Whether You're Prepping Your Home For Painting Or The Market, DIY Pressure Washing Can Do More Harm Than Good.

Diy pressure washing

These days, many people spend more time at home and sprucing up their living space in their free time. Homeowners are also being introduced to the benefits of pressure washing and trying to tackle the job themselves. Unfortunately for these homeowners, they come to find, often too late, that inexperienced pressure washing is damaging and dangerous.

Pressure washing equipment is powerful and difficult to maneuver. That said, handlers with back problems or arthritis are in for a rude and painful awakening. Many people underestimate the strength and force of a pressure washer and end up using enough pressure to cause damage to their home. DIY pressure washing can cause gouging and splintering in your wooden deck or carving lines into the siding on your home.

The Art Of Pressure Washing

When it comes to DIY pressure washing, there are many things to consider, such as what type of equipment to use on what surface, which is why it is always in your best interest to leave it up to the professionals. The most common mistake homeowners make when pressure washing is applying too much pressure, or not adding the proper detergent to the washer, or none at all. A professional technician at Locklear's Pressure Washing will have the right tools for each job, understand the appropriate amount of pressure to be applied, and use the correct detergent for each surface.

Aside from the physical damage DIY pressure washing can cause, you greatly reduce the significance of your cleaning efforts. Mold and pollen spores can be spread, causing allergy flare-ups and other health concerns. This also extends mold's reach on your home, allowing it to grow in more areas around your home.
