The Right Way of Pressure Washing Siding
Pressure washing siding is a great way to clean the exterior of your home, but it’s important to do it the right way. There are a few key things to remember-like using the right nozzle and keeping the water pressure low-to make sure you don’t damage your siding or yourself in the process! Here’s a step-by-step guide to pressure washing your home’s siding:
- Choose the right nozzle: A fan nozzle is the best choice for pressure washing siding, as it will evenly distribute the water pressure and prevent damage to the siding.
- Keep the water pressure low: It’s tempting to crank up the pressure to get rid of tough dirt and grime, but this can damage your siding. Use a low setting instead and hold the nozzle about two feet from the surface of the siding.
- Start at the top and work your way down: This will prevent streaks from forming on your siding.
- Rinse thoroughly: Be sure to rinse off all the soap or cleaners you used before you start pressure washing. Otherwise, you could end up with streaks or spots on your siding.
- Let the siding dry completely: This is important to prevent any water damage.
Following these simple tips will help ensure that your pressure washing project goes smoothly and that your siding is left looking clean and new!
