Wednesday's Wash'n

We usually wash a house on Wednesday.

But this week it found us in Republic Mo doing a small media blasting job. Customer is working hard to get his ride into the "rat rod" look. We talked it over and they wanted the old protective under coating taken off the spring, suspension and fender wells. We do alot with re-builders and customizers so I was all in. After the right rust patina is achieved customer will treat with wipe on poly or linseed oil.

With the direction of the customer we take off what is desired he will leave it till the right patina is reached then seal it off. Cleaned by Pete coal slag blasting.

The Magic Behind It: Using a Nozzle Chart

Using the Nozzle Chart an instructional guide. I have blogged about nozzles size, how to use them and why nozzling works with a power washer. I was still asked how do you come up with that information? I tell them the nozzle chart tells you what you need to know. It is not magic or hard to see once you have been shown so I'll give it a try. 

Below you will see a basic nozzle chart there are more complex one out there but this one is good for us to learn on.

Ok it all we need to know before starting is how many gallons per minute your power washer puts out. We don't care how powerful it is, what size the motor is, what type of pump it has or what brand. 

For this first try let's say our washer is a 4 gpm (gallons per minute) @ 4000 psi (pounds per square inch) the only reason I'm noting the psi is you'll never make more than what it is rated at. I can not put out 5000 psi with a 4000 psi machine, even with a smaller nozzle. The machine will simply bypass water, if you size a nozzle to small, which will just over work your unloader wearing it out faster.

Now we want to clean some vinyl on a home, do we need 4000 psi the rating on the washer? No not for vinyl lets say for example, more like 1000 psi will do the job. Up to the chart find 1000 psi and go down till we find our gpm output which is 4 gpm .......... found it? If so move to the left till you find the first column. You should be on 08 if you want only to use a 1000 psi with a 4 gallon washer you need a #08 nozzle in the fan pattern you wish.

Let's go again we want to use 2000 psi for some cleaning 2000 psi down to 4 gpm move to the lst column you would need a 05,5 you saw there is no 4 gpm so we use the closest to it 3.9 in this case.

Once again, 3500 psi no 4 so what is close 3.7 or 4.2 I alway go with the smaller number since you can not create more water flow than what you have so I would use a #4 tip which is what we would also use to achieve full pressure. I did this to show you can tune your pressure just so far since nozzles come in only full and half sizes we can do only so much.

What if we have a 5 gallon out put machine? Lets try it. I want 1500 psi same thing find the 1500 column down to this time 5 to the left. You should be at? A #10 nozzle.  Wanting 2500 psi you should have found a #06. The larger size lets more water pass through giving a softer or less harsh psi. I now hope you see it is not magic or that hard to use to find what you need for washing. You never have to touch your unloader like some think you do to set psi. You set it at peak psi and use nozzles to control your psi.

Our simple chart above was good for training but lets go back to washing that vinyl home I would like to use only 800 psi but our chart does not go down that far. Other Charts do though. Let's have a go at this one.

Harder to read I'm sorry but we can see the 800 psi column down to 4 gpm left to first column and we need a ..... #08.5 to wash a vinyl sided home. At 5 gpm a #11 works.

I hope this now make more sense to you. Using nozzles to reduce psi or nozzling as I call it is simple and easy. You need not worry about blasting or harming soft surfaces with a oversized nozzle and a wider fan pattern you can open up your world of clean.

High pressure is good for a few things but controllable psi is far more useful.

I wish to add since I have different machines that I use a nozzle is a nozzle so they can work in all the different machines. The tool box is full of nozzles so I can use the chart this way too. I have a #08.5 nozzle that I may want to use with my 4.5 gpm unit. What will it do? Find the nozzle size in the first column..... move to the right till I find the closest output to 4.5 then up to see what it can do. If my eyes are right looks to be 1000 psi. One more try lets say we have a #50 which some like to soap and rinse homes with. Why? What will it put out with a 8 gallon machine? Size 50 in the first column to the output to 8 gpm moving right looks like 7.1 is the closest out put, then up,  shows 100 psi. That is about twice the psi of an average garden hose "soft washing". With the chart a handful of nozzles you can adjust your washing pressure to most projects. Power to soft washing it is all in the tips you use.

Does not matter what our max out put was does not matter what our motor size was, didn't matter what brand or type of pump we have. If I was using any 8 gallon (that was properly outfited, meaning it has the proper motor and running speed) out put machine with a #50 nozzle it will be putting out @100 psi of washing power. I'm a geek when it come to having the right tools and equipment. Being able to fine tune a power washer to get the best, safest, and most effect use from the water we use helps save this resorce. 

Water is one of the most precious resources we have doing our part to get the best  effect from it is "eco friendly" and a no-brainer. Each doing their part, to do what we can to help mother earth out a bit, is what a professional power washer does or should be doing.

Newly Proposed Law's Governing Wash Water

Newly Proposed Law's Governing Wash Water

I have this to say once it is said that will be it I will not bore you with my views and opinions on this matter again. Some will agree some will not.
I just feel I need to say it.

As much as I hate politics it has risen its' ugly head in our industry. Some will say that it is being driven by greed and the love of money, Others say it is driven by wanting to have a lasting legacy. Some say it is just the normal growth of self-serving agenda. I believe it is all the above plus an over-reaching arm of the government wanting and thinking it is more than it should be. If you have not heard yet there are new proposed laws that are now open to a "open discussion" period for public input in Orange County Calf. Which we all know "as goes California so goes the rest" sooner or later. This will impact what we do, how we work, clean, and support our families. When they write new laws in this case updating the law, they put in as many teeth as they can, what I mean is they load it up with all types of things put some bite in it. Get it in now may not have another chance at it. Remember "we have to pass it to know what is in it" the famous remark with Obama care. Crafting laws is a fine art with what the wording said but what it really meant.

Now 5.28.14 after 2 week of he said they did, we say you didn't it all boils down to. It is over with things staying the same, "as it was intended all along". Blame it on miscommunication or misunderstanding but you can catch up on it here: http://www.ecleanmag.com/robert-hinderliter-answers-questions-on-new-proposed-orange-county-bmps-2014-05-28/, It is a link in response from their first interview, e-clean magazine.

I don't know the exact details of how this started there is speculation all around. Actuation be thrown here there and everywhere. It does not matter who did what, when or how it is time to figure out what to do now. In a new interview on this subject it has been brought to light that some taking the heat for writhing these proposed laws are there only by invitation from Orange County. That they are modifying existing laws (http://ocwatersheds.com/civicax/file...px?BlobID=9630) adding more to them to be in compliance with the federal government.

Here is how I see it. I'll start off with my biggest problem, a small group in the government, was born in a overreaction of speculated concern about environmental pollution, it was established on December 2, 1970 to consolidate enforce, dictate and steer a variety of federal research, monitoring, standard-setting and enforcement activities to ensure environmental protection on air-quality. Since its inception, it has been working toward becoming its' own branch of the government adding to its' power and overreach, it along with the IRS are working to see if they can become the fourth arm or branch of the government.

Is there big business behind this also? Waste haulers, recyclers for used wash water, cradle to grave insurance for hauling or moving said water, fees for hauling what is now deemed hazardous waste.  If in-acted, I will need new equipment to handle "used wash water", bigger truck, hazardous waste container, I will we need new licence or permits to haul said waste, and maybe fees for disposal of said "used wash water? There was a time when "gray water" that water used for washing and cleaning containing soap and cleaners would be run off in the backyard, some folks ran it into their garden. Yes there was a time we didn't die or live in fear of wash water. It now too implies in these proposed laws somehow hot water is a pollutant, hot water is bad, hot water causes the earth problems, I knew as a kid momma was wrong now the government is proving it!

You can go on and on but what it seems to boil down to "it is prime time" to get this done. If these regulations that only effect a small, very small group power washer, carpet cleaners, car-washes, car and truck washer, painters who may use pressure washers or those that make a living with using water as a cleaning agent no other group is pointed at in these proposed laws. It is time to get it pass in to law now is the best opportunity to do so. Why pick on this small group money if we can charge this group a license fee, user fee, fines, disposal fees the government stands to make a few more dollars to waste. You know that a fine will have a huge cost related to it. As is asked are their some in the water reclaim industry pushing this? What if each and every power / pressure washing company had to buy just one reclaiming unit? What would it cost if you needed to set up a fleet of service trucks?

I know it has been said, use a sump pump, garden hose, kiddie pool and a "tote tank" for storage of waste water. Good idea a $200 dollar out lay, but my concern here is how does this look to customers? professional?

Money, money, money this two edged sword is cutting both ways and either way it will be costing the power washer more money. Where will it come from the customer is the last person in the chain. Cost will rise and with the fear of fines, threats and repercussions from that small department of the government with the ego complex, customers will not be having things washed / cleaned. Also as for those onlookers thinking it is only for those power washers won't effect us. Want to bet once this is set into law watch the ever increasing long reaching fingers start to reach out and see where it ends. Water from fire-fighters? Water form airport and gas station run-off? Water from roofs and buildings? What about the city street cleaner? Water from burst water mains? What about run off from farms and cattle pens and other animals grown for food? How about the insecticides and pesticides use by farmers this is also mentioned in the scope of this law. This law can be implied, bent and formed in several ways. If you think is is going to stop with the pressure / power washing industry you are very mistaken that is just the starting point.

A few of the regulations read like this those in green italic: My question and or answer follows.
 Debris - plastic bags, six-pack rings, bottles, and cigarette butts - washed into
water-bodies can choke, suffocate, or disable aquatic life like ducks, fish, turtles,
and birds.

I don't wash: plastic bags, six-pack rings, bottles or cigarettes butts off of too many customer's homes, little less spend water and time chasing them down the street forcing them into a storm drain. If I do encounter this I pick them up and trow them away much more time and water efficient to take care of it before washing.

Hazardous wastes like insecticides, pesticides, paint, solvents, used motor oil,
and other auto fluids can poison aquatic life. Land animals and people can
become sick from eating diseased fish and shellfish or ingesting polluted water.
Polluted Waste Water can affect drinking water sources. This, in turn, can affect human health and increase drinking water treatment costs.

  Are they implying that the house washing contractor applying the listed items above along with solvents and motor-oils on to the home for cleaning? Are you saying that the power washing contractor is the one and only responsible person for these chemicals listed above in water ways? Water coming off a home from a house wash would contain nothing more than that of a hard rain, if rinsing the same stated list of chemicals that may exist on the home came off how is the contractor responsible for this? If the home had the above mentioned chemicals on it the rain would remove them also. Last time I checked there was not a big call for washing plants and vegetation so insecticides and pesticides if in waterways can not be drawn back to the washing contractor maybe they should be going after an exterminator instead. If Cleaned by Pete does encounter any oils or petrol spills or drips we use a chemical absorbent sock or pig that are capable of removing 90% plus of this contaminants by running our wash water trough them first. Same defence use for oil spills and water way clean-ups.

Polluted runoff has caused thousands of water bodies nationwide to become impaired meaning that they do not meet state water quality standards. This runoff threatens our health and costs our communities money. Not only will requiring pollution sources to take action make our waters safer and healthier, but it will also help cities and towns that are financially struggling
to meet current clean water requirements.
I'm sorry for being stupid here but what is this "runoff" they're talking about? Can you prove that this "runoff" as they referring to it was put in the water ways by me washing a home for a customer? Is this run off that is polluting our waterways proven and documented that it came from a "cosmetic cleaner", power washing contractors, painters, car washer or others making a living while using water as a cleaning agent? Show me your research show me your proof. Lumping our wash water in the "runoff" form parking lots, street, people poring used oil down the storm drain, tanker spills, chemical spills is a low, low, implication that a contractor did it. You should be ashamed of wording like this and implications that a small group of professionals did this. I have seen more oil and gas washed down the road by those cleaning up after an accident when a spill may cause a fire or problem, not a power washer a fire department you want to fine them too? Ridiculous wording, ridiculous implications, ridiculous actualization toward a group of professional contractors, driven by greed, the want of money, more fees and pending sales of equipment, imposing your unproven research on and blaming a power washing contractor.


We have been working hard on reducing our "carbon offset footprint" here at Cleaned by Pete and if we have to bring in more equipment to run it will mean a higher gas bill, even with the "kiddie pool" alternative I will need a gas generator to run the sump pump, thus more oil usage, more exhaust pollution to pump out in the atmosphere. We will have to get a bigger service truck once again to pull all this extra equipment around! Think about it this way the department set up to help air-quality is forcing me to pollute the "air" even more. This is what it was set up originally to do air-quality, to reduce emissions now they say use and pollute more to pollute less. I hope I made sense out of the last statement it is so ridiculous it is hard to put into words, because it is madness.

It is prime-time to get this proposed law passed, with a self serving administration who owes big favours to the environmentalist and other contributors, this lame duck administration will start pushing things through. Giving power to those who need not have it. That is why is has been a big secrete, that is why it is being pushed through quickly, that is why it was cloaked till now. We can all stand up and say this is not right, but we're a small bunch of contractors that are so fractured that a united stance is going to be hard given our time reference.

This blog could go on and on but it is up to each of us to do what we can. I'm just calling it out here, pointing out a few things I feel strong on. Will I help to fight this? yes, but being a one-man operation how loud of voice do I have? I will use it as much as I can. 

Just for the sake of a sale, for the sake of a few more federal or local dollars these proposed laws will hurt the power washing contractor and all their customers. The impact will be more reaching than they ever expected. If cost rise too much, which they will have to, customers will not have things cleaned. We saw this on the commercial side of the business during the so called "recession" customers cut back some even stopped having their storefronts and concrete cleaned. When it came down to saving a dollar and making go at profits businesses will find something to cut. If cost for cleaning gets to high, will we see this again? I believe so. This law if enacted will have a reaching effect that will not stop with just "cosmetic cleaning" it will reach and morph into areas you can not imagine.

Now for the flip side do I believe in helping the environment? Cleaned by Pete has blogged about this several time before. I have written about how we uses less water, oil, gas, cleaners / soap, how much faster, we as professional power washers are and what we can do for our customers. Cleaned by Pete invested in new equipment and just built the "small footprint" service truck. YES I believe in being "Eco friendly" we take being good stewards of the earth seriously as do most professional power washing contractors. Will vacuuming up used washed water around a customers home help the earth? Will hauling it to sights to dump it help the earth? Will paying for more equipment that will pollute the air more and having to use a large truck and trailer help the earth? Will paying the government fees and dumping cost help the earth? Will paying manufactures for unproven equipment really help the earth? Will saying hot water is pollutant help the earth? These are the questions you should be asking,

Common scene will help the earth something the government knows nothing about. Each of us doing their part will make the difference. A mandatory law saying you do this or else, fear and intimidation to make a few dollars is not going to help the earth. We all know that fear, intimidation and trowing money around is the government fix to everything. I am almost to the end of the road and will hopefully make it to retirement in a few years at least partial retirement. I would like to go out as a power washer but if these proposed law's become effective I really feel that it will be the end of the road for Cleaned by Pete as a power washing company. Do I have a plan fight it? Well as much as I can, with the only weapon I have, just common sense and hope for the best. If not I'll be starting on getting the "food truck" back on the road, to make a living from.

Rant is now over I hope that I did not offend others or followers of the blog. Walking a line sometimes is hard but keeping quite when you need to be shouting something is not being true to one's self. I feel Cleaned by Pete is doing what he can to help and that paying fees and buying new equipment is stepping us backwards in our efforts to be more "Eco Friendly". This may put a spotlight on me but so be it I have a right to say or input my opinion on this matter the same as that governmental department that has run amuck, same as the environmentalist, the same as any business man pushing equipment, hauling waste, or the same as those who want fees and money gained from it be it a individual, business or government. A new mandated law, for what I am doing and trying to do now, out of choice to being eco friendly while trying to make a living, does not make sense.

Thank you I'm out.

I Wash Houses For A Fresh New Look: What About My Blog's Looks?

Spent some time today to freshen up the look of the old blog. I have been talking about how we as cleaners / washers need to band together more and helping each other out when we can. I added a new column, (widget they call it) to help others find your blogs. I keep up with most of these by bookmarking them. I'll try to put up your blogs from the industry, so others can find you.

Look at our new "blogs we follow" on the right hand I'll be adding more to the list if you want to see your self closer to the top it is a list compiled by last up-date to your blog. I thought it was a good way to list them.

If you would like to have your blog link removed just let me know I'll take it down.

My hope in doing this is to help drive traffic between the blogs to get more web presents for all of us. If you wish and can link us to you too.

House Wash'n Wednesday: Was a Washout!

And we thought spring was here. 
House Wash'n Wednesday: raining and cold in the Ozarks

Today in the Ozarks the temperature is fighting to get into the mid 40s and rain and drizzle is expected all day. I will have to push everything forward one day. I was to wash off a deck, clean the pools deck and patio area along with cleaning the patio furniture but weather in the Ozarks is just unpredictable at times.

Thought I would post up some furniture cleaning, stripping and washing that I have done, for "House Washing Wednesday". This service grew out of our outdoor kitchen cleaning, customers wanted there furniture cleaned up too, and some wanted it stripped for refinishing. Since I worked at our family's antique hardware store and we finished custom wood and metal pieces, furniture and antiques it was a good fit with my business. I had the background and knew what to use and what would work. I pulled a series of photos from a couple of job of cleaning patio furniture; wood, metal, wicker and even vinyl. Cleaned by Pete has done these jobs and taken the photos. I'm sorry if I have to keep posting that and posting our name on all photos and work but someone is borrowing our work and representing it as theirs, just trying to slow them down a bit. Well at least they are taking it form the best. 

If we can help you with your cleaning need we're only a phone call away: 417.459.7869.

Washing Warriors, Time To Get Your Kling-on: foam lances foam cannons

Washing Warrior, Time to get your Kling-on

You have to be a "Trekie" to get the pun in the title but with that aside, this entry is about how I have been using a foam cannon. Now even the term "foam cannon" is outdated. If you look for one you now have to search for foam lances for better results. What is a foam cannon or foam lance? my best explanation is: A foam cannon is an attachment to your gun, unlike anything you may have ever used before. The cannon delivers a thick, frothy foam that clings (Kling-on reference in the title, what still don't get it?", to the surface you are cleaning. Dirt and grease begin loosening their hold on surfaces immediately. A foam cannon with your pressure washer make it easy to cover large areas that need to be cleaned making washing easier. Often, you'll find less agitation, cleaners and it covers evenly, a real plus when needed to remove grime. Most foaming cannons are self contained and your cleaners are in an attached tank or can be drrawn through a hose. Self contained foam cannons come in may different styles and types, many manufacture but all will work in the same manner. Here are few photos of foam cannons gleamed off the internet.





The workings inside are "top secret" and can't be discussed......
The last statement is completely untrue but there is alot of science, physics and tech-knowledge in them. On a basic level what makes a foamer work is it is drawing air in, and then running the soap / cleaner through a metal puck or mesh which aireates it into a lather. That is the noise you will here in the videos is this process. Whipping up the soap which will be mixed with the cleaners and then applied to the surface with a low pressure water flow provided by the power washer. Foaming is gaining a new look because of the may benifits, which I have mentioned below. Videos are from Cleaned by Pete.

video

 The metal puck is much like compressed steel wool or a tightly packed screen mesh. There also is a venturi inside them to aid in drawing in the soap / cleaners. I place in my cleaners car-washing soap for a great lather.

video
Cleaned by Pete  will use this method for laying down their cleaners using less water and using less cleaners. Helping once again to use less and help out mother nature. Just because you use more cleaners does not mean they are working better, Foaming can add up to 50% less cleaners in some cleaning applications. Cleaners are starting to work immediately on contact. Again using new technological ideas to help be more "Eco friendly". Yes "Eco friendly" come up once again. The longer we can get the cleaner to cling on or hang on the surface the better it will work, foam provides the grip the cleaners can do there job. Since it is hanging around longer you can now see why it we can use less cleaners they are just there longer doing their job.

Foam cannons have been around for a while but are now coming into more use in the power washing field. Foam expands the cleaning area and the small bubbles popping and expanding in the layer of foam help to work up dirt and grime. Do you remember those "Scrubbing Little Bubbles" 
 from commercials of years ago? Well they work and now we are employing the same idea here. The idea of applying to a larger coverage area mean using less water, gas and oil in the power washer again trying to do small parts for the environment.

I have had foam lances and or cannons they usually give us service for a year or two they are great and add in a new damnation to your cleaning arsenal. Simply by adding longer lances and extensions you can reach higher areas.

Below are some picture of Cleaned by Pete using the foam cannon.
Cleaned by Pete applying foamed cleaner to this deck via a foam cannon.

Cleaned by Pete using a foam cannon to apply foamed cleaners which cling and stay in place longer being more effective.

Cleaned by Pete's foaming methods start working instantly when applied and getting a even coverage means better results.

Cleaned by Pete has foamed this deck and is letting the scrubbing bubble action work.

Cleaned by Pete has foamed this home's siding and awnings and is now letting the scrubbing action of the foam work.
So from fleet washing, car washing, wooden fences to decks, houses to concrete and most surfaces from residential to industrial you may find a foamer of foam cannon in you future. Saving time, money, cleaners, and even water, being more "Eco friendly" all in one attachment what more can you ask for.
