When people decide to purchase a pressure washer, they often intend to clean a broad, flat surface, such as a driveway or deck.
But, using a high-pressure washer can clean a variety of things that you may not know about.
Let’s take a look at five of the most useful!
1. Old Paint
As previously mentioned, pressure washer users often intend to rid surfaces of dirt and grime.
However, you can also use a pressure washer to remove old paint as opposed to scraping it off manually.
Old boat paint, house paint, and even old car paint are no match for the force of the water, and it will easily strip it away from these surfaces so that you can apply a new coat.
2. Scattered Leaves
Autumn and winter are two of the most beautiful seasons of the year. But, nobody likes to spend an afternoon raking fallen leaves out of their front yard.
Luckily, there’s an easier solution. Pressure washing the clusters of leaves in your yard will easily blow them away off of your property, allowing you to save yourself plenty of time (and lower back pain).
Just be careful not to send all of your leaves into your neighbor’s grass!
If you’re a cooking enthusiast who’s lucky enough to own a grill, you probably hate cleanup as much as you love throwing some chicken and beef on to cook for dinner.
Cleaning your grill is extremely important, however, because they’re far dirtier than you think.
Rather than scrubbing away with soap in order to get all the grime off your grill’s interior, a pressure washer can get the job done in as little as ten minutes.
But, be sure to remove any propane or electrical connections before doing so in order to ensure the safety of yourself and those around you.
Like raking leaves, cleaning the gutters is one of those yard work chores that’s unpleasant no matter how you tackle it.
Well, at least if you do it by hand while standing on a ladder.
An alternative method is to stand on your roof, armed with a high-pressure washer. This will allow you to quickly clean your gutter in seconds. The only other thing you’ll have to worry about is removing the gutter’s contents from your yard after you flush it out.
5. Lawn Mowers
One of the most common reasons for lawn mowers to malfunction is getting grass, roots, and other foliage caught in the blades, preventing them from spinning correctly.
A pressure washer is able to remove any sort of obstruction that’s preventing the blades from doing their job. In most cases, you won’t have to take anything apart, either.
