Everything You Need to Know About Pressure Washers

Pressure washers are very common tools that can clean buildup and growth that cause stains and decay. Pressure washer power is determined by PSI and water flow aka GPM. PSI is pounds per square inch pressure and GPM is gallons per minute. The higher the GPM, the faster the cleaning. There are electric and gas pressure washers. An electric washer is quieter whereas a gas pressure washer is much more powerful. You also have a variety of nozzles to choose from, so pick the one that best fits your needs.

Key Takeaways:

  • There are two types of pressure washers, electric and gas. Electric washers are quieter whereas gas washers are stronger and used for deeper cleaning.
  • You need to choose the correct nozzle when spraying because if not you could damage your concrete and break window seals or damage decks.
  • Before picking a pressure washer, make sure you find one with a safer choice label to prevent harm to your landscapes and equipment via toxic chemicals.

“Choosing the correct PSI is crucial in pressure washing, as the higher the PSI, the more force the water will have on the surface you’re cleaning.”

How to Remove Wallpaper Using Solvents or Steam | HGTV

It can be difficult to remove wall paper but it doesn’t have to be, you can get it done with a few tools as long as you remember safety and follow directions. Some wallpapers can be pulled away just from pulling on them but that’s not always the case, sometimes steam is necessary to break the adhesive bond it has to your wall. If you start at a seam or corner and start to pull and there is no tearing or damage to the wall underneath, you may not need steam to remove it.

Key Takeaways:

  • In order to remove wallpaper, you will need solvent, sheeting, TSP, a spackling compound, sandpaper, a perforating tool, scraping tools, a steamer and rubber gloves.
  • Before you remove the wall paper you’ll need to prepare the room. Remove all of the electrical plates, telephone jacks and any wall obstructions. Tape over outlets and switches for extra protection.
  • After you remove the wallpaper, the best way to clean a wall is to mix hot water with a small amount of TSP and dip a sponge in it and wipe it down.

“Some wallpapers, particularly the foil and water-resistant types, are strong and made with glues that easily release when they are pulled away from the wall.”
