No. Sweetie always tries to give cash for such a good job.

You know, if he needs to pick up some bread and milk on the way home, he doesn't have to stop at the bank...

So that's how you let him spend his allowance?

We moved the lanai furniture indoors before he came.

He was so honest and nice and I just called Sweetie, and he doesn't remember his name either. Jojo...could it have been the young man who did your property?
Jon did ours previously and was very thorough. Derek did this year and was in a rush. I pointed out several places that needed to be redone. And as I noted I paid over twic as much this year.

Default Pressure washing recommendation needed

Anyone have recent experience with pressure washing companies? I have a CBS CYV and also need black marks on driveway and stains on patio removed. Can they power wash an acrylic enclosed lanai? I was thinking of using Egner's'. Any comments? Thanks.

Default I don't know how

Anyone could power wash a house in 1 or 2 hours. I have a hard time believing it would be as clean as I would want.I do my own twice a year and it takes me at least 5 hours sometimes more . When I'm done I know it's done completely.I was hoping to be able to do this when I first moved here as a small money maker but cannot compete with the prices others are getting .

Default Egner's

Interesting I was reading this thread and saw a red SUV with trailer pull up to house across the street and it was Egner's. I watched him wash the 2 bedroom ranch and it took only 20 min's of washing time and 5 minutes to set up and tear down afterwards.

He sprayed using the same house but drawing the "solution" at lower pressure on two sides and rear then did the rinse using higher "fan" pressure on those 3 sides then came around front and did the two operations there... Gone. 25 min's.

Still on the fence.. I did my amarillo-style house in April and it took me about 3 hours using hand brush and power washer (small electric type). Was slow having to move the electrical cord and hose around to different locations, etc. Solution I used was KrudKutter siding wash solution from Home Depot.

We use Egner's too. However we have a premier home therefore price is double plus. They do a great job on the exterior and lanai and the windows look terrific . No complaints at all. Takes him about an hour..

I believe twice a year! You are not an idiot as if you don't you will get mildew on your siding from the extreme humidity we have here. You might see this on homes outside of The Villages...and it's not pretty!
