7 Steps to Power Washing Your Home

Here are the steps for power washing your home:

1. Choose the right pressure washer: You'll need a pressure washer with at least 2,000 PSI and 3-4 GPM to clean your home effectively.

2. Prepare the area: Before you start power washing, remove any furniture, plants, or outdoor decorations that might get in the way. Cover any electrical outlets, lights, or other fixtures to protect them from water damage.

3. Apply detergent: Apply a cleaning solution to the surface you're cleaning, following the manufacturer's instructions. Allow the detergent to sit for 5-10 minutes to loosen dirt and grime.

4. Power wash: Attach the appropriate nozzle to your pressure washer, and start at the top of the area you're cleaning, working your way down. Use smooth, overlapping strokes to avoid streaking.

5. Rinse: After you've power washed the area, rinse it thoroughly with clean water to remove any remaining detergent.

6. Repeat: Depending on how dirty the surface is, you may need to repeat the process of applying detergent and power washing.

7. Clean up: Once you've finished power washing, turn off the pressure washer and disconnect it from the power source. Rinse off any tools or accessories you used, and store them in a safe place.

It's important to note that power washing can damage certain surfaces, such as wood, so be sure to use the appropriate pressure and nozzle for the surface you're cleaning. If you're not comfortable power washing your home yourself, it's always a good idea to hire a professional - we have a few we can recommend!
