When performed correctly, pressure washing your car can save plenty of time, effort and uses less water than a hosepipe, so what do you have to lose?!
Remove surface dirt and grime
Make sure you select the correct end before you start to use your jet wash, using the incorrect end can cause damage such as paint chipping. If your machine has a variable spray it is advised to set it to 5-8cm wide, alternatively use the soft setting. When cleaning the windows please be aware you will need a wider and less powerful spray to avoid damaging the glass.
Apply car bodywork and window cleaning product
When applying detergent to the car, use the least powerful or widest setting of your jet wash. Some people prefer to remove the end altogether. Leave it to work for a few moments, but not too long or you will end up having to buff it out at the end.
Work on the dirt and grit
If you have an attachable car brush with your jet wash now is the time to use this part. Make sure you clean the wheel arches last as they may contain small debris and stones. This will help to avoid it catching in the brush and scratching onto your paint work. When you have finished this part please thoroughly wash the brush to remove all stones.
The final rinse
If you don't have a variable nozzle with your jet wash, standing further away will also do the same job. It is suggested standing a length of 1 meter is safe not to cause any damage. Again use a lower setting for the windows and more fragile areas.
We hope you found our car cleaning guide useful, please remember to clean your jet wash out after each use to keep it working to a high performance and to remove any dirt.
