Uses for pressure washers
With a vast range of uses, pressure washers are a very handy piece of kit – our customers use them for a whole host of jobs ranging from cleaning vehicles and drains to washing down garden furniture, decking, patios, block paving, building sites, industrial premises, plant equipment, and many other surfaces.
If you are planning to clean decking using a pressure washer, which can provide a very effective method of getting rid of built-up grime, remember that wood is relatively soft and needs to be treated with care. With too much pressure applied incorrectly, the surface of your decking could become marked or damaged. Try to use as little pressure as possible – first lowering it and trying a small, discrete area to see if it is effective – before turning up the pressure bit by bit until you get the desired results. Remember to also keep the nozzle some distance from the wood, only moving it closer until you can see dirt being shifted from the surface effectively.
Similarly if you are cleaning paving with a power washer remember to check the stone manufacturer's guidance to make sure it is suitable for pressure washing. Always test a small, discrete section and get the settings right before you start work on larger, more visible areas. Keep the lance head about 150-300mm from the paving, adjusting the nozzle to a 'fan' rather than jet setting if possible. Keep the lance at a shallow angle of approximately less than 30 degrees from the horizontal to prevent damage to any jointing material.
Health & safety
A pressure washer creates high pressure and velocity and can be used to remove loose paint, mud, dust and other dirt from buildings, paving, drains, patios, walls, decking, vehicles and concrete surfaces. Used correctly, they are very effective tools, but care needs to be taken to prevent damage or injury. Always follow the manufacturer's safety instructions carefully. If these units are used carelessly they could damage surfaces (e.g. delicate wood); cause injury to people or animals; propel objects and cause damage to property; or even break up surfaces such as tarmac.
