Pressure washers or high-pressure washers make it much easier for us to clean different types of surfaces on a daily basis, by using them we save large amounts of water and time as well as effort. 

Here are some of the steps to follow to make sure we get the most out of these tools.

The first thing to take into account is security,  therefore here are some precautionary measures that we recommend:

The water jet must not be pointed / directed at people, animals or electrical installations.  

We should not expose under any circumstances any part of our body to the jet of water under pressure, since they can easily generate cuts  

Use basic safety equipment (Safety glasses, gloves and safety boots)    

Clear the area  to be cleaned of any object, to prevent them from being shot with the force of the water jet.

Try to maintain a safe distance of about 2 meters from the surface that is being cleaned and people or animals must keep at least 15 meters away from the work area.   

Never work on the machine if the cables are damaged or cut. 

Do not spray flammable liquids as this could cause an explosion.   

Do not use contaminated water  or those containing chemicals, this could shorten the life of the machine.  

The range of surfaces that we can clean with pressure washers is quite wide, we must bear in mind that there are special surfaces in which we have to use special accessories such as brushes or specific detergents in order to achieve a correct cleaning.
