Tips for using a foam gun with your pressure washer
You need to invest in a foam gun to get the most out of your pressure washer. Pressure washing without a foam gun is like trying to clean your car with a garden hose. It's possible, but it will not give you the best results.
Foam guns attach to the end of your pressure washer's wand and mix soap and water to create a thick, sudsy foam. This foam clings to surfaces and loosens dirt, grime, and other build-ups so that your pressure washer can blast it away easily.
If you've never used a foam gun before, you might wonder how to get started. Here are eight tips for using a foam gun with your pressure washer:
1. Choose the right soap
Not all soaps are created equal. You'll want to choose a soap that is specifically designed for use with pressure washers. These soaps are usually more concentrated than traditional household cleaners, which means they'll be more effective at cutting through dirt and grime.
2. Connect the foam gun to your pressure washer
Most foam guns have a quick-connect fitting that attaches to the end of your pressure washer's wand. Once the gun is connected, you'll need to fill it with soap and water. Follow the instructions with your foam gun to determine the proper ratio of soap to water.
3. Adjust the pressure
The pressure on your pressure washer should be low or medium before adding foam. If the pressure is too high, the foam will be dispersed too quickly and won't have time to work its magic.
4. Apply the foam
Once you've set up your pressure washer and foam gun, it's time to start cleaning! Hold the foam gun about a foot away from the surface you're cleaning and squeeze the trigger to apply the foam. Be sure to overlap your strokes to ensure that you don't miss any spots.
5. Let the foam sit
After you've applied the foam, let it sit for a few minutes to give it time to work its way into all the nooks and crannies. This will help loosen any stubborn dirt and grime so that your pressure washer can remove it more easily.
6. Rinse with a pressure washer
Once the foam has had a chance to work its magic, it's time to rinse everything away with your pressure washer. Start by rinsing from the bottom up so that the dirt and grime run off the surface and not back onto clean areas.
7. Repeat as necessary
Depending on the surface dirty, you may need to repeat steps four through six a few times before the area is completely clean.
8. Let the surface dry
After you've rinsed away all the soap and dirt, it's important to let the surface dry completely before using it again. This will help prevent any water spots or streaks from forming.
