One of the most frequently made mistakes that we have taken note of in the world of pressure washing involves people using the exact same kind of nozzle and pressure setting for the entirety of the endeavor. If you are trying to pressure wash a car, suffice it to say that you need to be a fair bit more discerning about how much pressure you decide to implement at any given point in time. What’s more is that you need to keep changing this pressure level in some way, shape or form.
A big part of the reason why that is the case has to do with the fact that certain parts of your car that have paintwork done on them will need a nozzle that is about forty degrees since this would spread the spray out a bit thereby reducing the pressure to more manageable levels that would not scratch up the paint. However, trying to use the forty degree nozzle while pressure washing the brakes and tires would be less than ideal, since the pressure would not be high enough to wash away dried up mud and other debris.
A twenty five degree nozzle is best for such parts of your car, so you should switch between them as you move from one part of your car to the next. Countless people complain that pressure washing is not suitable for cars because they failed to realize the essential nature of using two separate nozzles. The paint on your car can be surprisingly fragile, and if you damage it your car’s value would drop dramatically so this is clearly something that you need to be really cautious about.
