Great info as usual guys...I added PW to my lawn business 2 years ago and it has been a great add on service. This forum along with ptstate.com is a great place to learn.

Living in the Portland, OR area, there is a lot of emphasis on environmentally safe treatments. Using the roof and excessive moss and black algae as an example. Does anyone have any take on WashSafe Roof Wash or any other eco friendly chemistry and or is it just better to stick with the chemical solutions commonly used? Basically, is there an eco friendly wash detergent that can really do the job, without the worries of bleach streaking and such?

What specific brands of chemicals and/or surfactants do the pros use on vinyl siding? I currently use regular jo-max and bleach to clean my home. Please advise.

Do you have a suggestion for washing a wood shingle ocean front home that gets a weekly coating of grit and grease from the sea? I would like to be able to stand on the ground and wash it with a soapy water spray. The house is not stained, it just gets a bit greasy after a big storm. I have been using an orchard sprayer but it doesn't work very well.
Thanks for reading this and any suggestions you might have. This island is only accessible by boat which makes hiring people to do various tasks a challenge.

Yep I am confused. I assume you are using chemicals for the cleaning rather than pressure? Why do you need the pressure washer at all if you are using only 100psi?? Can't you just use the hose with a sprayer?
