About Turbo Blast
Turbo Blast claims to be an industrial-strength outdoor spray cleaner that removes mold, mildew, and stains without rubbing, scrubbing, or damaging the surface. In fact, the manufacturer claims you just need to spray Turbo Blast, let it sit for 60 seconds, and then rinse it away.
In order to accomplish this, Turbo Blast is claimed to contain millions of microscopic “scrubbing molecules” that penetrate the surface and loosen and break up deep-down dirt, so all you have to do is spray with water to remove mold, mildew, and grime.
Because of this, Turbo Blast is claimed to be “like a pressure washer in a bottle” that can safely deep clean most outdoor surfaces, including brick and mortar, concrete, fencing and decks, patio furniture, tile roofing, and more.
Now that the rain and snow of winter has given way to the warm weather and clear skies of Spring, you’ve probably got a lot of outdoor cleaning to do. But will Turbo Blast help you clean more thoroughly and quickly, or will it be a huge disappointment? Consider the following:
Is Turbo Blast Really Like a “Pressure Washer in a Bottle?”
The reality is that comparing Turbo Blast to a pressure washer is like comparing apples to automobiles. Why?
Because, as the name implies, pressure washers get their cleaning ability from the force of water pressure against solid surfaces. Pressure washers also have interchangeable tips that can be used to change the water pressure, and to change the water’s coverage area.
As s such, pressure washers are ideal if you need to clean large areas of dirt and grime in a relatively short period of time.
On the other hand, Turbo Blast is a chemical of some sort that’s contained in a small spray bottle. Instead of cleaning using water pressure, Turbo Blast is claimed to use “microscopic scrubbing molecules” to penetrate the surface and break up the dirt and grime.
However, if you need to clean a large area (such as a deck shown in the product’s commercial), using Turbo Blast would be extraordinarily inefficient, not to mention expensive. And you’ll still have to break out the garden hose to wash Turbo Blast away!
With this in mind, Turbo Blast might work well for small spot treatments, but will probably leave you frustrated if you need to clean anything larger than a few square feet.
What are “Microscopic Scrubbing Molecules?”
We’re not told anything about the ingredients contained in Turbo Blast, other than that it uses “microscopic scrubbing molecules,” which ultimately provides zero usable information.
As such, there’s no way to know if Turbo Blast is safe for you (or your pets or plants), how well you can reasonably expect it to work, how much liquid is contained in each bottle, how long you can expect it to last, how big of an area it will clean, or tons of other important details.
Other Dirt & Grime Removers
A common tactic among “As Seen on TV” manufacturers is to take a relatively ordinary product, create a bunch of hype around it, and make it seem like it’s the greatest thing since sliced bread.
We mention this because there are dozens (perhaps even hundreds) of other exterior dirt, grime, and mold removers available on the market, including at your local hardware or home improvement store. In addition, many of these options might be less expensive than Turbo Blast (and some even connect to your garden hose for extra spraying power), especially considering the non-refundable S&H charges, which we’ll talk more about next.
Turbo Blast Pricing & Refund Policy
One bottle of Turbo Blast is priced at $10 plus $7.95 S&H, although you’ll be able to purchase a second bottle for $1.95 S&H at checkout.
All Turbo Blast purchases come with a 30-day refund policy, less S&H charges. This means that you’ll likely lose more in S&H charges than you’ll receive as a refund if you’re dissatisfied with Turbo Blast.
With this in mind, if you’d like to request a refund, you’ll need to contact customer service at 855-721-3353.
Can Turbo Blast Help You Spring Clean?
Chopping to the point: Considering the plethora of exterior cleaners you have to choose from, the fact that we’re not informed what ingredients it contains, as well as its high, non-refundable S&H charges, we might recommend browsing local options before placing your Turbo Blast order.
