Here are 10 easy-to-follow power washing tips that will help you get the job done quickly and easily.

  1. Start by cleaning any furniture and décor you have on the patio. Remove anything that can’t get wet, including plants and fabrics. You’ll also want to move any furniture and décor away from the area you’ll be washing. 
  2. Make sure your power washer is set to the right pressure. Different surfaces require different levels of pressure, so make sure you’re using the correct level for your patio. 
  3. Start at the farthest corner and work your way in towards the house, overlapping each pass slightly to avoid missing spots. 
  4. Be careful when washing around windows, doors and other openings. You don’t want to get water into the house, so take extra care when spraying near these areas. 
  5. Use a fan-shaped spray pattern for the best coverage and make sure to move the wand around to avoid any streaks. 
  6. Work in sections and use a back-and-forth motion when washing each section. Avoid just spraying in one spot for too long, as this can cause damage to the surface of the patio. 
  7. If you’re using a chemical cleaner, apply it before you start power washing and allow it enough time to work before you rinse it off with the power washer. It’s also important to follow the instructions on the product label.
  8. When rinsing off the patio, be sure to use a gentle stream of water so that you don’t damage any plants or delicate surfaces near your patio. Always keep the nozzle of the power washer pointed away from your house and other buildings. 
  9. Allow plenty of time for your patio to dry before putting any furniture or décor back in place. You may want to use a fan or dehumidifier to speed up the drying process. 
  10. Finally, you can apply a sealant to help protect your patio from future damage. This will give it an extra layer of protection against dirt and grime and help keep it looking its best for longer. 

Power washing is a great way to spruce up your outdoor space and make it look like new again! With these tips, you’ll be able to power wash your patio with ease, giving it the beautiful finish that you’re looking for. Good luck!
