We have designed the labels to be bright, colorful and job specific. What we mean by that is that the labeling has been specifically named and designed to prompt a buyer to think “oh ya…I have that problem” and then to buy.
Hydrogen Peroxide-Based Products
With hydrogen peroxide as our active agent, our products not only remove moss and algae but actually destroy the roots, which dramatically extends the regrowth protection.
The molecular composition of our Pacific Northwest Green Cleaning Products is H2O2…which is called sodium peroxide..or in other words, hydrogen peroxide, a liquid, mixed with “alum” to give a powdered or granular physical characteristic. As it cleans (think of something like alka seltzer), it releases the extra oxygen molecule. This foaming action is what loosens and lifts the visual part of the moss. Then as a result of the release of this molecule, the cleaning solution merely biodegrades into H2O after 4 – 6 hours, leaving absolutely no residue or pollutant on the surface.
We used the “visual” term in the last point purposely, as the Pacific Northwest Green Cleaning Products cleaners are one of the few if not the only moss and algae removers that actually penetrate beneath surface being cleaned, attacking the roots and spores that have formed inside the material. This means that, as most cleaners look like they have solved the problem, the cause is still there and ready to begin regrowth immediately. This is of particular concern with painting as I warrant there isn’t a painting contractor out there that hasn’t been recalled a year or so after painting because of the algae growing again under the new paint causing all sorts of problems, particularly with wooden surfaces.
With the 850g container diluting into 8 gallons, the cost per gallon is very competitive. It is difficult to compare apples to apples, but when your sales team point out to their customers that the long-term effects of a surface cleaned using Pacific Northwest Green Cleaning Products is probably 3 times that of a competitor that only surface cleans, and that the dilution ratio makes the per unit price very competitive, it provides a much easier sell even if a customer is purchasing on a price point comparison only. Our experience has shown that if the salesperson offers such rationale, the purchase decision for Pacific Northwest Green Cleaning Products becomes much more compelling.
Dry vs Liquid Cleaners
Liquid cleaners lose their potency when opened, period. Dry do not. This means when a customer purchases our products and they only use a portion, when they come back to use it again it is still 100% effective whereas a liquid can lose of to 90% of its effectiveness over time, not to mention that a liquid cleaner is usually 90% water to begin with, (which unfortunately is what the customer is paying for). All you need to do is look at the MSDS forms to see the large percentage of water in the bottles.
More and more contractors are finding, particularly in commercial contracts, that the specs call for using environmentally sensitive products wherever possible. In most cases, that caveat “whenever possible” is the weak link as few other moss and algae cleaners offer contractor sizes. No contractor is going to clean using a hand-held spray bottle…it is way too expensive and way too time-consuming (which in a contractor’s world is the same thing). We offer 40# contractor’s containers that will effectively clean, for example, 4 or 5 typical sized residential roofs, and allow the use of high volume sprayers for application.
