If your home is covered with stone or brick you may think that this does not apply to you, but you should take care when pressure washing any surface. The wrong setting or cleaner can damage or dislodge material.
Consider the temperature before starting a pressure washing job. The temperature should be between 50-80 degrees Fahrenheit when you wash. When it is too cold, the water can freeze on contact which can cause damage to your home.
Too hot can cause cleaners to evaporate too quickly, making its cleaning power less effective.

If you need to pressure wash in the winter months, you will want to de-ice your exterior surfaces to prevent slips and falls while washing. Clean your house of snow and ice especially in the roof and gutters.
Chemicals can be weakened by cold weather, so make sure to use extra if washing in the winter.
