Water Blaster Uses Around the House

Water blasters, also known as pressure washers, are handy tools to keep in your shed. Their versatility makes them ideal for a variety of household cleaning. 

Let's delve into the diverse uses of water blasters and how they can simplify your household chores.

Exterior Cleaning

Exterior cleaning is a vital aspect of home maintenance, as it not only enhances the appearance of your property but also protects it from environmental damage. Here are just a few of the ways a good water blaster can help keep your exterior clean:


Over time, exterior siding can accumulate dirt, dust, pollen, and other pollutants, diminishing the curb appeal of your home. Water blasters offer an efficient solution for cleaning siding materials such as vinyl, wood, brick, and stucco. 

Cleaning a home's exterior can prove challenging if the house is large. Luckily, you can use a water blaster wand & lance attachment to clean hard to reach areas like roofs and tall buildings.

Decks and Patios

Outdoor decks and patios accumulate dirt, algae, moss, and mildew post-winter due to exposure to elements. Water blasters restore these surfaces, penetrating deep into pores to remove embedded grime and stains without causing damage, regardless of material.


Concrete, asphalt, and paver driveways, especially ones that see heavy use, often stain from oil leaks, tire marks, and organic debris. Regular cleaning can prevent these surfaces from becoming unsightly and slippery. 

A surface cleaner pairs well with a water blaster to further make driveway and pavement cleaning efficient and effective.

Brick and Stone Surfaces

Brick walls, stone facades, and retaining walls often collect dirt, algae, moss, and efflorescence. Water blasters provide a gentle yet effective cleaning solution for these surfaces, thanks to their versatile pressure settings and nozzle attachments.

Fences and Gates

Fences and gates, whether made of wood, vinyl, metal, or composite materials, require regular cleaning to preserve integrity and appearance. Water blasters efficiently remove stubborn dirt, mildew, and debris from fence panels, posts, and decorative elements.

Garden and Patio Furniture

Garden furniture and patio sets are investments that enhance the enjoyment of outdoor living spaces, but they can quickly become weathered and dirty without proper maintenance. Here's how a water blaster can help you keep your patio furniture in top shape:

Material Versatility

Garden furniture, with various materials like plastic, wood, metal, wicker, and fabric upholstery, find versatile cleaning with water blasters. Lower pressure and wider sprays suit delicate materials, while higher pressure and narrower nozzles clean durable ones effectively.

Heavy Duty Deep Cleaning

Over time, outdoor furniture gathers dirt, pollen, bird droppings, tree sap, and other environmental debris, resulting in stains and discoloration. Water blasters penetrate fibres and crevices, effortlessly dislodging embedded dirt and grime.

Mould and Mildew Removal

New Zealand's humid climate often causes mould and mildew issues for outdoor furniture. Water blasters effectively remove these stains, prolonging furniture lifespan and ensuring a clean outdoor environment.

Quicker and Easier

Traditional cleaning methods, like scrubbing with brushes and detergent, are time and labour intensive. Water blasters streamline this process, enabling you to clean multiple pieces in a fraction of the time thanks to their versatile  pressure and nozzle options. 

Vehicle Cleaning

From urban travel to farm work, vehicle cleanliness is essential for maintaining their condition and resale value, ensuring they remain reliable. Water blasters offer an effective solution for vehicle cleaning, surpassing traditional washing methods. Let's explore how water blasters enhance the vehicle cleaning process:

Gentle On Surfaces

Despite their power, water blasters are gentle on vehicle surfaces when used properly. With adjustable pressure settings, you can customise water stream intensity based on surface type, preserving delicate areas like paintwork, glass, and chrome trim.

Save Time And Effort

Compared to traditional hand washing, water blasters clean vehicles much faster and more efficiently. The high-pressure stream quickly removes dirt and debris from the vehicle's surfaces, achieving thorough cleaning in less time.

Water Conservation

Water blasters, with adjustable flow rates and detergent injection systems, conserve water during vehicle cleaning. Choosing a water blaster over a hose or bucket reduces water usage without sacrificing cleaning effectiveness, lowering environmental impact and water bills.


Water blasters are helpful tools for homeowners, providing efficiency and effectiveness across a range of household chores. With adjustable pressure settings, nozzle attachments, and easy of use, achieving professional-quality results is convenient and straightforward. 

Investing in a water blaster simplifies household cleaning routines, enhances living space aesthetics, and ensures efficient maintenance tasks.
