However, if you don’t know how to use a pressure washer properly and aim the wand at your wood deck, railing or steps, you can transform smooth, treated lumber into a weathered fishing pier in a matter of seconds.

Do you use your pressure washer to clean your brick paver driveway, sidewalk or patio? I’m talking about the interlocking bricks made from concrete that have dry pigments added to them. These pavers features an assortment of earthy colors and tones.
