I have been working hard trying to complete a few chores that were left over from the spring cleaning...like pressure washing the two roof decks upstairs. It seems as if the dreadful black mould grows more vicious every year.
Remember I told you I was in the market for a pressure washer...well I've had my new friend for over three months now and I'm very pleased with its performance.
I spent two days working on the decks.....not entire days mind you, since I couldn't complete the job the first day because my neighbour who sleeps late, had his laundry on the line (I think he washed the night before). I could have just as easily finish the job off on day one, but it meant I would have dirtied his laundry hanging on his line when the debris was flying all over from the pressure washing. It doesn't matter that he moved into the neighbourhood and does not speak to anyone, I couldn't find myself being that bad minded, so I put off finishing the job until yesterday.
Early Wednesday morning was the first day on the job.
The hose needed to reach the upper level, so a knot was placed on the end and thrown up on to the roof deck.
I had to make sure that the hose was connected properly to the washer by squeezing the trigger to make sure the water was flowing steadily.
The deck is pretty big , and my extension cord came in quite handy for making the connection to the electrical socket.
The job to be completed is the large black square at the top right which overlooks my neighbour's back yard.
Getting it all off.
Naturally after completing the decks, I figured I may as well give the upstairs patio and the driveway a once over as well...you know how that goes.....then it was the front inside wall....and then the walkway at the side of the house where I fell back in 2012 because of the same slippery mould.....won't be happening this year though....it's all clean thanks to my new friend.
Karcher electric high pressure washer
Designed especially for our local power supply which happens to be 110V (50 Hz).
It was a tiring day, (my back could tell the tale) but my friend Paul passed by, and when he saw me working so hard he brought me lunch from his lunch lady...it was a kind and thoughtful gesture....thanks Paul!!
