How To Clean Your Outdoor Patio Furniture With A Pressure Washer

Want a sure-fire way to keep your back patio free of friends and family?

Easy: Make sure your patio furniture has dirt, grime and mildew stains on it. At least you’ll have a full cooler of drinks to yourself and less people to cook for.

In all seriousness, patio furniture is supposed to be inviting. If it’s dirty you and your friends won’t want to go near it. But hand washing and scrubbing is not only hard work but time consuming.

That’s the thing about a pressure washer – it cleans fast, and uses less water, and is effortless, and even fun!

Steps To Pressure Washing Your Patio Furniture With Ease

  • Make sure to place your patio furniture on flat surface and spray away from your home’s windows and doors.
  • Attach a low pressure spray 25 or 40-degree nozzle to your pressure washer lance/wand.
  • Unlike pressure washing your car or boat or grill, with patio furniture you want to pressure wash top down.
  • Usually no detergent required but if really bad you can use detergent on the plastic or harder surface of the furniture. If the cushions are being stubborn use a brush to spot clean by hand.
  • Rinse and flush away with low pressure spray.
  • You can use a higher pressure/turbo nozzle for the tables or iron furniture.

How Often Should You Pressure Clean Your Patio Furniture?

At the start of spring each year. It will depend on where you live and if you leave the patio furniture outside all year round but you will probably want to do a good pressure clean of them at the same time you do a first lawn mow. Around April would be a safe bet.

Of course, you can clean them every day if you want because cleaning with a pressure cleaner is so easy.
