Hello, my name is Steve Alce. I’m a professional painter and today I represent AllProWashing.com. Now we’re going to talk a little bit about pressure washing. And the reason we’re talking about pressure washing is, it’s crucial to pressure wash the exterior house before you do any painting. It’s not that you can’t paint without pressure washing, it’s just that the paint is not going to stick as well as it will adhere to a cleaner surface. Now with pressure washers, there is a couple kinds you can get. You can get the gas powered ones which are the best and the strongest, or you can get something like, I’m using today an electric pressure washer. On this job, it’s not really peeling bad. It doesn’t get a lot of sunlight, so it’s not too bad. If you got a lot of heavy shocking or a lot of peeling, then you want a really strong gas-powered pressure washer. But on something light like this, I just used my standard electric pressure washer. And this only is about twelve hundred psi. There’s not a lot to it. So it doesn’t have as much strength as a big one, but it’s not going to need as much because mostly we’re just going to get the dirt off and we’re going to take out these old cobwebs that are up in the eaves, that kind of thing. This is why today we’re going to go ahead and use this standard old electric pressure washer.

Now these are real easy to turn on. it’s just a button in the back. Push the button and you’re going to hear it we’re up. That means the pressure is good. Then you just kind of want to test it and pull the trigger. See that’s already sent to about 15 degrees. That’s going to be about what I normally work with, and that’s why it’s got that’s enough to clean the area and it still has pretty good pressure. This pressure washer is only about twelve hundred psi pounds per square inch now. We are hoping we’re not going to find any rough areas, that’s why we’re using electric because mostly we’re just washing. But if we found a rough area we want to go ahead and go to this tip turn it all the way to this to the left side and you’re going to get that eagle. That has the maximum pressure off of the pressure washer. Now dig out any area you have even if you got a stubborn cobweb that’s up in a corner.
But normally you’re going to keep that at about fifteen. Now that’s just a matter of turning the wand tip. You want to get the back side as well. Then you want to go ahead and get the reverse side too. You see this is a pretty good paint job. I’m gonna bring my face on down, work my way down the eaves. That way now once I’ve got to us a point that I like, I want to go ahead and get the rest of this section while I’m here instead of making a lot of moves. So I’m going to need to get a little higher to get these jalousies. So I kind of keep a ladder handy I’m going to pull that in now. Pull that into place and jump off a couple runs. Now once i’m up here i can shoot down on it that way to work like where you really. Now all that’s left is this bottom part on the wall will bring that on up and keep continuing on down. And this is how you pressure wash the exterior surface of a house to prepare it for painting.
