From Breakdown to Breakthrough: How We Saved the Day with a Pump-Up Sprayer


Welcome back to the Lean and Mean Academy! Today, we're diving deep into the world of pressure washing, where one truck can lead to significant profits. Join us on-site as we tackle a house wash cleaning project, complete with unexpected challenges and valuable lessons for both newbies and seasoned pros alike.

But before we delve into the action, let's talk about setting your business up for success. If you're looking to start your pressure washing venture on the right foot, our How to Wash course is a must-have. Crafted by industry experts Michael Dan, Coty Yarbrough, Justin Rogers, and our own team, this course covers everything from substrate cleaning to chemical mixing, ensuring you can deliver top-tier results while maximizing your earnings.

Now, let's get into the details of our pressure washing endeavor. As we take on the task of cleaning an Old Brick home and its driveway, we encounter the notorious "honey badger" algae and other unexpected surprises. But fear not, because with the right knowledge and approach, we're equipped to handle anything that comes our way.

During our journey, we discuss the significance of efficiency and resourcefulness in pressure washing. Utilizing a pump-up sprayer may seem like a secretive technique to some, but in reality, it's a practical solution for spot treating and saving time. By optimizing our processes and utilizing the right equipment, we're able to maximize productivity without compromising on results.

However, our experience also highlights the importance of equipment redundancy. When faced with a broken soft wash pump, we're reminded of the age-old adage: "one is none, and two is one." Investing in backup equipment ensures that downtime is minimized, keeping your business running smoothly and your profits flowing.

Moreover, our discussion touches upon the need for collaboration and support within the industry. Instead of placing blame or expecting instant solutions, we emphasize the importance of preparedness and teamwork. Whether it's reaching out to colleagues for advice or having contingency plans in place, a supportive network is invaluable in the world of pressure washing.

As we wrap up our adventure, we leave you with a valuable lesson: always be prepared and invest in quality equipment. Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned professional, there's always room for growth and improvement in this dynamic industry.
