I bought this pressure washer so that I could easily clean my new deck. It does a great job of cleaning with the detergent but you must be careful of the force of the water. It took some of the finish off the wood because it was too strong. I also use this to remove green mold on the siding of my home. I didn't have to do any scrubbing at all. I always clean the windows on my house with it too. When I wash my van I use this pressure washer on the tires. It really cleans the whitewalls. This unit is very portable and easy to pull with the wheels. I would highly recommend this power washer to everyone. My neighbor has already asked to borrow it several times!
