Hello, my name is Grady Johnson and I'm a professional painter and today I represent expertvillage.com. Okay, now we're going to talk about pressure washing a jalousie window. Now, this is one of the most difficult things to pressure wash on a house. This one is even harder it doesn't have a screen on it and it will leak water. Prepare your client for the fact that a little water may come through, but there is a way to save a lot of damage. Now remember you want to work this frame all the way around so that we clean all of that up. Now we want to wipe down the glass, don't get in tight on that glass, you'll break it, it'll be a mess and then you're going to have water all inside the house. So be very careful that you stay way back from your work, something like this, get your fin going first, then put it on the work. Now by shooting down on the jalousie, it's going to work like rainwater does when it hits it, it'll clean up the jalousie's and it'll also clean up the area. Now that we've cleaned up all of the glass and we've gotten that all swept down, we can begin to work on the edges, the wood and the seal that is connected to the window. Remember when you're in close, don't get too close with your water stream, you don't want any of that flying in the house.
