Title: The 'What have you cleaned today?' Thread
Post by: Blast Away on January 04, 2013, 07:51:45 pm
Not seen a thread like this so thought it might be interesting for people to write and show what they've been up from one day to the next. Show images etc and maybe it will help others to learn how those standards can be achieved and discuss how it was done and if a particular chemical was used.

I understand if people don't want to divulge secrets etc, that's fair enough.

I'll throw in a couple of images tomorrow of some concrete stairwells that we're continuing to jet wash tomorrow.

This is what we've just done, 14 of these. Horrible! Cig dimps and cat p coupled in the contained mist. Used 12'' mosmatic and turbo for edge and rinsing. Too about 25 mins to do one. The workout is pulling the hose round up and down!  :)

Donnie   with a honda or any heavy duty washer  can you fit pressure gauges onto your washer to show you what pressure you want to clean at when you adjust pressure manually , Ive seen them on some washer pics, must be usefull on some materials you have been asked to clean as not to cause damage.

yep you sure can, they are readily available , as you get experienced you wont need em though, they are useful for letting you know if your seal are still in tip top condition an aw , one off my pumps came with a pressure gauge but rarely look at it too be honest

Rob - We use Samsung Galaxy S11 phones - they can become a portable wifi device and you can tether it to your laptop - and if signal is good - internet speed will be fast. Not sure if more up to date phones have this feature.

Photobucket - upload your images there - then you just click on copy image and paste the link wherever you want the picture to be seen.

This was the busy front entrance of Croydon University Hospital. All day we had ambulances, taxis, cars, people, people, people - everywhere.

Still managed to get it done!

Clean to blue canopy
Pressure wash algae from top glass
Pressure wash underside of canopy
Clean glass and then breakdown cordoned off areas

Post by: Rob_Mac on March 02, 2013, 09:30:57 am
On the next day we had a side entrance canopy to clean, same set up but no access for the Niftylift so it was done from the ground.

When we finished I got a call to look at the Sainsbury's just down the road in Streatham - starting a roof clean tomorrow (Sunday), had to go and look at a Tesco job elsewhere, phone call to price a Sainsbury's further North and a fella from Essex rang me to do some gully vacuuming - turned that one down.

Bit of G101 Lee. Proper crusted on the algae. Mega delicate area, had a lot of the big brass at the hospital watching. In the pictures it looks quiet but at times the cars pulling up were three wide and all the way back down to the main road.

I spent all day trying to tell people why they couldn't use a closed and signed entrance, we had arrows and everything but people want to go the way they have always gone.

All done - everyone happy and onto the next job!

Just my take on the pictures...please do not take offence .

I would of thought health and safety would of called for more than a cone and a bit of tape.
Working at height with a machine using a strong alkaline/caustic solution  that could cause burns to anybody walking below.
The machine is overeaching the taped area into public domain and the banks man is not paying attention as he is on the phone/camera taking pictures.
As i say please dont take offence .I dont do big jobs it's just what i see. I am fairly new to this type of work and am always trying to improve the way i work so i am fairly critical. ???
Title: Re: The 'What have you cleaned today?' Thread
Post by: Rob_Mac on March 02, 2013, 07:17:16 pm
Chris

Where are the people walking below?
The risk assessment was passed by the head of facilities!
Where is the machine over the barrier - you would have needed to be about nine foot tall to hit the picker!
I take my work very serious and at no time whilst I recorded the work did I put the operator, pedestrian or any other party in any danger.

You seem to have a real issue with me - I don't want an apology I don't want snidey comments. I am showing some work on a thread that has been created so that people can see the works.

I'll tell you what I see when I read your posts shall I.

I see someone who does a heck of a lot of talking, most of it is complete b**locks, you tell people to not use a turbo nozzle on block, everyone else says something different but you're right!

You want to save £150.00 on building your own machine - earn another £150.00 and you don't need to try and build your own.

You've got a website with a picture on it of a chap using a blue domestic FSC - what's that about, another picture of pressure washing in trainers, walking on a roof with no safe system in place, pictures of decking and lots of other things that aren't even your work - when you get your house in order and have something to look at, maybe then you can try and pull my works to pieces.

I get the work with the NHS, Tesco, Sainsbury's, Asda, Morrisons, the Olympic park and others because I don't compromise, because I do the work properly and because I present individual risk assessments.

I never do anything to cause anyone concern and can be relied on to get the work done.

I have tried to stay away from your laughable need to comment on just about everything posted and the often just plain incorrect replies but I will be leaving this post up.

I don't wish you any ill but give it a rest.

I will continue to develop my business and keep taking on works from household names - you carry on trying to be a smart idiot and knowing everything.

Your nature may have a lot to do with where you are at in your business.

I am confident that you will have something to say about this. I wish I could say how many people from the forum have rung me to tell me how much of an idiot they see you as.

Look at the second  Robs hospital picture down...tell me what you see.
BDCS  Do you advocate tel use of a turbo nozzle to clean a whole drive by somebody who is just starting out in the job...i do not.
 BDCS Caustic or non caustic for cleaning plastic coated/ poss aluminium cladding (not aimed at you Rob but discussed in a previous post somewhere).
I really dont care about what others think. I am willing listen and learn from professionals. I actually think  you are ( one of the few) that know what you are talking about and i am always interested in your posts
Roger seems to have the wood restoration down to "t" this i would be very interested in..but his are "trade" secrets which he has took a long time to develop.Why should he share these skillis with me?
Rob i see as the "big clean up man!"tesco,hospitals etc..from him i could learn about setting the jobs up,organising working teams,health and safety,dealing with big organisations...i could learn a lot from him. But he takes my amateure observations /questions to heart...i really just say what i see or think and i am willing to be corrected,thats how i learn.

He was delivering a shed and when he arrived the customer was out so he went in the back garden, pants down and was "under starters orders" when the lady walked in. I cleaned her whole patio and her wheely bin where he eventually left his deposit ! She did manage a grim when I asked if she had to sign for "the delivery"

You wont damage double glazed windows with a pressure washer if done safely. You wouldn't want to jet it point blank on the seals, mind. But from a safe distance it is fine.
They won't dry clean mind, but to get the worst of the dirt off it is fine, or just a rinse down after pressure washing surfaces nearby.

Darren,

I would chemically strip that house. when i worked for a company in london we used to strip paint of those houses day in day out. messy job, lots of prep but easily done. if you price to use doff or similar you will price yourself out. lots of companies in london doing this type of work. all done chemically.

You dont need me ..you two have figured it out for yourselves and you have all the gear....
As  i am still listening and learning from the pro's ....Just a couple of questions tho'
The similarities between the Doff and the Vortech are what?
What do you propose to use to "blast out" 150 an at what sort of flow and pressure?
Would that be  celsius or fahrenheit?
Would you use a paint stripper on it?  
Do you think there would be much mess? If so would it need to be disposed of specially (Hazardous)?

Rob....Anybody (well nearly anybody) can blast plastic clean..too reveal the true beauty of a hand crafted piece of fine furniture such as this requires the skills of somebody who is  exceptionally focused & driven .  I consider myself to be this individual.

All the rafters were caked in dust as it used to be a factory making brake shoes. We washed everything down and had a roadsweeper clean the ground. After we finished the painters went in.

Lee - That looks like the old Mintex place - my father and brother used to clean all the windows there and blow down the insides once a year!

Most of the dust used to be Asbestos back in the day so I hope you wore full breathing kit, unfortunately in the eighties the team of cleaners were given paper masks only :o

The external of the building took us less than two days pressure washing, but then we restored the powder coated window frames and lots of stainless steel - sun screens which you can't see on the pictures - this took time as we did this by hand, slowly.

The lance is just a cheap £15 at 4 foot length I think with a 15055 Nozzle on. The purple cuff you can see is part of the hose branded with Falch. They like to put their name on everything.

Alright Ed, it will get nice and hot if you're running a 15 lpm pump yes but you may need to adjust the fuel pump so you're not burning too much fuel. Personally why get a 500 bar rated for a 250 bar pump?!

It rained non stop here yesterday.

I went to Cambridge on Thursday, by train. I know we have all seen the images of the flooding (on the telly) but it is nothing to what it looks like in real life.

The train went through some areas and both sides of the track were completely submerged, under what can only be described as a sea of water, for as far as you could see.

I am not speechless very often (not as much chatter as Chris though!!) but I was amazed. I feel sorry for those that have lost their livelihood and homes submerged and are only now getting some assistance.

There will be a hosepipe ban in the summer!!!!!

You've been to my place, we had evacuation notices last week, the Thames was only about 200 metres away from my place, that's how bad the Thames is at the moment. After yesterdays rain, most probably risen again. Couple of "villages" were cut off around here.

You're welcome to come up to mine, if you get washed away. We're on the top of the village, on a hill. If we get flooded there won't be a lot left of the rest of the country.

Nar, enjoy it. Right from meeting new clients and when the job is won to knowing how good the results will be, it's satisfaction. Especially when a previous 'contractor' has been in the past and not included the gum in the clean, going one better with the right equipment and you're on a winner with the client.

How can you ever get fed up of pressure washing. I think you may just be seeing patios?

There is always another job - it looks crap, you make it clean, people are astounded - genuinely.

I know for me it is a real mix of high level, cladding etc, roofs and then all of the low level.

It's a fantastic service to get into, even at a residential level - and as Lee says, right gear makes it a lot easier.

We didn't start with Council and supermarkets ringing us up. We grew into that ;)

I have spent eleven days working on a roof (on my own), i've done weeks pressure washing various elevations (on my own)

Bit of radio 2 or music on my noise cancelling earphones (yehhh - how many have got them ?) and away I go.

Lee @blastaway.

I was in Manchester on Monday and Tuesday watching a gig at the academy, have you cleaned all the paving from Piccadilly going up to arndale centre?

Market Street that Chris, yes. about 4500m2 done in 5 shifts, scated and gummed.


Having the right kit obviously will make jobs easier and customer satisfaction goes without saying. But the actual manual task of doing the job don’t you think at times is mind numbingly boring?

Staring at the floor for a good few hours removing gum can send you a little crazy, thinking up allsorts of things, ideas pop into your head.

Don't get bored as such but the job we are on at the moment 80 odd pieces of Teak, full restoration, does get a bit tedious, couple of days stripping & brightening, couple of days sanding & oiling. then start again with the next batch.
Doing repairs to some of the chairs is a change, anyway last 6 pieces to be sanded tomorrow (12 seater tables, heavy and bloody big) should be oiled tomorrow  as well, then all completed, started of the 6th January so bit furnitured out !!!!, start a deck wash at the weekend by Tower Bridge which will be nice & cold & wet if the weather forecasts are right!!!!

You're welcome to come up to mine, if you get washed away. We're on the top of the village, on a hill. If we get flooded there won't be a lot left of the rest of the country.

200 metres is a bit scary eh!!

Cheers Rob, shouldn't come that though, Thames down here is still high about 3ft over normal height, evac notices have been stood down of now.

Thames now about 6' above normal height, Navy are in a place called Wraysbury about 1 mile away from me helping people vacate in boats, roads etc all gone flooded, end of our road is flooded about 200 yards away from my place again, this is becoming a bit of a pain, but not as bad as some have it luckily.

Easy for us to not be concerned but I genuinely feel sorry, not only for Rog & sister in law but for them all. I think it is easy to blame the environment agency for not dredging but it is very much the same as last year but rain & not snow. Even with dredging I cannot believe it would have stopped it.

Some fella on the news tonight saying that the Thames doesn't need dredging because the rivers flow does it.

Alright fella's, been flat out all weekend.

(https://scontent-a-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-frc1/t1/1901714_10151879360566640_605501912_n.jpg)

Was supposed to have a 5 hour window on it but it got cut down to 3 hours as someone from Network Rail didn't sort out the right paperwork etc. We struggled in the wind and rain, it was freezing. Gusts blowing back, proper leg trembler! You can't see the inner sides from this angle but the underside you can see caked in algae, those inner sides were pretty much the same. We could have done with another 45 mins to an hour to do 3 more repositions with the platform(ballache)just to finish 5 of the cable rods, all main priority was done and is miles better. Doubt the council with fork out to have us back for the tiny bits left to do, too much messing about, although it was NR's fault.

We are tight on this section, a lot of that is because we all know each other, do work with each other, pass work around. What you see on the forum is only a very small part of the 'click' that you see.

We get wise a*ses coming on here all the time, wanting this and that, bouncing round the forum, trying to get their post count up, expecting us to pass on established practices and all the answers to the - How do you do this questions.

I'm glad it's a click - tends to keep the k**bheads out of the way. Now you might think I'm aiming that at you but I couldn't be because I have put a smiley at the end of this sentence ;D

Smurf,

I don't think he meant it offensively.

Don't take this the wrong way mate, but who are you. Your profile gives no website details, no one knows where your based (I don't think). Naturally people can be weary to giving out their own hard fought information to people they don't know and who could potentially be local to them and therefore direct competition.

A lot of guys on here have found cleaning methods and tried different cleaning chemicals at their own expense and on their own time.. People give out free advise on here that has cost them several several severral £s to discover.

Agree with what you are saying to a degree, its nice to know who you are talking to, however once you post its there for everyone to see, lurkers and muppets alike plus potentially the local competition. The forum should make everyone show their details full stop, that will never happen.

There is a tendancy, maybe its human nature, once someone makes a negative comment for one to retaliate. I have only just noticed 'Smurf' he added his view to Hedgehog gutter guards, I didn't bother to answer back, he has his view but the 'guard' does have its uses. He has then contributed to another post with usefull details of a ladder stand-off, Some of his other comments I agree with others I dont. 

Smurf you need to accept the forum for what it is ..

We are tight on this section, a lot of that is because we all know each other, do work with each other, pass work around. What you see on the forum is only a very small part of the 'click' that you see.

We get wise a*ses coming on here all the time, wanting this and that, bouncing round the forum, trying to get their post count up, expecting us to pass on established practices and all the answers to the - How do you do this questions.

I'm glad it's a click - tends to keep the k**bheads out of the way. Now you might think I'm aiming that at you but I couldn't be because I have put a smiley at the end of this sentence ;D

Have a good day

Thanks for the kind words & offers guys really appreciate it.
Got home yesterday and it has crept a few more metres closer so at the moment it is about 25 metres away, from what I can gather yesterday army were round putting sandbags out but ran out !!! so didn't get any, spent yesterday evening making our own the other problem we have is there is a school field at the back of our place which is now flooding at a very fast rate so if we get the rain they say is coming, then 2 water approaches  >:(

spent the morning lining up for sand to be delivered to the end of our road (this was on Sky news) then they run out of sack/bags, (The Sun paid for Jewsons to deliver 2 truck loads with 8 hippo bags on each) Managed to get 2 wheelie bins full and fill whatever bags/sacks etc we could so hopefully secured mine and 2 neighbours house's from the front water, but fields at the back and flooding with surface water now very quickly.

Not really mate, we work on a 6 month lead-in time so couldn't do them even if we wanted to, but saying that if I do get away with not being flooded and I can help the houses that are only 6 doors down etc that are flooded from me, then when they want my time is free to them, as they will have enough to contend with.

Alan had his local council complain to him saying the sticker was affecting the reflectivity of the sign. Clearly the algae that covered the sign prior to being cleaned for free wasn't affecting it.

It's quite a small store. Completely overlooked by residential properties, with more than one complainer so it was decided that to keep noise to as minimum as possible we would work out of one basket.

This has been a problem in the past with me being 120 kgs, hose drag (as it weighs off the basket, when elevated) so the basket is overweight with more than one operator and tilts out.

I have got a second machine coming down for Monday because we are on the car park side and I have some work reachable by a 60 footer and a roof below it for the 45 footer.

It seems that the noise is not as big a problem as they expected but mainly basket weight!

My RAMS cover all eventualities and working alone because there is a section in them about regularly checking in with site management if we are on our own.

I don't wee Chris, I don't poo - my body reuses all waste to infinitum.

The cameras on the store look after my van if I have to go up to the cafe, for breakfast.

I tend to get done anything low level setup, go and eat etc and then out come the hoses and I am up in the air till I finish for the day.

I love cleaning roofs

RAMS cover what happens if I am knocked unconscious, if I need assistance to come down, if I am dangling conscious or unconscious from the basket.

It is daytime works and I am burnt, it is boiling down here, been in t shirt all week but then I am a manly man, no Louie Spence here ;)

Another reason for working one man in the basket is the split flow.

The MEWP won't move if I am unconscious, unless I keel over with my foot on the pedal and I am still holding onto the joy stick - that probably isn't going to happen.

The RAMS are read, signed and agreed by all parties, with a copy held in the site office and a copy in  my works vehicle.

The pressure washer similarly won't continue to pump out water if my hand is not pressing the trigger. I tend not to drive the MEWP and pressure wash at the same time.

It's not the wild west ;D

No prob Rog

There is working alone or there is working with another MEWP within five metres of where I am working.

The principal contractor has read the RAMS, my client has passed the RAMS, my client is working next to where I am working and when he wasn't he was watching me working.

I make decisions to handle the works within the boundaries available, two could not go in the basket, someone else is working nearby and apart from a period working directly over the road (that was watched) I am now within the service yard boundaries, with barriers.

Next week I have assistance but I am glad of your concerns for me.

I don't hold hands with anyone other than my wife Chris.

Do you want to hold my hand?

The worst I've experienced was a Hinara 21m spider, that was simply terrifying at maximum elevation and outreach. Genuinely feared for my life on that thing.

My most experienced guy hated it also, at one point he got out of he basket and sat on a ledge, pleading with me to move the machine so it was more stable, but we couldn't.

I think these things are great, if treated with respect.

MEWP brought in to gt us across two roofs to complete a section today. This is a 135 - not big enough!!!!

This is the biggest machine I have ever seen and used, 22 tonnes and telescopic axles that made a 30 foot footprint when all the way out. Absolutely enormous piece of kit but completely useless.

You can just see the darker area we were trying to get to in the last picture. What we gained on the outreach was swallowed up by the footprint. Bigger is not necessarily always better.

Yes it is delivered to site by an eco friendly carbon neutral electric vehicle  ( with specialist operator). The only downside is delivery can only be arranged between the hours of 4/5 am. Monday to Friday . Invoicing for the said hire period usually take place the following friday around 5.00pm ..with the operator demanding payment on your door step.

Roger, deck looks very nice.

I have been reading your other threads about using deck-prep and net-trol, do you do this process BEFORE pressure washing the deck? Or do you just use these chemicals without pressure washing?

Also do u mind me asking what oils you use?

Many thanks
Title: Re: The 'What have you cleaned today?' Thread
Post by: Roger Oakley on April 25, 2014, 01:01:13 pm
Prep-Deck is a stripper so used to remove stains, oils etc.
Net-Trol is a brighten used after the Prep-Deck, it can be used as a cleaner if you wanted, you adjust the dilution rates etc. If using Prep-Deck you HAVE to use the Net-Trol or similar to neutralise the wood.

For both the above, they are used as part of the cleaning or stripping process so a pressure washer is still used.

The brand of oils we use is Colourtrend.

Post by: Mitchellmoxo on April 25, 2014, 02:49:04 pm
Roger,

appreciate the response, many thanks.

so are you applying chemicals, allow wait time and then pressure washing afterwards? Or are you pressure washing first and then applying chemicals?
Title: Re: The 'What have you cleaned today?' Thread
Post by: Roger Oakley on April 25, 2014, 03:30:18 pm
Pre-wet the surface first, apply chemicals, allow to dwell then (dwell time will depend on what you are using) then pressure wash off, then do a heavy rinse so that everything is washed away.

That's quite interesting because the guy who was dropping it off told us the story.

The engineer was either fixing it/servicing it in their yard or on a job and it did have a fault and tipped, flinging him into the roundabout and oncoming traffic.

The guy died what must have been (for a very brief moment) a horrible death. The family have not been paid out yet, which just adds to it.

The delivery guy told us this and then left us to it.

I said to my guy - up you go then!

From what we were told by a ipaf instructor the machine was only a week old and was being looked over by the engineer and the newer machines don't have limit switches but it's ran by software and that was dodgy letting it go beyond its outreach.

The machine was up at his full height when it went over, 29 year old father of two :(

Think it's still waiting to go to court ect.

9am-1pm last bank hol monday then 9am-4pm the following day and jumped on the wet pour on the Wednesday.
Obviously not as much moss in the inner but still moss there to come out and also the green paint was coming up. It's been down for 7 years. Told them this would happen in the clean and asked if they have plans to re-paint it all, they haven't but didn't mind the loose paint coming up with the moss. After pics wouldn't have been anything to be show off, they just had safety at mind. The lines were fine under pressure, it was just the green that was a poorer quality of paint.

Hi mate yep looks pretty much identical in terms of spec.

I used a 21" mosmatic to get the bulk of it off then went over with a lance. Using a lance alone would of produced the exact same result but would of taken a bit longer.

Post by: Smudger on June 01, 2014, 10:08:56 am
I made it slightly stronger than directed ie. 30 to 1 instead of 40 to 1

Yes we still had to pressure wash off using vario nozzle on quite a wide angle, it all came off without any hassle, although the chimneys were awkward as the telescopic lance was rubbish  ::)roll

I not sure if using the algoclear made it easier to remove or not ( lack of experience ) but the builder specified a fungicidal wash, so that's what he got.

1 hour to apply, and it took 4 hours to wash down

Isn't it supposed to foam ???   Used brand new back pack, so no chance of any g101 residue from previous work..


Sorry jet away I used about 1.5 litres of algoclear

Was it the algoclear pro. Did it remove a lot of the algae on its own or did that take a bit of work with the lance afterwards?

No didn't take any off, but it was a quick brush on, yes it came off (all of it) with a single pass of the lance

I'm guessing there's some dormers on the front of the house which adds to the times. I'd want £1k to clean that roof.

You'll spoil the newly cleaned conservatory though Lee!

Then he can re-do it again.  ;)

I wish !!

That's the niftylift 170' we had no rear access but it could get over the ridge tiles so could clean the rear.

Yes so far it's been able to do everything we require

Some great work there Darren, if I can ask do you use anything on the oil stain ie resiblock OR or maybe 0T8? Also when the drives have weeds in like it looked like on a couple of those drive cleans do you use any pre weed killer as such? Also do you ever use hypo on a block paved drive clean. Thanks

Post by: Smudger on July 26, 2014, 05:09:24 pm
Thx !!

The oil was removed with ot8 it's never let me down yet

No I never pre treat drives but I always turbo nozzle than FSC to get the roots out, yes I hypo afterwards if the area had lots of moss, algae or lichen.

On the roof I pre treated with algoclear at the back to help start the process 10 days before cleaning applied with scrubbing brush converted for WFP - we also applied another treatment after cleaning

Cheers Darren
The reason why i asked about the Hypo on block driveway was because when cleaning a drive the other day a gentleman got chatting to me and said every march he spays his block driveway with hypo 3:1 mix leaves it 25 mins then washes of. Says it takes him 1 hour tops for 100sq drive. He did point out he has no weeds so no need for the turbo nozzle but he believes the hypo helps keep the weeds at bay. Makes sense i suppose. His sand loss is minimal this way he says.

Re the Sandstone photos, cleaned, then hypo, long dwell time due to the amount of lichen, cleaned off again and that was it. The after photo is the next morning, so surface is dry and that's how good the paving looked, not just from the clean but decent Sandstone, even though it is bit busy pattern wise.

You can use hypo on sandstone, like you can use it on any other hard surface. It wont affect the sandstone. Just use the same hypo rules regarding run off/plantlife etc..

As Matt has said it's fine to use on Sandstone,  just don't use Hydrochloric acid (Brick Acid) on Sandstone or any natural stone for that matter. In fact before you use an Acid check to see if the stone will take the use of X acid, some do some don't. Alkaline's are usually fine though.

Citric Acid will reverse the staining but you have to be quick, Ox would most probably do the same.
When I say quick I mean with-in 10 min of the stain happening.

Unfortunately it does stain mate, we've all done it at some point, but you could do no worse then get some Net-Rol it's what we use to brighten decking, and is citric based, I don't know what size containers it comes in, (as in smaller sizes) as I buy the 15lt tubs, I think they might do a 1lt size though but not sure. Old stains are hard to shift as the hypo has had time to set/eat the face of the lead. If you are working with loads of lead, maybe mask/cover with polythene or similar ? prior to working.

In the video is a 15055 at 100 bar. We've melted a few spots away on this school but they were aware beforehand. This tarmac in the video was the stronger parts of the school, other areas were ridiculously soft, as Lee Kenny found today blasting hole big enough for his to stand in.  8) ;D ;D ;D

We use impregnating sealers when we seal limestones and sandstones ...over time we think they last longer and course less problems than high solid sealers. If you are getting into sealers maybe it's something you should look at.
 Just something we have picked upon after trying different products on different surfaces.

I did try rob honest ! Always like to go that little bit extra, but unfortunately I don't know what the black is, I tried hypo but as you can see it didn't really shift it, this is a converted school built in 1877 and unfortunately the brick is really soft and the window surround/sill is virtually crumbling away it has areas of errosion ( big flaked areas 3 to 4 mm deep ) and didn't feel confident that I could clean it up without further damage.. :(

It wasn't like that.

It looks like it's in really good order from that picture and if i'm honest I thought it was a newer building made to look older than it is.

That discolouration is coming off the sill so it must be something to do with the sandstone.

The discolouration might be that at some point there was metal window frames? so years of oxidisation from those maybe?
Title: Re: The 'What have you cleaned today?' Thread
Post by: Rob_Mac on October 22, 2014, 08:14:16 am
That front one looks like it still is mate. So probably the paintwork has been in disrepair, caused the problem and then it has been repainted but too late for not marking the stone.

Added - Darren I didn't see the loose stone underneath the brickwork but that is holding water and drawing up the brickwork as well and I would suspect that that side of the building doesn't get the main sunlight.

The fact that they have painted two cricket stumps on the wall tells me they don't see the value of the building. Just read some interesting articles on cause and effect of damage to stone that are a little bit bigger than the obvious.

Did not have any caustic or hydrofluoric to remove the carbonation. They are getting reduced and capped as they are knackered anyway.
Did not go onto the roof …it was all done by helicopter with a big nozzle.

Any biological washing machine powder…use dry on a wet stain . Make into a thick paste for a dry stain..keep applying till it goes. Remember Tarmac is oil based..so keep an eye on the washing powder for softening the Tarmac. The enzymes in it "eat" the stain.

J I wouldnt take it to heart mate, it's the same as every section, if you ask on the CC sections how to use Sod Met you'll get told to do training and it's too dangerous etc.
Same on windows, same on hard floors.

Hypo isn't something to be messed around with hence the replies, and something people have put time and effort into researching the best and safest ways to use it.

I think the question has started to pop up over and over again and becomes tiring for some.

However it isn't rocket science and general precautions and sensibility will see you ok, but research first.

You won't need it for a moss covered wall, it's not necessary, it's also called Sodium Hypochlorite.

Rob, you're shying out on the walking, think your legs have gone ;)

Chris, I gathered that but the roof is nackered, hence my question, does it not cause further damage, especially if walked up on?
Title: Re: The 'What have you cleaned today?' Thread

Yep ..walking roofs you will always damage some tiles. I  price for replacing some…sometimes the moss "hides" broken  and cracked ones. That roof is Knackered.

Just don't use it on anything aluminium…window frames, conservatorys. Make sure the back pack and poles are thoroughly washed.

No, been introduced to something better  ;D

I'm now using  A8 tfr - it's a non caustic cleaner with wax.

Brill with a snow foam or applied via a pump sprayer or backpack, it's really getting into the grime and on the vans is removing those stubborn black streaks, with a quick rinse to finish for a nice shine

G101 tends to leave a dull finish, hence the changeover

Hi Darran, hope you don't me sharing but when using A8 tfr you have to be very careful with the dilution rates and dwell times as it contains sodium hydroxide which is a really corrosive ingredient, i agree that its a great cleaner but is very similar to G101 and has to be used with extreme caution, i would also agree with Chris Scott and don't let A8 tfr anywhere near aluminum surfaces as it will chemically burn and corrode soft metal surfaces. Just to follow on Darran talk to Chris Scott as he has a  product called WVD 100 which is far safer and very effective for deep cleaning metal surfaces.

It just shows that people will use anything without thinking about what damage it may cause.

If we use our three step products on Caravans etc - it will restore the faded surface to "like" new condition and protect further with our Hydrophobic coating.

It needs to be applied by hand - and takes time - but it is excellent.

Unfortunately we are not geared up to retail it  ???

Lawsuit waiting to happen over here but standard practice throughout europe, it's not safe or sensible to dodge health and safety regs.
Title: Re: The 'What have you cleaned today?' Thread
Post by: Smurf on July 27, 2015, 03:19:43 pm
Normal working practice doesn’t mean it's a safe working practice that's for sure.

At least it's a learning curve for some not to fall foul of working height regs etc as if anyone had fallen off that roof or through one of those skylights I dread to think what would have happed. Some firms have been reported to HSE by concerned passers by too and been taken to court and fined heavily for their unsafe working practises.

I know it's tempting to cut corners to remain compeditive on price and some think H&S is bullpoope but that is how bad things can happen and sadly do every year.

No the pressure keeps it up  ;D
I did try having a ball valve on the end of the hose but that got really heavy after awhile. These twin lances are great as you can adjust the pressure on the go, I'm going to put longer straight pipes on it and swap it to left handed then it should be perfect.

"Eco friendly bacterial detergent then soft wash"

Desmococcus olivaceus (green Algae)  is not a bacteria…why use a  anti bacterial liquid ?
Why use a detergent on algae it is not a  "dirt"?
"Soft washing" is the application of chemicals by low pressure….. Why use a chemical to remove a chemical ?

What was wrong with "pressure washing" the wall and then using a biocide afterwards?

But saying that I am always really interested  in new  methods. It's how we progress. I have been wrong many times before.
It's mainly the "Eco friendly bacterial detergent" I am not comfortable with ….maybe a dodgy supplier? It sounds like labelling for Fairy liquid. Kills germs and breaks down grease on dishes.

  Hi Matty, a simple solution is a bucket of water and a stainless steel scouring pad, its best to use 40grm or 60grm s/s pads for this application, just dip the s/s scouring pad into the water and proceed to scrub the tyre marks which will completely disappear from the kerb, these scouring pads are more effective than using a 3000psi hot pressure washer in solving your problem.

Chris,

I have stopped sharing my knowledge on the forum but as you sent me a boatload of photos on this project and you posted it on here I came up with the following!   I did a little more research and as such assumed what we are  looking at here are 6" square earthenware relief moulded tiles below the dado rails, also in 6" sections.    These were popular in the period 1870-1910 ish.  The glaze is frequently referred to as 'majolica'  as they have a copper tinted lead based finish.   Before you consider proceeding is that whilst the decoration is enhanced by the pooling of the glaze it is relatively 'soft' and particularly prone to crazing.  There would have been initially barely discernible fissures in the surface of the tiles since the day these left the factory rather like the hidden fissures in poilseed porcelain today.   The wall surface has clearly been painted over time after time with coats of whitewash or more recently with a water based polymer.   Consequently the bone dry earthenware interior will have sucked the paint into the crazing which is what appears to have happened in the photo if you look at the dado border.  So whilst the surface paint would be relatively easy to remove the resultant white 'veining' would be rather more of a challenge.    Furthermore, as I mentioned to you yesterday, I  can only speculate in respect of the damage to the tiles disguised by the paint.   Craven Dunhill do an excellent job on repro tiles and reproducing encaustics but my view is that these tiles would be impossible to replicate - not least because the hazards of using lead glazes were known as early as the 1890s being replaced by lead 'frits' by 1913.   What a fantastic project this would be to win - but, nonetheless, like anything else worth doing, lots of hidden difficulties.

Duly noted….I have quoted to " remove the paint' to this  (test patch) standard whilst wearing a short mini skirt.  Any hazing ,cracks,repairs are down to them. The test patch will be agreed on by all concerned and the "sealed up" and untouched till the end of the project. I have also suggested the one complete stair well is stripped to give a true indication of the  amount of "damage"
As you know sometimes thing look a hundred times worse cleaned.

Post by: Smudger on October 23, 2015, 04:46:37 pm
My work comes in from website,being local ( around here very few invest in having a van - never mind sign writing ) for personal reccomendations

My concern was that this roof is old, and heavily mossed - from my experience it's a real pig to remove without cranking up the power this I felt could lead to further damage to the tiles - you can see in one picture a huge clump of grass - the bleach was applied in an attempt to kill the moss and "shrivel" it to aid removal, it pretty much had that effect

People under estimate quite how well things clean.

When I started 5 years ago I offered pressure washing but only had a little 4litres per minute machine and quickly got fed up of cleaning 1 drive per day.

Now I have a great set up from Rutland pumps, cost about £1700 all in.
Then I since bought a little box trailer etc to save me lifting everything out, but the difference is unreal.
I can now clean 3/4 drives a day (based on 2/3 car drives.

Mike, I'm wondering now how often will that tower of yours be actually used?
Reason being I've cleaned some real awkward jobs whereby if wanting to use a tower would not be a viable option due to restrictive access/hard landscaping issues etc etc

Takes us about 5 mins to put up, we have a big trailer which it's strapped to the top of.

We've used it about 3 out of 7 jobs we've done, if we can't use it due to access then we don't use it (but at least we have it for when we can use it)

It's a good selling point with the customers, we tell them we don't just use poles,  we get up high and clean them by hand, which takes longer ( so unfortunately we have to charge more) :)

Well spend some money on the kickboards and outriggers they are cheaper, safer and more reliable than illegal immigrants and dwarfs ;D ;D

Very nice, not as nice as the new one that they brought over for testing  ::)roll

I hate the m22 fittings ( quick release for me every time ) but they perform very well, easy to use and move they run off a 6 kva genny and get seriously hot - even takes off road paint, which was handy as all the roads were double yellow except where the van was parked  ;D

Thanks smudger, I did enquire a while ago about buying a thermatech rather than a doff as it looked better but had to put it on the back burner when my health started going tits up.

Still like you say can come in very handy for parking  on yellows...what yellows mr traffic warden ;D

I don't get involved in repairs or re-pointing joints myself.

That's one of the reasons why I prefer not to use a pressure washer myself on pavers with dodgy joints as can make it look a mess afterwards.  Fine If they are warned in advance and they are not bothered that a lot of the blown mortar will come out I may then still use a washer. Up to them afterwards to get it sorted if they can be arsed which most are not that bothered.

Post by: Aqua Power Solutions on August 05, 2016, 09:00:04 pm
We always  inspect and advise the customers  of the standard of their hard surfaces prior to cleaning
If the mortar is not great then use low pressure and heat but charge accordingly

Post by: Smudger on August 08, 2016, 07:03:18 am
cost - to buy they are around 7k for the basic machine or £375 + vat plus pallet delivery each way  you get the machine for a week but the majority of cleans for brick restoration are a day, maybe 2 so we hire either nilfisk  or ipc steamers which produce around 120 degrees and cost £65 per day hire.

the next brick restoration job i might hire the thermo for a week just to see if its better on the initial clean and stubborn parts where at present we need to re apply the cleaning solution

No offense taken Darren  ;)...we had more or less finished,people started arriving for a course early so had to call back, but by then most of the red had gone.

first job so really just on a learning curve...but really enjoy the pride in the job & desire to do a good job.
Thanks for all the tips on here (well pics etc the tips aren't readily shared as much as the window cleaning side  ::)roll )
