EMS House Wash

EMS House Wash is a concentrated cleaning agent developed for low pressure cleaning that makes up to 50 gallons of cleaning solution. One gallon cleans up to 8800 square feet of surface at a cost of less than 1/2 cent per square foot.  2000 square feet of wall area can be cleaned for less than $10.

EMS House Wash cleans, vinyl, stucco, asbestos, brick, wood, painted siding, awning and lawn furniture using low pressure. It may be applied using a pump-up garden sprayer or a 12 volt agricultural sprayer. The surface may be rinsed using only a garden hose at street pressure.

EMS House Wash removes mold, mildew, insect stains and bird droppings. It emulsifies spider webs, where pressure washers just knock them around.

Mixing Instructions

The basic ,mixing formula is:

3 oz. AllClean House Wash, plus 8 oz. concentrated Clorox per 1 gallon of water

One gallon of mixed solution will clean approximately 200 sq. ft. of surface.

To determine the amount of solution to make use the following formula:

Area to be cleaned  / 200

Example:

1400 sq.ft./200 = 7 gals.

Example: Fill the tank with 7 gallons of water then add 21 ounces (about 2-1/2 cups) of AllClean House Wash and 56 ounces (7 cups) of chlorine bleach.  

Stir the solution a couple beats and your ready to start washing.

Note: We highly recommend Clorox brand, as the cut-rate brands traditionally do not have the brightening ability and shelf life of Clorox. You may wish to experiment with other brands; however, most cleaning contractors are in agreement with us.

Another note about chlorine bleach: Clorox and similar bleaching products are solutions of water and sodium hypochlorite. The sodium hypochlorite is the bleaching agent, which over time breaks down and forms water and sodium chloride (table salt). Generally, the product has a shelf life of about 6 months if left in an unopened original container. However, once the product is removed from its container and diluted in a cleaning solution, its effectiveness as a bleaching agent diminishes dramatically; in as little as 24-48 hours. Therefore, do not make more solution than you will use during any single day.

A third note about chlorine bleach:  Bleach does not clean. It brightens. White clothes, washed without bleach will be clean, but they'll also be dingy.  So, if you want a clean dingy house, don't use bleach. Also, bleach in a concentrated state is less effective then diluted bleach in solution.  Therefore it is not necessary nor advisable to ever mix bleach at concentrations greater than a 10:1 ratio (10%).  Our mixing instructions above allow for a 16:1 ratio (7%) of chlorine bleach.  By following our mixing instructions the final cleaning solution will contain less than .2% (thatís less than 1%) sodium hypochlorite.

How to properly wash siding

ďItís in the process, not the pressure!Ē

There is no need to blast the side of a house with 3000 psi.  In fact, pressures washers leave streaks, break window seals, put hash marks on wood, force water under the siding and defoliate plants.  Pressure washers have a place; cleaning driveways, cleaning construction equipment and cleaning decks, but not siding. If you insist on using a pressure washer, it is best to use it for rinsing only.  Reduce the pressure to only a couple hundred pounds by adjusting the regulator valve, unloader or using a larger nozzle, such as a chemical tip. The chemical injector of a pressure washer may also be used to apply the cleaning solution, but be forewarned, you will use an excessive amount of chemical, thus driving your job cost up.

Place your machine so you can wash one side of the house at a time then begin spraying the siding from the bottom up.  If you spray from the top down, clean streaks will appear on the siding, and you donít want that to happen.

More than likely you will not be able to reach the eave or soffit without using your extension.  Therefore, the quickest way to perform the job is to spray and rinse the bottom half, going completely around the house, then attach your extension and go around a second time to get the top part. Again, apply the chemical from bottom up.  Sorry, some house may require a ladder.  

The chemical should have a dwell time, ideally, of about 5 minutes. However, the chemical could begin to try quicker on a hot sunny day. Do not allow the chemical to dry before rinsing.  Let it dwell as long as possible but rinse before it dries.  This means you will have to spray and rinse sections at a time.

The siding should be rinsed from the top down, with the garden hose using street pressure.  You will be amazed as the dirt, mold, webs and stains disappear before your eyes with just a souped-up garden sprayer and a garden hose.

Remember the rule: Apply chemical bottom up, rinse top down

When youíre finished, rinse your machine with clear water, pack up your stuff, collect your money and go to the next job.
