If you are like many people, your motorcycle is an integral part of your life. You use it to explore the world, transport goods and services, and provide transportation for friends and family. With all that work comes dirt, grease, grime and old paint which can make your motorcycle look like a piece of junk on wheels. A pressure washer makes motorcycle cleaning very easy for us.
Pressure washing is one way to remove these problems easily without damaging any surfaces or parts of your bike. The process involves cleaning with high-pressure water at low temperatures so as not to damage anything on the bike while getting rid of all the unwanted material on its surface.
1) Make sure you have the right pressure washers for the type of surface you are about to clean. For near water, low-pressure washing would be best. If it is a patio or lose automotive surfaces you are cleaning, mid-range pressure is needed. For dirty surfaces like road grime or loaded with thick dirt, high-pressure washers are required.
2) You need to get your hose hooked up. You’ll need to know how far away the power supply will be from where you’re spraying. If you’re not sure of how long your hose needs to be, measure out a few feet and see what kind of force and stream you get when it’s at that distance.
3) Determine the type of surface you are cleaning. Some surfaces like patios and decks can be cleaned with low pressures. Dirtier surfaces like painted vehicles or vehicles on the road call for higher pressure (and often more than 2000 PSI).
4) You need to make sure you have all your attachments, including one that is suited for your washer’s inlet. This attachment will ensure you get clean water coming out of your hose while it is hooked up to a pressure washer.
5) Determine the temperature of the area where you’re working. This means making sure you have proper personal protective equipment depending on what sort of weather it is outside – i.e., full-body safety gear if it’s extremely hot out, durable safety gear if it’s freezing, etc.
6) Not all pressure washers are the same; make sure you know how to operate yours before use, especially safety features like an on/off switch or locking trigger. Make sure that these safety releases actually work!
7) When moving your motorbike around to clean any other parts of it, be careful not to bump into objects because the motorcycle is likely still wet and thus more prone to damage. If you do bump into something (or drop the motorcycle), wiggle it back and forth because this will help shake off water droplets instead of pooling them in one spot where they can cause rusting or other forms of corrosion.
8) Try to clean your motorcycle in a location where the ground is flat because this makes it easier for you to move around and reach different parts of the bike.
Pressure washers are a great way to get your motorcycle sparkling clean, but they can also be dangerous if not used properly. If you or somebody that knows how to use pressure washers hasn’t already done so, make sure all precautions are taken before using one on your motorcycle!
