  6. Stained Ipe

    Rust is typically removed with Phosphoric acid. You mentioned a metal shim so that should be a good course of action. More dwell time as well. This stain looks to have been absorbed over time so it will have penetrated the pores of Ipe which is unlike soft woods which have elongated fibers instead. The sanders may come in handy after again. Now, as to the photo, this looks to be a caustic stain. Given it in a public use area, who knows. I would try f18 alone. Prepare you may have to do entire lengths of boards to keep the appearance more uniform. Brushing may also be helpful. Neutralize after. Rod & Beth
  7. We are a custom cabinet shop that serves residential and commercial customers. We specialize in kitchen remodels and bathroom remodels.
  8. Need Help Brand new commercial install of Ipe, roughly 1500 Sq. Ft. 9th floor exterior patio downtown Toronto Condo building. Something was stored on it. In one spot (not in the picture) there is clearly the shadow of a metal shim. Not sure what exactly was stored or caused the stain in the picture. We tried washing it with F10 and F18 followed by F8. Tried sanding. NOTHING. Any pearls of wisdom ?

  17. Marketing

    All sites need good SEO. Organic rank is hard to come by. Make sure the text on your page reflects the key words your clients would use to find you. Beth
  18. Marketing

    Looked at your site and while it looks good, what is in it counts towards ranking in search engines. There isn't enough of the content to push your rankings so you likely get shoved several pages down in the search people may do. I did a search for: Naples Fl. lanai cleaning and your way down on page two. Your site calls it a pool cage. That isn't a common term people would use so stick to what is commonly used by your customers. I'll let Beth contribute here as this is her specialty. Rod & Beth
  19. Curious what machines or nozzles are best for pool cages?
  20. Marketing

    I had a website built for pool cage pressure cleaning and general pressure washing, but I don't think I am getting much from the actual site itself. Thinking of making some physical flyers, but where to put them or pass them out?

  27. Pressure Washing School and Hard Surface Restoration

    These classes you put together are sick! Good idea to have some sort of training so that companies can send new hires to come in and out and be more aware of what they're getting into. We recently started our own company, Kailua pressure washing, and would definitely use this material for more information. Thanks a ton!
