Careful With That Power Washer!


A power washer, also called a pressure washer, is a powerful tool. So powerful, in fact, that it can cause damage quickly before you even realize what you’re doing isn't washing at all. How can you make sure that you’re not causing unnecessary damage to your home, drive or deck?

Here are some ways a power washer can damage your property and what you can do to avoid it.

  • Concrete erosion. According to the experts it doesn't take much pressure to begin the concrete eroding process. Concrete isn't entirely solid. The porous surface allows water to seep into the minute structure and expand it, causing cracks and worse.
  • Extreme damage to decking. Similarly, high pressure water can also damage the wood on decks causing it to expand, splinter and crack. It's recommended to wash and seal the deck with the right product for your climate to prevent any unnecessary damage.
  • Damage to siding. Whether or not pressure washing your house will damage your siding will largely depend on what kind of material is used on the exterior of you home. Pressure washing can damage vinyl siding, wood siding and stone for many of the same reasons listed above.

To avoid any issues you should use the right power washer. Many have attachments that are designed for different materials. If you’re concerned about your ability to use the pressure washer correctly contact a local professional pressure washing business to help you out
