Pressure cleaning is the use of high-pressure water spray to remove dirt, grime, moss, mildew, and other growth from building exteriors and outdoor surfaces. It’s commonly used to clean sidewalks, patios, decks, driveways, parking lots and other exterior spaces in homes and businesses. A professional-grade machine pumps water through a hose and out a nozzle at a high rate of speed. Different attachments at the end of the hose control the size and shape of the spray, as well as the amount of pressure. The nozzles also can be adjusted to target specific areas of the surface being cleaned.
Using the wrong pressure washer nozzle can damage the surface of your home or business, so it’s always best to leave this type of work to professionals. Choosing the right nozzle and spray pattern can help prevent concrete damage, broken window seals, wood or composite decking damage, punctured brick walls, and other expensive damages.
Before starting to pressure wash, you should move or cover plants and other items that could get sprayed. You should also shut off any power outlets that are in the path of spray, as well as close windows and doors to prevent water and electricity from mixing.
In addition to improving the appearance of your house or business, regular pressure washing can reduce damage and prevent the formation of mold, mildew, moss, and other harmful growths that can damage or stain your siding, paint, concrete, and other exterior surfaces. It can also help to prepare a property for painting or other renovation work. pressure cleaning
