5 Pressure Washing Tips for Your Pensacola, FL Area Home

Reliable Pressure Washing Tips for Homes in Cantonment and Pensacola

A pressure washing can make your home, deck, patio, sidewalk, and driveway look brand new. If you are about to complete this project yourself, or you are looking for professionals to help, here are our top tips on the topic.

Tip 1

There are different nozzles for you to use on a pressure washer for different results. The pressure and types of sprays with each nozzle are color-coordinated to dictate the angle and pressure they work at. Too harsh of sprays can damage or strip a surface.

Tip 2

If you use a detergent, soap, or cleaner while pressure washing, test these on the surface you are cleaning first, only in a small corner, to make sure there is no damage or discoloration.

Tip 3

Protective glasses and hearing items will help you stay safe while operating the pressure washer. While gas powered ones are louder, both gas and electric pose the threat of flying debris while using.

Tip 4

Spray in even, neat lines to avoid overlap. Overlapping strokes can cause marks and water stains which will not show well at the end. Do not hold your sprayer at one specific point because this can cause damage while cleaning.

Tip 5

Test everything first before you begin pressure washing! This will make sure nothing is damaged by the pressure washers’ pressure. Test a small corner first.

Erase the grime and dirt built up from years on your home. You won’t be able to believe the results when you see how clean your drive, siding, and more can be. Whether you will be hiring professionals to complete this service for you, or if you will be doing it on your own, there are a few safety steps to take such as wearing protective gear and understanding the different settings, stream pressure, and more.
