Pressure Cleaner Injured In Chemical Explosion

Victim Suffers Burns To Chest, Laceration To Cheek

ROYAL PALM BEACH, Fla. -- A pressure cleaner was injured after some chemicals he was mixing exploded.

The incident occurred at about 11 a.m. outside 128 Derby Lane.



Fire-rescue crews inspect the chemicals that were used at the time of the explosion.


Palm Beach County Fire-Rescue District Chief Robin Herring said the owner of Kevin's Pressure Cleaning was mixing chemicals in a 5-gallon bucket when he was injured. Herring said it was possible the man was smoking at the time.

"We don't know whether the chemicals mixed caused the reaction or the actual fumes from the chemical, plus the smoking," Herring said.

Nice post and thanks for sharing the information. Pressure washing should be fine as long as you don't use a very fine tip or get too close. Doing either will cut into the wood, damaging the surface.
