The Art of Pressure Washing
If you’re thinking about painting your house this summer, then you should know by now that the first step is somehow cleaning it. There is no faster or easier way to do this than with a pressure washer. But pressure washers are powerful tools and if you’re not careful, you’ll end up with half of your shingles in your neighbor’s yard wondering how you managed to get your bedroom floor wet. That’s why we recommend you read The Art of Pressure Washing, brought to us by the good people at Fine Homebuilding.
The article covers all the finer points of pressure washing, such as how to hold the sprayer, what the different colored nozzles indicate, and how to deal with mildew. For this last one, the article recommends washing the house with a chemical mix and a garden sprayer before having at it with the pressure washer. But what about spraying bad chemicals all over your rose bush? Well, the article tells you how to deal with that too.
Read the article for yourself.
