How to Pressure Wash A House Without Damaging It!


What's up, everyone? I'm Mike, and welcome back to All About Pressure Washing, YouTube's premier channel for all things pressure washing. Today, we're diving into the art of washing houses without risking any damage. Whether you're a seasoned pro or just starting out, this video is packed with tips and insights to help you clean any structure safely and efficiently.

So, you're here because you want to know the best way to clean a house, right? Well, let's get started.

First things first, forget the misconception that high pressure is the answer to everything. While pressure washers are handy tools, they're not always the best choice for house washing. Instead, we'll explore the use of pressure washers and soft wash systems, both of which can deliver fantastic results when used correctly.

But before we delve into the nitty-gritty, let me tell you about a game-changing resource: Softwash 101 class course. Developed by industry experts including Coty Yarborough, Aaron Parker, Justin Rogers, and yours truly, this comprehensive training covers everything from surface types and detergents to equipment and techniques. If you're serious about mastering residential cleaning, this course is a must-have.

Okay, back to business. When it comes to house washing, the key is using the right solutions. Sodium hypochlorite, a powerful detergent, is our weapon of choice for tackling mold and mildew. But remember, it's not your average store-bought mix. We're talking about a potent blend that gets the job done without causing harm to the house or surrounding vegetation.

Now, let's talk application. Whether you opt for a pressure washer with a chemical injector or a 12-volt soft wash system, the goal remains the same: efficient distribution of the cleaning solution. Remember, it's not about the pressure; it's about the application and the gallons per minute (GPM) of your washer.

Oh, and a word of advice: ditch the ladder whenever possible. With the right equipment, you can reach even the highest points of a house safely and effectively. Trust me; it's not worth the risk.

Now that you're set up and ready to go, it's time to start spraying. Begin at the bottom and work your way up, ensuring a uniform application of the cleaning solution. And remember, patience is key. Allow the solution to work its magic before proceeding to the rinsing stage.

Speaking of rinsing, this is where low pressure comes into play. The last thing you want is to inadvertently cause damage by blasting water where it shouldn't go. Take your time, rinse thoroughly, and double-check for any missed spots before calling it a day.

And there you have it—a crash course in house washing without causing any damage. But if you're hungry for more knowledge and want to take your skills to the next level, don't forget to check out the How to Wash course. With over 50 modules and rave reviews from satisfied customers, it's the ultimate resource for aspiring cleaning professionals.
