It is amazing that there are so many different types of work that window cleaners do. It also amazes me that there are so many different tools we use from day today. If you have stucco around your windows and you want to clean the stucco. A good tip is to use a pressure washer. A very good tool is a pressure washer extension pole. The pole can make you cleaning job very easy if you have hard to reach areas.
For another example,a window cleaner might be cleaning windows and find that the stucco surface around the windows is also very dirty and needs cleaning.
A good tip for the window cleaner is to use a pressure washer to clean the surface to bring back the stucco’s natural color. When using a pressure washer to clean stucco,you have to be very careful not to damage it.
It could take hours,days or even years of experience to learn how to clean an area without damaging it. For example,if you have a 4000 PSI pressure washer and you get too close to stucco,it will remove or damage the stucco.
Stucco can be repaired and painted again,but this is a time consuming project for a window cleaner and a window cleaning nightmare. So,cleaning stucco can be done with a pressure washer,but the window cleaner has to be very careful not to damage it,or it will cost him or her time and money.
If the stucco has just surface dirt,it is usually easier to clean than stains like algae. Algae stains on stucco are very common. An area with algae must be tested first to see if it can be cleaned without damaging the surface. If you are using a powerful pressure washer,a different tip can be used to reduce the pressure for a lighter cleaning.
Once the window cleaner has the experience with hard to clean areas,he or she can usually do a quick test and know if the area can be cleaned without painting. If the area is really stained where the stain has absorbed into the stucco,then this area would need to be cleaned and painted.
