Property Surfaces Safe to Power Wash

For Professional Power Washing, Contact Apex Mobile Pressure Washing

Our topic this month focuses on property surfaces safe to power wash. Our December blog explained that power washing equipment uses hot water and operates between 2,000 to 2,800 PSI. (PSI is short for pounds per square inch.) Because of this high pressure, you shouldn’t have every surface or object power washed. At Apex Mobile Pressure Washing, we’re experts at power washing various surfaces, including:


  • Aluminum Siding
  • Concrete Driveways
  • Vinyl Decks
  • Plastic Fences




Power Wash Aluminum Siding and Concrete Driveways for a Thorough Clean

Concrete driveways and aluminum siding both withstand the force from power washing, resulting in a thorough cleaning. If your concrete driveway has grease stains, professionals like us will likely use a smaller nozzle for spot-cleaning. For aluminum siding with excessive mildew or mold, we’ll coat the surface in suds, then power wash at a lower pressure. Sometimes, power washing is harsh for aluminum siding and concrete driveways, though. If your concrete driveway or aluminum siding isn’t in pristine condition, you might need to consider soft washing.



It’s Safe to Power Wash Vinyl Decks and Plastic Fences, Too

True, we encouraged soft washing for vinyl siding and stucco fixtures (which have plastic components) in our December blog. However, it’s safe to power wash vinyl decks and plastic fences. Power washing easily removes debris and dirt from plastic fences and vinyl decks, but it doesn’t remove embedded stains. Just as it is for aluminum siding and concrete driveways, you shouldn’t power wash vinyl decks or plastic fences that aren’t in pristine condition. The pressure could further damage their surfaces.



Some Surfaces and Objects Aren’t Safe to Power Wash, Such As:


  • Wood Siding
  • Electrical Panels and Meters
  • Air Conditioners
  • Anything with Lead Paint
  • Damaged Brick
  • Living Things (pets, plants, etc.)
