Default How to suit up to pressure wash a dang horse stall?

So I'm about to clean and paint a bunch of horse stalls and I got this big old 4200 psi pressure washer to start cleaning them out with. I'd rather not get many years worth of who knows what splashing back in my eyes etc so I'm wondering what kind of face protection is best for this kind of job.

I'd like use a whole face respirator w/ cartridges to keep everything covered but I'm thinking I'd be continually wiping the face shield off b/c of the splash back. What's my best option for some face protection here?

seems like thats going to make a heck of a mess...they dont have a tractor? May be best to try and break up everything and shovel it out..pressure washing all that will be messy, but if thats what you choose, i think they sell suits at lowes...we used one when we were spraying heavy weed killer around the shop area.

No Man! He just wants to clean the walls and floor so it will take paint! They've already been cleaned of **** and bedding, you fool!

I think you're going to need a complete environmental hazard suit with fresh air hood and deal with the visor getting covered with stuff. Is it cement or wood?

Wears a helmet with a face shield, but doesnt use the face shield, because??? One piece of dirt is all it takes. One piece.

This is funny... Shovel, sweep, then rinse with a garden hose spray nozzle. Pressure washing is overkill...

Thanks for all the advice but just to be clear all the crap and hay will be removed and I'll just be washing the walls down for painting. Still a daunting task considering whatevers soaked in there over the years.

They're wood walls.

In my opinion wood walls are going to require pressure washing and some sort of fungicide as well. That's why I'm saying you need a total coverage suit. Whatever agent you use must be dried completely and safe for animals. The paint should completely seal the wood.

I would recommend a respirator or at least a basic dust mask. Always shocks me how disgusting my mucus is after working in dusty/dirty conditions

You mean like when you blow your nose and the Kleenex is black? In my job as a toolmaker, I had to precision grind pieces of carbon for electrodes to use in EDM machining. Even though we used a dust mask, some of that crap got thru them anyway. When we took the goggles and mask off, we looked like a raccoon!
