Pressure washing is the best and popular cleaning options among property owners. Renting a pressure washer has become a more popular option among homeowners looking for quick and efficient cleaning. Pressure washing your driveway, siding, and deck is extremely effective if done in an appropriate way. Unfortunately, the majority of people are unaware that there are various types of equipment used for the different surface. There are many risks of pressure washing. If one lacks in proper training, he will not only damage the property but can also end up hurting himself.
Lack of Knowledge
The most common mistake is to do it yourself pressure washing. People lacking in knowledge of how to use it will run into applying too much pressure. It is easy to underestimate the power of a jet of water, but many first-time attempts will end up carving strips out of wood decking, or etching lines into the home siding.
Much DIY pressure washer only loads their washer with water. If you lack in the appropriate ratio of cleaning solution mixed in, your cleaning effectiveness significantly reduced and probably lead you to apply too much pressure to make up for lost power. Water-only mixtures also spread mold spores around. The extra pressure and mold-related damages can cost you big money.
A thorough house cleaning needs an art of ideal tools and techniques. It is difficult to prescribe any single techniques because of the large difference between pressure washer models, but there are some general instructions that UHS experts can share to spread awareness about the risk of pressure washing :
Make sure you start with wider fan pattern and keep the nozzle moving. Always hold it at the distance as recommended in your user manual. Avoid blasting directly on to the corners, breath the lip of a window, or into dryer and attic vents.
We suggest pressure washing first if you also have decided to do the windows. Though not nearly as damaging or permanent issues, cleaning out of order will essentially make your cleaning effort worthless. So, that the cost of your rental paid for nothing. If you first clean your windows and then try to pressure wash, you will end up bathing your sparkling windows in the dirt and grimy residue.
Electrical danger: Make sure that electric pressure washers are properly connected and grounded every time. Also cautious of shock risks around the house, and also make sure that you are wearing rubber-soled shoes for extra protection.
If you’re still inclined towards a DIY method, make sure you find an appropriate method and equipment before you start. Don’t be afraid to ask questions or request a demo/training. You can find a pressure washer in various places. Supermarkets carry cheap models, while hardware store typically has the higher quality version available. Look for models with modern safety features such as; quick release trigger, warning labels, temperature control switches, rupture disks, thermal overload motor protection, ground-fault circuit interrupters, and backflow protection. If your model lacks any of these, look elsewhere.

Such as end of lease, planning to sell your property, planning to re-paint your property etc. In these cases, pressure washing is very important to get desired amount from rent or after selling the property.
