External house clean


J D

Recommended Posts

I done an external house clean today, along with a gutter vacuum and a gratis window clean. It took me a shorter time than I thought to complete at just 2.5hrs for £200! Im glad the couple left in the car while I was finishing up as it does look bad ! I sprayed on the chloride via my xjet and will leave the wind and rain to rinse it clean. The thing is when you clean an external pebble dash house with bleach it often looks worse than when you started. Therefore I left a note to explain to the customer that it will clean up after each rainfall!

I just taken two enquires and priced them up from looking on google maps

To check & clear gutters & downspouts then to clean all plastics.

 

Detached 4 sider for £280 (full width conservatory on the back in the way not included)

Detached 2 sider for £190

 

They will take me a lot longer than 2.5 hours to do each one so this wall cleaning marlarky seems more profitable to get into for sure. So many newish properties have filthy k-render now so I must seriously look into offering this service. Means more investment though to get the right kit for the job. Not sure if hypo is the best chem to use. :rolleyes:

I googled quats and got this...not sure how it will clean render

 

Quaternary ammonium salts are used asdisinfectants, surfactants, fabric softeners, and as antistatic agents (e.g. in shampoos). In liquid fabric softeners, the chloride salts are often used. In dryer anticling strips, thesulfate salts are often used. Spermicidal jellies also contain quaternary ammonium salts.

I was looking at algoclear pro http://www.renderclean.biz/algoclear-pro-safety-datasheet.shtml

 

Which contains a type of quats called DIDECYLDIMETHYLAMMONIUM CHLORIDE.

 

As being sold here http://mistralni.co.uk/products/didecyldimethylammonium-chloride

 

I've just sent an email to mistrial to ask for the best chem to use to clean k-render and if they new of algoclear pro and if it was just the same chem being rebranded or not.

I got out my van and scratched my head for a minute as I thought I'd caught a few branches, then I had to knock the door to explain :D I thought it was going to catapult the van back in the road :rofl: Then I had to tell him he was a fiver short on the bill when I finished. Don't think I'll be invited back there in a hurry :confused:

You talking to me ya cheeky get. Well I saw a cat sat on one of those enclosed trampolines the kids have in the garden. I said to the woman 'does he bounce on it too?' No she said. 'If he did, he'd be called Tigger' I said. I think she did a little sex wee as she giggled at my joke :cool:.

 

Apart from that it was pretty non-eventful tbf :thumbsdown:
