Wash the Fence and Be Amazed
I don’t know how many of you guys own a pressure washer or you might not even know what one is. It sounds just like that name implies. This handy little washer sprays out water at a high rate of speed. It’s much stronger than sticking the nozzle on the garden hose and spraying it.
Now I have never used one until recently and was surprised what this handy little tool could do. A friend of mine was building a deck for some people and asks for me to assist him. I did and was handing him tools and stuff like that as he was building the deck. Later on the homeowners ask us to pressure wash their fence and the house. Now they had a wooden fence that was about 6 feet high all the way around their property. You could see a lot of green mold and residue from the trees that made the fence look dark. When we started to pressure wash it, it was like brand new wood again. The difference it made in that fence was amazing and all from a little pressure washing.
Now we did the house also, but used bleach to help us there. They had your standard vinyl siding on their house and the pressure washer took away most of the dirt, but those green moldy stains didn’t come all the way off. We took a cup of bleach and would throw on all the hard spots and let the bleach sit for about 2 or 3 minutes then wash it off. It takes that stuff right off. Just don’t let the bleach sit too long or it can eat paint or fade the color noticeably on the house.
If you use a pressure washer on your house, fence, or even your car; be sure you keep it moving and practice with it in less seen places before you take off on places that are seen easily. That washer would tear the wood right off the fence if you left it there for any length of time or held it too closely. So be sure to practice a little bit with it before you take off on a house, car, fence, or anything else that you might want to pressure watch. If you let the kids use it, be sure to watch them closely. These pressure washers could easily take a eye out or something if not used properly. So please be careful with them and be sure to try it on your wooden fences!Click here for reuse options!
