The power washing is the heat. To clarify further, the jet wash feature in a power washing machine utilizes heated water, while the water in a pressure washer remains unheated.

The advantage of heated water from a power washer is most noticeable in challenging-to-clean areas with stubborn grime, particularly mildew, salt, and grease. The heated water makes it easier to clean surfaces – just as it does when doing dishes or washing your hands – and as such, the power washer is essentially as the more heavy-duty machine. It can more easily scrub spaces clean, and is therefore the preferred option for jobs that require a higher level of cleaning, or may begin in a more serious state of dirt, grime, or grease. It is especially advisable to use power washing on surfaces such as concrete, which can withstand the pressure without sustaining damage.

Best Uses for a Power-Washing

A pressure cleaner is the actual machine used in pressure washing. While it might seem like a niche market, the truth is that almost everyone is a potential pressure washing client. That’s because the service provided by a water pressure cleaner is far more necessary than you might originally imagine.

Think of what a pressure cleaner does – with its high-pressure water spray it is uniquely able to clean large surfaces, effectively removing dirt, dust, mud, grime, stains, salt, mold and even chewing gum. This makes an electric pressure washer perfect for cleaning:

  • Exterior facades of buildings, both residential and commercial
  • Sidewalks, stairways, walkways, patios, and driveways
  • Public spaces like stadiums, open air plazas, and parking garages
  • Cinemas with all their popcorn and soda stuck to the seats and grounds
  • Vehicles of all types, including cars, busses, trucks, and boats

In fact, using a pressure cleaner is one of the most effective ways to give a building a face-lift at a relatively low cost. It’s also one of the easiest ways to keep premises looking clean, on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.
