When determining whether to do power or pressure washing, understand they are two very different practices.
If you do the wrong one, you could end up damaging your siding, deck, patio or driveway.
Here are a couple differences:
- Temperature: Power washing is hot water, which allows it to get rid of stains and particularly difficult items like dirt, grime, mold, fungus and so on.
- Force of the water: Pressure washing uses the high velocity to get off dirt, dust and other items from houses, siding, decks, patio and driveways. It is especially common for masonry, because concrete, cinder block and brick tends to build up dust, dirt and grime and will need regular cleaning every year.
