3 Handy Ways To Use Your Power Washer
Power washers (or pressure washers, whichever you prefer) are incredibly useful and versatile pieces of equipment around the home and are a complete game changer for professional cleaners. They turn certain cleaning tasks that would be difficult labour into a walk in the park. Here are just 3 of handy uses for your power washer.
1: Cleaning Driveways & Parking Areas
Cement and brick driveways are hard wearing and can look great. However over time dirt, grime and mildew can build up making your once beautiful driveway a bit of an eye sore while also increasing the risk of people slipping and falling, especially in winter. If you cover the driveway in the correct cleaning products and set your power hose to a lower pressure, you can bring your driveway back to it’s former glory in minutes.
2: Cleaning Decking
Depending on the type of wood your decking is made out of, pressure washing can be a fantastic way to save time and effort when cleaning it. Most hardwoods usually stand up to pressure cleaning without taking damage. But just to be sure, go to an inconspicuous part of your decking, hold the washer the correct distance from the wood surface, use a wide nozzle and a lower pressure setting and test it out in a small area to make sure the wood isn’t being marked or etched. Once you’re confident there will be no damage, work along the length of each board with the grain until you’re left with a decking that looks as good as new.
3: Cleaning Patio Areas
Have a tile or concrete patio that has seen better days? Your power washer is the perfect tool for the job. You don’t have to be as careful about your patio area as a wood decking and the results are remarkable.
There are countless other uses for these incredible tools. Cleaning driveways, decking and patio areas are just a drop in the bucket.
