Do you need to clean dirt and grime from an outdoor surface such as a driveway, parking lot or wooden deck quickly and efficiently? Then the best commercial cleaning equipment you can use for this is a pressure washer. Pressure washers provide constant high-pressure water that is effective to remove dirt and grime on outdoor surfaces. They are easy to set up and should the worst happen, there are plenty of replacement parts to keep your pressure washer going for longer. They use an electric or gas motor to power an onboard pump which forces water at high pressure through a nozzle. The result of this process is to create a stream of continuous pressurised water which is great to blast away accumulated build-up on surfaces such as concrete, wooden decks, driveways, and brick walls. The higher the pressure, the better the cleaning.
Whilst pressure washes have a wide variety of uses, some of the most common uses include cleaning outdoor stairs and walkways, brick exteriors, outdoor furniture, vehicles, garages, driveways, walls, and other pieces of equipment.
There are generally two types of commercial pressure washers:
-Electric power washers have a lower PSI and are suitable for light to medium jobs such as washing cars, outdoor areas, equipment, and more.
-Gas-based pressure washers average a higher PSI and are therefore suitable for more heavy-duty jobs such as paint removal, farm equipment cleaning, and so on.
We stock power washers from international brands like Nilfisk and Karcher, which are known for their high-quality and reliable range of commercial cleaning products as well as their great after-sales service and support. A common option that is sought after by many of our professional cleaner clients is an onboard detergent injector system. This feature injects detergent into the nozzle when it sprays the water thereby providing the additional power of a cleaning agent to help remove the grime as well. This helps save further cleaning time including labour, water and electricity costs.
A good quality pressure washer will make large cleaning surfaces quick and efficient. They will be fast and simple to set up and will be ready to provide a continuous flow of pressurised water in seconds. Not only do pressure washers make light work of even the toughest build-up of dirt and grime, but they also save water as well - Compared to the roughly 3,500 litres of water that can flow through a garden hose in an hour, a high-pressure washer uses just 400 to 600 litres at the same time. The saving effect is also compounded because the high water pressure will further speed up the work.
A good quality pressure washer is a must-have for outdoor cleaning situations. It will help you get the job done quickly whilst also providing a far superior clean compared to a brush and hose. Quite literally, a pressure washer can be life-changing and for this reason, it's often one of the essential pieces of cleaning equipment that can be found in any good professional cleaner's van or storeroom.
