  1. Our Houston Texas Pressure Washing School is still going strong. We just completed our July training and looking forward to our August school on August 14,15. Visit out pressure washing school website for more information and get registered.
  2. Our Houston Pressure Washing and Roof Cleaning School is in full swing again this year. We just completed our April training w R Bufffington from Texas attending. Please be sure to visit our web site at https://www.pressurecleaningschool.com/events/ for all our future events, training, and classes. Our next Houston Pressure Washing School is May 14th and 15th. Call or text me at 2818833630 if you have questions or need more information.
  3. I have revamped my online university for those wanting to start a pressure washing business. I have classes on House Washing, Bidding, Roof Cleaning, Driveway Cleaning, and more. Classes range from $99.00 to $179.00 and there is a quiz you can take after each class. Also a certificate can be printed out showing you complete the class. Check it out at https://www.cleanersuniversity.com
  4. When setting up your soft wash dedicated pump or downstream injector you may want to install bulk head fittings at the top and then a drop tube down into the tank. this allows you to draw from the top of the tank and not have bulk head footings at the bottom. The only bulk head fittings you want at the bottom are for water feeding the pressure washer.
  5. Whenever you have to install bulk head fittings in a tank, you always have to drill a hole using a hole saw. The plastic shavings will drop into the tank and if you don't vacuum them out them you could get them into your pump causing damage. Here's a little tip and trick for Keeping Plastic Shavings Out of Your tank.
  6. My first free Houston Pressure Wash Training Event started back in 2014 and we had over 50 people in a room that could only hold about 35. I was amazed and thankful for all the new contractors that came out to learn about the Pressure Washing business. When I was starting a pressure washing business, we did not have this type of training available. WE basically had to learn on our own. Make mistakes and learn from it. Forums like this one, not to mention Facebook weren't even thought of back then. From time to time I'll post pictures from some of the events through out the years, sort of like a pressure washing event library and hopefully maybe leave a little detailed description of what was going on in the picture. Hope you Enjoy. The picture in this post, is from 2018. Patrick Clark led us in a small group discussion as we group the attendees in small groups and discussed various aspects of each persons business. It was great seeing guy's that in some cases competitors in the same time, discuss different methods of Soft Washing, Marketing, Sales, and other challenges in each business model.

  9. If your looking into getting into Soft Washing houses and roofs, here is a great little system for you. Comes with the pump, hose, hose reel, gun, nozzles, AND the Dougeanator mixing system. No longer do you have to batch mix, you can now have the system blend your bleach soap and water for you at the desired mix percentage you need for the surface you are cleaning. More information and ordering can be done here https://www.dougruckerstore.com/products/gunslinger-soft-wash-system/
  10. I was called out for an Oil Stain Removal at this home in Tomball Texas located outside of Houston. The homeowner had tried a wide variety of products, all store bought. They had all tried pressure washing using high pressure and muriatic acid was also tried. The problem with using most store bought products is they will not work. Most are only strong enough for mild degreasing and are not practical for heavy oil stain treatment. The use of acid products do nothing for oil, and in fact when used in wrong strength, can etch the concrete. Etching the concrete means it removes layers of the cream, and will expose the aggregate in the mix. While it can seem expensive to have a professional company like ours come out and remove the oil and hydro carbons, it can actually save you more money in the long run from causing damage that can't be repaired. At very least, call or text us at 2818838470 and we will be happy to offer any guidance we can. We hate to see it when damage is caused by the ole throw everything at it but the kitchen sink. Our oil stain treatment services are completely safe and will not harm your property.
  11. Here is a picture of a Soft Washing Entry Way Houston Texas job we did this week in Conroe Texas. Many people would think the entry way was painted, but it was not. We cleaned using our Soft Washing cleaning process and saved there customer a few hundred dollars in not having to repaint. If you have an home or business you think needs to be repainted, please call or text us at 2818838470 and we'll be hoary to evaluate your property for cleaning.
  12. One of my favorite products to use for oil stains is the Eat Oils BT200....it does a great job of removing oil stains, but you must be patient with it. It's not like a traditional degreaser. It has microbes that eat the oil and grease. It also does a great job on mold and mildew. Normal dwell time is 45 minutes to 1 hour. If you have any questions post them here.
  13. Releasing my new degreaser surfactant cleaner in a couple weeks. This product is great for cleaning grease and oil stains, gutter stripes, and can be added to your house and roof wash mix.

  15. Did a little pressure washing in Kingwood Tx yesterday outside of Houston Tx.
