We started on this 15 building condo roof cleaning this morning. I partnered up with Greg (SplashanDash) on this one. He sprayed today and we got 4 of the two story units done and 4 of the one story, also. Hopefully the weather will hold out and we can get the remaining 7 buildings completed tomorrow.

We're starting on a 3 story tile roof cleaning project for a local apartment complex next Monday.....Busy, busy, busy!!!

Looks Good Don,

What tip are you using in pic 4?

Pic 4 is a classic. Ground person keeping the plants and vegetation wet with water while the chems are hitting the roof above. All Seasons Exteriors and Splash N Dash...a deadly combo.

Thumbs up guys! :Smiley-2010:

Thanks guys......I think Greg was using a #4040. That's what it looks like to me, anyway.

Nice

No rain gutter at all, do you still cover everything if there's rain gutters. Met Greg in Tampa, nice guy

If there's gutters, everything is watered and the downspouts get flooded.
No tarps when gutters are present overhead.

Don how many gallons would you say you flood the downspouts with?

Whatever it takes......just depends on what it drains to and how dry it is. At $3/1,000 gallons around here, it's probably costing the homeowners a $1.50 or less for the entire process.

Dang thats alot of tarp. You probably need a seperate trailer just for the tarps.

So on a windy day...or if there is a slight breeze a blowing...how do you keep the tarps from lifting off the hedges/bushes? Do you anchor the tarps with anything Don?

Hi Carlos,

If the wind is anywhere over about 15 mph, we usually try to reschedule the job. If it's just a little breezy, we'll use bungy straps, clips and even small rocks to hold the tarps down. Once they have weight on top of them (rocks), we pool water into the low spots for additional weight.
