I would check with your local government websites often as they come up and go quickly. They typically have open for bid posts. I have done a few that way, just remember the award goes to the lowest bidder. With that being said I would ask (if it does not show) what the budget is and try to stay a little under as most companies pricing strategies will exceed the limit. Hope that helps!
Because this industry is so underground and not too many companies provide it, it can get pretty pricey. Start calling places and ask for referrals from the companies that don’t offer it. Usually you can find someone that way. It’s hard enough finding companies that will do it at all let alone inexpensive.
I am not recommending it, however, you can get a policy for janitorial coverage which is pretty inexpensive. But if you are using a pressure washer you will be denied for the coverage...at least in California.
Depends in part on the type of product you are looking to apply.
We use Titan sprayers but the important part is actually the spray tip.
It determines the pattern, the vaporization and the amount of product it applies.
For viscous stains that are thin, smaller tip orifice sizes are applicable.
For heavier bodied stains like semi-solid to solid stains, a larger orifice would be the choice.
After that, it becomes a matter of practice and awareness of the environment you are applying in that
will ultimately determine the ones you use most.
