“Things I’ve Cleared Away With My Pressure Washer”: Here are some funny stories from our customers with pictures and such around using a pressure washer.
If you need to get rid of dirty, grimy, or just plain junk items, a pressure washer is the best way to get it done. And we thought – why not compile some funny stories from our customers that include a pressure washer and show everyone how you can use this incredible tool for all sorts of things? We hope you enjoy these stories as much as we did.
We asked our customers, “What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever cleaned with your pressure washer?” Here are some of their best responses.
- Our dog’s fur
“Our dog’s fur… I can’t believe it worked, but we tried it and got all the fur off the driveway. Seriously! Don’t ask me how we thought to try that.”
- Septic Tanks
“We have a septic tank, and the tank is below ground level with a small valve for pumping out the water when it comes time to clean out. Well, one day, the pump wasn’t working, and I just sort of flipped a switch in my mind and said, ‘hey, I wonder….’ It took a little bit of doing, but I was able to pressure wash out that septic tank without having to dig anything up or do any major excavating. Got it clean as a whistle! And you know what that means, right? Yeah—my wife is not so happy about this story….”
- Graffiti on an old fence
“We have an old wooden fence in the backyard, and every once in a while, some idiot graffiti would appear on one of the fence boards. I don’t know how these geniuses get their spray-paint cans and markers away from the store without being noticed, but they seem to manage it somehow.
Anyway, I would paint over the graffiti with white paint, and that would work for a while until the next time someone came along. But then I got my pressure washer and discovered that it’s pretty easy to wash off the graffiti instead of painting over it. It just takes a little more water than you might think — you can’t use too much, or you’ll start washing off more than just the graffiti, so you have to hold the sprayer very close to the surface, almost touching it.
It’s amazing what kids will do when bored, but I don’t mind. It gives me something to do with all that extra water!”
- Mud from my garden hose
“I have a love-hate relationship with the garden hose. I love the convenience of watering my plants without having to drag out a heavy nozzle or anything. But I hate that no matter what I do, it seems like I end up spending half an hour trying to untangle it or trying to find all of the kinks in it. This isn’t even getting into the fact that finding something to coil it around at the end can also be a pain.
The other day, though, I decided just to use my pressure washer to rinse off all of the dirt and sand that had accumulated on the garden hose after having laid on the ground for goodness knows how long. It worked like a charm! The mud simply washed off with minimal effort from me, and in less than ten minutes, I had.”
Takeaway: Pressure washing is fun and practical. Really!
The pressure washing we’ve done around the house has allowed us to tackle many cleaning projects that would have been a lot more difficult to do with just brushes and mops. There are a few things we’d still instead not try and clean with a pressure washer, including wooden furniture and our roof. Still, we’ve found various other uses for it, and we think you will too. :)For any queries related to the use of a Pressure Washer, feel free to contact us!
