Pressure Washing 101

The power and heat of pressure washing blast away accumulated dirt on surfaces like patios, driveways, decking, brick walls, wood fences, windows and siding. It is ideal for heavy-duty jobs like removing grease or tough stains. However, it is important to remember that the high water pressure can damage surfaces that are too delicate. Surfaces such as old brick or stone, stained or painted materials and some types of roofing can be easily damaged by overuse or inappropriate use of a pressure washer.

How do you mix sodium hypochlorite for pressure washing?

Mountain View Window Cleaning consists of a pump powered by a gas engine or electric motor that focuses water at a narrow point through a nozzle. The powerful blast of water is perfect for removing dirt, oil and tar from concrete, as well as for cleaning other outdoor surfaces in a fraction of the time that it would take to scrub by hand.

When choosing a pressure washer, it is important to select the right nozzle for the job. Different nozzles provide varying degrees of power and flexibility. A 65deg black-tipped soaping nozzle is great for fortifying clean water with a cleaning solution, while a 0deg red-tipped jet nozzle is similar to a water laser and should only be used with extreme caution (think of it as “water rocket science”).

When hiring a professional for a pressure wash, they will know the proper PSI and GPM to use on your home’s surfaces. This will ensure that your property is cleaned effectively and safely without causing any damage.
