High Pressure Cleaning Machine Safety Tips

Never point your wand at anyone.

Keep pointing the wand down until you are satisfied with the intensity of the pressure. Remember: Our 0 degree red nozzle can etch concrete and it can cause harm to your body. Even if there is no visible damage, the power of a pressure washer can cause internal tissue damage. A pressure washer is not a toy and should not be treated like a spray gun.

Wear protective equipment.

Let's repeat it again: 0-degree red nozzles will damage concrete! Sneakers and jeans won't stand a chance. Your feet, hands and eyes can easily be injured. Not only from high-pressure water jets but also from flying debris. The vast majority of pressure washer injuries can be prevented simply by wearing the proper safety gear. We recommend boots, gloves, long pants, safety glasses, and hearing protection.

Do not operate a pneumatic pressure washer in an enclosed space.

Your Vortexx pressure washer engine emits carbon monoxide, which is dangerous to inhale. Carbon monoxide poisoning can cause nausea, dizziness, and headaches. Pressure wash in a well-ventilated area. If you need to use a pressure washer in an enclosed space, we recommend an electric pressure washer. Save your air pressure washer for outdoor use.

Avoid ladders and work at heights.

It's easy to underestimate the power of a pressure washer. A kickback can easily cause you to lose your balance and fall. Instead, use extension guns, wands, and attachments to clear high places.

Pay attention to your surroundings.

Check the area you will be cleaning to ensure your safety. Consider all possible hazards before starting your pressure washer. Include everything from children to pets, obstacles that you might trip over (such as hoses), and uneven or smooth surfaces. Then, as you pressure wash, be aware of your surroundings for any changes that could become dangerous.

Choose the correct nozzle.

Carving designs on wood or concrete looks cool, but nozzles can be very dangerous. Start with the largest nozzle you have and adjust from there.
