Pressure washing decks can be a dirty process, so it is important to wear protective gloves and clothing that will not be ruined by pressure washing detergent. Water alone isn’t going to cut it for pressure washing a deck- pressure will push dirt around and create more of an issue rather than less. Soap will help break down the oils in the wood which can make cleaning easier.
When pressure washing, always use hot water so that detergent is more effective at breaking down oils on your deck surface. Using detergents is an effective way to clean your deck, but pressure washing alone isn’t going to do the trick.
The best way to pressure wash a deck is by combining pressure with detergent and hot water for an effective cleaning process.
It’s important that you don’t just power-wash over grime on a surface without scrubbing it away first. This will make dirt more slippery which increases the risk of slipping and falling off of them while carrying out this process which could result in serious injury.
If you want to protect your hands from being burned or hurt as well as keep yourself safe from slips and falls, invest in rubber gloves before beginning any pressure washing project! Always use goggles too if there are chemicals near the project area because some can burn your eyes.
If pressure washing decking, it’s a good idea to wear clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty because the pressure washer can splash up water and chemicals onto your clothing which may make them virtually unwearable afterward.
It is also important for safety reasons to be sure not to pressure wash at night or in poor weather conditions like high winds or heavy rain as this could cause serious injuries from dangerous shards of glass created by broken windows blown off their hinges due to strong gusts of wind, etc.
