Soap Process Questions

What is your guys process for applying soap?

  • For driveways do you apply before or after cleaning, and do you charge extra for soap and what kind of soap do you use?
  • For houses do you apply before or after cleaning, and do you charge extra for soap and what kind of soap do you use?
  • Also, do y’all use bleach for either driveways or houses and if so, what kind do y’all use and when in the process?
    New guy here where I’m in the planning stages of setting up my business. Just wondering what y’all use besides water and how you guys go about doing so.

You need to spend at least a week on this site reading before asking any questions. This is the most basic stuff and you’ll find all your answers with just a bit of research. No one is going to spoon feed you simple questions like these. FYI, no one who knows what they are doing uses straight water to clean properly.

I prefer the bleach with sodium hypochlorite in it.

I like to mix together NaClO, alkyldimethylamine oxide, alkylphenol ethoxylate, oxybis-tetrapropylene benzene sulfonate, and H2O.

Works great on both houses and concrete. Just have to get the amounts of each just right.

I find it hilarious that he edited the post twice and still failed to ask anything worthwhile.

I gave a real answer as to exactly what I use on both houses and concrete

Thanks, that helps a lot, theres just lots of different cleaning agents out there, I’m just trying to figure out which ones most people use so I don’t waste money buying a crap ton of soap and bleach.

Knowing how to use it properly will save you a “crap ton” more money than deciding which product to use ever will.

To answer your question…

55 gallon drum of 12.5% sodium hypochlorite or for starters just the 1 gallon ‘pool shock’ from a pool supply store. This of course is applied with something that dilutes it, do a further search on the forum for specific procedures and equipment.

Soap, use Elemonator or Snotmenade, not Dawn or Gain despite what you may hear on the internets.
