Pressure Washing – How to Avoid Damaging Surfaces

Damage to surfaces being cleaned occurs because the impact force of the water pressure exceeds
the durability of the surface. Bare wood can be penetrated, paint can be peeled off, etc. You can vary the force of your power washer by controlling:

  1. The angle of the surface being cleaned
  2. The distance of the nozzle from the surface being cleaned

Important Safely Tips…

  • Never use a narrow high pressure stream of water on soft surfaces susceptible to damage.
  • Use the 25 ̊ angle quick connect nozzle when cleaning windows. Be sure to place the nozzle approximately 4 to 5 ft. away from the window with the nozzle at 45° angle. Squeeze the trigger and vary the spray pattern and angle until optimum cleaning efficiency is achieved.
