What You Need to Know Before You Rent a Pressure Washer

Have you been interested in renting a pressure washer to clean the exterior surfaces of your home or business?  Keeping your outdoor surfaces clean using a pressure washer can almost make them feel brand new once again.  It can also eliminate mold and mildew growth, remove pesky stains, and promote the lifespan of your exterior materials.  There are many great reasons why people love our pressure washer rentals in Los Angeles to keep their home in the best shape possible.  Before you get started with your pressure washing to-do list, there are a few things that you need to know.

Be Aware of Safety Measures

Operating a pressure washer can be dangerous, so you'll always want to put safety first.  Be sure to never spray towards an electrical outlets or wires.  Also, never aim your pressure washer at any other individuals or pets, as this can cause extreme injury or even death.  When you are pressure washing, you should always wear safety equipment, like goggles and closed toe shoes, to prevent injury.

Avoid Damaging These Surfaces

When you first set out to pressure wash, you may think you can wave your wand at any exterior surface.  However, it is important to only clean the right materials in order to avoid damage.  You should always avoid painted or stained surfaces, as the pressure washer may lift the paint.  Also, you'll want to avoid pressure washing anything that is old, as it can cause breakage or disintegration.  

Rent the Correct Detergents

Sometimes you may want to enhance your cleaning efforts and use a soap or detergent that is compatible with your pressure washer.  Before you do so, you'll want to research your particular soap or detergent to make sure it is compatible with the job you are performing.  Check to ensure that the material you intend to clean is suitable for that detergent.  There are specific cleaners for specific materials, so you'll always want to keep some handy for these particular jobs.

Make Sure Pressure Washing is For You

When you want to clean your exterior features, you want to be sure that pressure washing is the right method of cleaning for you.  Sometimes warm water from the hose will clean the area just fine.  When you are looking for more of a deep clean to remove dirt, stains, debris, mold, or mildew, then pressure washing is likely the route for you.
