So I’ve searched and read and watched about everything I can find on cleaning cedar wood/shakes and I’ve found nothing that really says here’s what I use, how I mix it and how I use it.
That said I have a customer that I wash their house last 2 years and she tells EVERYONE about me and gets me tons of work. Anyways she calls me today and asks if I can do her Gazebo. Medium size. 12ft round I’d say. It has cedar shake shingles and cedar floor. She wants it back to “original cedar look”.
Its in good shape other then the roof has moderate algae coverage and light moss and lichen. Floor is just dirty and light algae in spots.
I was going to do
3-4% SH dwell, rinse
Sodium Percarbonate dwell, rinse
Oxalic Acid dwell, rinse, rinse, rinse
Should this not clean it well?
7oz percarb to gallon of water?
3.5oz Oxalic to gallon of water?
Are these mix ratios correct?
Ill be applying with hand sprayer.
Rinsing with light pressure.
Any guidance or info would be greatly appreciated. I’m doing this for her at No Charge just as a Thank you for her business and the business she gets me. I just want to do a nice job for her learn something new in the process.
(She really stressed she wants the original color to be restored)
