About Us

Dedicated Educators

The education you need, custom tailored to your needs... Every year thousands of folks buy a pressure washer and decide to start a cleaning business. Some are successful, most are not. After spending years in this cleaning industry,  we realized there was a need for training in this business...real training ...hands on training.

Welcome to Spray Wash Academy! The cleaning field is a vast and broad industry. We wanted to help simplify it a little bit and offer comprehensive hands-on training and education to cleaners, whether they are already in the industry or starting a new pressure washing business from scratch.

From events, conventions, trade shows, webinars and in-person live hands-on training at our state of the art classrooms in Tallahassee Florida, we hope you'll find Spray Wash Academy to be a valuable tool in furthering your pressure washing career!

We came from very humble beginnings...The owners of Spray Wash Academy, Ray and Tonya Burke, are cleaners still to this day. Our daily and nightly grind involves getting dirty, sweaty and cleaning things. It is the meat and potatoes of our operation with Spray Wash Exterior Cleaning. Its our goal to pass along to you what we've learned that makes us  different than the average cleaner!

Ray Burke

Ray began pressure washing in late 2009 simply as a way of trying to feed his family. He made most of the common mistakes that any pressure washing guy would. After getting involved with industry  organizations, Ray became a national speaker and trainer... when he's not managing the day-to day crew activities at Spray Wash Exterior Cleaning.

Tonya Burke

Tonya is pure energy! Her non-stop effervescent personality acts as the glue that holds Spray Wash Exterior Cleaning together on a daily basis. As salesperson, administrator, and scheduler, Tonya understands the  needs that a cleaning business faces. She also understands the customer's psyche and how to sell!

Course Catalog

We offer a variety of certification courses along with mentorship, hands on training and much more.  No one ever opens business and plans to fail, but often times they have failed to plan.   The cleaning industry is quite unique ...very few people wake up one day and decide "Hey, I want to wash buildings for a living!", therefore many people stumble their way into the cleaning business , making tons of mistakes along the way and failing to realize the incredible financial opportunities of the cleaning field.   One of our main goals is to shorten the start-up time and learning curve by offering quality courses over a variety of disciplines.
