Hi, my name is Steve White with MasterCraft painting and today we’re going to talk a little bit about pressure washing.
The first thing that we want to do in the preparation of painting your home’s exterior is thorough washing. This is going to remove all the dirt, spider webs and loose materials that will inhibit the adhesion of the material that we’re going to put on.
What we’ll use is 3000 PSI pressure washer, professional equipment. You can rent this and I do recommend them highly. It will make the job go a lot faster and a lot better. You can get the same results however, like I mentioned earlier with the garden hose and maybe a nylon brush on a pole. It’s just going to be a little bit more work and it’s going to take a little bit longer.
Important things to remember when using the pressure washer is that the water coming out at the end of that nozzle is coming out of there at 3000 PSI and it can cut your fingers. It can cut your toes so you want to make sure that you keep fingers and toes away from the end of the nozzle and also, some of the substrates that you’re going to be washing are critical, get close enough to remove the dirt but not so close as you’re going to destroy the substrate.
