Roof Cleaning set up in Lexington KY

We downsized our roof cleaning rig to fit on a 3x4 poly pallet to slide in and out of a truck bed. This is a nice compact size. 65 gallon tank, 200 ft 1/2 inch plyovic hose and 6.5 hp Honda powering the Udor Zeta pump.

Whats does roof cleaning cost per sq ft? I have a roof with that discoloration and dont even know what something like that cost! Im sure the chemical would be environmentally friendly because I have shrubs and lawn around the building. Thanks for any info!

Mike, that's a sweet set-up. I like the compact size! Have you had any leakage into your truck bed? If so, will the bed liner hold up to it?

Line-X holds up to just about everything except brake fluid.

This one is on it's third season and have only had to replace a regulator. I don't rinse it either. I like it. Shoots well.

Michael,
How big a part of your business is roof cleaning? Are you doing it daily or just a few times per week?

You said you "downsized". What was your previous set up?

I'm just trying to get an idea of what kind of workout that pump set up is getting.

I have never used the gas engine/pump set up like that before. I currently have two 12 volt pumps and an All Flo air diaphram pump.

Brian

Probably 65 roofs a year within a 7 month period. Still educating folks here that you can actually clean a roof.

Downsized the footprint. Was using a 125 gallon tank.

We will look into the air pump when this one dies. Just not too keen on the size of air compessor I will have to find room for.

I may even consider the higher flow Delavans again. Just don't like batteries and duty cycle of electic pumps.

Right now, this pump shoots well and keeps me off most roofs.
