What can pressure washers be used for?

The Different Pressure Washer Applications

Having a nice big backyard is great. You can wash or work on your car any time you choose, fire up the barbeque and gather some friends to have a good time. You can improve it by building a deck, a gazebo, you name it. The only downside is cleaning up after those activities, it takes a long time and some of those stains are just too tough to remove, no matter how hard your scrub and how much detergent you use. That’s why you should seriously consider buying a pressure washer.

It will not only provide you with enough power to get rid of all those stubborn stains, but it will do that job in only a fraction of the time it would take you to do it manually. Pressure washer applications are so numerous it would probably require a small book just to write them all down. Let’s go through some of them.

Pressure Washing Your Grill

I love to use my grill, but I despise cleaning it afterwards just as much. Getting rid of all that grease and fat that is burned deep into the metal is an absolute nightmare. Once I bought a pressure washer, all of that changed. Cleaning my grill has never been easier. However, there are some things you need to do first before blasting it with a water jet from a pressure washer. Depending on the type of grill you have, disconnect it from either electricity, propane tank, or a natural gas line.

Start with a 45-degree nozzle tip to get rid of any loose grease, grime and fat. I also recommend that you use a strong degreaser. Let the degreaser do its thing for about five minutes, before blasting the grill with a 15-degree spray tip to remove the most difficult stains. Once you have gotten rid of all that grime, rinse down the grill using a 45-degree nozzle tip.

 

Pressure Washing Your Car

I’ve already written a separate article on how you should wash your car using a pressure washer, so I’ll just do a quick rundown here.

When washing your car with a pressure washer, make sure to wash it down with water only first, so that you get rid of loose dirt, salt, or mud. After that you can apply detergent either manually, or using the soap tip. After that, use a low-pressure tip to wash down the detergent. Also, always remember to wash the underside of your car, too.

 

Pressure Washing Wooden Surfaces

You can also use a pressure washer to wash wooden surfaces, such as decks, house siding, gazebos, stairs, wooden fences, and even wooden outdoor furniture. Just keep in mind to use low-pressure nozzle tips, because a high-pressure water jet is powerful enough to strip finish from wood. Also, water particles can embed themselves deep inside the wood, causing it to bend and rot. This is also the reason why you should never use a high-pressure jet in combination with detergent when washing wooden surfaces.

 

Pressure Washing Metal

You can take full advantage of your pressure washer when washing metallic surfaces. I’ve already mentioned using a pressure washer to clean your grill, but you can also use it to clean metal fencing, gutters, drains, alloy wheels, metal roofs… Well, pretty much anything metallic, using a high-pressure nozzle tip. Just remember not to get too close to the surface, as the water jet can scratch it.

 

Pressure Washing Concrete and Brick

Your garage floor, brick walkways and concrete driveways are usually the most difficult to clean. Getting those oil and grease stains out of these surfaces using a high-pressure nozzle, with the help of a detergent, is now finally possible. I always get annoyed when I spot weed growing between bricks in my yards. Needless, weeds are no match for my pressure washer.
