The 3 P’s: A Simple Guide To High Pressure Cleaning
Power (PSI), Position and Patience
– A common misconception about high pressure cleaning is that the more PSI you use the faster the cleaning and the quicker you can get done. Don’t use more than the recommended levels of pressure to clean a surface. Excessive force and abrasive levels of pressure can damage a surface. The damage caused can be permanent. You should always conduct a sample patch before you commence, and carefully examine the surface for damage. Please see our article for an overview of recommend levels: Click Here
– Another common misuse of a pressure cleaner would have to be using the equipment to clean and wash the exterior facade of a painted home. Don’t use a excessive force to clean such surfaces. We highly recommend a soft-wash approach for these scenarios. Please see our article for an overview of soft-washing: Click Here
– Position relates to the movements of the pressure lance. You don’t want to position the pressure lance to close to the surface. Attempt to maintain a constant distance from the pressure lance to the surface you are cleaning. A careful approach and controlled movements will prevent ‘streaking ‘or ‘zebra marking’ on the surface.
– Avoid rushing, and manage fatigue by taking regular breaks. Operating a pressure cleaner can be exhausting. Don’t push yourself to rush, take your time. A careful and methodical approach is always recommended. Follow these basic tips and you too can achieve a professional result.
