Pressure


    One of the most common uses for early pressure washers was scraping barnacles off of dry docked ships. Now that's pressure washing used properly! Another example would be blasting the mud off of a four wheel drive that has seen some action! Most driveways and brick can be truly pressure washed. However, your house is not nearly as tuff as the hull of a ship or concrete. The siding is soft. The paint is soft. There are windows made of glass and doors with weak seals. Some types of brick have a baked on face that high pressure washing can easily sheer off. Even your bare wood deck can be left marred, splintered and fuzzy.

     

    When it comes to residential power washing, the pressure washer is most correctly used as a delivery device for soap, as well as sending soap and water great distances. The right collection of nozzles, cleaning agents, and adjustments to the unloader and engine idle give an experienced technician the ability to turn a pressure washer into a good tool for house washing.

     

    A little pressure may carefully be used here and there to deal with a stubborn cob web or nest, but never used as a principle method for removing mold and mildew.
