A Guide to Safe Pressure Washing, South Hill, Washington

Pressure washing is an incredible tool for removing years’ worth of grime from a surface with ease. However, the highly pressurized stream of water can damage the surface if you target the wrong material or don’t know how to do it properly. The experts at Dacey’s Power Cleaning in Puyallup, WA, recommend knowing what surfaces are safe for power washing and how to approach washing them.

What’s Safe for Pressure Washing

power washingMost surfaces around the house can be pressure washed, assuming the individual doing the washing knows how to approach the surface safely. Some common surfaces that homeowners like to clean with a power wash include exterior siding, driveways, paver patios, sidewalks, garage doors, tile roofs, outdoor furniture, and vehicles.

What You Should Avoid Washing

Appropriate caution should be exercised with painted surfaces since the wrong technique could strip the paint off the surface. A pressure washer can also remove the stain from wood if done improperly, so it’s best to let a professional handle it. Old materials that may be weak in places and roofs made of anything other than tile should not be pressure washed.

How to Safely Wash

While power washers are available for rent, it’s always well worth the cost to hire a professional to operate it. Every surface requires a unique technique to be safely cleaned. An expert knows what nozzle to use, how far away from the surface to hold it, and what direction to move the stream. They can also tell you if there’s something unique about your surface that’s unsafe to target with a jetted stream of water. Many also offer soft washing, which can provide similar benefits on surfaces that cannot be pressure washed.

The professionals at Dacey’s Power Cleaning offer complete services ranging from fence cleaning to house washing. They use only eco-friendly chemicals in their cleaning, and they will assess whether soft or pressure washing is most appropriate for the surface you want to be cleaned. To schedule an appointment, call (253) 335-0539 or visit their website for examples of their dramatic results.
