How to Strip Paint & Rust Using A Pressure Washer

Pressure washing contractors use Unimanix's Pressure Washers.Pressure washers are powerful cleaning machines that can blast away layers of rust and paint from any surfaces. Before you begin, it is essential to prep the surface before adding a fresh coat of paint. You’ll need to remove peeling paint to provide a solid base for the new layer of paint. Not only will pressure washing remove loose paint and built-up grime, but this method will also improve paint adhesion, saving you time and money.

Why use a pressure washer to remove rust or paint?

Thanks to their technology and advanced characteristics laveuses à pression offer a good pressure and flow control to remove rust and paint. Time-consuming and outdated cleaning methods such as manually scrubbing and scraping only add unwanted labour costs and are ineffective in removing rust and peeling paint. Using a pressure washer will cut the time usually required in removing paint, rust, and corrosion from metal surfaces and with any other exterior surface as well.

However, careful consideration should be given to any surface and material before using a pressure washer. For example, surfaces such as old bricks, fibreglass, plastics, aluminum, and wood can be damaged by applying high-pressure. As such, the best method to remove peeling paint or rust is first to determine the surface material and the type of paint used before starting the job. You may want to consider hiring a professional cleaning company to remove paint and other coatings from sheet steel, aluminum siding, plastics and fibreglass to ensure these materials won’t pit or warp after pressure washing.

Wear safety glasses and closed toe shoes. Prep the area, including closing all windows and doors. Use the right nozzle, ideally, the 25-degree green tip and 15-degree yellow tip nozzles are usually the best choices to remove paint. A good rinsing is critical. If the job requires repainting, any cleaner residue will cause poor paint adhesion. Narrow-angle cleaning is necessary to remove paint or rust from metal surfaces so as not to damage the surface. Remember to work in sections and to keep the nozzle moving at all times. Depending on the surface type, you may need to wait for several days before you can begin to repaint.
