Understanding The Hazards Of DIY Pressure Washing

Diy pressure washing hazards

It's completely understandable why a Williamsport homeowner wants to treat pressure washing like a Saturday afternoon DIY project. It's admirable when property owners want to invest their own time and sweat equity into upkeep and improvements.

It's no wonder that consumers assume power washing is the perfect do-it-yourself project to tackle. Hardware stores and home improvement retailers are banking on the fact that most people think they can buy or rent pressure washing equipment and do their own exterior surface cleaning. While it's technically possible, we'd like the opportunity to state our case against it.

Mayhem, Mishaps & Power Washing Blunders

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission statistics, in 2014 alone, 6,057 people ended up in the ER with pressure washing-related injuries. Is it worth the risk to DIY your own power washing when you could leave it to trained, experienced, and insured pros? Especially when there are safer do-it-yourself projects to try, such as landscaping or painting a bedroom. Some of the top reasons to avoid doing your own exterior surface cleaning:

  • Bodily Harm - Any risk is too much risk when you could hire a professional for your pressure washing.
  • Property Damage - Inexperienced power washing machinery use means an elevated risk of damaging your home or surrounding properties.
  • Unsatisfactory Results - Let's be honest, you're not saving money if the outcome of your exterior cleaning work isn't great and you still have to hire a professional to finish the job.
  • Better Equipment - Industry experts have commercial-grade, state-of-the-art equipment, along with the training to use it.
  • Not That Much Cheaper - You won't end up saving enough money to make this particular DIY project worth the hassle.

Taking Care Of Your House Washing

The most common power washing job is house washing, and it's a significantly sized project. Even for a smaller home, using the pressure washer and getting the job done well without incidents isn't likely for beginners.
