Is It OK to Pressure Wash a Wood Deck?

Most people tend to look at and discuss various matters pertaining to pressure washing in an almost entirely positive light. While there is most certainly a lot of positivity that you can bring into your day to day routine by incorporating a bit of pressure washing into it, suffice it to say that there can be some downsides to it as well and these downsides should give you pause so that you can carefully consider their implications as well as figure out if there is any way at all for you to avoid them at the end of the day.

 

One thing that you should be exceedingly cautious regarding is using power washing Friendswood on wooden surfaces. The thing about this that you need to start filling up your brain cells with is that the high pressure can make the wood splinter. Using a really low pressure setting is the way to go, but you should also realize that if there are any splintered bits in the wooden deck from the get go, using even the tiniest pressure setting would make the splintering far worse in the long run.

 

Only a highly trained professional can even consider doing something like what is being discussed here. If you want to give pressure washing your deck which is made out of wood a try, you should go for the lowest pressure level that your machine has to offer to you. Slowly work your way up, and remember to angle the jets in such a way that they are not hitting the wood directly from above but are instead hitting it at a bit of an angle all in all.
