Power Jet Washing is like MAGIC!! The difference is extreme and the results outstanding.
Walls, Driveways, Decking needs to be kept clean to look good and to add value to your home. We all know they get extremely dirty, stained, mossy and discoloured. Sometimes a garden hose, soap and elbow grease just aren’t enough for things to come clean. You have a choice try to do it yourself or get the professional in.
How Do Power Jet Washers Work
Pressure jet washers can aggressively blast things clean with water jets pressurised at about 75 times the pressure of a garden hose. Or, they can gently spray with lower pressures for delicate cleaning. Pressure jet washers are commonly rated by PSI* and GPM* ratings.
The difference between Gas & Electric Models
Some light-duty pressure washers run off your home’s electricity supply. These electric units are compact, quiet and easy to move around. More powerful, medium and heavy-duty models are powered by gasoline engines. Gas engine models are great if you’re working outside in places where an electric supply is hard to find or where stringing extension cords together would be dangerous or inconvenient.
Pressure jet washers are part garden hose and part air compressor. A typical pressure jet washer has either a gas-fueled engine or electrical powered motor that powers a water pump. The pump accelerates the water, supplied from a garden hose, to produce high pressure. The washer is hooked to a high pressure-rated hose. At the end of the hose is a water gun that looks similar to the pressure guns used at car washes. When the trigger is pulled, the water mixes with the air and comes out of the nozzle.
Before you begin power jet washing
Always begin by giving your decking or block paving a good sweep with a stiff broom to remove any debris such as stones, old cement and general loose dirt. This stops the debris becoming a projectile when hit by the jet of water and also stops it having an abrasive effect on your paving blocks.
How to clean Decking/block paving YOURSELF with a power jet washer
- First apply the relevant cleaner if needed
- Always start in a corner above the run off area of the dirty water so that you don’t have dirty water running on to your cleaned area of paving/decking
- Try to power jet wash the driveway or patio away from and not towards buildings, cars or anybodies property
- Work your way across the decking/paving trying to avoid splashing any doors and windows with dirt. If you do get them dirty make sure you rinse them over as you clean
- Work in gentle sweeps across the decking/paving. Pay attention as you go that each area of decking/paving is cleaned evenly. You don’t want to be left with ‘tiger stripes’
- If you’re decking/paving was very dirty you will have a lot of dirt that needs to be cleaned up afterwards. Often you can rinse the dirt into a drain or grassed or soiled area. But remember that if you are pressure jet washing your decking/paving towards a public highway, you will need to make sure the pavement and road are also washed or swept afterwards to remove the dirt if that’s where your dirt ended up.
You’re done! However, its sounds easier than it actually is and many people give up or hurt themselves, by not using the power jet wisely, so be very careful.
