Keep reading to uncover three fast facts about pressure washers that could be surprising.

  1. Pressure Washing Can Be a Solution for Allergies
  2. When you think of wellness options and ways to fight allergies, finding a pressure washer dealer is not likely the first idea that comes to mind. However, using a pressure washer regularly can actually help prevent and fight allergies along with other illnesses. Consider that, throughout the world, mold and pollen are two of the most common allergens. Siding, roofs, and other parts of the home often catch pollen. If you can wash your home on a regular basis, you can get rid of these allergens that would otherwise make it into your home.

    Mold and mildew are other common allergens that can cause serious reactions. The best way to handle these potentially life-threatening substances is to clean the surfaces and then disinfect. A pressure washer is an integral part of this process.

  3. A Pressure Washer Helps You Say Goodbye to Algae, Lichens, and Other Irritants
  4. Since most people don’t spend much time walking around on their roof, they have no idea that algae, moss, lichens, and other irritants love to live there. These may seem out of mind, but if you do not get rid of them, they could damage the shingles on your roof. These organisms actually use your shingles as a source of food – and once they start it is very difficult to make them stop.

    That is where a pressure washer comes in. All it takes is a soft pressure set with the right chemical and they will be killed and gone. You can also treat your roof and other areas with chemicals that can prevent these allergens from re-growing. Once again, the best way to do this is with a pressure washer.

  5. Pressure Washers Can Keep You and Everyone Else at Your Home Safer
  6. While the main reason people choose pressure washers is that they want to clean their home, concrete, or another area, there is a great side effect: Cleaning your concrete and wood can reduce the risk of falling. You can clean off your patio, deck, sidewalk, and around pools – all areas that can be slippery when wet. This is especially helpful for extra-slippery surfaces like those with algae or mold. You no longer have to walk on the surface to clean int.
