WHY OPT FOR HIGH-PRESSURE WALL WASHING?
High-pressure cleaning is a technique that involves applying high-pressure hot water to walls and facades using specially designed equipment. This method is considered aggressive on substrates, but is particularly effective for removing all types of stubborn dirt. High-pressure washing gets rid of grease stains, dust, paint residues and other dirt and grime on your wall. Generally speaking, it’s best to carry out a full high-pressure cleaning of the walls once a year. This will prevent excessive soiling, which could cause permanent damage to the paint or other materials on the facade. High-pressure washing is not recommended in winter. There’s a risk of thermal shock that could weaken the wall. It’s also essential to carry out a general check-up before embarking on the pressure-washing process. A facade in poor condition and deteriorated joints can lead to water infiltration as a result of high pressure.
HOW DOES HIGH-PRESSURE CLEANING WORK?
High-pressure washing is carried out step by step. First, inspect the condition of the wall and facade. In fact, a high-pressure jet of hot water can cause further wear and tear to a wall that’s already in poor condition. Next, you need to protect the areas around the wall, such as windows, doors and bay windows, which may not be able to withstand the excessive pressure of the jet against the wall. You should also consider covering the flower beds around the area to be cleaned, if necessary.
Only then does the cleaning team proceed to the complete washing of the wall. You need to set the machine to the right pressure for each material to optimize washing and avoid damaging the wall or facade. Cleaning should be carried out from top to bottom of the facade to avoid soiling previously cleaned surfaces.
WHAT TYPES OF MATERIALS CAN BE USED?
High-pressure cleaning can be applied to a wide range of facade and wall materials. It can be wood, stone, brick or concrete. It’s a safe operation as long as pressure and temperature are kept under control. In fact, there is a suitable pressure for every type of equipment. What’s more, it’s even possible to clean windows by adjusting the pressure to the authorized level. In any case, high-pressure washing is not recommended for old facades. Even if there’s no visible wear on the outside, the high-pressure jet applied to its surface can damage it, creating the risk of water infiltration later on. In this case, gentle low-pressure washing is recommended.
If your facade is showing signs of fragility in certain areas, it’s best to repair it before high-pressure washing. This will avoid increasing the extent of the damage and the cost of repairs.
