Pressure washers – where do we begin? These mighty outdoor power tools sure know how to pack a punch. Power washers are well-known for their ability to clean cars, siding, and driveways, but they can do so much more.

We outline our top 3 ways you can use your pressure washer to kick backyard spring cleaning into gear. Read on!

Clean Off Your Patio Furniture

We’ve all been there – that moment when the only seat available is a dirty one. Don’t let that panic-stricken moment overcome your guests when you invite them over for the first springtime barbecue of the year. Instead of bringing out the old sponge and soap-filled bucket, clean up your patio set the quick and easy way: with a power washer. Power washers are great for cleaning metal, wood, and resin furniture. The results will leave you pleased – and they’ll leave your guests with a clean spot to sit.

Wash Your Grill

Unless you were bold enough to brave the cool winter temps, chances are your grill has been sitting untouched in the outdoors since last fall. Though you might have covered it, it can undoubtedly still use a washdown. Pressure washers are the secret weapon when it comes to cleaning the inside and outside of your grill or smoker. Make you grill shine like new for the first meal of the season.

Shape Up Your Deck

Your wooden deck is due for some TLC after a season full of cool weather. Covered with a mixture of the dirt and grime from last year’s sunny days and whatever the cool months carried in. Power washing your deck will make it look as good as new. If you use enough water pressure, you can even prep it to be re-stained.

Remember, pressure washers are very powerful tools. While they do a lot of good, they hold the power to do some damage. No matter the project you’re tackling, make sure you’re using the right amount of water pressure. You want your water stream to be strong enough to get the job done, but not too strong that it’ll do harm. Test out a few different pressures before committing to one that’ll get the job done.
