Step 1 Prepare the Area You’re Washing
Before you can start pressure washing a deck, driveway, walkway or home, you must first clear the area of all furniture and decor. Remove any potted plants, patio furniture, outdoor rugs, and accents. If you have nearby landscaping, cover it with a tarp to keep it protected from the spray. You should also lay a tarp over gravel and areas with small rocks so they don’t get picked up by the power of the sprayer and thrown into the side of the house.
