    I don't do pressure washing but this geeza wants the creme walls on his house cleaned might seem stupid but would bit of chemical like virosol and my water fed pole system get it off? I've also gotta clear gutters and clean all UPVC round the house

    I did one very similar on the fascias last year.. came up great ..virosol sprayed on brush

    never done walls though ...

    but would think it would work...

    you know me....

    Id sneak up and have a crack at a little section first..

    that reminds me I have a fsg on a bungalow next time its a good job he doesnt ask for the walls as the render is crapppy just keeps coming off ...

    Ive kept off buying a good power washer til I get the job for it....

    but holding them out so the pressure isnt so bad does the trick..

    any way good luck..

    when you mention walls and it is a very big house cheapie gets his running shoes on:rofl:

    you probs have to be careful the paint doesnt come off too..

    Thats the trick with these jobs I find. Most of them don't even need any fancy cleaners, just something to scrub with (brush/sponge) and a splash of fairy will do the job.

    I had one green facia which caught me out once, it was like it was baked on, it was so hard it was tearing my sponge up. But most will usually come off with a scrub with whatever.
