Are you concerned with whether it is safe to pressure wash certain exterior surfaces? Do you want to avoid damaging your surfaces with heavy cleaning machinery? When it comes to pressure washing in Orlando, you will be surprised that there are many different surfaces that can be safely washed with this equipment. Our professionals are trained to take extra caution when we are cleaning your homes or businesses, and we understand all the safety concerns that go along with the process. There are a few types of exterior cleaning surfaces that can be cleaned with a pressure washer.
Concrete is one of the most popular surfaces that can be pressure washed. Driveways, patios, porches, and walkways are always being cleaned with high pressure from a pressure washer to remove dirt build up, stains, and other contaminants. Pressure washer can actually leave a concrete surface looking like brand new once again.
With the rise of composite deck boards, many people have been wondering whether they require special treatment during cleaning. However, most composite decking can be pressure washed with a lower pressure. This will allow for proper cleaning, which will remove any dirt, debris, and contaminants that can stain the composite. Although these surfaces are recommended to be rinsed with the jet-stream hose nozzle, you can still pressure wash them using low pressure for quick results.
Another popular surface for homeowners and business owners to clean is their siding. Aluminum and vinyl siding can both be cleaned using a pressure washer. When working with aluminum, be careful not to use a high pressure setting, because even though it is heavy duty, it can still be bent or peeled off with high pressure. These dents can be costly and difficult to repair. Vinyl, however, can be cleaned much faster using a pressure washer than by hand. You just want to avoid cleaning at strange angles, as this can cause water to leak into the home.
Cleaning brick is actually recommended to prevent infestations, mold, and algae from growing in the grout. Because it is a porous material, it will need to be treated with a low pressure soft-wash that will remove these issues before they become a problem.
Many people are also concerned with their wooden exterior surfaces, especially decks and fences. Wood can be pressure washed using the right amount of pressure. Pressure treated wood, which is most frequently used in construction projects, will require a bit more pressure than when you clean siding. When pressure washing your wooden fences and decks, you will likely notice a large difference before and after because wood will soak up all of its contaminants. It is advised to pressure wash your wood before you paint or prime it in order to properly prepare the surface.
These are five of the main surfaces that can be cleaned safely using a pressure washer. If you are concerned whether your surfaces fall into these categories, contact our professionals in pressure washing in Orlando to hear more today.
