Cold Weather Services
The Best Fall Services
With cooler weather making its way into the Midwest, many contractors begin to offer services targeted for the fall and winter. If you’re in an area that gets cooler during the fall and winter, consider focusing on these popular “end of the year” services.
1) Deck Restoration
This service will be dependent on temperature and weather, but during the early parts of Fall, there is still time to squeeze a few deck jobs in. It’s usually warm enough to get the soft washing done, but finding time when it is dry enough to complete the staining and sealing process can be tricky, depending on the weather patterns in your area.
2) Gutter Cleaning
This one is fairly obvious for most, and tends to be a popular service through the fall months. Gutter cleaning is an easy add-on service to a house wash, roof wash, or concrete cleaning. With fall showers common, and falling leaves building up in people’s gutters, it’s easy to upsell. You can add value to a gutter cleaning by offering a water jet service to clean out downspouts, and performing a water test to ensure proper function of all gutters and downspouts.
3) Window Cleaning
Window cleaning is a good service to offer to maintain residual income throughout the cold months. While not the most enjoyable work to perform, you can wash windows even when it’s below freezing, and for the most part, businesses will still require clean windows. Build your routes and offer residential window cleaning service throughout the fall and winter. Just add a bit of cold weather windshield wash to your mix to keep it from freezing on the glass.
Our Popular “Cold Weather” Products
Just because cooler temps are here doesn’t mean your washing season has to end. It’s true that SH decreases in activity the lower the temperature, meaning longer dwell times, stronger percentages, and multiple applications. You can offset the decrease in activity by using Agent Green, a soft washing additive that increases the efficiency of SH. It is extremely stable and compatible with SH, making it the perfect vehicle for delivering SH molecules to the surface. Combined with a strong surfactant/foaming agent like Secret Agent, you can extend your cleaning season further into the colder months.
Two of our most popular products also happen to be our best “cold” weather products. Agent Green is a chlorine enhancer that helps SH work more efficiently. This helps offset the decrease in activity due to cold temperatures. Agent Halt is a neutralizer that works to neutralize Sodium Hypochlorite, but it also contains a salt neutralizer. You can use it to help remove road salts from vehicles.
