    the white strips that trim the building are the LED lights
  2. NOT a DIY but need a question answered

    the restaurant is a Texas Roadhouse, they want me to bid cleaning and re-staining, It would be a solid stain same color. Thanks for all of the feedback
  3. I run a build maintenance that works only in restaurants, I've been doing PW for about 4 years as part of my services, but this restaurant has asked me to wash and paint their building. should I be concerned about the building lighting, they have several signs and the building it trimmed with LED strips. I've asked this question about a week or so in the Buildings section but I haven't received any answers PLEASE help me out here.
  4. I do mostly flat work, this restaurant I work with (mostly tile work and general handyman stuff) has asked me to PW there building and re-stain it. They are located on an interstate so the buildings in pretty bad shape. Besides having some normal signage they have some LED light strips that frame the building. I could use some advise on chemicals, and if I should worry about the lights I run a 4GPM cold unit, 3900 PSI Thanks
  5. dewalt 4 qpm

    I have a 3000 psi 2.7 gpm, and just bought a 3700 psi and 4.0 gpm unit. Can I use the same hoses???
  6. dewalt 4 qpm

    they had last years model at a location 60 miles away, 150.00 off, so I went to but it, and it was missing the chemical hose an the manual, so they sold it to me for 630.00. Needless to say I didn't argue with them . 360.00 off from this years. 3700 vs 3750 psi
  7. dewalt 4 qpm

    PWing is just one of many services I offer, My company is a building maintance service that work only in restaurants, I charge the same rate for all of our services, tile, painting, plumbing, ect... 65.00 p/h
  8. dewalt 4 qpm

    I charge by the hour :)
  9. HD has a dewalt PW with a Honda engine and a cat pump for 999.00 I PW about 200 hours a year, and have been using a Kartcher 2.8 GPM 3000psi for the last few years. I only do flat work (sidewalks dumpster pads in restaurants) Has anyone tried this model? Any feed back would be great. thanks
  10. restaurant grout cleaning

    Would TSP leave the floor cloudy,
  11. restaurant grout cleaning

    I go a lot of re-grouting and tile replacement in kitchens. can anyone recommend an effective method to cleaning restaurant kitchen grout. I only have a cold unit, and I would rather not buy a hot unit at this time.
  12. I've search the forum for the best place to ask these questions and I think this mite be the best place (if there is a monitor of the post thinks there is a better location please move it) I do repairs in restaurants, and work with about 40 chains, each year I try to add services. I'm considering ceiling tile cleaning. Most kitchens have a vinyl covered ceiling tile and most need cleaning. I've done some research and there are a few franchise out there but theres big bucks up front. I'm not sure I want to go that route. Any suggestions for information,equipment and chemicals would be appreciated.
  13. I've got a small kartcher 2700 psi, 3.2 gpm (robins motor) gas unit. I have had it for a few years and worked ok. I just do a little flat work around restaurants. It started dripping gas a few months ago (rarely use it) but the other day the leak became real steady almost a stream, from the back of the unit. It drips down from what appears to be a bubble or glass float housing under the motor. I was going to hold off buying a replacement for it this year, any suggestions of what mite be wrong and how to fix. Te last time I had it services it took 3 weeks, and I'll need it next week thanks
  14. a local dist has a ebbs 3500 psi / 5 gpm hot unit for $3500 gas powered, I cant tell how old it is, seams in good shape is this a fair price
  15. delco ???

    I've noticed delco producs being mentioned, I've done a web search and I'm having problems locating. does someone have a web site they could share.
