Immaculate Wood Cleaning In Tuscaloosa, AL
This homeowner hired us to clean a wooden privacy fence that surrounded the back yard of a rental house that he owned. The home had previously had a fire in the backyard that charred some of the fence, but overall the fence was just dirty and needed to be cleaned.
We started by watering all of the grass around the bottom edge of the fence and the interior of the fence with plain water to protect it from the chemicals that were to be used in the wood cleaning process. After giving the grass a good soaking, we started at one corner of the fence treating it from the bottom to the top all the way around to the other side with the surfactant and sodium hypochlorite solution. The time it took us to get from one corner to the other allowed for ample dwell time on the wood, so we were able to start rinsing right away. The entire fence was rinsed with medium-light pressure. Using a backpack sprayer, we then applied the oxalic acid solution to the freshly cleaned wood to not only neutralize the bleach, but to also brighten the wood up just a little bit more. Allowing the oxalic acid to sit for approximately 15 minutes, it was now time to rinse again. After rinsing the oxalic acid off, the entire area around the base of the fence was once again rinsed to further dilute all rinsed cleaning solution that was in the grass.
The customer was blown away at the night and day difference of his freshened up Tuscaloosa, AL rental house.
