Using the Correct Chemicals

Before using any chemical solution your going to need to make sure that it is approved for that specific pressure washer. All of the washers that we use come with the detergent injector, which allows for uninterrupted flow of the chemical solution into the water stream. If you do choose to use an unapproved detergent, be aware that they are probably not environmentally friendly and they may cause damage to your pressure components. Here is a list of the best pressure washer detergents.

Using the Correct Power/ Pressure

Before starting any cleaning with your washer, you will need to test the amount of pressure its producing. The best way to do this is to start by spraying a few metres away from any object. Slowly bring your wand to 1-2 metres distance from the surface you want to clean. Next what you want to do is move your wand forth and back a couple of times and then check if the surface is clean. If additional cleaning is required, move your wand closer. Don’t go too close to the object your cleaning, otherwise you could damage it, remember pressure washers are not toys.

Pausing Before Rinsing

Before you go ahead and spray the cleaning solution away make sure you have to given it enough time for it to do its job. Professionals recommend that you should allow at least 5 to 10 minutes for the detergent to start dissolving the dirt. Once the surface is ready to be rinsed, start at the top and work your way down to the bottom until the whole area is detergent free.
