Power washing is the easiest way to remove dust, mud, loose paint, grime and dirt. This method of cleaning uses a high-pressure mechanical sprayer that sprays water at ultra-high pressure on the surface to be cleaned. Depending on your need and the surface to be cleaned, you can change the pressure settings of the power washer. They find use in both workplace as well as residences.
House power washing is extremely effective due to the use of high-pressure water jet as well as the cleaning property of water. The power washers have a very simple set-up of a high-pressure pump, a high-pressure hose and a nozzle. By varying the nozzle, you can get water jets of different shapes. By changing the pump settings, you can even vary the pressure.
House sidings can be easily cleaned as a part of house power washing using a power wash. This method is better than any other alternative because the siding can be cleaned effectively and in an extremely short duration. First step to cleaning the sliding is determining the material used in making the siding. Two types of siding are metal and vinyl sidings. A simple tap will determine the material through the sound it emanates. Another method to determine the same would be to rub your hand on the siding. If your hand is covered in a chalky paint, the sliding is made from tin, aluminum or metal.
Determining the material will let you determine what type of cleaning chemical is required. When purchasing a cleaning product, look through the label and determine if it has any harsh effects on the specific siding material. While vinyl sidings are immune to most cleaning products, metal sidings require more caution. Once you have determined the product you have to use, it is time to mix it with hot water. Create the full setup for cleaning the house, from the ladder to installing power washers in the areas where you want the cleaning done.
When house power washing, it is best to start from the bottom and then go up. This might appear to be counter-intuitive, but makes sense because the flow of the cleaning product while going from top down can lead to permanent discoloration when finishing the surface.
Once you have applied the cleaning material for house power washing, it is time to rinse. Rinse repeatedly until the surface is clean and the vinyl looks as good as new. Be careful to never let the water run dry because this can seriously damage the power washer.
