Improve Your Home with the Best 5 Pressure Washing Tips in Mount Pleasant, SC, & Surrounding Areas

Pressure washing can instantly clean your deck, siding, patio, driveway, sidewalks and more with great results. If you are looking to pressure wash your property yourself or are looking to hire a professional to do it, here are our craftspeople’ s 5 favorite tips about pressure washing.

Pressure Washing Tips

  1. Before you begin, test a small patch to make sure the pressure does not cause damage.
  2. Test a patch to see if the cleaner, soap, or detergent you are using does or does not cause a stain.
  3. Wear ear and eye protection at all times to prevent injury.
  4. Spray in straight, even, and non-overlapping strokes. Water stains and damage can occur if this is not followed.
  5. Different nozzles are color-coded to mark the water pressure and angle of the spray. Different pressures have greater or lesser power and can cause damage to certain surfaces.

Pressure Washing and Color-coded Nozzles

The nozzles of pressure washers and power washers are color coded to show what angle and pressure the nozzle has. Each one has different effects and strengths so make sure you know what you are using to avoid causing any damage to the surface you are cleaning. The strongest and most dangerous stream is red at zero degrees.

  • Red Nozzle: 0 Degrees
  • Yellow Nozzle: 15 Degrees
  • Green Nozzle: 25 Degrees
  • White Nozzle: 40 Degrees
  • Black Nozzle: 65 Degrees
