Using Too Much Pressure

Using too much pressure is one of the most common pressure washing mistakes that homeowners make. While it might seem like more pressure is better, it can actually cause significant damage to your property. Using too much pressure can strip paint off your property, damage siding and stucco, and even cause injuries to people or pets who are nearby.

To avoid using too much pressure, it's essential to use the right equipment and techniques for the job. Blue Wave Pressure Washing and Soft Wash uses professional-grade equipment and knows precisely how much pressure to use on different surfaces. Our team also knows how to adjust the pressure based on the surface being cleaned, ensuring that your property remains undamaged. For example, for roof cleaning, we utilize soft washing.

Not Using the Right Detergent

Another common pressure washing mistake is not using the right detergent. Detergents help break down dirt and grime on your property, making it easier to remove with the pressure washer. However, using the wrong detergent can also cause damage to your property.

Some detergents can strip paint or cause discoloration on certain surfaces. It's essential to use the right detergent for the job to avoid any damage to your property. At Blue Wave Pressure Washing and Soft Wash, we use only high-quality, eco-friendly detergents that are safe for your property's surfaces and will not cause any damage.

Not Protecting Surrounding Landscaping

Pressure washing can create a lot of runoff water, which can be harmful to your property's landscaping. If you're not careful, the runoff water can wash away soil and plants, causing significant damage to your landscaping.

To avoid this mistake, it's essential to take precautions before pressure washing. For example, you can cover plants and flowers with plastic sheeting or move them out of the way before pressure washing. At Blue Wave Pressure Washing and Soft Wash, our team takes great care to protect your landscaping before pressure washing, ensuring that your property's exterior surfaces are cleaned without causing any damage to your landscaping.

Not Wearing Protective Gear

Pressure washing can be dangerous if not done correctly. The high-pressure water can cause injuries to people and pets who are nearby. It's essential to wear protective gear, such as goggles, gloves, and boots, to avoid any injuries.

At Blue Wave Pressure Washing and Soft Wash, our team always wears protective gear when pressure washing your property. We also take great care to ensure that no one is nearby when pressure washing to avoid any injuries.
