    Quick connects on triggers?

    So you know.... We have different lenghts also. What we have are ball valves at the ends of our hoses and it allows us to change out the entire gun with different lenghts. It does cost more because you have to buy more triggers but it is well worth it.

    Deck Restoration....

    Well..... Only on a few occassions have we had to resort to any type of electric sander. Most is done by hand. Most just need a light sanding to remove any type of furring etc..... If you have to use an electric sander, then the owner probably needs to replace the top railing. I would always...

    Deck Restoration....

    Process We always sand the top railings as well as reset/replace any screws/nails. This is part of Deck Restoration. It takes all of 1/2 hour to do this and is a have too. Even though we use a low pressure cleaning process the tops should always be sanded.

    Black corn stove markings

    Wastin your time..... The black silt will not come off. Depending on how old the aluminum is it is probably baked on by now. The only thing you can do is to explain to the customer the need to replace or repaint the siding after cleaning. The silt from the corn is sort of like resin and if...

    Negotiate Price in a Pinch?

    Prosoco Products For Brickwork, we use Prosoco. Although Prosoco will not probably save you any monies either. All good brick cleaning componds are expensive.
