Agent Blue vs F9 Double eagle house wash

I have a question anyone have any experience using agent blue or double eagle for house wash using sh? So far what I’m beginning to realize Degreaser alone without any sh in just surfactant doesn’t do much as far as cleaning the gutters but if I add sh it seems like sh does the actual cleaning I have no experience with double eagle wondering if anyone has used the product and can give me some Intel on it

I don’t mean to be a prick but…have you actually washed a house before? Why are you washing houses with degreaser or even wanting to?

i think he’s only talking about gutters maybe

I don’t know, man. Seems like he’s asking about washing a house with degreaser…

Many use SH along with surfactant and degreaser for house wash it’s even used in f9 cook books

Oh goodness. Okay, well sounds like you’ve got it all figured out. Good luck to you.

.well agent clean solutions wouldn’t list that as it’s primary use and I am beginning to see when. I just used degreaser alone it didn’t do crap. Ut rather SH was what got it done. But to use it all g with SH maybe it adds more cleaning power

I just answered this same question in another thread you posted. Just use stronger sh. Double eagle is expensive and more for oil stains.

I sometimes add Terra Wash, which is for non-organic stains. I use it for that and cobwebs as it helps dissolve them. Terra wash is like a light weight degreaser. honestly the gutters typically have organic stains though so that’s why I turn up the sh. But every environment is different though. Maybe the houses are cleaning are right near the freeway and have a lot of soot on them. I would start by using your pump up sprayer I’m hitting them with 3% sh to see what happens first. If that doesn’t work dilute double eagle 10 to 1 and use a pump up sprayer and try that to see if that works. Or even get little spray bottles and try different products on really bad areas of the gutters to see which one gets you the best results for where you live.

I know double eagle is expensive and after seeing agent blue didn’t do crap left to just stick.with SH and surfactant.

Did the higher sh work?

Remember, SH works on organics such as algae, mildew, lichen, etc. If there’s no grease or oil there’s no reason to use a degreaser. Keep in mind that once the mildew is off of the gutters you’re sometimes left with tiger striping or darker areas. It’s usually caused from the asphalt in the shingles or the gutters are just old and severely oxidized. Asphalt has oil in it. You’re not going to get them clean down streaming anything. If you use a degreaser with sodium hydroxide in it you can scrub and remove a layer of paint to brighten them. That’s about the only area a degreaser can be worth using on a house wash unless there’s soot somewhere. You have to be careful though. It’s super easy to brush paint off down to bare metal. I rarely ever mention gutter brightening. It’s not worth the hassle most of the time. If I do mention it I price them high in hopes of not getting the job but it’s high enough I won’t mind doing them. Be sure to carry some cans of gutter touch-up spray paint.

Good Intel! Well agent blue is supposed to be designed for grease and dirt but one time I used it by itself it did nothing didn’t even remove dirt. So now I am realizing SH does clean contrary to what some argue that it does. Ot

Prior to realising that SH cleans, what did you think it was used for?

Been told repeatedly SH only kills mold has no cleaning poser

Sounds like standard Facebook info. Those power washing pages are full of bad info.
