What Can You Pressure Wash Safely?

Power Washing

It’s no secret that professional pressure washing in Sarasota, FL, still remains one of the most effective ways to get your home or business looking clean within hours. However, what isn’t common knowledge is which parts of your property you can clean with a pressure washer without breaking the surface.

As the name suggests, a pressure washer refers to a high-pressure cleaning tool with a fast and heavy water flow. And unfortunately, using a pressure washer without training or on a delicate surface can crack or even disintegrate materials that aren’t made for pressure cleaning.

Below, we will look at a few surfaces that pressure washing companies can clean safely and the risks attached to power washing them without proper expertise.

Roofs and Gutters

Roofs and gutters take the brunt of moisture from rain and will often form mold and mildew because of that excess water. Thankfully, both durable home fixtures can withstand professional pressure cleaning.

However, despite their durability, power washing companies will treat both of these fixtures carefully and only clean them on their power washer’s lowest settings.

Decks and Patios

Decks and patios represent the outdoor fixtures we want to keep clean the most. These places are where many homeowners hold family gatherings, but a patio or deck covered in dirt will make these meeting spots unappealing and unusable.

Deck and patio paver cleaning using power washing won’t damage the paver sealing, and one thorough wash will obliterate the debris collected on these outdoor surfaces. However, old wooden decks can partially disintegrate with exposure to pressure washing if they have dry rot. So before you call a professional cleaner to power wash your deck, be sure that it can handle the heavy water flow.

Fences

Almost every homeowner has a fence in either their front or back yard. Because of their popularity, fences rank among the most popular candidates for pressure washing.

However, not every fence is the same. Some made from durable materials like vinyl can easily withstand pressure washing. Wood fences, on the other hand, might not be strong enough to stand up to washing without damage.

Driveways

It’s hard to find an exterior home fixture that attracts more debris than a driveway. Not only are these surfaces constantly exposed to inclement weather, but they also become prime locations for foot and vehicle traffic. With all they have to endure, driveways frequently develop tough stains, dirt collections, and mold growths.

Thankfully, concrete and gravel driveways are sturdy fixtures that easily withstand pressure washing. And with minimal risk of damage, professional cleaners can use their washers at full force to remove all tough debris from the surface.
