After your driveway is clean and you wish to keep it clean you can follow some or all of the bellow points.
- Mix a 10 to 1 bleach to water solution and spray that over the concrete once a month, The sodium hypoclhorite in the bleach will kill and moss, mould and gunge spaws before they can grow.
- If you have fruit tree's in your garden you would almost certainly spray them with cooper sulphate on a yearly basis. Next time you spray your fruit trees make a little more up than you need and spray any concrete area's. Nothing kills moss, mould spaw's as fast as cooper sulphate.
- A very Eco friendly option os to spray the concrete with vinegar, This is not as fast as bleach but will slow down the return of the moss and mould dramatically as it puts the PH balance out and its not ideally growing conditions for the moss and mould.
- The best long term option if its available is to trim or cut down any plants or trees that is shading your concrete, direct sunlight is great for stopping moss and mould growing, As you will see it always grows on the shaded side of your house. Sunlight is free so try this step first.

HOW BAD IS THE DAMAGE?

WILL A ROOF CLEANING EXTEND THE LIFE OF MY ROOF?

1st is to open up satellite depots in those city's and run it as a company owned operation. This is a great option as you have 100% control over everything. But it has major draw backs as well the two main ones are you have to pay for everything and pay up front before you get any type of return. second is you have to hire staff to help run it for you and we all know staff on wages done care anywhere near as much as someone who has money on the line.
2nd option is sell franchises in those are's you want to open up. This is in my opinion the best option. As long as you vet the person you sell the franchise too and go into business with honest hardworking people it should be a win win for all involved. They foot the bill for all start up cost's and you train and give them guidance on how to run there business and make money at the same time.
You also get the benefit of franchise fees or royalties depending on how your format the deal. Just remember it needs to be a win win for both parties.
At Wash Rite we have just sold our first franchise to Tim Beale down in Wellington, He has been set up with all New Equipment provided to us by our friends at BE Pressure and he has undergone 3 weeks training in 2 blocks, 1st block was a 1 week period and than the second was a 2 week block of training.
After this training Tim is up to speed on sales and marketing, quoting, client relations, basic business management and actually doing the work. A few days Tim left our head office with his van fitted out, signed written and a head full of knowledge and is now back in Wellington spreading the Wash Rite word. Tim already has over 14 jobs booked in over the next two weeks and he has only just started.
This type of business format will only work if you both work.
At Wash Rite its our intention to roll out 4 more franchises in the next 12 months across the country and grow our service network, We intend on being the largest domestic service's company in the country within 5 years and we are on track to doing this.
If you have any questions around franchising or growing your service business please just ask.
