How to Pressure Wash a Bird Bath

Pressure Washer Product Expert

A bird bath is a great complement to any lawn, keeping your yard full of life and energy.

Being an outdoor accessory, bird baths can quickly accumulate dirt, mold, mildew and moss.

If you have a pressure washer, taking care of this nasty build-up is not a problem and will leave your bird bath looking like new again.

Just make sure the birdies have flown the coop first!

Start spraying from a distance. Use a delicate low-pressure spray pattern and move closer as more power is needed. A basic spray with your pressure washer is usually all that's needed to get rid of the dirt and grime.

Pressure Washer BrushRotating Scrub Brush
If spraying doesn't do the trick, you may need a rotating scrub brush attachment. A rotating brush uses the power of your pressure washer to spin the inner bristles of the attachment. This added cleaning power will make removing those tough stains a breeze.

BleachDon't worry if you find mold or algae on your bird bath. Whip up a mixture of bleach and water, 1-part bleach to 4-parts water, and start scrubbing.

Mold or algae needs to be removed by hand and your pressure washer should not be used. Bleach can cause damage to the inside of your machine. Rinse well, and your bird bath will look good as new.
