With easy access to rental pressure washing equipment homeowners looking to save a buck or two are all too readily lured by the convincing sales pitch at their local hardware store. Unfortunately, many property owners are unaware of the damage that can be caused by rental pressure washers due to their lack of training, knowledge and experience. According to the professionals at DM Carpet Cleaning, pressure washers have become a popular rental choice for home owners looking for a fast cleanup of their decks, walkways, patios and siding. Unfortunately, for many homeowners the results are often disappointing leaving a trail of expensive repairs and replacements in their wake. Many property owners think of pressure washing as hosing down a dirty surface with a jet of water under pressure but the truth is a successful pressure washing service is part training, part experience and part science along with the necessary skill to handle the equipment safely.
DIY Pressure Washer Mistakes
Two of the most common and expensive DIY pressure washing mistakes include:
• Too much water pressure: one of the most common DIY pressure washing mistakes is to apply too much water pressure. If you are inexperienced you may underestimate the power of the jet of water or stand too close to the surface and end up accidently damaging your wooden decks or your homes siding.
• Cleaning in the wrong order: cleaning out of order causes nowhere near the amount of damage that applying too much water pressure can cause but it will render your cleaning efforts useless. For example if you clean your windows before you begin pressure washing your siding you will end up with dirty windows that will need to be cleaned again.
