Power Washing, What Not to Do

Benefits of Hiring a Pressure Cleaning Company

Power washing is a great thing, and we all agree on that. However, when homeowners use a pressure machine, they make many mistakes, so the best way of preventing a mistake is knowing the mistake itself.

One of the most common mistakes is using too much power in the pressure washer, so it is very important to start with a low pressure and increase it slowly. When you have too strong steam of water, it can peel off the paint from the siding, cut bricks and even concrete; therefore, you should never underestimate the power of a pressure washer. If you are willing to obtain professional results, we suggest that you hire a pressure cleaning company, they will know how much pressure to use, the right cleaning chemicals and much more.

When using a pressure washer, you should always use biodegradable chemical to wash with, because when you use harsh chemicals, although it will do the job, you will spoil practically everything around it. For example, if you are cleaning your patio all the plants and flowers around the cleaning area will die automatically, so if you need a professional, make sure you contact a pressure cleaning company that uses only 100% biodegradable products.

Staying in a narrow spot will mar the aluminum siding, and on brick, it will cause an efflorescence effect. This means that the salts will evaporate causing visible damage to the brick or stone. Be careful when cleaning around the garden because most plants will die if you put them under plastic even for a short time. If you hit them with the washer, they will certainly die as they can’t take too much pressure.
