I hate power washing

What a pain power washing is. Setting up and fighting hoses. Trying to get all the nooks and crannys of a house. Takes me forever to do the job to my satisfaction.

I don't know how you guys do it.

Power-washing has been canceled ( as far as washing homes is concerned) soft-washing is the way to go. Alot faster, more effective and you don't use ladders.

I suppose it does... Doug, I think I saw you said not to use "Out door bleach" but use regular bleach.. Is that correct? I used regular bleach and I really didn't see a nice melt away of mold like when I used the outdoor stuff on my house.

Well if the outdoor stuff works for you then by all means use it...I just never had good success with it, (tried it onc)

When using bleach your dilution has a lot to with how well it will clean, and your dilution is predicated on the size of your machine, hose length, type of surface being cleaned, how dirty it is, and which application method you are using, e.g. downstream, x jet, dedicated pump, etc etc.

It all comes from experience.

Some cleaners do have shelf life that can hinder the affectivness.
