I called out the fire brigade when I seen a guy spraying something onto his two storey roof from the ground. It was going all over the place and I didn't know what he was spraying and with children playing below. Fire engine turned up and went inside. They told me he was spraying weedkiller on the roof but not anymore. He came over and said thanks to me as he didn't realise how dangerous it was. Don't think he will be doing it again.  🙄

Not necessarily, some of the cowboys are charging more than experienced people as too low a price would suggest they are cowboys!!! Plus they earn more 🙂

How much would you charge to soft wash that house out of interest ???

Wouldn't have the foggiest, probably ask your advice and then halve it to have a chance of getting it up here. Something I might be looking at doing as I have a load of untapped potential work that I could get. Just too old of a dog to learn new tricks but I'm working on it.

Ime a great believer in offering customers a full external clean on surface , they already know and trust you , and it’s a maximum income stream from less customers, especially commercial customers that it’s a right rigmarole to become an approved contractor with all the paperwork is a pain but if you are already on there list there is none of that .

Trouble is nowadays you're only approved for what you're approved for. The 2 big PM companies I do work for I'm approved to clean windows and gutters from the floor, with the occasional use of ladders if suitable. For me to be approved for anything else I'd have to go through the registration again for the new category. Submitting RAMS, Insurance etc, it would be easier as the H&S know us so only the odd hoop to jump through.

I am starting up in March mate, i know a lot of people who do softwashing spray water over the plants first etc and u got to be careful with them, my plan is to put covers over all plants before cleaning is started with all motors away from the cleaning area, i am also planning on cordoning the area off before application

Am i going over the top or am i doing right ? Thanks
