Pressure washer to remove peeling paint


Iím preparing my house for painting - some peeling paint on the siding needs to be removed. The problem is that using a paint scraper or a sander requires too much time as the area is really big. Can I just use a pressure washer?

I’m not sure this won’t damage your siding.

Pressure washing is a good precursor to scrape and sand
It may even remove a fair amount of loose paint
However, you will still need to scrape and sand
