Get the Best Results when Pressure Washing Your Home

You can power wash most surfaces in your residential exterior such as wood, granite and brick, but it is better to avoid less resilient surfaces like hardboard.

Reputable manufacturers will include a list of recommended pressure washer chemicals with the equipment, so you can check which product is best for every surface of your home.

Always Remember:

1. Never use bleach, it could damage your power washer.
2. Avoid spraying flowerbeds and shrubs
3. Avoid light fixtures, windows and mailboxes.

For best results, follow the manufacturers instructions or consult a power washer equipment expert if you have any doubts about the suitability of a power washer to the materials in the exterior of your home.
