Pressure washing is an intimidating but very effective method of cleaning simply due to all the components that go into cleaning properly with it. The surface cleaners that are used with pressure washing vary depending on the surface and the grime that is getting removed, and using the wrong chemical could be disastrous. Researching what chemical would be best for you in order to prevent any trouble is a good way to make sure you and your surfaces are safe in the process.
What Chemicals Are Best For Me?
Finding the right chemical for you can be a bit tedious, but here’s a list that can help nudge you in the right direction for what you may need!
- Oxalic Acid is good for dealing with rust and other similar types of grime removal.
- Citric Acid is good for deep stain removal and working with concrete or wooden deck surfaces.
- Sodium Hydroxide works to dissolve grease and works well in cleaning glass and steel.
- Ammonia is also good for cleaning glass and steel.
- Sodium Hypochlorite works well to remove stains and is a strong disinfectant.
- Bleach is a very strong sanitizer and disinfectant for a variety of surfaces.
There’s a variety of chemicals that can be used in place of these, and you should expect some variance when looking into individual services for power washing. It should also be kept in mind that using the wrong chemicals or too strong of chemicals can damage your surfaces. Getting a second opinion from a professional team would be a good call if you find yourself uncertain about what you should use.
