Pressure Washing a Garage Floor
How to Restore Your Clean Garage Floor
Every spring, homeowners set out to pressure wash their garage floors. However, a summer-long onslaught of spider webs, oil stains and dried leaves can turn any garage into a grease-caked dirt haven. To restore your garage floor its previous glory, all you need is a good quality pressure washer, some degreaser detergent, and a little know-how. We'll start off with the know-how, and then we'll point you to where you can find the rest. Be Cautious of Hazards Pressure washer are powerful tools, and you exercise caution when using them. Wear steel-toed boots if possible, or at the very least closed-toe shoes. Since you'll be aiming highly-pressurized water at the floor near your feet, the last thing you want to do is slice through your toes. Also, be extremely careful using a gas-powered pressure washer in a garage. They emit odorless and deadly carbon monoxide gas. Make sure you always place the pressure washer unit outside of the garage in a well-ventilated area where the fumes can vent away from you.
