It is amazing that there are so many different types of work that window cleaners do. It also amazes me that there are so many different tools we use from day today. If you have stucco around your windows and you want to clean the stucco. A good tip is to use a pressure washer. A very good tool is a pressure washer extension pole. The pole can make you cleaning job very easy if you have hard to reach areas.For another example, a window cleaner might be cleaning windows and find that the stucco surface around the windows is also very dirty and needs cleaning.A good tip for the window cleaner is to use a pressure washer to clean the surface to bring back the stucco’s natural color. When using a pressure washer to clean stucco, you have to be very careful not to damage it.It could take hours, days or even years of experience to learn how to clean an area without damaging it. For example, if you have a 4000 PSI pressure washer and you get too close to stucco, it will remove or damage the stucco.Stucco can be repaired and painted again, but this is a time consuming project for a window cleaner and a window cleaning nightmare. So, cleaning stucco can be done with a pressure washer, but the window cleaner has to be very careful not to damage it, or it will cost him or her time and money.If the stucco has just surface dirt, it is usually easier to clean than stains like algae. Algae stains on stucco are very common. An area with algae must be tested first to see if it can be cleaned without damaging the surface. If you are using a powerful pressure washer, a different tip can be used to reduce the pressure for a lighter cleaning.Once the window cleaner has the experience with hard to clean areas, he or she can usually do a quick test and know if the area can be cleaned without painting. If the area is really stained where the stain has absorbed into the stucco, then this area would need to be cleaned and painted.
Many window cleaners find that in addition to cleaning windows, they are often asked to perform a variety of services. One of those services is pressure washing. I am amazed at all the little things I learn from day to day. It’s all the little experiences that help to teach you the tricks for working more efficiently and effectively. From working with a lot of different window cleaning and pressure washing tools, I learn many things.When I first started pressure washing, which is also known as power washing, I was not aware of what the different colors of the tips meant. A good tip is to learn how each color tip will work with your equipment. For example, there are white tips, red tips, green tips, and yellow. All of these tips are different sizes and they are numbered. The pressure and spray patterns vary. A white tip with 00 numbers on the end will have lower pressure than a white tip with the number 45 on it. By using the white tip with 00, you will reduce the pressure of your pressure washer.Like they say, bigger is not always better. For example, if you are using a 4000 PSI pressure washer and you are cleaning at a height of 40 feet with an extension pole, you will want to go with a small numbered tip to lower the pressure, so the pole will not get away from you. The white tip which has the smaller number, will help make the pole a lot easier to handle.Another good idea is if you are using a 4000 PSI pressure washer, to get the most pressure out of it, you can use a number 45 tip.Also, another good tool is the diesel hot water pressure unit. The difference between hot and cold pressure washing is like night and day. The cold water unit is more for cleaning surface dirt. The heat unit can take off gum, tar, oil and even paint.
