How to pressure wash a house (Page 2)


Step 4. To prevent streaks on house siding, start pressure washing on the bottom and work up. Use the same approach whether you’re using plain water or soapy water.

 

Step 5. To rinse the side, start at the top and work down. The clean water will flush away any dirt and soap residue and leave behind a dean surface.

 

CLEANING OTHER OUTDOOR SURFACES

 

A pressure washer also works on surfaces like wood decks. Sometimes a quick spraying with plain water will do the trick. But more typically, the deck has to be cleaned chemically and then rinsed with plain water.

 

 

Concrete steps, walks and driveways respond very well to pressure washing. Because the spray tip can be held so close to the surface without causing any damage, usually water alone will do the trick. But oil stains on a garage floor will require a detergent wash and possibly a prewash with a degreaser solution.
