      Power Wash Before and After

      I swear I could quit my job and become a full time power washer for hire. I find it so satisfying. The photo doesn't do 100% justice but this little fence enclosure went from black and back to wood.
      I did a few fences and gates.

      Thanks Everyone!!

      Looks great! I'm going to look for one end of season sale on power washers. We have some brick that's getting a bit scungy.

      Personally I'm addicted to my riding mower. The parts of the yard that I can't get to with it can get a little rough but I'm all over what I can get to.

      I thought about renting a pressure washer but decided the deck actually needed more than just a good washing so I got the painters to do it. But I was a little jealous that they were having so much fun. But there are lots of spindles that had to be cleaned on all sides so I think I might have lost some enthusiasm part way through if I'd done it myself.

      Now, question, how is it that the time stamp on both of your photos is exactly the same, to the second, just 24 hours apart?

      Rented a power washer a few years ago to do the house and it sure did a good job. Trying to convince hubby that it needs it again.

      OH has one and I hate him using it. So much energy, noise and water, and we are on a well. But it does help spiff up the deck. That black colour the deck turns, like your "before" fence, gets slippery when it rains. It cleans the white resin outside chairs much faster and better too. I used to go at them with Comet Cleanser, which is pretty powerful stuff, and then had to rinse anyway.

      I can go back a couple of days on the cam and just did the rewind to get the photos at the same time of day so the shadows were the same for the photo.

      I'll post more about the cams I bought maybe later today. They are cheap and pretty handy.


      I agree it is a waste of water and I don't crazy with it but a couple fences and gates were black and I was thinking of replacing them but tried the power wash first. They turned out pretty good.
