Oh war that he had to go put the rate you're disconnected so please call back. 2601870. And we will put you at the top of the heap second to Europe last and final question. Something else to re news if you're listening. There was a tax rate came in and they were beta common reference what you Warner. Use one those. Around cleaning the extra year you ought to work condenser. In the Sid please mixture that ray knows that the water pressure from those. If it's too high he can also been the aliens in and I have seen them in the those fins. It don't take much to bend and you look at Roman they'll start there's going bending so. You definitely make sure you don't do that and also as I described to you use a shop that. You know suck out the grass in the debris things like that. That you wanna make sure use a nice offers bras don't get too gross of casualties than those events. Two in that as well. Another hit you they would consider. And I know this is probably a little extreme and most people want to do it. But if you would take the time to do it does not hurt it certainly helps. Is that when you or cutting grass or we eating meat eating around Europe you your outdoors. Unit you're here in this cadets are people call compressor. Or turn it off. BYU doing that because what happens is while it's running its Droid in. The air through those fences blown out of the fame. So if it's drawn there in around the bottom of its. And you're in it to weed wacker and your reading around and it's sucking on a grass or at your cutting grass and aggressive being flipped him as being sucked into the fins. While it's running it you know if you turn off the won't be as extreme. And of course you can turn it back on after you're done. And you know the word but this much like symbols those folks open it to the extreme but that's always. Always an option you can consider if you would reduce the amount of debris that goes into that I stored outside unit. While you're you know landscaping and cutting grass rabbit. Oh reading what do you you're you're doing don't put a chemical on it other than equal cleaner. Actually was at a house earlier in the week and that they hit there a landscaper spraying roundup. And they spray roundup on the bottom portion of that out to a unit. In the round up you can see over repeated use was eating away the fins that bottomed pool so. Don't don't do that picture it's it's either just regular water or it's a product that's designed specifically for cleaning pools. Recognition event particles. Or contents equals with for the purpose. All right so I'll get back to your questions also your text you can send me attempts at 87870. Or direct your questions live that you can you be called when numbers sponsor wrote for. 2601870. That's 2601870. Or fears here at work or you know position to do either one of those he would ask your question either later on today or even when the week. He can go to our Paul's house FaceBook site you can push request and there'll be happy interest there. Throughout the week let me look at a couple of these text because they haven't really had that problem that detects let's see we have. Would connect you to remove mold buildup or in single roots. So if if you look at Shia groups and you've seen the dark colored itself a sexy phone night. Growth it's in the shingles. Most times those singles don't have a entirely. A phone guy edited to its so therefore he gets he gets ugly. I am I know companies that do this I am not a thing and cleaning your roof and the reason guys who classically root about the Clinton the phone guy or fewer repeat at least build up. You know at the dead sure or in the belly ups that you look at the cleanest but the more time to calm your roof. This would foot traffic and if you could have any pressure to it where there it is from from oppose our press to wash or chemical. You are at risk of removing the top Eric aggregate that's a small little pieces of of of gravel that's on top right. Those little round parts as aggregate on top. That is your Wear layers that that's actually done protecting the asphalt. In the coding underneath it synergy removing that if you could clean it did this can be part of the process. You're reducing the life he single and and this is one of those times when I say go Woodson go into denial denial in this situation. It's a good thing I know you're rift doesn't look pretty I've apologized for that is really. Not much you can do that is not an adverse effect do you use why fewer single. So. The the cause it's not gonna hurt you single. And the causes farmed out growth is because you don't have an atomic a fun guy component your roof when you replace roof give a ship that has that. But in the meantime and ignore it's not gonna hurt the like piecing if you leave it alone. It's a systematically knock can be very pleasing. Cycle look good. But I would much rather have an ugly roots and have roots that you lose about six years or seven years or worse. Longer off the top of that you knew at the very end of the cheese like that goes you can clean it and clean it. So heartless and could go to a commercial break and come back as he ray called back. If you have a question I give us call 260187. You know get back some more eager text. Right after this as well it 878 said the attacks will be right back at that slogan where. Welcome back to the hope crucial let's go straight to phone lines and speak with race a ranked. You with me started on all. You another question. All. Or groups or would hurt all root. Hope to build farm return really well he'll point out. Is there are a little quicker but Arctic shoot up their work so coach Bert. Or street or orange. Can't go to a formal expert. Terrible. You know what most jobs are sealed bearings. Depends on the age how old they are. Yet there's still burns okay there there's not much you can do but I mean you can get up there in if you took off and clog your route safely go up there and and either some graphite or some silicon. Would certainly help I think the silicon populace ought to cause a rain but refused to graphite. You try it but more like you do root removing and replacing. Social purpose Shura or arguments are preparing insurance copper wire. Yeah I animus should be in said the various SECO and I would think I would sprayed the upper low point of the shaft. And as in the sex and the parents. Who think sits up and soak in the Yemeni. And I doubt that don't work it's worth a try. And what all the washed up all these lose or wrong.

That the birds were sitting on top of and they were depositing there. The goods at their rear end right there open open and that the you know say hey we would do something about this so how would go. Probably vote home probably. At the very beginning opposed to it once a month and then you know near the end I was sort of once every six months because the birds and a new not go there anymore they got out of that habit. But it's it's a gel type product called hi would you give it. I was buying a gallon container that you it's you would place it at the very top of the shutter in this case you replace it with a birds and landing in what happens is it it it.
