it and then walked into their house... if they have, I will recommend to have their tiles and carpets cleaned). So, the active battery stains can eat through an entire 6" slab of concrete, promoting premature deterioration of the concrete slab, ultimate leading to a tear out and replace situation. Maximum fines for homeowners who have hazardous stains going into the storm drains can be up to $37,500 PER DAY.” We can fully neutralize the battery stains, turning the sulfuric acid into sodium sulfate, which is basically as non toxic and benign as table salt. (You do this by putting down F9 Double Eagle Degreaser at 8:1, sometimes stronger). The stain will be put in check and never reactivate again or cause damage to your concrete unless you get more acid on it. White stains from the concentrated battery acid will remain, and you can normally get 85-95% of the remaining orange acid burn (realistically you'll get 99%). The concrete will be clean, bright and much newer looking. So: 1. Battery stains are hazardous, toxic, corrosive and carcinogenic. Battery acid is 31-50% sulfuric acid and extremely dangerous. 2. The battery acid stain must be neutralized immediately into a non-hazardous state (use F9 Double Eagle, 5:1 to 8:1). F9 DE turns Sulfuric Acid into Sodium Sulfate. 3. Water will reactivate the battery stain. You can burn your feet if you walk through it and you don’t want animals or kids playing in that area. If the battery stains are white and dry, the flakes can turn into dust and become airborne. This can be deadly for your health and cause lung damage. 4. If not neutralized these stains will continue to grow and expand, reaching deep into the slab and the orange may eventually drain into storm drains. This will compromise the strength of the concrete and could result in steep fines to the homeowner. ~ A simple PH test can help confirm the acidity, alkalinity or neutral PH of the concrete. You normally want to test the “white” part of the stain as this will be the most concentrated acidic area. Selling regular rust removal and fertilizer rust stain removal jobs 1. Rust will damage and oxidize the surface it is formed on. 2. Rust will continue to harden over time and become more difficult to remove. 3. Other rust removers will etch the concrete, permanently removing the cream and leaving a “scar.” 4. The only other options to remove the rust (on concrete/hard surfaces) is to grind, sandblast, bead-blast, scarify, coat, or tear out and replace. 5. All these options result in damage or are more costly than hiring YOU.
  15. From Craig Harrison What’s the difference between F9 Double Eagle and F9 Groundskeeper? Groundskeeper is a product to use if you don't have thick built up grease and oil, but you DO have oil stains just beneath the surface, dirt, tiremarks, shopping cart marks, light rust stains, coffee stains etc. this is a MAINTENANCE cleaner, which means accounts like Walmart, Costco, Drive Thru’s etc and anything with Industrial Strength Concrete- Stadiums, etc. this is not for residential concrete. F9 GK will get the concrete super clean, and that clean will last longer than if you used high pH cleaners. If you have thick oil, food grease and oils on top of the concrete surface, F9 Double Eagle is our "Double Purpose" Cleaner/Degreaser and Neutralizer. This is an excellent product to remove the thick and for concrete maintenance with an alkaline, high pH product. DE is also used to neutralize low pH products, like our F9 Efflorescence and Calcium Remover (F9 Efflo). For maintenance accounts where want to make the concrete "Pop" and keep them looking cleaner longer, use our low pH cleaner F9 Groundskeeper. For those types of accounts you could pretreat the thick stuff with Double Eagle, clean the oils down to the surface of the concrete, rinse off the oils, then use your F9 Groundskeeper over everything and surface clean. Dwell time is only a couple minutes and it doesn't matter if you use hot or cold water. Most guys try both products and see what works best for them. Groundskeeper pulls out caustics in the surface and subsurface levels and brings the surface pH back down closer to neutral. The chemical reaction of GK makes the concrete more white and has more of a hydrophobic action when stained. If it does become stained the stains release easier than when they are repeatedly cleaned with high pH cleaners. The problem with high pH cleaners is that they build up in/on the concrete and pull more dirt/dust/sand and grime into the surface. Even after cleaning, the concrete can have a dingy look to it but using high ph cleaners is definitely necessary for topical oily buildup. So basically, treat thick oils with DE first and clean them off. Rinse and while wet put down 10:1 GK or recommended dilution. Dwell 5 min and surface clean. OR, For maintenance cleaning sidewalks like Chic-Fil-A’s, wet with water and go 10:1 with F9 GK. Dwell 5 min and surface clean.
