Everyone has some version of spring cleaning. But, if you live with all the humidity and dampness of the island, there is a winter accumulation of mildew and mold that does not happen everywhere.
So, spring cleaning time is not just an indoor activity, but involves major outdoor power washing.
Our house and garage apartment combined have: the ramp up to the garage, two garage and apartment decks, walkway from the garage to the house, three house decks, wooden driveway, two wooden walkways, and the hot tub. All of these areas are major mold factories during the winter and preservation of the wood plus removal of slippery surfaces is only accomplished by power washing.
When we started this spring we discovered that our old power washer had died since last year. So, a new purchase was in order. We learned long ago that the more power the better, especially where cleaning time is concerned. So, we now have 3,200 psi at work.
The best thing is that it is fun! Nothing as fulfilling as doing a job where you really see the results.
