How to Clean Vinyl Siding
When done incorrectly, power washing can be a dangerous job both to yourself and the material being clean, so Mauro urges caution when using a power washer. Fortunately, most power washers come with the same color coded system Mauro described to help select the right tip for the job.
For this project, Mauro used a 3600 PSI Gas Pressure Washer [https://amzn.to/3weih0X], which is manufactured by DeWalt [https://www.dewalt.com/] and can be rented from home centers.
How to Install Deck Rail Lighting
Heath installed sections of 3’ White LED Landscape Strip Light—12VAC—1P67 Waterproof, which is manufactured by SuperBrightLEDs [https://www.superbrightleds.com/]. Before buying, Heath suggests confirming that the lights are UL rated.
