Power washing is a Bad Idea For Your Stucco

Despite what might you might think, power washing is not a good idea for cleaning the exterior of your home. At CDP Stucco we strongly discourage the use of a pressure washer when you are cleaning your stucco home With rates as high as 243 miles per hour, a power washer’s strength is comparable to Category 6 hurricane winds. That kind of intensity isn’t safe for textured surfaces and will invariably destroy your stucco exterior.

In our experience, even the lowest settings on your pressure washer can cause damage and prompt thorough stucco repairs. From water intrusion to mildew growth, a number of stucco problems can result from intense water pressure.

Recommendation: Never use a power washer to clean your stucco. Instead, use a garden hose or soft scrub brush. If you’re unable to clean your stucco safely or don’t have the supplies necessary, be sure to contact a professional stucco company for assistance.

Pro Tip: Pressure washing your stucco can lead to extensive water leaks. Even the smallest leaks can cause irreparable damages not only to your stucco but also to the foundation of your home.
