Hey there, self-employed enthusiasts! Justin here from Forever Self-Employed, and I've got some game-changing tips for you today. In this video, we'll be diving into the art of pressure washing driveways and how you can do it faster and more efficiently. Stick around until the end for a bonus tip that could revolutionize your approach. Let's jump right in!
Blow Off First: Clear the Debris Before diving into the nitty-gritty of driveway cleaning, always start by blowing off the surface. This might seem like a no-brainer, but it's a crucial step, especially if you're dealing with a heavily wooded or debris-laden area. Alex, my buddy from South Carolina, learned this the hard way when a pine cone caused a hiccup. Keep a portable blower handy, clear the surface first, and watch your cleaning process speed up significantly.
Use Chemicals for Quick ResultsChemicals might not be everyone's cup of tea, but when it comes to pressure washing driveways faster, they can be a game-changer. Pre-treat the surface with chemicals to kickstart the elimination of organic growth in the concrete. Post-treating helps mitigate any lines and ensures a thorough cleanup. Though it adds a bit to the cost, the time saved and the efficiency gained make it well worth the investment.
Extra Man for Hose Management: Divide and Conquer While profitability-wise it might not always make sense to have an extra person on the truck, having a partner can significantly speed up your workflow. An extra set of hands for hose management and surface blowing means less fatigue and more efficiency. If you're working solo, consider the trade-off between profitability and speed, but having a helper can be a game-changer.
Bonus Tip: Upgrade Your Pressure Washer If you want to turbocharge your driveway cleaning, consider upgrading your pressure washer system. Higher gallons per minute (GPM) means more water flow, and that translates to faster results. Additionally, a higher GPM allows you to use a bigger surface cleaner, covering more ground in less time. Remember the rule of thumb: aim for four inches on your surface cleaner for every one gallon per minute. Upgrading might seem like an investment, but the time saved will pay off in the long run.
