Power Washing & Pressure Washing
There is one key element that differentiates a power washer from a pressure washer: a heating element. Both machines create a powerful stream of high-pressure water, but a power washer also heats up the water.
Don’t Always Go For Max Power Pressure Washing
- Start Low
- Move Up
- Avoid The Laser Nozzle Sprayer Option
Brighten Up Your Brick Pavers
To remove algae or mold, try vinegar. Spraying a mixture of vinegar and water into the affected area may be the solution.
A vinegar solution can kill off weeds. However, proceed carefully. This solution can be equally detrimental to your cultivated plants. Make sure that you use small amounts to prevent the solution from spilling over into your flower beds or natural grass lawn.
After applying the vinegar solution to the affected area, allow it to remain for a few minutes. This will improve your intended effect. A scrub brush, deck brush and elbow grease may be needed to clean up stubborn areas.
After using the brush and elbow grease, rinse the area with plenty of water.
To create a powerful mold-killing mixture, you can add one cup of bleach to a gallon of water.
You should exercise care and caution. Bleach can discolor your brick pavers and thus ruin your precious hardscape.
Bleach can have a such strong impact on your hardscape and lawn. You should test first in a small and inconspicuous area. Confirm that it won’t ruin the brick pavers.
After testing, spray the bleach solution carefully, again, a brush and elbow grease may be necessary. Remember to rinse the area with plenty of water.
