    How is business this year?

    Market more and look to your existing customer base. They may not need a House wash this year but the driveway they put off last year needs it. And that activity leads to getting noticed by a neighbor or two. BTW.... I voted Great!

    Surface cleaning...

    No such thing. Nothing down a storm draid but rain water. Try not to get caught up in the hype around "Green" Chemicals. You'll waste money and also time because most don't work very well anyhow. The key to being "Green" is in the steps you take to be responsible. It is all about the...

    Two stepping

    I don't know crap about 2-stepping. If the results are just blowing this guys mind, then why is cost even being considered? I do know BUSINESS. Why worry about the cost when you have a customer that is sold on the results and the method? Raise the price to cover expense and make a profit. If...

    Tip of the Day (well maybe not everyday)

    Before the pressure washer gets started.... We do a quick walk around homes to check for windows/doors left open. Look for prior damage and document./notify homeowner. Also, pass out door hangers to surrounding homes.

    pressure pro anyone??

    I've had both and found nothing wrong with either. Sort of equal. So.... Being equal, You can generally buy 2 Pressure Pro Units for the price of 1 Landa. Kind of a No-brainer to me. However, if your local shop won't service the Pressure Pro, you may want to look at other brands if you aren't...

    Injector won't draw with extension wand?

    Some of the extension wands I've seen have a 1/4 inch hose and the guns aren't rated for much flow. This may be causing too much back pressure for your chem injector to draw. Also the added vertical height may cause that back pressure also. Just use a 0040 or 0030 tip to shoot your chems with...

    Please take all my Miami Clients

    I guess you and I think alike. I thought it was a joke too. 3 calls a week [help] 30 calls on voicemail= 10 week old leads 5 hours to do $250 jobs = very slow production rate or jobs WAY underbid. Average price $250... My minimum is $347 for a 1 hour job. Sorry, but this is a board for...
