Pressure washing, or power washing as it is often referred to, can be a very important part of your exterior painting or cleaning project. Pressure washing the exterior of your home or business can ensure
that unwanted debris and stains are removed prior to applying a coating.
An additional advantage to power washing your home or commercial project is that the loose and flaking coatings that are no longer performing as needed can be removed. This is very important because the coatings you apply are only as good as the foundations you prepare for them in regards to proper adhesion.
When pressure washing, often additives are used in order to better clean certain surfaces. Two common cleaners used are simple household chlorine bleach and products such as Simple Green. There are also products especially designed for particular applications such as removing chalky build up from failing coatings on metal surfaces to those used primarily to break up grease or other lipid containing substances.
The secret to a good pressure washing job is combining the right equipment and cleaners along with a skilled, patient operator. One thing to be aware of is that high pressured jets of water can damage the substrates that they are intended to clean if not used with care and caution.
While most exterior projects are perfect candidates for power washing, some are not. Make certain that you discuss your project with a professional service provider to ensure that your situation is right for high pressure cleaning processes.
