1. This Imperial Castle Got A Much Needed Power Wash
This beautiful imperial castle in Poznan, Poland, hasn't been cleaned in a very long time. After being power washed, it looked brand new, and most people didn't realize that the bricks were supposed to be white instead of a dingy brown color.
We can only imagine how long that took, but it definitely looks less like an eyesore now. It's almost as if the surroundings look happier now that the building is brighter and restored to its former glory. We also like how they changed the signage to fit the building better.
2. When You Finally Get Around To Cleaning Because There Is Nothing Else To Do
When you have run out of activities to try, you might as well start cleaning the house, right? This person was in quarantine with his roommates, and they convinced themselves that the sink was permanently stained for the longest time. However, they just hadn't been bored enough to put in the effort until now.
We don't know why they would let their sink reach that level of dirtiness, but at least they finally got around to cleaning it. That must have taken a lot of elbow grease and strong cleaning chemicals to get the sink back to its original state. It is much more aesthetically pleasing now.
3. They Power Washed The Patio And Built A Fun Outdoor Space
The backyard was always a project they said they would eventually get to. However, months passed, and it started to look worse and worse. One day, the homeowner finally got the motivation to power wash the patio, build a canopy, and clean up all the junk.
Instead of wasted space, they now have a cute place to entertain guests and hangout when it's warm outside. This looks like a nice place to relax after a long day with a glass of wine. It doesn't even seem like the same backyard, and it's an incredible transformation.
4. Beautiful Tiles Were Hiding Under All That Dirt
These people went from having green-ish brown, moss-covered stones to a beautiful mix of pavers with unique patterns and vibrant colors. It is also much safer to walk on clean tiles because the dirt in the first picture can become very slippery when it rains and cause injuries.
Their backyard probably looks so much brighter and inviting now that the walkway is fresh and new again. We would love to watch this cleaning process because it is probably so satisfying to see the dirt melt away under the pressure of the power washer.
5. A Building Janitor In France Gave People In Lockdown Something To Smile About
While cleaning up the walkways during the lockdown, a building janitor decided to give residents something to smile about, so he created a cat with the power washer, and now people have something fun to look at. This view would put a smile on anyone's face.
The only problem we are having with this photo is figuring out what the actual color of the cleaned tiles is. Are they supposed to be white, or are they actually grey? It is quite confusing to think about, but no matter what the case is, we love the idea.
6. Mary Had A Little Lamb And He Seriously Needed A Bath
The nursery rhyme goes, "Mary had a little lamb whose fleece was white as snow," but this sheep got really dirty. It was in serious need of a bath, and when it went to the groomer, it came out looking like a fluffy white cloud. Now its fleece really is as white as snow.
Usually, when you see sheep, they are that brown color before they get sheered, but this one must be special because it is getting pampered and cleaned instead of sheered. Maybe they keep this little cutie as a pet rather than a source for wool.
7. A Fancy Power Washed Fence So They Will Always Have A View Of The Skyline
Not everyone is lucky enough to live in a place where they have a view of the city skyline. However, when life gives you lemons, make lemonade like this person did. Instead of cleaning the entire fence, they created the city skyline with the power washer, and now they have a beautiful view from their home.
Instead of moving, you just need to power wash a picture into your fence or the brick wall outside your window, and you can be transported anywhere in the world. It's like traveling, but cheaper and safer during these challenging times.
8. Picasso Would Be Proud Of This Power Wash Job
Why clean the entire sidewalk when you could just create a piece of art on it? Unlike chalk, this one will actually last for a while because it is going to take some time for the clean parts to get dirty again. It's like Picasso himself came back to life to create sidewalk art.
We don't know how this person had so much control over the power washer, but we are thoroughly impressed by their artistic skills. It's also incredible how dirty the sidewalk was. Although this art is fantastic, we would love to see the entire sidewalk cleaned because the dirt is getting to us.
9. Picked Up An Old Park Bench On The Side Of The Road And Look How Dirty It Was
When you go to the park and sit at the picnic tables, do you ever think about how dirty the seats and tables are? We weren't thinking about it before, but after seeing the before and after cleaning job on this table, we won't be able to sit at the park without wondering what color the bench should really be.
It's a good thing this man had a power washer at home since he picked this old park bench up from the side of the road, and you can only guess how many people have sat on this, and what kind of food particles and germs they left behind.
10. It Looks Like A New Set Of Stairs
This staircase was in desperate need of a good cleaning, and after it was power washed, it looked like they put in a new deck. You can definitely appreciate the unique design now that it isn't covered with dirt and moss. While it is cool, there is a lot of wasted deck space because of this design.
If only they added one more set of stairs to create a deck-agon. If they ever have a karaoke night in their backyard, this would be the perfect stage for the performer. As children, we would have had a lot of fun pretending there was an audience worshiping us at the bottom of the stairs.
11. Who Knew There Was A Basketball Court Under There?
If the basketball hoop weren't in the before photo, we never would have known that there was supposed to be a basketball court underneath all this dirt and debris. It doesn't seem like anyone had used it for years, and it was highly neglected.
After they cleaned it up, gave it a good power wash, and possibly waxed the court, it looks much nicer. The next thing they need to power wash is that fence because it seems like it could use some love. We hope they start using the court now that it looks brand new.
12. Wife Asked Her Husband To Clean The Driveway, She Never Specified What Part
When you give a man a power washer, you never know what he will accomplish with it. This guy's wife asked him to clean the driveway, but she never specified that she wanted the entire thing cleaned, so he created a cool design and left it for his wife to see.
He probably had so much fun making these flames, and they are impressively precise. We have to give him credit for those skills because it seems like it would be challenging to have that much control with the power washer. We would love to see his wife's reaction to this.
13. After Power Washing The Patio, He Had To Share It With His "Friends" Online
This man got really excited to wash the back patio, and it looks shiny and new now that it is clean. When his wife asked why he was taking photos, he told her that his "friends" on the internet loved looking at power washing photos. Her response was, "they aren't your friends."
Don't you love how they made a step under the pet door to match the other step? Now their pets can feel like they have their own patio just like the humans, and it is just as clean. It could be the lighting in the "after" photo, but the house looks much brighter now that the patio is clean.
14. Halfway Through And They Remembered The Bricks Were Different Colors
Have you ever looked at something that was so dirty and forgot what the original color was supposed to be? It seems like that might have been the case for these people because they let the bricks get so muddy that you couldn't even see the different colors.
When they started cleaning, they probably said, "Were those always multi-colored?" It is such a nice surprise, and it adds a cool element to the backyard. That was the idea for the bricks when they were first installed, and now they can actually serve their purpose.
15. To All The Farmers Out There...This One's For You
If you are a farmer, tractor enthusiast, or even just someone who loves to look at clean vehicles, this one is for you. Tractors get dirty easily because people drive them through mud, dust, dirt, and everything in between. Therefore, this could have been just a week's worth of mess that needed cleaning.
After they power washed all the dirt off, it looks like a new tractor. They could have purchased a new one, and we wouldn't know the difference because it is that clean. Before they know it, they will have to clean it again, but that must be such a satisfying feeling.
16. Now People Won't Slip Walking Down The Stairs
Whenever it rained, people would be warned to take the stairs slowly because the moss makes them extra slippery. They were long overdue for a good cleaning, and now they look like a brand new set of stairs. It is also much easier to walk up and down them without worrying about falling.
It's photos like these that make us all question if we need a power washer. It just seems like it would be so satisfying to clean every inch of our homes with one. Is there a power washer for our lives? Because that could use some serious cleaning as well.
17. They Didn't Even Know The Tiles Were Different Colors
After many years of neglecting to clean the patio and continuously saying, "I'll get to it next week," these people called in the professionals to bring their pavers back to life. We can all agree that this is like night and day because it doesn't even look like the same backyard.
The people didn't even remember that the bricks were supposed to be different colors. They say cleanliness is next to godliness, and when they cleaned these tiles, they came face to face with the big man upstairs.
18. She Got A Power Washer A Mother's Day Gift And She Is More Than Happy
For mother's day, this woman was given a power washer from her husband and she didn't know what to think about that, considering she had never asked for one. At first, she wasn't thrilled with the gift, but she changed her mind when she realized all the things she could clean.
She started with the wooden bench that hadn't been touched for years in their backyard, and as soon as she saw the results, it changed her mindset about the power washer. We think her husband got it for her because he didn't want to be stuck doing the cleaning.
19. Have You Ever Seen Something More Satisfying
We don't know what they were doing here before, but it looks like a crime scene with blood on the stairs before they power washed it away. The house looks like it got a new paint job, and it's all shiny and new. How do people let their homes get to this state?
The before picture is something you would see in a horror movie, and then it is like a brand new house after they washed the dirt away. We hope they don't let it get that dirty again because that is no way to live. Sure, it might be in their backyard, but they should still want to keep it clean.
20. 16 Years Of Neglect vs. 3200 PSI Pressure Wash
Some people don't have the energy or the means to keep their homes looking like new. With outside elements such as weather and people coming in and out all the time, it is challenging to keep up with the cleaning process. However, after 16 years of neglect, this front walkway met its match.
The homeowners took a 3200 PSI pressure washer to the caked-on dirt and it went from dirty and uninviting to fresh, new, and welcoming. It is now a home that seems more approachable and like a place you would want to visit.
21. Got This Table For Free Today And Now It Looks Like New
When you find a cool piece of furniture on the side of the road, it is exciting because it is not only free, but it is something other people might not have. However, you don't know what it was used for or who used it, so it has to go through a disinfectant process before bringing it into your home.
This person had the right idea by power washing it, and they found that it wasn't actually a green table, but a beautifully crafted natural wood. All they need to do is reseal it, and they have a brand new table that didn't cost them a penny. What could be better than that?
22. Pressure Washing Business Is Going Well
Has anyone ever told you that you can't do something? Here's our advice: stop listening to them and go for your dreams. When this person mentioned that they wanted to start a pressure washing business, they were told it was a dumb idea, but who's laughing now?
People told this person there was no money in the business, and four years later, his business is thriving. Why wouldn't this be a good idea? People need the outside of their homes cleaned, and not everyone wants to invest in a power washer.
23. We See Your Stairs And Raise You An Entire Cargo Ship
You might have been in awe of all the stairs and patios that were being cleaned, but let's take it up a level. Instead of cleaning something small, these people are tackling the job of power washing an entire cargo ship.
Imagine how many days this took to complete. It does bother us that they left those random squares, but they must have a good reason for that, but it would be so much more satisfying if they did it in perfect and clean sections.
24. Someone Did This For Their Grandpa And We Think He Is Going To Be Very Happy
When you do nice things for your family, it doesn't have to be such grand gestures; it could be something simple like helping them with their yard work. This person saw how dirty their grandpa's fence and wall were, so he brought over his power washer and cleaned it up.
His grandpa probably felt so appreciated, and it is just a small way to show how much you love the person. It also gives us internet people some satisfaction knowing how clean their bricks are now.
25. Today The Fence, Tomorrow The World
It might just be another fence that went from dirty to clean but picture it. Someone comes out with their pressure washer, and all the dirt melts away in perfect lines as they go section by section. It would be incredibly pleasing to watch someone do that.
They might just be cleaning fences today, but imagine what else they could clean up with a power washer and dedication. Who knows, the streets could be rid of germs and dirt if they took the time to clean them. That's what street cleaners are for, but they can't achieve something like this.
26. Now They Can Finally Eat Outside Again
After a long winter, the weather finally started to warm up, and this family was excited to use eat outside. However, the winter weather took a toll on the table, and it needed elbow grease to get back to its original state.
You can now see through the table again, and it is a place someone would actually want to eat. The girl told her dad that people on the internet love to look at this kind of stuff, so he made sure to capture the drastic before and after photos.
27. They Moved Into A New Rental And This Was The First Project On Their List
When you move into a new home, whether it's a rental or not, the first thing most people do is clean everything before they start bringing in their stuff. When this person got a new rental, the first project on their list was to clean up the stairs with their power washer.
We would like to personally thank this person for creating the most perfect line between the part they cleaned and the half that was still dirty. Something tells us these are the kind of people that always get their entire security deposit back because the place looks better than when they got the keys.
28. They Have A Long Way To Go, But They Are Making Progress
You can clearly see where these people stopped for the day, but they have made so much progress already. We don't know how long this bridge is, but when they finish the job, it will look brand new. It seems like it would actually be a lot of fun to have this job.
It almost seems like, by the time they get to the end, they will have to start all over again depending on how much foot traffic this bridge gets. However, they could just wait till a busy season is over and clean it again.
29. The Chairs Have Been Sitting Outside For 30 Years, And They Finally Got Washed
When things sit outside for a long time, they deal with elements such as weather, sun, and the general wear and tear over the years. After 30 years of sitting outside, these chairs needed some love to restore them to their former glory.
Someone took a power washer to them, and it looks like they got a fresh coat of wood stain. Now they look brand new, and it shows that these were built to last regardless of the weather or other elements. They are also a timeless design if you are looking for outdoor furniture.
30. Wife Wanted To Buy A New Playhouse, Husband Wanted To Use His Power Washer
When his wife saw someone selling this playhouse, she had to have it, and her husband didn't think it was necessary until he had a fun idea. He realized this gave him a reason to whip out his power washer, so they agreed to purchase it.
It was a clever solution that made them both happy, and now her playhouse is a beautiful addition to their backyard. Plus, she can now restore it and make it look brand new without buying yet another new thing.
31. The Wall Wasn't Cleaned For 40 Years
In very rare cases, the before photo might actually look better than the after photo, and we think this is one of those times. After 40 years, these people finally cleaned the patio wall, but we think it looked better before with the accents of green.
Maybe it's the design that makes it look outdated or the color of the bricks, but the moss made it seem older and more aesthetically pleasing. Regardless if we like it or not, these people must have had fun seeing four decades of dirt melt away to reveal the original brick color.
32. Their Clothes Smelled Like Swampy Ocean But That Was A Price They Were Willing To Pay
While it might look like this person just bought a new rope, we would like to believe that they actually spent the time cleaning each section of this. It might have smelled horrible, but they powered through and brought it back to its original color.
Who knew that these ropes weren't brown? We have never seen one of these outside of the water, and it is always covered in algae and sea stuff. We don't know why they cleaned it because it is just going to go back in the water and get dirty again.
33. It's Almost As If They Replaced Their Old Stairs
While some people might argue that they like the stones darker, it is still surprising that they were actually supposed to be this light color. It got so clean that the sun came back out to shine on them and show off how sparkly they are now. That golden hour light is truly magical.
We wonder if these people forgot what color their steps were and regret cleaning them because they liked the dark slate better. This might make them change their minds and replace their stars with dark stones because they don't like the beige anymore.
34. When You Just Assume The Tiles Are Supposed To Be Those Colors
At some point, people become so used to the dirt color that they forget what something is actually supposed to look like. These people were so used to the dark tiles, that they were actually shocked to discover the slate was supposed to be different colors.
They forgot the tiles were all different types of stones and colors because it had been so long since the patio was washed. We aren't surprised that they forgot because the dark tiles look so natural that you would never think to clean them anyway.
35. You Can See All The Details Again
The old walkway had become so overgrown and caked with dirt that you couldn't even see the details in the bricks anymore. Besides power washing the bricks, they also cut away the overgrown weeds and grass that ruined the design to bring the path back to life.
Now they just have to make sure they replace the mortar, so the bricks don't shift or crack over time now that they washed away the stuff holding them together. This is probably one of the most drastic transformations we have seen so far.
36. Old Worn Out Tractor Looks Like It Was Just Purchased
This tractor looked like it had seen its final days because it was so dirty and worn out looking. However, anyone who has ever worked with or owned a tractor will know that it was just in need of a car was with a powerful pressure washer.
After getting all the dirt and debris off, the tractor looks brand new. We would never know that it was dirty and disgusting a few moments before if they hadn't put the pictures next to each other. This tractor is ready to take on the fields once again.
37. They Should Leave It Like That
Well, would you look at that; the tennis court was actually supposed to be more than one color besides brown. After washing one side of the court, they couldn't believe how dirty it had gotten, and now it looked like a brand new tennis court.
It would be funny if they left it like that because it is like the professional versus the amateur side. However, that would give anyone with OCD a small aneurysm. Now they just need to fix that giant crack in the court, and it will look so much better.
38. The Most Joy-Filled 45 Minutes Of This Person's Entire Life
There is nothing more exciting to someone who loves cleaning than seeing the labor of their work pay off. This person spent 45 minutes cleaning this small section of bricks, and it was time well spent with their beloved pressure washer.
Now they can spend time filling in the cracks with cement so the pavers don't move and the moss can't grow back. We can imagine the person's face with a giant smile on it because they were so satisfied with their work, and it looks much cleaner now.
39. It Might Take A Few Days, But It Is So Worth It
While walking past this building in Tehran, this person noticed that someone was in the process of cleaning it and restoring the bricks to their former glory. At first glance, we thought it was the building's shadow, but it was actually just dirt.
The only thing we wish they did differently was cleaning it in straight sections because it is not as satisfying when they start jumping around from section to section. It's hard work, but the results will make the building look so much better.
40. If Only They Remembered To Pick Up That One Leaf
When these people moved into a new house, the previous owner left her power washer behind. After nine months of living there, they finally decided to pick it up and start cleaning their backyard. When you are stuck at home with nothing else to do, you might as well work on your home.
We don't know what this structure is supposed to be, but it looks much nicer now that it is cleaned. However, that one leaf is really bothering us. Maybe we are just neat freaks, but we would have moved that leaf for the photo to show how clean it was.
41. "Yucky" Is Right
They wrote exactly what we were all thinking. People probably didn't even realize this wood wasn't supposed to be black. It is incredible to see how light the wood was when it was first installed and how nasty it got over time.
The people who see this once it is clean will think they installed new wood. We also have to give this person credit for their ability to write so neatly with a power washer. This wood could not have gotten worse, and now it is finally getting the bath it needed.
42. They Played Tetris with The Paving Slabs
While power washing the pavement, this person decided to have a little fun with their cleaning and started a game of Tetris. Unfortunately, they couldn't finish the game because the tiles don't move, but it did make for a good photo.
When they finish cleaning the rest of the squares, they can pretend they won the game by clearing all of the bricks. It really doesn't take much to entertain people these days when we have all been stuck at home for a year.
43. The Neighbor Knows Where His Property Line Ends
You know your neighbors are petty when they power wash their wall and immediately stop at the end of their property line, leaving the rest of the wall dirty. It seems like it wouldn't have taken much more effort to continue and clean the rest of the wall.
We can imagine that these neighbors got in an argument about something silly, so the person did this on purpose just to piss off their neighbor even more. It just seems like common courtesy to wash the entire thing if you are already out there.
