The Ultimate Guide to Pressure Washing

If you’re like us, you love before and after home pictures. But you wouldn’t believe a few of the “before” images we’ve seen at Mi-T-M. In some pictures, you can’t even tell the original color of the vinyl siding, others show greasy and blackened driveways and garages, while some photos feature decks covered in slimy algae.

Not only are these unsightly and unwelcoming sights, many of these spaces are slippery and dangerous.

As a busy homeowner, it’s easy to let maintenance and home projects fall by the wayside. But what if you had an easy, economical and quick way to clean your property from top to bottom and from sidewalk to back fence? You do.

Pressure washing is an excellent method to make fast work of built-up grime, mud, and mold and mildew. And at Mi-T-M, we’re your trusted provider of high-quality residential and industrial pressure washers.

Nearly 48 years ago, Mi-T-M’s founder , AJ Spiegel realized the need for a portable, economical, and powerful cleaner. With a background in painting and cleaning, he built a 1000 PSI gas-powered unit. It was a humble, but important step. We’ve come a long way since then and today we offer hundreds of industrial and residential cleaning products and equipment.

With a variety of sizes and types, our powerful Mi-T-M machines can help you tackle patios, driveways, decks, siding, pools, fencing, lawn furniture, and even prep for painting. Once dirty and unclean spaces suddenly transform into sparkling and polished areas. Those are exactly the types of pictures we cherish: the after photos.

We’ve prepared this fun step-by-step guide on pressure washing to help you learn how to pressure wash your home. Used along with our short and informative videos, we believe you’ll be an expert in no time and your home will be the envy of the neighborhood.

And the Third Little Piggy Built His Home of Bricks

Brick homes are beautiful, sturdy, and timeless. Like other home surfaces, bricks become dirty, mossy, and need regular maintenance. Unlike many other home materials, brick is porous and more prone to discoloration and structural damage. Therefore, before you attempt to pressure wash your brick home, you should know the proper methods for cleaning.

Follow these 7 basic steps of preparation before you use your pressure washer and you’ll be on the fast track to a newer, brighter brick home.

  1. Shut off outdoor electrical components and avoid high-voltage spots like your central air conditioner.
  2. Wear waterproof clothes, gloves, and goggles.
  3. Survey and study the surface. If you see cracks or holes between the bricks, you must repair them before you begin pressure washing. Carefully patch these areas with mortar and let them cure for at least a week. Once they’re dry, you can move to the next step.
  4. Soak and saturate your brick with H20 from top to bottom. Water helps prepare the brick for cleaning. It also prevents the bricks from absorbing harsh detergents.
  5. Test an out-of-the-way area. Use your pressure washer to blast away grime from a small space of brick. This experiment will show if you need to adjust your pressure washer settings before you get started on the entire home. Remember: You don’t need to harness the power of a tsunami to clean brick. Turn down the PSI until you find just the right setting.
  6. Apply pressure washer detergent. Choose only cleaners designated for cleaning brick. Spray the detergent from bottom to top to prevent streaking. Allow the cleaner to soak into the brick surface for 5-10 minutes. Do not allow the detergent to dry on your surface.
  7. Check for extra challenging stains. If you find an especially dirty area, use a rotary scrub brush. This will help loosen the grime and is a safer approach than cranking up the pressure washer.
  8. Reverse, rinse and repeat. When you applied water to moisten the brick, you sprayed from bottom to top. Now, to clear the detergent and reduce residue, you should gently spray water from top to bottom.

Some people, once the brick is dry, opt to apply a brick and mortar sealant. Your local hardware store can help you select one that’s made exclusively for brick.

There you have it. With just seven easy steps, you’ve improved the look and extended the life of your brick home. Aren’t you glad you didn’t build your home of straw?

Pressure Wash Guide

Pressure Washing House Siding with the Experts

Now that we’ve shown you the proper techniques for pressure washing brick houses, we’d be remiss if we didn’t explain how to pressure wash homes with vinyl siding.

Vinyl siding is used on more than 32 percent of new homes in the U.S. It’s a low-maintenance, inexpensive material that never needs to be painted. But it’s also notorious for accumulating mold, mildew, dirt and debris. And because vinyl siding is malleable, you cannot blast it with too much force.

Pressure Wash House Siding

Follow these easy steps and you’ll be well on your way to uncovering a home with tons of curb appeal.

  • Put safety first. As with any outdoor pressure washing job, avoid electrical lines, conduits and outdoor appliances. Cover any exposed outlets.
  • Pick the right tool for the job. You’ll want at least 3,000 PSI to reach high, out-of-the way places. Whether you prefer a gas- or electric-powered pressure washer is your choice. But Mi-T-M is happy to discuss the best fit for you.
  • Wear waterproof clothes, gloves, and goggles.
  • Protect any shrubs and bushes that might be damaged your by high-pressure spray work. Use a drop cloth or a plastic tablecloth to cover them while you work.
  • Scan the surface of your vinyl siding. If you notice any particularly moldy spots, you should pre-treat them with a mixture of bleach and water. Scrub the spot with a sponge by hand and rinse with water. Pre-treat a test spot with the bleach mixture before proceeding to the next.
  • Get ready to apply detergent to your vinyl siding. Be sure to use cleansers made especially for pressure washers. Mi-T-M offers pressure washers with injectors that mix your solution right into the jet spray.
  • Test your pressure washer on a small spot of vinyl before you clean the whole kit and caboodle. This will give you a good measure of the power you’ll need. You can bump the impact on the surface by putting less distance between you and the siding. Remember, more distances equals less pressure.
  • Apply your soap mixture using a lower pressure setting. Working from bottom to top, aim for smooth and steady strokes with your wand.
  • Sweep your washer from left to right using overlapping strokes. Keep the wand pointed slightly downward to avoid spraying underneath the gaps in the vinyl siding.
  • Allow the cleaning agent to sit and soak into the vinyl for about 5-10 minutes. Just be sure you don’t let it dry on the surface.
  • Begin the rinse process with fresh, clean water. Again, start at the top and work your way down with the pressure washer to prevent streaking.

Now, step back and admire your handiwork. If you’ve followed our tips and techniques above, your home should look brand spankin’ new. Well done, weekend warrior. Well done.

All Hands On Deck

You may not be the captain of a ship, but you can make sure your own deck is in tip-top shape. But don’t do it the old-fashioned, backbreaking way. Let Mi-T-M provide just the right equipment and training.

You love your deck. It’s a great place to read, relax and entertain. Make sure you learn the proper way to preserve and protect it.

Rather than bending over and scrubbing each square inch of your home deck, use a pressure washer to blast away the months of grime and goo. But first, do no harm. Remember that the surface is sensitive. Before you begin, read and follow our suggested tips and techniques below.

Sweep, rinse and wet your deck thoroughly. Make sure you’ve removed all debris and dirt. Wear waterproof clothes, gloves, and goggles.

Pressure Wash Deck

Find the right pressure setting via the unloader valve. Turn the unloader counterclockwise for lower pressure and clockwise for higher pressure. For example, soft woods like pine require much lower amounts of water pressure. Pick an inconspicuous test spot and start the pressure at about 600 PSI. If you need to go higher you can, but starting with lower pressure prevents irreversible damage. Remember that pressure washers can clean brick (as we explained above), but you don’t need that kind of power for a wood deck.

Use quick connect tip nozzles with 25 or 40 degree output. A quick connect nozzle ensures you can cover a larger surface area and spreads out the force of the pressure washer. Start with a back and forth spray motion about two feet from the ground. Never allow the nozzle to get too close to your wood deck. Damage to your wood surface may occur.

Remember safety at all times. Never point your nozzle at animals, people, or glass. This may seem like a no-brainer, but many people don’t realize the power a pressure washer packs. Avoid accidents and focus only on your deck.

You’re heard the expression: don’t go against the grain. That certainly applies to this pressure washing your deck. Work with the grain of the wood. Why? Doing so will prevent uneven spots or cleaning edges.

Begin pressure washing where your deck meets your home foundation and spray out excessive dirt and debris.

How was the deck swabbing, matey? We’re betting you can’t wait to invite your friends and neighbors over for a BBQ on your “new” deck.

Our Concrete Plan for Success

Ever noticed just how much concrete is on your property? Your driveway, sidewalk, steps, porch, patio and—if you’re lucky enough to own one—pool—are all made out of cement. Ever notice how dirty these spaces can become?

Whether you have months or years of grime to clear, Mi-T-M is here to help. Our pressure washers will make quick work of discolored and dirty concrete. Choose from our large selection of gas- and electric powered pressure washers. No matter how large the job, we’ve got the perfect pressure washer to blast away many layers of gunk. We also offer a wide variety of other equipment that will help make cleaning a snap.

Pressure Wash Patio Concrete

Remember the three P’s of concrete: It is porous, it is penetrable, and it is permeable. What does this mean for you? Well, though it may look hard as rock, you need to use a little common sense and TLC when you’re using a pressure washing to clean concrete.

Start by making a clean sweep of things. Sweep or blow away all excess dust and debris. Pick up and move things like lawn furniture, toys, and potted plants that could be damaged during pressure washing.

Next, think about your plan of attack. If you’ve got a lot of surface area to cover, split up your concrete cleaning into segments. Doing so will allow you to focus on one task at a time and not feel overwhelmed. Once you tackle one area, move on to the next. You won’t wash the same space twice and you’ll be able to take breaks, as needed.

Though Grease was the word for John Travolta and Olivia Newton John, it doesn’t belong anywhere on your property. Grab your bottle of degreaser (you did remember to buy one, didn’t you?), attach your soap injector to the pressure washer and apply degreaser your concrete. For really tough stains, you can use a stiff brush to work the degreaser into the concrete.

Now it’s rub-a-dub time. Mi-T-M will help you find just the right detergent for the machine you purchase. Attach your spray wand, use the soap tip, and begin applying detergent.

Go grab a cold one from the fridge. Be patient and give the detergent up to 10 minutes to soak into your concrete. It’s working . . . even though you’re not.

Now it gets fun. When the detergent has permeated your concrete, it’s time to blast away all the accumulated suds and soil. You’re about to see the fruits of your labor. Switch to a high pressure spray, keep your nozzle at least 10 inches away from the surface and use smooth back and forth motions, overlapping each pass by five or more inches. For really dirty patches, you may need to make several passes with your pressure washer. Mi-T-M also has rotary surface cleaners available for large surface areas that are capable of cleaning larger surfaces faster and easier than a standard cleaning nozzle.
You’re done! It’s high time to stand back and admire your porch/patio/sidewalk/pool/driveway/garage/other concrete area. We’re betting the sparkling surface is clean enough to eat off, mate. And yes, you deserve it, so go grab another cold one.

Don’t Fence Me In

Now that you’ve pressure washed your way to a gleaming home and sparkling exteriors, don’t neglect other property areas like your fences. We’re human and we notice what’s different. Even though your castle may look like new, if it’s bordered by a filthy fence, people will probably notice the fence first. So, to maximize your curb appeal, finish with the fence. You’ll be amazed by the transformation.

Underneath the moldy or mildewed grey or black color of your current dingy wood fence awaits a beautiful surface waiting to be rediscovered. With a bit of elbow grease and time, you can restore the former luster of your fence.

A Mi-T-M pressure washer is ideal for the task. That’s because the power of the spray will blast away the outer layer of old wood cells to reveal the beautiful wood underneath. “Wood” you believe it? You’ll save on the cost of a new fence and will prolong the life of your current fence.

Ready? Here are 10 quick steps to follow for your makeover fence project:

  1. Pick the right pressure washer for the job. It’s like Goldilocks and the Three Bears: Too weak and small and you won’t see any difference. Too powerful and big and you’ll damage the wood and leave erosion and cut marks behind. A good electric model should offer about 1,000-1,500 PSI; a gas model should pack a 2,000-2,500 PSI punch.
  2. Choose the best cleanser for your fence. Acid-based residential cleaners are easy, but may not take care of really tough stains. So you may wish to consider a commercial grade detergent. Speak with the experts where you purchased your Mi-T-M pressure washer. You may want to show them a “before” picture of your fence for reference.
  3. Clear away any objects or tie/cover plants and bushes near the fence line. This will give you direct access to the fence and prevent damage.
  4. Select the right sprayer tip. We recommend a 25-degree tip to begin. However, if find you need more power, you can switch to a 15-degree tip. Power wash a small section of wood see if you’ve got the right degree of pressure.
  5. Wear waterproof clothes, gloves, and goggles. The force of the spray will feel like Niagara Falls. Stay dry; stay safe.
  6. Power up the machine and begin applying the detergent. Hold the sprayer about 3-4 feet away from the fence.
  7. Stay in motion. Keep moving and fanning the sprayer to avoid damaging the wood. Use different angles and move in closer if needed.
  8. Let the cleaning solution sink in and do its magic for about 10 minutes. Just keep a watchful eye to make sure it doesn’t dry.
  9. Rinse thoroughly with fresh water.
  10. Celebrate a job well done.

Well? What do you think? Did you, in your wildest dreams, ever think it was possible to see results like these? These are the types of before and after images we love so much at Mi-T-M. If only looking younger were this easy.

Water Treatment Systems – No Two Installations Are Alike.

Posted on: October 19th, 2022 by mitm_admin | 1 Comment

WASTE WATER TREATMENT

Mi-T-M has been in the Water Treatment business since 1998.  Over the years, we’ve had a great deal of success in a variety of different water treatment industries including rental, implement dealers, golf courses, wineries, breweries and municipalities. Each industry has their own, unique challenges when it comes to water treatment systems and no two installations are alike.

To select the best treatment solution for your business, you will need to determine how much water you wish to treat in a 24-hour period, what substances you need to remove from the wastewater, and whether you’ll be recycling or discharging that wastewater. The following are three types of water treatment systems we sell at Mi-T-M:

As our technology evolved, the Mi-T-M Biological Reclaim Systems became one of our most requested products because of its versatility and simplicity. A Biological system is designed to consume contaminants that other systems may only isolate from wastewater. Mi-T-M’s Bio Series harnesses the power of these  genetically engineered bacteria through a unique process that is chemical free and environmentally safe. “It’s a simple, effective way to filter out waste, and create clean, reusable water,” says Aaron Auger, Mi-T-M Water Treatment  Division Manager. “It’s what we call, ‘The Process of Elimination’.”Biological Recycle Systems

Grease, oil, hydrocarbons and other naturally occurring substances are a food source for millions of microbes that colonize within a Mi-T-M Biological system. As wastewater drains underground, it’s pumped to a bio-reaction tank. In the tank, the untreated wastewater flows through separate chambers, home to colonies of hungry microbes. The stream of water changes direction countless times for maximum microbe contact. The microbes “treat” the water by consuming any organic materials in the water, including oil and grease. The microbes live for this consumption, and the Mi-T-M system provides the three basic elements they need to survive: food, environment, and oxygen.

microbial-waste

Once the microbes have done their work, a pressurized tank delivers the biologically treated water for reuse.

The WOS and WCL Series recycle systems are designed to discharge equipment and vehicle wash-water to sanitary sewers. The oil/water/solids separators will reduce the amount of suspended solids while removing hydrocarbons to meet local sanitary sewer discharge requirements. Note to always check local discharge regulations and limits.

Wash Water Recycle System for Trucking company

WLP Advanced Wash Water Recycle System with a HEG hot water pressure washer installed at a trucking company in Indiana.

The WLP and WCP Series recycle systems are designed to remove free hydrocarbons and filter the water to be sent back through a pressure washer. Once equipment is washed, the untreated wash-water flows into your pit system. A proper pit system for your application is essential in proper wash-water treatment, and a critical element in any wash-water recycle system. The systems come standard with pH and ORP injection and all systems are designed for corrosion-resistance by using stainless-steel tanks.

WCP Clarifier Wash Water Recycle System with an 80-gallon compressor, WTA settling tank and coagulation settling system. Installed by McHenry Pressure Cleaning Systems.

We also offer numerous water treatment system accessories that make it easier for you to customize your wastewater cleaning process. Some of these items include filters, pumps, valves and consumables. Mi-T-M sells a huge assortment of solutions.

There are lots of terms, chemical reactions and other things to know about the wastewater treatment process. Rely on Mi-T-M to provide the tools and equipment you need to treat your water properly and effectively.

We hope you’ve learned a little more about the water treatment process. We look forward to working with you to customize the ideal wastewater treatment system. Contact Mi-T-M today or connect with one of our trusted dealers to learn more.

 

Storm Preparedness – Portable Generators and Wattage for Appliances

Posted on: October 15th, 2022 by mitm_admin | 1 Comment

Portable Generators and Proper Wattage for Different Appliances

Snow. Wind. Ice. Electrical storms. All these elements can wipe out your home’s power for hours or even days. Are you prepared? Don’t be left in the dark. Let Mi-T-M help you prepare for the unexpected.

Electricity is a commodity most Americans take for granted. But when winter ice storms and spring thunder and lightning storms knock out power, many go into full panic mode.

If your electricity goes out, questions begin running through your mind: How long will our food last in the refrigerator? How will we stay warm? Where can we hear the news? What if our basement floods? Where can we charge our appliances? How will we cook our meals? Is the water safe to drink? How can we open our automatic garage doors?

Unfortunately, we can’t control the weather, but we can help you plan ahead and prepare for emergencies. Mi-T-M sells a large array of generators that help in tough situations. For homes, our unique inverters are equipped with CO detection and designed with inverter technology for reduced size, weight, noise and fuel consumption.

Our generators come in many sizes—ranging from 2,000 to 14,000-watts—and types, including portable generators for residential use and commercial models. These rugged machines provide safe, reliable and quiet backup for all your electrical needs.

Different appliances require different levels of wattage as the below graphic shows.

Household Appliance Wattage

How large of a generator should you buy?

Think about your electrical needs during a power outage.

  • What can’t you live without?
  • Calculate the total wattage of all the appliances you wish to use—wattage can be located on each unit’s nameplate or found through on the manufacturer’s website—then multiply that number by three.

The total will tell you what size generator you need.

Our smaller inverter and generator units can easily power lights, phone chargers and appliances like a radio. Larger generator units, can keep your refrigerator running or allow you to watch TV during power outages.

Portable Generator Safety

For your safety—and to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning—all portable generators should be used outdoors or in well-ventilated areas only. Do not run a generator in your home, garage, crawl space, attic, basement or any other enclosed area. Instead, place your portable generator outside.

Contact Mi-T-M or one of our dealers, today. We’ll discuss the best power solutions for all your needs.

Should You Buy or Rent A Pressure Washer?

Posted on: October 9th, 2022 by mitm_admin | 2 Comments

Buying a Pressure Washer vs. Renting a Pressure Washer

From fences to decks, siding to lawn furniture, cars to garage floors; the places and things you can clean with a pressure washer are seemingly endless. So does it make more sense to rent or buy a pressure washer?

If you only use a pressure washer once or twice a year, it may make more financial sense to rent a pressure washer or you may want to hire someone with their own machine to clean your home and items.

Benefits of renting a pressure washer include:

  • No Storage Hassle
  • No Equipment Maintenance
  • Save Money – will be less expensive to rent if you are only planning occasional use.
  • Conserve Water – pressure washers actually use less water than using a garden hose.
  • Restore & Preserve exterior surfaces by removing damaging agents, such as dirt, salt, grease and mold.

Pressure Washer

If you’re a weekend warrior and wash your house, patio, deck and outdoor furniture several times each year, you may want to purchase a sturdy and reliable washer. Mi-T-M offers a huge variety of residential pressure washers, available with an electric motor or gas engine, and ranging from 1400 PSI to 3000 PSI.

Make sure you compare like models when deciding to buy or rent a pressure washer. Once you know which motor and type of washer best fits your needs, you can calculate the hourly cost of renting vs. buying. Renting a pressure washer may cost $50-$150 dollars per day. Buying a pressure washer, depending on the model and motor, runs $300 and up. Therefore, 2-3 rentals may be the same price as buying new.

When you rent a pressure washer, you don’t have to maintain the machine. However, you may have to pay for rental insurance. When you buy a pressure washer, you’ll need to pay for your own repairs, but you’ll own the machine outright. With proper maintenance you’ll have it for many years.

Availability

Availability is another factor. If you own your own washer, you can use it whenever and wherever you need it. However, if you wish to rent, know that there are some seasons and times of year when washers are in high demand. Renting during those times may be more difficult or may cost more.

The experts at Mi-T-M can answer all your pressure washer questions. We’ve been in business for more than 50 years and our promise is to deliver unmatched performance—from the quality of our products to the dedication of each employee who does what’s right for our customer every time.

Let us explain the difference between hot and cold pressure washers, determine which size machine best fits your personal needs, and help you decide if renting or buying is best for you. Call or email us today.
