Pressure Cleaner Pro Brother of Film Star

“It’s not what you know, it’s who you know.”

On set the concrete of the funeral scene was pressure cleaned by a brother of a starring actor in the film with an electric AR Blue Clean AR383 pressure cleaner. The steps he used to choose the pressure washer to use and the accessories to use are as follows:

  1. Identify the surface to be cleaned and assess the dirtiness level. The pro who cleaned the concrete in the funeral scene identified that it was not very dirty. It only had minor dirt and grime with little grease and caked on mud or gum. Therefore he decided that a surface cleaner and electric pressure cleaner would do the job.
  2. Deciding on the nozzle or accessory to use. A professional quickly needs to identify whether to use a speciality attachment or which degree nozzle to use. In the case of a flat surface like a concrete patio a surface cleaner is a great accessory to use. It makes the job much quicker and easier. Karcher makes great accessories and so does AR for electric washers. The choice of nozzle would be for the job as well. A 0 degree nozzle would be used to spot clean very caked on dirty surfaces. A 40 degree nozzle to clean a car.
  3. Using detergent? Most pros decide to use detergent because it makes cleaning the surface much easier. Deciding on the detergent to use is tricky. Most pros will have a preference but for most weekend jobs you can just use an all-in-one detergent based on the surface you’re cleaning. There will usually be a special one for concrete, for wood and for your car.
  4. Cleaning. When cleaning the surface be sure to clean in a safe manner. Be sure to wear correct protective clothing. Be sure not to spray people walking by.

Did You Know?

I don’t know about you but I love movie trivia.

Here’s some cool facts about Death at a Funeral that you probably didn’t know:

  • The actors who play Daniel and Jane – Matthew Macfadyen and Keeley Hawes – are married in real life.
  • The movie was filmed very quickly: 7 weeks.
  • Peter Dinklage, who played the dwarf, also plays Tyrion Lannister in Game of Thrones.
  • Movie was remade in 2010 for the US audience and starred Chris Rock.

 

Lawn Mower Used in Funeral Scene

Beautiful LawnWhen Daniel’s Father died and he had to organize the funeral he wanted to make sure the setting was pristine as his Father would have wanted that.

The steps he took to find the venue to hold the funeral were quite unique and he ended up picking the one with the nicest mowed lawn. His Father worked in landscaping and even created a lawn mower reviews catalog so he knew that the venue had to have a lush green lawn.

The decided upon venue happened to be a resort maintained by a landscaping company of the utmost quality.

Days before the service Daniel visited the resort to ensure everything was setup and to ensure the event would go off without a hitch. Of course, if you’ve seen the movie you know what happens. Needless to say the event is eventful, things happen and it makes for a great movie.

In real life if you are looking to plan a funeral or pre funeral service/event make sure to think more about who you are inviting than where the event will be held. A nice lawn is great but if the people all fight then the thing will be a disaster.
