Just like Spring Cleaning, Fall Cleaning is a thing! It’s great to clean up outside and get ready for winter to settle in. I recently used the Gilmour Hose Power Jet Wand for porch clean up and it’s SO good! We live on a gravel driveway, and overall it’s just dusty and dirty out at our house. I wanted to get all the dust and dirt and cobwebs off of our porches before winter so that the dirt didn’t sit there all winter long.
We don’t have a pressure washer, so I was eager to try out the Power Jet Wand – I was definitely impressed! It did a GREAT job and by using it we didn’t need an expensive power washer. It just hooks to your regular garden hose and turns that water stream into a power jet.
In action!! You can see how it’s taking the dirt right off our our cement porches – very impressive.
I aimed at starting at the back of the porch and working my way to the front, back and forth across the concrete.
The Power Jet definitely has power! Here’s an attempt to show you how far it can shoot a stream of water, clear into our field! But it got lost in the photo, so you’ll just have to believe me 😉
I also used it to take the built-up dust and dirt from the whole summer off of our cedar siding. Again, I started at the top and worked my way down, back and forth across the planks.
We still have lots of house projects planned for outside (think landscaping, large porch lights, even a circle driveway), but for now at least I can clean off of the outside as it is and have it looking nice. In other building-related news, this summer my dad helped my son build a treehouse, and it turned out pretty awesome – almost finished!! Made from various leftover building supplies and salvaged scrap pieces from remodels, etc. So fun, right?!
What kind of projects are you tackling for Fall Cleaning?? I bet the Gilmour Hose Power Jet Wand is a tool you’ll want!
Did you ever do a house tour blog post after you completed the house? I loved watching the house come together, such a beautiful house and property.

I keep thinking I need to “when we’re done” and I never think we’re done – but maybe we never will be ,ha!

I ran across a pin that brings me to your blog… it’s a bathroom vanity I wanted to ask you about. Could you email me if you happen to see this please. Thank you so much!

Hi Cassie! That was just a feature post, it isn’t my bathroom, sorry!

We got this in the spring and it really helped get the winter uch off the side of the house and overhangs.
I think I need this hose, right now. Our cement porch calls for this tool to get cleaned! 😉
Thank you for sharing!
I love the fact that you got such amazing results from this pressure wand, I wasn’t expecting anything near that good without a power washer driving additional pressure.
I’ve found a gift for a friend who keeps borrowing my pressure washer!
