Uses for Pressure Washers
In industry settings, pressure washers are used for de-icing planes, cleaning railroad freight cars, and sanitizing food processing equipment. For homeowners, the uses of pressure washers beyond decks is to brighten their home’s curb appeal by using light and medium-duty versions of pressure washers to clean:
- Outdoor play structures
- Brick-and-mortar walls, patios, and walkways
- Garbage cans
- Garage floors
- Garage doors
- Outdoor furniture
- Hot tubs & pools
- Maintenance-free soffits
Pressure washers are also great for fast prep of outdoor surfaces you plan to paint or stain. Pressure washers quickly strip peeling paint and remove old stain from wooden siding, decks, fencing and furniture. Just wait for it to dry, and you’re ready to paint or stain.
Professional Pressure Washing
Pressure washing is a fast and effective way to clean exterior areas of your property. To have it done right, without the hassle and expense of renting a power washer, call Mr. Handyman for professional power washing services and get the clean deck, siding and driveway you want, fast.
Renting a power washer yourself can cost more than $200 per day. When you call your local Mr. Handyman, he will arrive at your property with a pressure washer, ladders, the right-sized hoses, and any desired detergents or degreasers necessary to expertly power wash the areas you need cleaned.
That means no traveling back and forth to the rental location, standing in line, prepping the machine, cleaning, re-fueling or returning the machine by the deadline—and your deck, siding, driveway or garage floor will look like new.
Importance of Power Washing
A thorough pressure wash can reduce wear and tear by removing the dirt,
mold, algae, chalk, insects, and weeds that break down and cause damage
to wood and masonry, and degrade protective paint and stain.
Pressure washing also makes outdoor play equipment more sanitary for the kids, removes plants and oil stains from driveways and walkways, and acts as the perfect prep for an exterior painting or staining project.
Just make sure you pay attention to the pressure. Each application has its own optimal nozzle and pressure setting. Power washers with low-degree nozzles (especially the zero-degree nozzle—usually colored red) can splinter wood and carve into concrete.
