One of the most effective deep-cleaning techniques is power washing. But not all surfaces can be power washed.
Power washers are powerful tools and the pressure that comes from them can potentially cause damage to the surface being cleaned. They can also cause injury if not handled carefully.
To help avoid these kinds of misfortunes, it is important to know the surfaces that allow for power washing.
- Decks and patios
Decks and patios take a hard toll from elements and over time you may start to see dirt, grime and bacteria build up, causing a dull and unsightly appearance.
Fortunately, thanks to the technology of power washers, the dirt, grime, and other stains can be removed whether your deck is made of concrete, wood stone, or even pavers.
Gutter cleaning is one of those home maintenance tasks that should never be ignored.
That is why pressure washing is recommended at least twice a year.
A power washer will effectively blast out clogged dirt, leaves and debris off the gutters.
- Roof and siding
Damage from dirt and mold growth can dramatically impact the curb appeal of your home. But with deep washing, the roof can regain its original appearance.
Siding materials such as vinyl, aluminum and even fiber cement can also be power washed.
- Driveways and sidewalks
A pressure washer can also be used to remove stains from driveways and sidewalks.
Concrete and brick exteriors can also be power washed. They have strong surfaces to even survive the highest pressure in power washers.
Tips for power washing
We said power washers are powerful and can be dangerous. So special care should be taken when cleaning these surfaces.
The best option if you are not skilled in handling a pressure washer is to call the professionals.
