Recommended Posts

I've done a few of these over the last few weeks on houses using my brush and pole system. Then drying down by putting a cloth over my brush. I've also seen people mention pressure wAshing them with an extended lance, but couldn't find any on search. So thought i'd ask what method you guys use.

All depends how bad they are I suppose as you are not going to get the same results using a washer than you would say restoring badly stained plastics by hand. I know this from first hand that's was why I bought a power lance in the first place but found it to be useless on certain jobs. Can also cause damage to plastics, joints, force water into the loft space and not to mention bloody heavy/whipy to uses. Customers also don't like me blasting the crap out of their homes :D

 

The old ways still work alright Davey but the old ways take three times longer and are three times less profitable!

Half a job :D

 

So whilst you are on a job when it don't come clean using your washer to the standard the customer expects do you then say it will cost them more to get rid of the tiger strip staining?:rolleyes:

 

I find spraying TFR on the really filthy fascias , quick scrub with a Viking brush, then pressure washing off does the trick!

Of course the removal of tiger stripes is extra! A lot extra!!!!!!!

Yeah, but you don't know if tiger stripes will come off with a brush until you tackle them. On fascias they only show up where the bracket is.

 

Think I'm waffling on here.....:laugh:

Agree about not knowing if tiger stripes will come off with a wfp brush or washer but most don't without using other cleaning methods. Disagree about tiger strips only being below the brackets which is the most common place but I've cleaned many fascias with staining all along them. :P

Yes, meant to say that the most common place on a fascia for tiger stripes is where the gutter bracket is.

So chaps how do you go about trying to get tiger strips off fascias where you can't get to them by ladder like say above a conservatory?

 

Paint brush with white paint on it on the end of a pole. :whistle:

I usually explain that sometimes they are so stained you can't get it off, everyone has been happy with that so far.

 

I find my long pressure washing lance works a treat on most, those that don't just need a bit of water and a good brushing, then use long reach lance.

 

Worked for me so far, but I am getting a wfp next week, so will give that a go, thinking I will get a second brush for it to use to apply chemicals if needed, then maybe pressure wash it off or wfp it off.
