If you have recently added steel siding to your home or business, or bought a building with steel siding, you may wonder how best to maintain this exterior. Steel siding has become a hot trend in exterior home and building improvements and for good reason. Durable and beautiful, steel siding is a great option to give protection to your building’s exterior during the harsh winters in Minnesota. The good news is that it is also easy to maintain using power washing.
A garage is more than just a spot to park your car.
It’s a space that you expect your car to be kept safe, clean and protected from the elements. You wouldn’t let oil, debris, and garbage sit on the floor of your garage at home, and you certainly wouldn’t want that at your commercial parking garage. Your customers may not remember your garage for being clean and tidy, but they most certainly will remember it for being dirty. You want your customers, visitors and clients to drive and walk into a space that paints a positive picture of your company and brand.
As your business grows or experiences periods of increased productivity, it is important to project a professional image to your customers. There are two ways that RTD Power Washing can help you improve some of the most important physical representations of your business.
What is on the restoration agenda this year for your business? Whether you are planning a complete painting project for your commercial buildings, need graffiti removed, or need to restore wood fencing, surface preparation is key to ensuring the money you spend on restoration will be a wise investment. A clean, stripped surface for staining or painting is imperative for most types of surfaces, which starts with removing dirt, debris, and existing coatings without damaging the surface. This is best performed through hydro blasting.
In Minnesota, many businesses forego outdoor cleaning until spring, allowing the winter grime to accumulate on their exterior surfaces. While many of your neighboring businesses may take the same approach, this is an opportunity to make your business stand out from the rest. The winter Minnesota sun still shines, and it can show all the dirt and soot that’s left behind on the exterior of your business. A winter pressure washed cleaning is just what you need to make your business look its best; glowing like a diamond amongst the other dirty buildings on your block.
Salt and chemicals for clearing ice from the roads can be tough on your commercial fleet. Whether you have five or fifty, your investment into your fleet vehicles is significant, and you want to protect that investment. Keeping your commercial vehicles clean, even in the winter, can have many benefits, making it worthwhile to make power washing them a priority. [Read more…]
It may be freezing outside, and the snow may be flying, but taking action now can put you ahead of the game when it comes to getting things all spruced up and looking nice for spring. Whether you are a homeowner, business owner, the owner of a fleet of trucks or heavy equipment vehicles, RTD Power Washing is here to help your home, business, or equipment sparkle all year long.
Has your business been the victim of “tagging,” or other types of graffiti? It can be frustrating to have your commercial property vandalized, detracting from the professionalism of your brand. Removal of graffiti takes specialized equipment, and skill to ensure it is properly removed without adding toxic chemicals to the environment. There are options to “green clean” away graffiti while protecting your property.
If you have a car, you have likely either washed it at home, washed it at a self-washing station, or taken it to a car wash. You have used a sponge and gotten all of the dirt and grime off of your car’s exterior and have likely cleaned the interior well enough to make it sparkle. In most cases, this process is completed in under an hour, if you do it yourself, or under 10 minutes at a car wash. Before you know it you are on the road again and ready to wash your car within the next month or two. However, if you own a commercial fleet of tractor trailers, this is not the same experience you have had washing your fleet. If it is the same experience, you are doing your business a disservice.

The summer is one of the busiest times of year for most businesses that deal with consumers, including freight shipping. Aside from the holiday season, people are buying items at an incredibly fast pace during the warmer months. They are enjoying more outdoor entertainment, conducting more home improvement projects, and keeping an overall fast paced lifestyle that leads to consumerism. As a result, your commercial fleets are on the go from sun up to sun up, only stopping for regulated stops as needed. This type of constant movement allows dirt to attack your fleet on a regular basis, making your constant advertising look unkempt and downright ugly. To avoid this issue, it is a great idea to maintain a regular fleet washing schedule for your commercial fleet.
