Avoiding the Dangers of DIY Pressure Washing

Diy pressure dangers

No one ever said that home maintenance was easy. There's a long list of things to take care of, and not all are appropriate for the DIY approach.

Unfortunately, because big-box home improvement retail chains sell and rent equipment for jobs like pressure washing, customers assume this is suitable do-it-yourself work. A job like painting a room in your house without any formal training might be alright.

At the very worst, if you mess up, it means you won't like the look. However, with a task like power washing, the work can be dangerous and the outcome disastrous.

So, before you waste your weekend off trying to tackle a more appropriate job for trained and experienced professionals, take a moment to learn why you should avoid the DIY method.

What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

If pressure washing is promoted as a suitable DIY job, why isn't it? What are some reasons you should leave exterior cleaning to the industry experts instead of cleaning your own home?

Above all else, the priority should be safety.

In the wrong hands, power washing can cause personal injury. The high-velocity water spray is a recipe for disaster in untrained hands; you can easily injure yourself or someone else.

Property damage is another concern. You may think you're ready to tackle a job like window cleaning until you attempt it.

Imagine trying to save money by doing your own house washing instead of hiring a professional, and then incurring the costs of a broken window or other property damage. It's not worth the risk to possibly save a few dollars.

The other great news is that if you leave the work to pros, you get to reclaim your weekend. That alone is worth the cost of hiring a professional.

However, not just any pro will do. Some power washing companies use the same cleaning method on all exterior surfaces.
