In this clip I'm going to show you how to pressure wash your pool deck area. There's some grime. You always want to try to pre-wet the area like you do anything else. Pre-wet it, see where the water's going to run. So, we're going to take the pressure washer in a larger sweeping motion. This deck was done not too long ago. And you can see how the mud starts to pile up. Sometimes with these screen enclosures the water's going to start to pond up. So you always need to be keeping an eye on where the water's going to pond up to get it away of the area that you're cleaning. So my main point is that when you're cleaning a pool area, especially one with an enclosure, you need to use more of like a sweeping motion almost like you're sweeping the mud and water out of the door.
