Ok to pressure wash Bluestone and Brick?


Hi, I have a challenge at home this time of the year with plums by the dozen falling on daily basis and splattering over the bluestone. Very hard to clean. Was wondering if I could use an electric power washer on the bluestone safely? And if I do buy one, I would also be curious to know if I can use it on a brick patio I also have in my house.

As far as I know, the electric pressure washers, are not as strong PSIxGPM, as gas washers.

Thank you

My k- Archer electric came with several different nozzles.

I learnt that I needed to clamp a probe on the nozzle to keep me from getting too close to my Trex decking, but worked out a system with a 1/8 " welding rod and 2 small automobile gas line hose clamps, on the FAN spray to clean off birdie dodo., without mangling the surface.

So you should be able to prevent damaging your stone and bricks the same way.

6-8" prod should be plenty far away to stop the damage.

P.S. Those ripe plumbs make very good KICKAPOO JOY JUICE.
