Using a pressure washer, you can clean so many different types of outdoor surfaces. It is why so many homeowners turn to pressure washing to get even their dirtiest outdoor tasks taken care of. However, one of the reasons that pressure washing is so effective is the high pressured water that is used to clean and the cleaning solutions that break down the grime. When you don’t know how to properly use a pressure washer, it can be an incredibly damaging piece of equipment. Many homeowners decide to take on pressure washing alone, but it can leave lasting problems. Big Moose Pressure Cleaning is here to talk about some of the mistakes that are often made when homeowners attempt to clean something on their own rather than calling on the pros to get the job done.
The first problem that we often see is injury due to lack of personal protection during the cleaning process. It is especially important that you wear protective eyewear so that your eyes are injured while using dangerous equipment. You should also always wear boots to protect your feet when you’re working with this type of equipment as well.
Like mentioned above, the high amount of pressure that is used when pressure cleaning is a big deal as well. You should be using certain amounts of pressure when washing different surfaces. There isn’t a one size fits all setting. You need to know what kind of pressure should be used when pressure washing so that you don’t permanently etch the surface or cause other damage.
There are different nozzles that are used in different applications. If you don’t understand what type of nozzle to use, it can leave you with damaged surfaces as well. The more narrow the nozzle, the more focused the stream of water is going to be. Wider nozzles are going to be less likely to cause damage to whatever it is you are cleaning.
The angles you use while pressure washing can have an impact on your final results as well. For instance, when you’re cleaning siding, you need to make sure that you’re washing it from the right angle so that water doesn’t get trapped up inside the siding and cause mold and mildew issues. It can even lead to flooding if you aren’t careful. Using the right angle when you’re washing different surfaces can have a big impact on your results.
You need to make sure that you’re using the right cleaning solutions for the different types of cleaning projects you are doing as well. If you aren’t using the right solutions, the cleaning can be completely ineffective or even leave the surface damaged.
