POST PATIO PARTY PRESSURE WASHING TIPS



Mustard stains are no match for POWERflow+ Technology™

MILWAUKEE, WI (August 4, 2016) – Mustard, a picnic table staple, will have its day on Saturday, Aug. 6 — National Mustard Day. From Dijon to stone ground, the gold-yellow colored spice is piled on food during backyard BBQs, patio parties and summer get-togethers. And as more and more families hold those dinner parties in elaborate outdoor kitchens and living areas, Briggs & Stratton Corporation wants homeowners to know POWERflow+ Technology is the right tool to help keep the outdoor investment sparkling clean and enjoyable.  

“We have all had backyard parties that resulted in crusted condiments on patio cushions, the deck or grill, and if not treated correctly and swiftly, can cause stains,” said Dan Roche, director of marketing for Portable Power and Cleaning Systems at Briggs & Stratton. “Briggs & Stratton’s detergents and POWERflow+ will help homeowners efficiently wash away any mess.”

POWERflow+ Technology is perfect for any size project.

Briggs & Stratton’s patented POWERflow+ Technology is the only pressure washer with high pressure and high flow modes. The combination makes it possible to deep clean hard patio surfaces, power soap a grill and rinse delicate surfaces such as glass patio tables, faster. The 3000 MAX PSI*/5.0 Max GPM* POWERflow+ Technology pressure washer features a 7-in-1 nozzle which allows users to change between modes without changing nozzles. 

Add detergents and accessories to do the heavy lifting.

Detergent, through its composition, needs time to attach to a stain and lift it from the surface being cleaned, so selecting the right one is the key. Formulated to tackle food, dirt and grime from patios, patio furniture and more, the multi-purpose cleaner is an ideal detergent to help wash away any family members’ mustard faux pas. For greasy messy jobs, such as the grill, the heavy-duty degreaser is a great solution. Homeowners tackling difficult stains should let the detergent soak for 3-5 minutes before rinsing.

“Briggs & Stratton’s line of pressure washer cleaners are created to help speed up the process and improve the results of whatever the homeowner is cleaning. This ultimately means a more enjoyable cleaning experience,” Roche said.

More and more outdoor living areas are being built using unique, intricate and sometimes hard-to-clean objects such as natural stones, stamped concrete pavers, granite and unique woods. For irregular shaped surfaces, homeowners can grab a Briggs & Stratton Dual Action Pressure Washer Brush to help deep clean surfaces where dirt may live. The brush, which is designed to rotate and alternate, allows users to effortlessly scrub soiled areas while the pressure washer works to lift the dirt. The dual action pressure washer brush works with most manufacturers’ pressure washers up to 3,000 PSI.

Additionally, deep cleaning decks, patios, driveways and more can be done up to 

five-times faster† with Briggs & Stratton’s 16-inch rotating surface cleaner designed for gas pressure washers. A 14-inch version is available for electric models to speed up cleaning as well. Both new accessories have an integrated detergent tank to apply and quickly deep clean large areas, while controlling overspray to protect walls and flower beds.

Before tackling any outside clean-up project with a pressure washer, Briggs & Stratton urges owners to review the operator safety section in the operator’s manual.
