Below is one of many e-mails that the clean4life.net website receives daily,
It was refreshing to read your article "THE TRUTH ABOUT THE MISUSE OF SODIUM HYPOCHLORITE (CHLORINE) WITH RELATION TO ROOF CLEANING IN FLORIDA."
I have been searching for information on this topic for several weeks, as I am wanting to stop the use of driveway cleaning in our small community.
They left the chemicals on all townhouse driveways for more than 3 hours, then washed it all down our storm water drain. Consequently, I was very ill (burning, stinging, breathing, etc.) for that entire day as our home was overcome with toxic fumes, which filled our neighborhood for at least 6 hours. It took a week to regain my health.
I understand this is illegal in regard to the clean water act, however, I am yet to find good information to present to our association - which will also include restricting the use of bleach for roof cleaning - which is a new treatment preference here.
It would be very helpful to communities if someone who knows chemicals would put together a summary of the typical chemicals used, their impact, and alternatives. Then we would have the necessary information for our management associations.
We would love a chemical free community - and will visit every resident to sign a petition once we know the specifics of what to ask for.
If you have any information or ideas that can help our cause please let me know.
