Learning how to use a pressure washer means understanding how the machine actually works. It really doesn't matter what type of pressure washer you use, because there are in fact, just four basic elements involved in the process. These four elements are:

  • Pressure
  • Rate of water flow
  • Cleaning solution used
  • Heat

Without these combined elements, the characteristics of the cleaning process is altered. One very good example of this being if you use cold water instead of hot. You will have to compensate for the difference and this basically means, you would have to add more cleaning solution as well as a higher pressure to achieve the same results that you would if you used hot water. Understanding all this is part of how to use a pressure washer.

Understanding the Importance of Heat When Pressure Washing

The one thing you have to bear in mind is that heat will help detergents clean off dirt a lot faster and a lot more effectively as the temperature gets higher. If you are using your pressure washer to clean off any oil or grease on a concrete surface, this is especially true.

Learning How to Use All Four Elements Effectively

If you want to use less detergent in your pressure washer, you would have to compensate for this by increasing the pressure and the water temperature as well as the volume of water that passes through the machine, in order for the cleaning job to be done effectively.

Be Careful Powerful Streams of Water Can Cause Damage Too

Although pressure washing anything that needs to be cleaned is a very quick and easy way of doing it, you have to remember that powerful streams of hot water can also cause a lot of damage. This is why it is so important to learn how to use a pressure washer. Always read the manufacturers' guidelines before you start.

Make Sure The Items You Pressure Wash Will Take the Force

You have to make sure anything you power wash, will withstand the pressure. You need to check whether or not there are any delicate items and this includes windows that might break if you pressure wash them.

Make Sure You Use the Right Nozzle

You will need to fit the right sort of nozzle to your pressure washer for the task that needs to be done. Nozzles dictate what the water pressure will be, the smaller the nozzle the more power and therefore pressure.

Do You Want to Use Chemicals?

The majority of pressure washers let you add detergents as well as degreasers, and these certainly do make the tasks easier. You need to see what the manufacturers recommend in the machine before choosing which to use.

Wear Protective Eye Wear & Gloves

You should always wear protective gear when you use a pressure washer and this includes ear plugs or even protective headphones.

Check All Connections On the Machine

Always check that all the connections on your pressure washer are nice and tight. Anything loose, and especially a nozzle coming off, can really cause a lot of damage when you turn the power on.

Always Spray a Test Area First

Before you attack the item you want to pressure wash, always do a test first to check the pressure. You do this by spraying away from the object and then very slowly bringing the wand over the object, and make sure you do this at least 3 feet away. If the object is still not clean, move a little closer.

Slow, Methodical Passes Are Best

If you work methodically, with slow passes over the item you are cleaning, the results will be a lot better. It is not hard to learn how to use a pressure washer, it is basically just common sense, but you have to use these machines with care and always read the manufacturers manual first.
