With many television shows and articles promoting DIY projects; you may be thinking of giving your next pressure washing job a try. While this can be a great idea if you know how to complete the job correctly, for many DIYers, “doing it yourself” can actually lead to many unexpected repair costs. If you are unfamiliar on how to complete the job safely, it is best to stick to a professional pressure washing Jacksonville FL company such as Aarron’s Pressure Washing, to make sure the job is completed to your satisfaction without the added expenses of fixing anything that is damaged. Here are some common DIY pressure washing mistakes to avoid when attempting to do the job yourself.
Too Much Pressure Applied
If you are not familiar with pressure washing, it is easy to have your project go haywire when too much pressure is applied. There’s an old saying that too much of a good thing is actually a bad thing. This statement is definitely true when it comes to pressure washing. Due to the power of the water being sprayed on your home, too much pressure could lead to imprints on your siding panels or whole chunks of wooden siding removed. It is important to make sure that the right distance between the nozzle and your siding is utilized with the correct pressure setting to avoid damages.
No Cleaning Solution is Used
When deciding to tackle a pressure washing project, it is important to make sure that you are utilizing a cleaning solution to remove grime on your siding. While water alone may be able to remove some of the materials that have built up on the exterior of your home or business; mold will not be destroyed by water alone. Using a cleaning solution can help you remove pesky mold in its tracks, saving you money that would require mold removal down the line.
Not using Safety Precautions
It may seem like common sense, but many DIYers make the mistake of not wearing protective equipment when attempting to complete their pressure washing project. Failing to wear gloves, eye goggles, long sleeve clothing, and boots could lead to costly medical expenses. Due to the power a pressure washer has, spraying at the wrong angle could not only slow down your project, but increase your safety risk completing the project. For that reason, protective equipment should be worn if attempting pressure washing.
Buying Cheap Equipment for the Job
In attempt to save money, many pressure washing DIYers will buy cheaper pressure washers from a home improvement store. Many of these tools are not commercial grade and will not clean tough buildup from your siding. In an attempt to continue the project, too much time spent on one area can lead to some major expenses if siding is damaged.
While this list is not exhaustive, it is best to hire a professional like Aarron’s Pressure Washing to make sure that these mistakes are avoided. Call us today at 904-386-4871 for all your pressure washing related needs!
