Sometimes, you have to use some elbow grease...

Our technicians Dayn & Bo surprised us with this awesome time-lapse video they shot all on their own. It's a little long, but it shows the lengths we go to when needed to get a customer's home looking PERFECT.

Backstory - Even after we cleaned our customer's entire house, there was a stubborn, strange powdery film-like residue that would not budge. You could really only see it when viewing the dark painted siding at an angle. We tried using a variety of soaps, or even using a scrub brush - but it did not yield satisfying results. If a pressure washer was used - the paint would come off before the film would!

In this case, a good ol' rag and old fashioned hand detailing did the trick :)

Our goal is 100% Satisfied Customers - no matter what it takes!

Absolutely love the lunch break add-in.......:}

Funny, I thought we were crazy for all the hand cleaning we do but you hand wipe all the siding or was this just some "special" job?

This was the first job we had to hand detail so much - usually when there is paint oxidation or some of kind of fine dust, a good surfactant or product like oxi-wash will emulsify it enough to simply be rinsed.

The especially weird part was that a scrub brush didn't cut it - it only took a rag to get the stuff off there!

Not totally sure what it was. Felt like paint oxidation, but paint was only 4 years old.

We've had a similar issue. I believe it actually some time of "static charge", have seen it before. Only hand wiping will work, thank God it's a rare Occurrence!!!!

I'm digging Brandon's company more and more... Congrats on having a company that gives a ---- and is set on getting the job done no matter what it takes. Those guys need gift cards to a nice steak house and a few beers. Things like that kept us #1 on Angie 3yrs running (sorry Ray...)

Thanks Tim! biggrin You and I think alike - I did end up telling them to use the company card for dinner and beers that night!! I was totally blown away that they took the time to film/create the video, and have such a positive attitude about extremely tedious work as well.

Blessed to have such good employees!
