A PRESSURE WASHER CUTS LIKE A KNIFE – PROTECT YOURSELF AND YOUR CREW!
- Insure all windows and hatches are closed and well-sealed
- Insure the water drains on the boat are open
- Remove items you don’t want to get wet (outdoor carpets etc…)
- Have a means to get rid of excess water before you start power washing
- Make sure the area is clean to insure you don’t track dirt back in the boat upon entry
- For best results, make sure the spray is directed at 90 degrees to the surface
- Clean in small 3 to 4 foot sections keeping the nozzle perpendicular to the area
- Start with the highest point of the boat’s hull being cleaned
- In many cases, there are specific times for cleaning agents to be on hull surfaces
- When washing dock lines, apply plenty of water with no detergents
- Topsides are done last.
- If your boat is equipped with waterways, pull the plugs out to get rid of the water
- Use a squeegee and absorber to dry
- Windows are cleaned separately with the appropriate solution
- Do not allow wash water to spill over the sea wall; it must go down the drain and through our environmental protection system.
