Power washing (known as pressure washing) is defined as using a machine and water to spray surfaces with high pressured liquid and sometimes chemicals to clean areas. This is an imperative first step when preparing to paint or stain any part of a home.
If a proper cleaning is not completed prior to painting, the new paint won’t stick to the surface and the new paint usually will peel off in big chunks and/or small flakes.
Power washing is cleaning and it prepares surfaces for painting by removing dirt, mould, mildew, cobwebs(spiderweb), pollutants, pollen and dust.
Power washing also removes most chalking that may have taken place. Chalking is the naturally occurring breakdown of the paints skin surface from sunlight ultraviolet rays.
Using a pressure washing machine will ensure the perfect preparation for exterior painting projects. The right amount of pressure will clean any surface, including wood, without causing damage. Also, using the proper nozzle will keep the appropriate angle and fan trajectory of water for each different surface. Experienced painting and power washing contractors will be able to prevent wand marks (or etching of the surface), which can be caused by too much pressure applied at the wrong angle.
