    Well, the proper way to pressure wash can be quite frustrating if you are new to the business. Now, in noway am I saying that I am pro. But what I have found is that using the proper chemicals and pressure will do the job! How many times have you seen a guy or gal pressure washing there house with the nozzle inches from the surface? Not good! Remember, chemicals lift the debris from the surface... the pressure washer will simply rinse it away. Rinsing is achieved primarily with gallons per minute and not with pressure. Like I said... I'm no pro... but I check out various sites where the pros give some good advice!

    Right on Jay. Get the proper gallons per minute and pressure combined with the correct chemicals and you will get professional looking results. With anything it takes practice to get it right.
