Tips for power washing your deck

Published On: Nov 29 2012 02:14:44 PM EST

You may want to clean your deck before winter sets in. Using a power washer can help with this task.


To use your power washer, first make sure you are using a tip appropriate for the chore.


When you start the power washer you should make sure the safety latch is in place.


Once you are ready to start washing your deck you can release the safety latch and move the hose in a sweeping motion across the deck. Try to avoid keeping the washer in one place for too long or it could damage the surface.


You may need to pass over stained areas a few times. If the stains persist, you may need to use a stronger cleaning solution in your power washer.
