Pressure washing houses

When you guys pressure wash a house prior to painting to kill the mildew with bleach. Do you tarp or plastic off all roofs, decks and driveways so the bleach doesn't stain it. Is there an easier way.

Thanks Dan

I agree with the above. It's all about dilution. Soak the surrounding area and pre-rinse the house.
I never cover anything and I downstream tons of bleach. I've never had a problem... yet.

You don't get shed dormers on wood shingled roofs over there eh?

LOL you've got me there. Cedar roofs are few and far between in this county. You see them a lot in the wealthier neighborhoods though.

In fact I am doing one in a month with dog house dormers and a really moldy/mossy cedar shake roof... Thanks for the heads up, I may have had to learn that lesson the hard way. I really can't afford to do any free roof cleaning this summer. :thumbsup:
