Because of the versatility and usefulness of pressure washing machines, more and more people desire to rent and use them around the house. This is also the case for commercial properties, as there are many interior and exterior areas small businesses can easily clean using pressure washing.
However, although versatile and very useful for cleaning all types of surfaces, DIY pressure washing is not advisable. In fact, without the proper training, operating a pressure washer can result in personal injury and property damage.
Reasons Why DIY Pressure Washing is Not Advisable
Because more and more people are renting pressure washers to clean the sides of their homes, driveways, walkways, pool sides, and decking, an increase of cases of property damage and personal injuries have been reported. If done correctly, pressure washing is very effective at cleaning all types of surfaces, safely. On the other hand, without proper training in how to use a pressure washer, it is very easy to unintentionally cause property damage.
For example, using too much water pressure around pool sides can cause damage to tiling, wood decking can become damaged, and if not careful personal injury can occur. Using too much water pressure is the most common cause of cases of property damage and personal injury, as it is easy to underestimate the power of highly pressurised water jets.
Sadly, many have unintentionally etched lines into their home’s siding, carved strips out of wood decking, and taking the paint off of surfaces such as vehicles, tools, and machinery. To avoid all the pitfalls associated with DIY pressure washing, it is advisable to hire a professional company to handle all of your pressure washing needs.
The Benefits of Professional Hot and Cold Water Pressure Cleaning
While many people are aware that pressure washing can effectively clean surfaces, most do not understand the differences between hot and cold pressure washing. Before any surface is to be cleaned, professional cleaners using pressure washers will determine whether to use hot or cold pressure washing.
Cold pressure washing is ideal for safely cleaning most surfaces, such as walkways, sidewalks, driveways, garage floors, and even parking areas. Cold pressure washing using lower water pressures can effectively and safely clean softer surfaces such as wood decking.
Hot pressure washing is very effective at removing tough stains, grease, oil, and chemicals off of metal, concrete, stone, and brick. Great care should be taken when hot pressure washing, that is why DIY pressure washing it not advisable because of the risks of damaging property and personal injury.
