April 17, 2009, Newsletter Issue #163: Preparing Your House for Painting

Tip of the Week

Using your electric power washer to prepare your surfaces for paint is probably the easiest and fastest paint removal method available to you!

The way the high pressure washer does this is by removing the residue from old oil or latex paint to help the new coat adhere better. There are a few things to keep in mind. Follow the tips on house preparation and safety.

If your exterior paint contains lead, do not use powerwashers until you have contacted your local health department for instructions and recommendations on how to handle this type of paint without endangering your health.
