Best Ways to Use a Pressure Washer Surface Cleaner

Do you have a dirty surface that needs cleaning? A pressure washer can help. 

There are many kinds of surfaces and they sometimes need different tools to clean them properly. For instance, if you have a deck or patio that is made out of wood, then the best tool for this would be a broom or brush attachment. If your surface is concrete or asphalt, then it’s best to use an extension pole with either a nozzle or scrubbing head on it.

There are some surfaces which require more than just water running over them in order to get the dirt off – these include brick pavers and concrete patios. These materials will not only stain easily but also attract residue from other substances such as oil stains from your car or grease from barbeque grills. For these surfaces, a surface cleaner is the only way to use a pressure washer effectively.

Because of this, we suggest that you know how and when to use a pressure washer surface cleaner so you can get the best results possible. 

First, consider your surroundings: What kind of environment do you live in? If it’s a particularly dry environment, then your surfaces will be more likely to crack and peel. In areas where humidity is high, the dirt may be harder to remove but it can often times make these surfaces easier to clean.

Using this knowledge of regions, consider your surface: Is it flat or does it have many different angles and corners? The latter will be easier to clean with a surface cleaner as you can get into all of those grooves. However, this is only necessary if the dirt has already stained your surface; it will be much more difficult to remove dried-on residue from complex surfaces like these.

On the other hand, if you own a vehicle with a large flat surface then it will be easier to use this cleaner attachment.

When considering surfaces, think about how much dirt is on the surface you are cleaning. If there is relatively no dirt or oil on your surface, then using a pressure washer nozzle should work fine. However, if the dirt has already stained your surface and dried into it, then a surface cleaner will help you remove this residue.
