There are so many advantages that come along with pressure washing your driveway. It will make your driveway look like new again by removing dirt, grime, mildew, and other debris. It will also extend the lifespan of your concrete by preventing contaminants from working their way down into it. It will even improve the curb appeal of your home, and if you’re interested in selling it, it could make it more valuable with very little investment on your part.
But before you start pressure washing your driveway, there are a few tips you should keep in mind. Take a look at them below.
Soak your driveway with a detergent before getting started.
There are some people who will attempt to pressure wash their driveway without using a detergent. While it’s possible to do this, you will have to spend more time washing your driveway when you opt against utilizing detergent. Detergents, like the ones produced by Hotsy, are designed to break up grit and grime on a driveway so that it’s significantly easier to wash away.
Use a surface cleaner attachment.
When pressure washing a driveway, you can use one of your nozzle attachments to do it. But you run the risk of damaging concrete if you use a nozzle. Instead, invest in a surface cleaner attachment that will cover a larger portion of your driveway when you’re cleaning and do it without causing any damage.
Keep safety in mind at all times.
Any time you use a pressure washer to clean something, you should keep safety in mind. It’s a good idea to wear safety goggles just in case something shoots up towards your face as you clean. It’s also a good idea to move slowly as you clean your driveway and avoid backing up into the street. This should really go without saying, but you should also steer clean of accidentally aiming your pressure washer at other people or animals. It could cause serious injuries.
