Pressure washing for exterior cleaning can be a handy tool, and anyone who visits a home improvement store can buy a pressure washer and take advantage of its power. Unfortunately, so many people underestimate the power that pressurized water can have. Pressure washing away years of dirt and grime is actually pretty fun, if not downright satisfying, but not taking a pressure washer seriously can be downright dangerous.
In order to remove the dirt that can’t simply be scrubbed away, pressure washers shoot out water at a high pressure to easily penetrate and giving it the power of 100 scrub brushes. Unfortunately, if turned on less sturdy material, such as skin, it can easily lacerate it and cause serious damage.
Furthermore, DIY pressure washing can also mean damage to your home. Using too strong of pressure on easily damaged areas like your roof or softer stones can cause damage that is expensive to repair. It kind of makes the benefits of pressure washing a moot point if you have to replace damaged areas afterwards.
The above are the two primary reasons why you should skip DIY pressure washing and allow a professional to handle it. Professional pressure washing companies not only allow you to safely reap the benefits of their service, but they know how to do it right. Do you know how much pressure to use on brick as opposed to concrete? Certainly you could Google it, but as professionals who make the choice every day, they know the right answer without having to look it up.
