Pressure Washing - Exterior Trim

The exterior trim - between the brick facing and the eaves - is painted wood, a dentil-molding. My house is about 35 years old. The trim has probably been painted 3 or 4 times, last time six years ago. Can't afford to repaint right now.

This dentil-style trim is filthy. I'd like to clean it before winter. Can I use a pressure washer to clean it? Or is there a better way? Thanks.

Pressure Washing - Exterior Trim

A pressure washer will do fine. An experienced user will know what chemicals to use for cleaning as well as the pressure and jet sizes to use. To DIY just be careful and try to stay even with your cleaning.
