Pressure cleaners can be used for a variety of tasks around your home. Below are some of the most common ways a pressure cleaner can be used to clean your home.  

Cleaning Driveways and Walkways 

Pressure cleaners are perfect for cleaning driveways. All you need to do is to attach the appropriate nozzle to your pressure washer, adjust the settings for the surface you're cleaning, and then start spraying. For best results, use an environmentally-friendly soap or detergent designed specifically for pressure washers. Your driveway or walkway will look like new in no time.

Removing Graffiti

Graffiti is one of those things that seems like it will never go away once it appears on a wall or sign. But if you have access to a high-powered pressure cleaner, you can easily remove graffiti without damaging the surface underneath it. This is why many cities now rely on professional power-washing companies to keep their streets clean and graffiti-free.

Cleaning Decks

Decks take quite a beating over time due to weather exposure. To bring back its original beauty, all you need is some hot water and mild detergent applied at just the right angle and speed — something that can be easily done with a pressure cleaner set at an appropriate PSI level. Be sure to wear protective gear such as goggles or face masks when using your pressure cleaner — you don't want hot, high-pressure water hitting your face.

Cleaning Outdoor Furniture and Fixtures  

Pressure cleaners can be used on almost any outdoor fixture or furniture item from patio sets to garden benches to quickly remove dirt and grime without having to scrub them down by hand. As always, make sure you select the proper nozzle attachment and adjust your settings appropriately before getting started. Otherwise, you risk damaging whatever object you're trying to clean. If you are unsure, you should consult the owner's manual or a cleaning service contractor.


No matter what kind of outdoor cleaning job needs doing, chances are good that your trusty pressure cleaner will come in handy. With just a few simple steps and some basic know-how about how these machines work best, you can easily take care of everything from dirty decking to removing graffiti. So don't hesitate — get out there today and start making good use of your trusty power washer. If you would like further assistance, contact a cleaning service today.
