Spring is here in the Twin City area, and it’s time to power wash away the chemicals road crews have used to keep the street clear and safer this past winter.

Many homeowners will go out and rent a power washing machine or buy one. They’ll spend lots of cash on accessories and detergent that may or may not be environmentally friendly. Some might even complete a few of the “honey-do” tasks their spouse had been nagging them about or that they’ve been pushing themselves to do. 

However, they could have saved themselves time, toil, trouble and money by calling the power washing professionals at RTD.

You see, it’s not as straightforward or inexpensive as you might think to get the right pet and plant-friendly detergents, set the correct pressure and stay focused to get those chores done before it’s time to return the rental. 

You might even spend more on DIY than you would to get those projects done promptly and professionally.

What Are Some Projects That Shouldn’t Do with a Power Washing Machine?

There is an entire list of things you shouldn’t power wash. For example, many believe their brick siding is strong enough to pressure wash, but that’s not entirely true. Whereas the bricks are sturdy, the mortar that holds them in place is not and should not be power washed. 

Here are some other things to avoid:

  • Asphalt shingles
  • Gutters
  • Lead paint and most painted surfaces unless you plan to repaint.
  • Cars, trucks and vans
  • Windows
  • Air conditioning units
  • Electric control panel
  • Plants and other living things

Although some of these seem obvious, you’d be surprised how many do these things without knowing the damage they can cause. 

Call the professionals at RTD to give yourself the weekend to enjoy doing the things you enjoy without worries about killing the plants and pets or weakening your home’s structure.
