What Can you Clean with a Pressure Washer?

Sep 15, 2017

Pressure or power washing is an effective technique for cleaning the exterior of your home. It’s important to know which outdoor items can and can’t be cleaned with this type of washer, as the high pressure used to expel the water can cause damage to certain surfaces. Let’s take a look at popular items and surfaces that are safe to power wash and things to be cautious of when using this beneficial piece of equipment.

What Can you Clean with a Pressure Washer

How Does Pressure Washing Work?

Pressure washers are equipped with a motor that powers a pump which pressurizes water from your garden hose and expels it through a spray wand. You can adjust the pressure level depending on the items and surfaces you wish to wash.

What’s Safe to Pressure Wash?

  • Vehicles – Cars and trucks are safe to power wash, especially their undercarriage, but be sure to not use too high of a pressure setting, as this can strip the paint from your car’s exterior.
  • Outdoor Furniture – If you don’t store your outdoor furniture away during the colder months, it can be very dirty come Springtime. Power washing provides a deep clean and makes your furniture look brand new.
  • Patios and Decks – You might not notice all the dirt that has gathered on these surfaces over the years, but pressure washing will surely change that. Your deck or patio may be a completely different (but brighter and more beautiful) color than it was before cleaning. Just be sure to use a lower pressure setting so you don’t gouge the wood or harm other soft surfaces.
  • Driveways and Sidewalks – These are surfaces that can withstand the most intense amounts of pressure, so wash away! Pressure washing can help remove oil leaks and other stains left on your driveway by vehicles.
  • Grills – Grime and grease can be hard to remove from your grill with simple handheld scraping tools, but a pressure washer can have your grill looking like new in no time. Be sure to detach any electrical or propane hookups before washing!
