Learn How the Right Power Washer Can Get Rid of Unsightly Rust Damage

Rust can come off easily but only when it’s on certain surfaces

Depending on where rust is, it may come off easily or it may be impossible to get off. For example, if there’s rust on a building, sidewalk, or other hard surface then it can likely be gotten rid of without too much trouble. On the other hand, when there’s rust on a soft surface such as vinyl siding, new cement, or wood, then a high pressure washer isn’t going to get rid of it. In fact, it could actually further damage the surface.

Rust can be removed with the right combination of equipment and cleaner

You can buy professional rust-removing cleaners or you can create one from items you likely already have in your home. For example, a paste made out of vinegar, baking soda, and water can get rid of minor rust issues. They’re great for smaller projects such as a frying pan that’s rusted, but it’s not a solution when you need to remove rust from tall buildings or other large areas.

The best way to get rust off of a big scale project

If you have rust on a large scale project, such as an entire building or a fleet of vehicles, then it’s best to use both professional cleaning agents and commercial grade pressure washer. Use chemicals that are made specifically to remove rust, but be sure that you follow every instruction and that you wear the suggested safety clothing. Not doing so can expose you and others to hazardous materials and fumes.

These cleaners work by actually eating away the rust. They are made of acid and can be harmful to both skin and eyes, which is why we suggest wearing gloves and goggles at a minimum. There may be other clothing suggested, depending on your specific needs.
