Why Pressure Washing Is Best Left To The Professionals

Why pressure new

Anyone who has ever set foot in a hardware store has probably seen pressure washing equipment for sale or rent. The basic machinery isn't that hard to find if you look, and for a fistful of dollars, you could bring this gear home with you for a day. There are many people who seem to think they're Clint Eastwood all of a sudden when they've got a pressure-washing gun in their hands, ready to battle back the invading dirt and grime that's taken over their exterior surfaces. If you fancy yourself a water spraying cowboy, hang your hat for a few moments partner, there's a lot that needs to be considered.

Do You Have The Right Tools For The Job?

Where are you going to be blasting that jet stream of high-powered water? If you thought every surface needs the same type of pressure washing, you're already stepping out on the wrong foot. Using the wrong equipment can lead to disaster because every surface material is different in how they need to be cleaned.

For example, some projects such as house washing require a pressure washing system known as soft washing. Now, as its name suggests, soft washing uses extremely low water pressure that showers a potent mixture of heated water and cleaning solutions. Soft washing get's its cleaning power from this combination of softly showered-on solutions, and it works wonderfully at breaking down attaching substances so they can be rinsed away. Standard pressure washing is no good for house washing, as it can peel away paint and destroy protective sealants.

Are You Trained And Experienced Enough To Avoid Injury?

While you may think showing off battle scars could win you some points with your friends or your date, a scar is the least of your concerns when using pressure washing equipment. Anybody can rent a pressure washer just like anyone can rent a car, but that doesn't mean everyone who does so is properly trained and experienced. Pressure washing equipment is heavy machinery, and if something goes foul, the consequences could be dire. Besides expensive property damage, pressure washing can lead to torn tendons, nerve damage, blindness, and even death. That blast of water coming through the pressure washing wand is more powerful than many people think, so unless one knows exactly what they're doing, there's a huge risk of horrible injury.
