Safety with Water Pressure Cleaning

Pressure cleaning is a fantastic way to keep areas around a home or commercial space clean and free of debris. Water pressure cleaning is best for hard surfaces such as concrete floors, paved driveways and walkways, and tiled surfaces. It is recommended to only pressure wash outside the home and with adequate personal protection measures. When in doubt, it is always best to leave it to the experts.

There are some key safety measures which we follow when water pressure cleaning. The stream of highly pressurized water can cause major injury as it can cut through skin and damage muscle. When using this equipment, building managers services Sydney must practice the following:

  1. Personal protective equipment (PPE) – wearing adequate protection is very important when using water pressure cleaning equipment. Glasses or goggles are needed to protect the eyes from flying debris. Fully enclosed shoes are needed to protect the feet from the water stream.
  2. Keep your eyes open and focus on the task – diverting attention away from your surroundings can have dire consequences. Small children and pets that may run out in front of you could be severely harmed by the stream. Building managers services Sydney will prepare and enact detailed safety plans to minimize these risks.
  3. Avoid using ladders or leaning to reach – water pressure cleaning makes a large amount of force when active, this is often difficult to control. Adding balance on a ladder to this makes it much more difficult and too dangerous. There are telescopic wands if reaching a high place is required for cleaning.
