Pressure Washing 101

Pressure washing is a cleaning method which takes advantage of highly pressurized water and uses it as a spray. When used properly, pressure washing is a powerful and effective way of cleaning off a wide variety of surfaces. How can pressure washing be used to your benefit?

Benefits of Pressure Washing

Dirt, gum, old paint, and other grime can quickly accumulate on outdoor surfaces. Aside from being aesthetically displeasing, such contaminants can mask greater damage if left unchecked. From sidings and gutters to sidewalks and driveways, pressure washing can be a simple and affordable way of washing old paint and gunk off of surfaces. It’s highly effective at cleaning out drainage systems as the water is able to thoroughly wash out pipes. While brick and stone are commonly cleaned surfaces, pressure washing is also safe on wood surfaces such as decks.  At Regency Cleaning, we offer pressure washing as a specialty service.

Challenges of Pressure Washing

While pressure washing is powerful, its incorrect usage can cause damage and even lead to injury. The highly pressurized jets of water need to be used carefully in order to harness their full potential. Regency Cleaning’s highly trained technicians know the exact pressures and techniques required to clean off each individual surface. They’ll be able to optimize usage and best protect your patios, walkways, and any other surface that you need cleaned. If you fancy trying your hand at pressure washing yourself, be sure that you know what you’re doing! For example, some roofs won’t hold up well to being sprayed and you could even end up damaging your shingles. You’ll also want to make sure you understand the range of degrees that nozzles are available in.
