So, you’re finally ready to enhance the look of your home with an exterior makeover, including your driveway and walkway. The easiest and most efficient way to clean outdoor surfaces is with a pressure washers, but it can be intimidating to first-time users. Thankfully, pressure washing is pretty straightforward, but there are a few ways you can make this task even easier and more effective.
First, make sure you have the right equipment for the job – some pressure washers are better for tougher stains, and the angle of your nozzle can make a huge difference. Check out our guides to choosing a pressure washer, or stop by your Pressure Works location to get expert advice or rental equipment. If you haven’t used your machine before, be sure to read the instructions and safety information carefully before use.
While a pressure washer does a great job at removing dirt, oil stains and grime on its own, it will be even more effective when using chemicals and cleaners – getting the job done faster and saving you time for other projects. We have cleaners available for almost every type of surface, so be sure to check out our selection! Once your machine is set up, you’re ready to go.
Remove larger debris like tree branches and pebbles first by sweeping your surfaces. Make sure there are no children or pets nearby, and apply the cleaner to your driveway or walkway. Allow the cleaner to sit if instructed to do so on the bottle, and then spray it away. Rinse your surface once more for a complete clean!
