The pressure washer in itself is very lightweight and not a hassle to carry. Compared to other machines and tools that walk on four feels, it is light as a feather. Home owners can be seen dragging their power washers around the neighborhood easily.

Residents can carry the machine to upper story levels of the property to reach spaces and spots not possible from the ground. It can be easily carried to the roof or used to clean spider webs, dirt, and soil.

You can also carefully rearrange delicate stuff, so it does not break or get lost in the de-clutter.

Cleans fast and quickly

Garages are cleaned once a year during spring cleaning when everything needs to be sorted. The pressure can become overwhelming, but the power cleaning makes the entire process a lot easier.

Pressure cleaning secrets

Which pressure cleaning tip is the best for you?

Power washers come with five power cleaning tips, each with unique advantages:

The red spray tip

The red spray tip creates a zero-degree pattern with its most powerful internal structure. Due to the immense,robust structure, you need to be very careful while handling the tip. The pressure may cause the surface to crack, so avoid spray to object contact. 

The yellow spray tip

The yellow tip produces a spray pattern at 15 degrees. The particular nozzle is perfect for power washing garage floors or removing stains off of harsh surfaces such as concrete.

The green spray tip

The 25-degree spray pattern is called the green spray tip. The tip provides gentle pressure for delicate surfaces that may break or crack easily if washed with intense pressure. The green tip is perfect for cleaning patio furniture, patio decks, and pathways. It is also perfect for washing your car.

The white spray tip

Thisspray is gentle and easy to control with its tip. It is best for cleaning internal surfaces such as soft stucco walls or hardwood floors. You can use the white power cleaning tip for window and siding rinsing as well. The white spray tip releases pressure at 40 degrees.

The black spray tip

Lastly, the black spray tip produces spray at a 65-degree angle. The spray is the most gentle out of all the available tips. It is mainly used to apply detergent and soap water to surfaces before switching the tips for actual cleaning. Essentially, use the black tip to wet the surface.

Chemicals or soaps

You must only use chemicals that are safe for power cleaning. These will come mentioned in the power washer guide, or you can do your research too. Suppose you are unsure where to apply said detergent or soap. In that case, many power washers come with an injection component that provides continuous spray. 

Test before spraying

Before applying the pressure to its intended surface, test by standing a few feet away from the surface but not directly aiming at it. Slowly raise the power washer wand and swing it in windshield wiper motions. Once you have gotten its handle, aim it at the surface or object you want to clean.

Plan before spraying

Do not spray directly at the object. Pressure cleaning involves intense pressure, and you may easily crack or break the objects. You could crack the windows, uproot postage boxes, submerge flowers into the water pool, or fill vents too quickly. Hold the trigger in a downward direction and begin with washing the edges first.

The bottom line

If you have used a power washer before, you would know the instant resurfacing of a clean surface is very satisfying. It provides instant gratification if done right. With some water and a little bit of effort, your property will look exactly like the day you purchased it.
