    Ratio's , The 5 gal. bucket mentality

    When we make up a mixture of water and a chemical and the ratio is a 5 to 1 ratio that means 5 parts water to 1 part chemical.

    I have been asked for a quote to clean this building including the side walks. Don't know when it was cleaned last if ever. I'm guessing if the tiles are cleaned that will prevent further staining of the building and side walks. Strong house wash mix do the job ? I've never cleaned barrel tiles...

    As I know people in different parts of the country I sometimes get asked if there is a professional PWing contractor in their area. The UAMCC has a member directory and I can find contractors very fast, however not everyone who is on PWI belongs to the UAMCC. Does PWI have a member directory? I...
