Pressure cleaners are more commonly referred to as pressure washers and can be used for a variety of cleaning jobs, whether you plan on cleaning the exterior of your home, the concrete in your driveway or your shower floor. Because this tool can be used for so many kinds of jobs, there are just about as many types of power washers available as there are places you want to clean. In order to clean a shower floor, a light-duty consumer model should suffice. Always read the owner's manual prior to using a pressure washer and wear gloves, goggles and ear muffs for protection.
Things You'll Need
- Light-duty consumer model pressure washer
- Work gloves
- Eye goggles
- Ear muffs
- Pressure-washer-approved cleaning solution
- 65-degree pressure washer tip
Spray the shower floor thoroughly with plain water to ensure loose dirt and grim are removed.
Add a cleaning solution to the shower floor. This solution must be approved for use with a pressure washer. Using the wrong type of detergent can cause damage to the shower's finish.
Place a 65-degree tip on the end of the sprayer so that the water comes out in a wider spray pattern. This wide coverage allows you to cover more space when using the pressure washer so that the time it takes to clean the shower floor is reduced significantly.
Press the trigger to spray the entire shower floor, ensuring that you position the wand at least 3 feet away from the surface. Spraying too closely can cause the water to ricochet.
