DIY Pressure Washing Mistakes

Brick Exterior Being Pressure Washed Marietta GA

When it comes to DIY pressure washing, it may seem pretty straightforward to the average Marietta, Georgia homeowner. However, there is more to pressure washing than meets the eye and the average Joe usually ends up making rookie mistakes that cost them more time and money to fix.

Common DIY Pressure Washing Mistakes

Here are some common mistakes homeowners make with DIY pressure washing:

Using Too Much Pressure – Too much water pressure can strip wood decking, or cause etching lines on your siding. In addition, using inconsistent pressure throughout your project will leave streaks that look unsightly in the end.

Improper Amount of Cleaning Solutions – Most homeowners will pressure wash with just water, which ends up making the task of cleaning your home less effective. Using water only can also spread mold spores around. Not knowing which chemicals to use, or the right chemical-to-water ratio will significantly reduce the effectiveness of your cleaning. In addition, without the proper cleaning solutions, you’ll need to apply more pressure to get an area clean, meaning you risk damage to your home.

Cleaning Out of Order – Cleaning out of order will cause you to have to reclean certain areas of your home because they end up collecting dirt and grimy residue. In the end, you will have spent more time pressure washing your home than what was necessary.

The pressure washing technicians and office staff are fantastic. You can’t beat their prices and the quality was high. I recommend Marietta Pressure Washing to my friends, family, and colleagues.


I just installed new landscaping so I was cautions about hiring someone to pressure wash the windows…they did not damage or step on any of the plants around the house and covered them to protect them from the cleaning. Thank you Marietta Pressure Washing, you do great work.


I am a very satisfied customer of Marietta Pressure Washing. They really know how to deliver on customer service. The crew showed up on time, didn’t step on my plants, and cleaned up after themselves.
