4 Things You Shouldn’t Power Wash

Warning: Don't Power Wash These Things

Many homeowners turn to power washing to keep their homes clean and tidy. It’s a great way to eliminate dirt, grime, and other debris without scrubbing. However, some things should never be power washed because they can cause damage or even bodily harm. Don’t power wash these things if you want to keep yourself, your family, and your home safe.

Warning: Don’t Power Wash These Things

  • Anything Near Electrical Wiring & Outlets: Electrical wiring is one of the most dangerous things you don’t want to power wash. If the water gets into any exposed wiring or outlets, it could cause a short circuit or an electrical fire. It’s important to shut off all electricity before power washing any part of your home. This includes disconnecting any appliances near the area you plan on power washing and unplugging any outdoor lights or decorations that could be connected to an outlet inside your home.
  • Wooden Siding and Decks: While power washing wooden areas can help remove mold and mildew build-up, if done too aggressively, it can cause splintering and damage to the wood fibers in the siding or deck boards.
  • Glass Surfaces: High pressure on glass surfaces can cause chipping, scratching, and cracking in glass windows and doors. Be mindful of these areas so you don’t accidentally create a dangerous environment in and out of your home.
  • Roofs: If a severe rain or hail storm can cause damage to your roof, it’s no wonder a pressure washer can, too. The water pressure can strip away the granules that protect your roof, leading to leaks. Plus, it’s dangerous to use a power washer in high places because the powerful recoil can throw you off balance.
