Risks of power washing your home
Deciding to power wash your home comes with some risks that deserve consideration. Firstly, pressure set too high can cause water to get into your walls. Homes are built to withstand regular rain, but power washing is a much more intense amount of pressurized water. Second, if the water pressure is even higher, it can damage the home. From chipping or breaking siding to wearing away brick mortar, you must spray with care.
