A vehicle should be washed down every two to three weeks. Weather factors such as heat, cold, salt air, sun exposure and acid rain can ruin the look and paint on your vehicle. We suggest not to stop washing your vehicle when the summer season ends. Even though it is easier to clean your car or truck in the southern states do not neglect car pressure washing just because the season changed. As a matter a fact, during the wintertime if you drive on snowy roads you should clean your vehicle every week. The salt can cause enormous amounts of damage to your car's chassis and engine. With pressure washers, you can spray off the dirt and salt that accumulates at the surface and the bottom of your car in a quick and precise manner.

If this is the first time you are using a pressure washer, take a few minutes to practice. Try to get a feel for the trigger gun and learn the most efficient spray pattern. We suggest pointing the wand downwards unless it is really necessary to aim it upwards. For a greater control, use both hands when using the power washer. Do not use a ladder in order to pressure wash high points since the recoil from the pressure can knock you off balance. Make sure you are not using dishwashing detergent or laundry soap which can dull the finish and strip off wax coating. Also, before you start pressure washing remove rings, watches and jewelry to prevent scratches and possible injury. All power washers come with the trigger gun that looks like a game squeeze gun. However when pressure washing car, do not play with it by pointing at someone. By doing so you can hurt somebody. One more thing! You should wear safety glasses to protect your eyes and some protective clothing that will keep you dry while washing car.

Now, connect your power washer to the outside valve with the regular hose, attach a nozzle and start the engine (turn on the equipment). Spray your car or truck thoroughly with water. Apply an adequate amount of detergent with a chemical injector. Be sure you use powerwasher approved cleaning solution so that you don't damage the paint on your vehicle or harm your lawn while pressure washing car. The best results are achieved when you work on small sections at a time. Start spraying at the distance of 3-4 feet. If more pressure is needed bring the wand closer to the surface. Equally important is the angle at which you hold the wand. With our electric unit you need to use a 25-degree angle for washing cars and/or trucks, this way no damage can occur because of the sudden high pressure. When spraying, try to use overlapping movements and clean the chasse starting from the bottom and work your way towards the top. Some spots may be more difficult to clean, in that case use more water and soap. Please, do not forget to do the bottom of your car. You can use an angle extension wand in order to clean underneath the body. Five to ten minutes after you’ve sprayed the solution on, you can rinse the surface with the clean water. When rinsing, make sure you start at the top and work your way down until the whole vehicle is detergent free. Do not try to rinse your hands or feet with the pressure washer. It can tear your skin right off. Enjoy your clean car.
