A pressure washer with clean water cannot clean the exterior of the house correctly. For you to remove the mold, paint, grease, stains, rust, and all the dirt from the walls you need to use detergents. Fill the tank of the pressure washer with the detergents. A wad should be used to apply the soap on to the surfaces after you flick the valve to the on position and switch the soap nozzle. Pressure washers that have onboard detergent tanks are easier to use.
Immerse the siphon into the bucket and preheat the surface if the material allows before you apply soap on it. To prevent the formation of streaks of detergent on the surface apply the detergent from bottom to top. Soap the stained parts generously. Leave the soap onto the surface for more than ten minutes but do not let it dry out. Rinse the detergent from top to bottom, switch off the tank valve of the pressure washer, take off the nozzle, or the siphon from the bucket. Use any of these detergents to pressure wash your home.

You can use vehicle detergents to pressure wash your home. They are the best detergents for cleaning salts, road films, and unusual dirt from the walls. Do not use them on aluminum and painted surfaces because they are heavy-duty caustic detergents for cleaning heavy equipment. Use detergent that has wax in them to leave the aluminum and paint surface shinning because they are less abrasive and will cause no damages to the surfaces.
Select affordable detergents to use but can also meet your cleaning needs.
Understand the warnings for using the detergents before you use them. If you assume the precautions on the package, you may end up damaging the walls of your home by busing the detergents inappropriately. Some will bleach the paint on the wall and leave an ugly, faded surface.
If the detergents are too harsh, they will damage the pressure wash, which will lead to added expenses of repairing it.
