How to pressure clean: Step By Step
Pressure cleaning also known as power washing in varying parts of the country is a simple process that when done right leaves a lasting impression to people passing by.
Pressure cleaning requires a gas or electric machine (we recommend gas powered due to its power and reliability) that uses regular garden hose pressure, creates the pressure and shoot it out through the gun wand, surface cleaner or other adapter.
List of needed tools include:
Gas or electric power washer 2 GPM and up
Approximately 100 foot of high pressure hose
Pressure Cleaning Gun or wand
Approximately 50 feet of garden hose (connecting to the homes outlet)
We also recommend a ball valve and surface cleaner make the cleaning process easier and less time consuming!
Step by Step:
1. First connect your garden hose to the outlet and to the power washer.
2. Connect your high pressure hose to the power washing machine and to the desired tool. (Gun, surface cleaner etc)
3. Open the garden hose valve and let the water flow till the line is bleed for air leaks.
4 Once the line is cleared and ready, turn on your power washer while trying to keep your hand on the trigger to keep the pressure open.
5. You are ready to pressure wash any part of your homes exterior just be sure to wear protective eye wear and a mask if using harsh cleaning chemicals.
Caution: If the pressure is left unattended for long than 30 seconds it will harm the pumps seals with hot water created by friction of the recirculating water in the pump. Professional pressure cleaning companies use buffer tanks and relief valves to keep their heavy duty machines cool and lasting longer. If you need to take a break or can not relieve your power washers pressure we suggest you turn it off until done.
Pressure cleaning should be done at least yearly to kept up to date and not let bacteria smelling or let the homes curb appeal fall behind. Remember a good pressure cleaning can raise your homes value especially before a sale.
