Soft Washing School

Soft Washing School

There are different methods to cleaning exterior surfaces like brick, limestone,vinyl siding,hardie plank siding, and wood siding. And many other surfaces will be found on homes and buildings where you operate. There never has been nor ever will be one certain chemical to use. Nor one certain piece of equipment that will allow you to clean everything.  At my Soft Washing School I will teach you the different ways of Soft Washing surfaces. You will encounter many in your new Soft Washing business.

Instead of having to rely on one certain piece of equipment that can hinder you on certain jobs, I’ll show you the different pieces of equipment you need to have so that you can effectively clean a wider variety of surfaces and stains.  This will make your business more profitable and make you MORE money.

Hands On Soft Wash Training

You will also be able to actively participate in Hands On training.  This allows you to actually feel how the equipment operates. It will help you make better decisions when it comes to purchasing the equipment you need.  This will help you operate your Soft Washing business more efficiently, leading to greater profitability. Our goal at the Soft Washing School is to provide you with the education you need.  Not just to start up your business, but to also continue to operate it successfully long term.

 

Choosing the Right Soft Washing Equipment

Soft Washing School

Soft Washing School

Having been in the Pressure Washing and Soft Washing business for over 25 years, I have used a lot of the equipment that is out there.  As you can see in the picture in this article, we have different pieces so that we are prepared for most any job, large or small that comes our way.  I will help you choose the proper equipment needed, and then direct you to a few different suppliers for you to shop and get prices from.  Who you decide to purchase from is up to you.  I do not make any income from your equipment purchase. You can choose to purchase from the ones I recommend, or you can choose to purchase your Soft Washing and Pressure Washing equipment from your own sources.

If you have any questions about our Soft Washing School or the training I provide, please feel free to call me or text me at 281.883.3630
