Here are our top 5 pressure washing tips thanks to our pressure washing services. If you are looking for pressure washing services, or are planning to pressure wash your home, here is some advice to help you along.
Before you pressure wash a surface, be sure to test out only a patch to make sure you have the right pressure, nozzle, cleaner, and are washing a surface that can handle the pressure.
Spray in even, straight, lines. Do not overlap strokes because that will leave visible water marks. Do not linger in one spot either with the pressure washer on because this can wear or damage the surface you are cleaning.
Between the loud noise of a gas pressure washer and the spraying away of dust, dirt, and grime, and possible breakage of a surface, you must always wear protection. Protective eye gear will protect you from any fly away debris that might get into or injure your eye. Hearing protection will help lessen the pressure of the noise.
Pressure washing can use different cleaners, detergents, and soaps. This will improve the quality of your clean but be sure the product does not stain or discolor a surface by testing a small patch first.
Pressure washers have different attachments and tools for different jobs. Nozzles are universally color coded to tell the pressure and angle of the nozzle. The angles determine the pressure and the effectiveness of the stream.
If you are in need of pressure washing services, or you have the tools ready to go at home, these tips are here to help you begin your next project. Wear protection, be familiar with your tools, or plan ahead of time to hire the right professionals for the job.
