The Usefulness of Pressure Washers
When it comes to the toughest cleaning jobs, the best tool to use is one of the many pressure washers that are available today. Simply connect a hose to the machine, plug it in or start the engine, and water is sprayed from the attached hose and wand at incredible velocity and pressure. A garden hose simply cannot compete.
Pressure washers can be used for a variety of tasks. A model with lower pressure can be used to safely and quickly clean a car, including the undercarriage. When a deck, patio, or walkway becomes excessively dirty, these machines will make them look spotless much quicker than a standard garden hose. Removing dirt from lawnmowers and other outdoor tools can be essential in prolonging the tool’s life, and pressure washers make the job much easier. Other uses include cleaning vinyl siding, patio furniture, trash cans, and even gutters. For the harder jobs, most machines can be used with detergents.
In the hands of professionals, high-powered pressure washers take on even more difficult tasks. Painters often use the machines to strip paint from the exterior of a house, before adding a fresh coat. Plumbers add specialized attachments to pressure washers that allow them to unclog a drain or sewer line quickly and easily, with nothing more than high pressure. Around a mechanic’s shop, the systems can be used for cleaning an oil spill off asphalt or for removing grease from engines or undercarriages. In cities, they are often used to remove graffiti from buildings, by adding particles of sand to the water stream.
There are many different pressure washers available to both the homeowner and the professional. Electric models are the least expensive type, and they can conquer most household jobs. Higher-pressure versions can even be used professionally. On the upper end of the price range are the gasoline-powered units. They are far more portable, and they offer the highest amount of pressure available. Typically, these pressure washers are intended for professional users, though they can have uses around the house, as well. Choosing the right model from the array of pressure washers really comes down to budget available and the tasks that it will be expected to perform.
