Why hire a brick pressure washing service?
If your brick house looks dull and weathered, consider pressure washing. Pressure washing can bring back the original look of your brick house and make it look brand new! But before you start blasting away with a pressure washer, you should learn about the best methods for cleaning bricks without one.
How to Clean Brick House Without a Pressure Washer
You can clean your brick house in several ways without using a pressure washer. First, use soap and water or bleach-based cleaning solutions with a garden hose or brush to scrub off dirt and debris. You can also use baking soda mixed with soapy water as an effective way to clean brick walls. If you have mildew or mold, use vinegar and water to eliminate it.
Brick Cleaning Solution for Pressure Washer
If you do decide to use a pressure washer, make sure you use the proper cleaning solution. Elkhart Pressure Washing recommends using a mild detergent mixed with hot water specifically formulated for pressure washing brick houses. This soapy solution can help loosen dirt and debris without damaging brick walls. Use the lowest psi setting on your pressure washer—generally around 1500-2000 psi—and hold the nozzle about 12 inches away from the wall when spraying.
How to Clean Brick Indoors
Cleaning bricks indoors requires special care because you don’t want to damage any furnishings or surfaces. When cleaning indoor brick, use a soft brush, mild soap, and water instead of a pressure washer. Please avoid using harsh chemicals, which may damage the bricks and their sealant.
