This is an easy guide on how to clean your driveway with a pressure washer. You can do it in a way that saves you time. People make one common mistake: cleaning the driveway without a plan. It’s best to start at the highest point and work your way down. That way, the dirty water doesn’t flow back onto the areas you’ve already cleaned.

Next, you’ll need some tools. Get yourself a gas pressure washer with at least 3100 PSI and 2.3 gallons per minute flow rate. Electric pressure washers aren’t quite strong enough for this job. You’ll also want a surface cleaner attachment. It’s a fancy nozzle with wheels that helps you clean the concrete evenly.

Forget the standard wand attachment that most people use. It takes forever, and you end up with uneven cleaning. The surface cleaner is more efficient; it leaves your driveway looking squeaky clean. Here’s a cool trick: the surface cleaner has two nozzles that spin as you clean. This feature helps it remove dirt and grime much more effectively than a regular nozzle.

Skip harsh chemicals – plain water is all you need. It takes about an hour and a half to clean an 1800-square-foot driveway. With this method, you need roughly a gallon and a half of gas. This guide wraps up with some tips to avoid damaging your pressure washer. One important tip is to use a pump saver before storing it. Doing so helps keep the inside parts from rusting. So, there you have it. Watch this video to discover the importance of the pressure washing service.
