nuclear level cleaner? (by NE [PA]) Apr 6, 2024 5:28 PM
Message:

About to turn over an 18 year occupied unit that had inherited tenant for the past 10 years. Pigsty is an understatement. I donít care though because they paid me triple in rent for what I paid for the duplex. Time to remodel.

A lot of it is heavy cosmetic, but the walls and molding HAVE TO BE cleaned before painting. A pressure washer would be ideal since itís a combination of roach poo, animal & human grime and grease/dirt. All over.

I donít know how people live like this, but they were close to market rent the whole time, so oh well, I wish they didnít leave. I donít want to flood the unit out with a pressure washer though, so the plan is to fill the bathtub with hot water and some sort of cleaner and scrub away. What would you use? --24.152.xxx.xx

Can you buy TSP in Penn? Be sure to use long heavy duty rubber gloves! --71.38.xx.xxx

Sounds like some mental illness going on.

I'd start the show with a leaf blower and

and haz-mat gear.

Spic and Span is the same as TSP (tri sodium phosphate)

Mix it up and use a sponge mop on the walls, ceiling, everywhere. It will likely take 2 or 3 complete rounds of cleaning. Use rubber gloves and ventilation. Keep the gunk off yourself. Get an ozone machine and run it for 2 or 3 days, keeping all plants and animals out (they should be out already).

This is nasty work, so get a helper to do it if they are reliable and do a good job, not a half way job.

10 years rent--good deal, esp at market rate. --75.7.xx.xx

We've been using LA's totally awesome cleaner. Item 901092 at Lowe's. We started using it when we could no longer get TSP.

Krud Kutter or concentrated Simple Green might be viable options as well. --136.22.xx.xx

Message:

I think that you will need different cleanersÖ.all of them will have very strong fumes. Greased lightening, Krud cutter , and TSP. I would also get garden sprayers filled with pool shock.

Wear top notch respirators. --149.76.xxx.x

I use bleach and Simple Green and no dip-backs in the cleaning water. I don't like to dilute and redistribute the gunk. So I bring lots of rags. Just had my husband clean out his dresser today for clothes that I can cut into rags. My stash is running low! --72.135.xxx.xx

Tsp is good. If you want to get some odor fighting going, buy concentrated lysol in the little bottle. I used to use it as a disinfectant for washing cloth diapers. Powerful stuff! --64.246.xxx.xx

That is why I feel the need to do quarterly inspections.

I just got through recently scrubbing an entire kitchen in a smokers house with cats. I tried vinegar and water and it barely touched it. I used a heavy duty commercial degreaser from Sam's Club and it worked great.

I don't know how people live like that either, but lots do. You should see some over the road truck drivers trucks.

Don't blame the poor little piggies. --76.129.xxx.xx

Message:

6 x 6, what is the point of quarterly inspections when you bought the building & it was already in rough shape and they have already been there eight years? After they moved last week, I had a surprise roof leak in the kitchen of this unit and it took down 4-5 of those 12ď x 12ď smooth square ceiling tiles and was leaking right on the countertop. It literally had to be splashing all over her dishes and food and floor, etc.. The woman never called me. I have no idea how long it was going on for. It needs a little bit of tar on the flat roof above the kitchen, and once it dries out, it needs four or five square ceiling tiles. I donít know how long it was happening at the apartment, nor do I care.

This situation is totally different than other tenants who go through a tremendous screening process and I do an in-home inspection and then theyíre with me for a little while and I kind of know what to expect from them so the inspections are relaxed on them. --24.152.xxx.xx

6 x 6, my brother works at a large warehouse. He sees a lot of tractor trailer drivers. He said those People are absolutely disgusting. He has seen them go to the bathroom (#2) right in the middle of the parking lot. --24.152.xxx.xx

I have mopped walls. Try the purple simple green undiluted. Tsp is OK, if you get the liquid version. I dislike having to get the powder to dissolve. It settles in the bucket. Use a pump sprayer too. --172.59.xxx.xx




nuclear level cleaner? (by zero [IN]) Apr 7, 2024 8:44 AM
Message:

I wonder if a pump sprayer with pool shock and a little dish soap would work inside?

My upcoming rehab with smokers has me curious about other methods. Mine is not gross, just coated with tar and a little dust.

My go to is coating everything with oil based Kilz. Looking for a way to avoid that third paint coat if at all possible. --107.147.xx.xx

On the last cruddy place they used Awesome with a mop and a lot of rags. It did a pretty decent job. I do not want all the labor tho. --107.147.xx.xx

I wonder if this might be a good time for you to buy one of those battery operated bug sprayers to apply the cleaning juice to the walls, etc??? Lowes sells a 40 volt rechargeable backpack bug sprayer for not a lot of money. --73.2.xx.xx

I like the Zep products too. They have a foaming wall cleaner. --172.59.xxx.xxx

We use a backpack pump sprayer to mist the walls/trim and let it dwell. Old towels on the floor catches most of the run off. Then a sponge mop for rubbing action.

Fast moving air,(High speed fans) will dry out the drywall dryer than when new.

Just Dawn will do wonders.

It sounds like somebody's not doing their monthly inspections of all their rental properties for the last 18 years --71.207.xx.xx

If itís in this condition when you buy it, why inspect it monthly? Seems like a waste of time to me. --24.152.xxx.xx

Message:

Monthly!?! That would drive tenant to move. Even quarterly is too much for me. I don't like poking my nose in other's business, though it is necessary during screening.

I think NE handled this tenancy perfectly. A little clean-up, after tenants paid for the place multiple times over? Winner, winner, chicken dinner! There was just grime, not a drug house, or massive damage. Grime is easy. --72.135.xxx.xx

It depends on the size of the place. Would applying 1/4" sheet rock over all walls and ceilings be better, time and results-wise? --96.245.xx.xxx
