After the winter, there is a good chance that you have to clean your terrace. For example, there may be green deposits on your tiles and garden furniture. Remove green deposits and clean your terrace with a high-pressure cleaner. In this article I give you some tips for cleaning your terrace with the pressure washer.

1. Use a terrace cleaner

The biggest tip on the terrace cleaning with a high pressure cleaner is to do this with a terrace cleaner. You buy this terrace cleaner as an accessory with your high-pressure cleaner or it comes standard. This prevents splashing water (leaving you dry) and you clean the terrace without leaving streaks.

2. Start with a low pressure and build it up

A danger when cleaning a terrace with a high-pressure cleaner is that you spray away the top layer of the stones or the wood as it were. The result is that you increase the chance of a green attack. That is why it is always a good idea to start with low pressure and to increase it if necessary.

3. Work with safety accessories

Safety accessories

Pressure washers generally produce a lot of noise. Therefore, buy hearing protectors to protect your ears against the sound. Also other safety accessories such as gloves and safety goggles are not a luxury when you get started with your cleaning job.

4. Keep the water far away from electricity

Of course you keep the water away from electricity when you are at work. Be extra careful when using an extension cord. You work with a large amount of water that can flow to other parts of the terrace, so also to the location of the extension cord. This is very dangerous. Keep the water away from the electricity.

5. Empty your terrace
