How To Avoid Swirls When Using Your Surface Cleaner

A pressure washer surface cleaner uses high powered water jets to clean dirt, dust, grime, and debris from a flat surface. When used with the right cleaning product, the fast-spinning jets of water can dislodge even the stickiest grime from surfaces. Once cleaned correctly with a surface cleaner, the spotless surface can look as good as new.

Flat surface cleaners are an efficient accessory that makes washing flat surfaces like driveways, sidewalks, patios, garages, and even walls in some cases much easier, faster, and cost-efficient. While you may run into problems using a surface cleaner like rough functioning, pressure washer leakage, abrupt shutting off, pressure washer pulsations or stuck swivels, the most common issue is the swirls or stripes caused by these cleaning machines.

Stripes are the curved or swirled patterns that can be seen on the surface after using a surface cleaner. These swirls can be avoided easily with proper training and practice. The key is to use the right size surface cleaner for your pressure washer and to walk slowly enough to avoid stripes.

The flat surface cleaning attachment can be used with a wide range of pressure washers. The size of the surface cleaner will depend on the size (GPM and HP) of the machine.

Using a pressure washer surface cleaner is really easy. You can use it to clean concrete floors, patios, driveways, garage floors, and a variety of surfaces. But there are certain steps you need to take to ensure the device performs flawlessly.

Before cleaning with your surface cleaner, clear the area of large stones or other loose debris that could hamper the operation of the pressure washer surface cleaner. Large debris can cause the flat surface cleaner’s nozzles to get stuck or bent.

When connecting your flat surface cleaner to your pressure washer, always make sure all connections fit properly. Loose connections will lead to improper cleaning and it might even damage the pressure washer.
