Never Buy Your Chemicals From Lowes Or Home Depot (Big Mistake)



Hey, pressure washing pros! Welcome back to the Leaning Academy, where we're all about leveling up your game in the world of exterior cleaning. Today, I'm chilling at Coty's Place over at Southeast Softwash, puffing on a cigar, and diving into a topic that's near and dear to every pressure washer's heart: chemicals. Specifically, why you should steer clear of those run-of-the-mill products from Home Depot and opt for the pro-grade stuff. But before we dive into that, if you're just starting out in the biz and aiming to hit that magical $7,000 per month mark, I've got something special for you. Check out our Local Domination 0 to 7K blueprint course – your roadmap to success in the pressure washing world. Now, let's get into it.

The Case Against Home Depot Chemicals:

Let's cut to the chase – those dad chemicals you find at Home Depot or O'Reilly's? They just don't cut it in the world of professional pressure washing. Sure, they might get the job done on small-scale projects, but when you're tackling serious grime and graffiti, you need something stronger. That's where pro chemicals come into play, and let me tell you, the difference is night and day.

Potency Matters:

Take, for example, Coty's Chem for graffiti removal. This stuff is so potent that shipping it requires jumping through hoops. We're talking UPS almost refusing to handle it because it's that powerful. And that's not the only one – Rust Rescue, our go-to rust remover, is equally hardcore. These chemicals are not for the faint of heart, but when it comes to tackling tough stains, they're worth their weight in gold.

Efficiency Redefined:

Here's the kicker – with pro chemicals, a little goes a long way. Unlike their watered-down counterparts from big-box stores, you'll find yourself using a fraction of the product to achieve the same – if not better – results. It's like trading in your rusty old wrench for a shiny new Snap-on – sure, it's an investment upfront, but the efficiency gains pay dividends in the long run.

The Cost-Savings Angle:

Now, you might be thinking, "But aren't pro chemicals more expensive?" Not necessarily. When you factor in the amount you save by using less product per job and the superior results you deliver to your clients, the math speaks for itself. At the end of the day, investing in quality chemicals is an investment in your business's success.


So, there you have it – the case for ditching the Home Depot aisle and upgrading to pro chemicals from Southeast Softwash. Trust me, once you've experienced the power and efficiency of these products, there's no going back. So, do yourself a favor and level up your pressure washing game with the good stuff. Your clients – and your bottom line – will thank you for it. Thanks for tuning in, and I'll catch you in the next video.
