This morning we (Christi, SAO, and I) were discussing power washing driveways and decks. SAO, my wonderful mother-in-law, thought she might borrow my pressure washer to power wash her deck and house across the street. Without a moment’s thought, my answer was “no.”
My power washer is gas powered, and, while it’s not truly a professional model…it’s not far away from the pro-models as far as pressure delivered goes. And, well, lets just say that I can’t picture my mother-in-law using anything gas powered besides her car.
We were discussing the dangers of using a gas-powered appliance such as this: tearing up the wood on the deck, accidentally injecting water into your skin (perhaps I was a little over dramatic on that one). I even think I’ve heard of people removing the mortar from between bricks on accident.
SAO, dear old Grandma Shirley, my mother-in-law mentioned that she thought my power washer would be gentler than a professional model. My response:
I don’t buy gentle tools.
