Be Aware of The Power of Power Washers
Many people use the terms power washer and pressure washer interchangeably, but they are slightly different. Pressure washers shoot out water at high pressure, and power washers add the element of heat to the high pressure water. While the addition of heat will help to clean surfaces better and faster, it can also help with the destructive aspects of a pressure washer as well. There are many surfaces that should not be cleaned with a power washer because they are unable to withstand the force of the heated water.
Painted surfaces can easily be stripped of the paint that was put on them. In some cases, this is what you want, but if you only want to clean the surface and not remove paint, you will need to use a different method. If possible, try to test a small area to see what will happen with a power washer before going ahead with the full item’s surface. Wood materials are also a surface to be careful with, as cleaning them can clean them but it could also remove any paint or stain that they have. Again, if that is the goal that is fine, but if you only want to clean them, another method is recommended.
Old items, no matter what they are, should also not have a power washer used on them. With their age, they will likely disintegrate or get damaged. It doesn’t matter what material the item is made from, anything that is old should not have a power washer used with it.
Power Washing Is a Great Cleaner
While you might be wondering if you should use a power washer at all, there are many instances where it is nearly the only way to really get a surface clean. Any sidewalks that you have, for example, can benefit from using a power washer on them. The addition of the heat will help to remove any stuck-on items, like chewing gum, and will power away dirt and grime and make your sidewalks look like new. The same can be said for any brick or stone buildings in Brookfield, Medford, White Plains, Bronx, Danbury, New Windsor, and the surrounding areas.
