Q: Is Roof Algae the same as Driveway mold?
Q: Can I use Roof Cleaners with direct-inject powerwashers?
Jane D from North Carolina
A: Yes, Roof Cleaner QSE is pressure cleaning compatible.
YES, Roof Cleaner QSE is compatible with most direct-inject powerwashers (also called pressure washing chemical injectors or soap-tips).
Just adjust the dilutions so that the end dilution remains 4 gallons of water for every EZ pouch.
For example if your pressure washer is uses a 9:1 mix ratio, then instead of mixing 4 gallons of water, you would mix .4 gallons (1 tenth)
Roof QSE far exceeded my expectations
Roof Cleaner QSE Product Review
I wanted to let you know that your product far surpassed my expectations in terms of the finished product.
You never know how much extra effort went into photos in advertising but I can honestly say that your QSE product was very easy to use and worked just like the literature said it would!
I’m enclosing a few before and after shots . . . . I wanted to get a few with the sun on the roof as the before shots had but it was late afternoon by the time I finished and I wanted to take a few shots to send you.
My neighbor came over and wanted to know what I was using as he said the roof looked brand new . . . . and the house is 12 years old.
Thanks for a product that delivered more than I had expected . . . and as far as the subject line goes, I should have said “What did you guys do to by stained, ugly roof . . . . now it looks like it is brand new again!”
thanks for a first rate product that far exceeded my expectations and one that has drawn compliments from neighbors in my neighborhood.
