ATTENTION: Even though this high-pressure washes will scour off loose and old paint, we do not suggest using it as a paint removal tool. You run a chance that the pressure washer will gouge the wood siding or even worst, knock the mortar from between bricks. If you’re interested in power washing brick to remove paint, learn how to pressure wash a brick house correctly.
Many inexperienced homeowners feel it will save them time but in reality, it won’t. You will still have to manually scrape off the additional remaining paint, not saving you much time.
CAUTION: If your house was built anytime before 1978 you could have exterior paint on it that contains lead. Paint containing lead was banned after 1978 and all new construction used water-based or latex paint. Make sure to get a sample of it tested before trying to power wash your house. Pressure washing is not the method to use for paint preparation of a home with lead-based paint. We strongly suggest you contact Miami-Dade Health Department for instructions on how to safely handle the removal of the paint.
Best surfaces to use pressure washing are on vinyl, wood, masonry, and aluminum siding.
It is not recommended by anyone of our team to use on hardboard siding. Hardboard is the most vulnerable surface to the water pressure. More so than wood, it can easily be gouged and very difficult to repair.
