The following are answers to the frequently asked questions we receive of a general nature. You will find answers to the frequently asked questions that are product-specific on the respective page about the product.
Will the Wash Safe products harm my plants or endanger my children or pets?
No. Our products are safe for pets, plants, and people.
Can’t I just use bleach?
Be very, very careful with bleach! Many homeowners and contractors have tried bleach to clean roofs. First of all bleach is toxic and corrosive chemicals are disastrous to vegetation, not to mention can stain and dry out your shingles. Furthermore, the results are temporary as the bleach cleans only the surface leaving the spores and roots below the surface untouched, and the growth is back in a few short months. Also it is very easy to experience a streaky roof as the bleach may mark the shingles unevenly.
Do your products have an EPA number?
An EPA issued after the Environmental Protection Agency takes what can be several years of testing, and mega bucks to ascertain that your product does "kill" the intended target. The EPA issues a number then you can advertise with the word "kills" and we can't.
Although our product does not currently have a registered EPA number, we felt that up to this point as a small company, we are not going to go through the considerable time involved and the expense. Perhaps we will do so in the future.
Our products do actually "kill" mold but until we have an EPA number we can only advertise the ability of the products to safely remove and clean mold and mold related fungi. It works, I have done it.
Our active ingredient "Hydrogen Peroxide" is expensive to produce, particularly at the strength that we need, but yet is safe for consumer use. Consumers usually can relate to Hydrogen Peroxide as we have all used it to clean our cuts and scrapes.
Our experience is that a growing number of consumers will pay a few extra dollars for a product that is Green, rather than a product with ingredients impossible to even pronounce. When the buyer sees the contents as being Hydrogen Peroxide, most feel quite comfortable to give it a try.
We position our products as alternatives to the more toxic, not as a replacement. Lets face it, there will always be those who don't give a damn, but the statistics show a steep rise in the numbers of buyers who do give a damn and will go the extra step. It wasn't long ago that your industry realized the same fact and have reacted accordingly.
