    Got a garage canopy to clean tomorrow morning, any advice? the sides I see being straightforward, just use my long reach pressure washing pole with brush on the end, swap to nozzle to finish it off.

    But not 100% sure how to tackle underneath as it is going to be directly above me, thinking just nozzle but not sure that will be enough on its own, and not sure I can get the brush on it due to being directly above.

    Anyone else done one of these?

    I usually use a wfp to clean them not a pressure washer

    How do you go about doing underneath? just do it an angle? I won't be using high pressure but find on industrial type frontages etc long reach pole with brush on it does a really good job, just not sure about directly above.

    Depends how bad it is but I would usually wfp the underneath then go over it with micro cloths or clean it all by hand.

    I have 3 petrol washers in total but to be honest I don't like using them on stuff like that as if not careful even on low pressure can cause damage to seals, roof panels, painted surfaces etc so could totally **** the job up.

    Surely a brush head fitted on the end of that telescopic lance will be at the wrong angle to be able to use it on the outside of that garage canopy roof?

    Nah its perfect for flat sides, its underneath that is what I think will be difficult.

    I'm a big lad so don't find it much of a problem to use it weight wise.
