Pressure washing or hydro jet washing is the application of high-pressure hot water jetting to remove hard-to-remove dirt, loose oil, grease, tar, grime, mud, chewing gum, ice, salt and snow from concrete surfaces and other items like buildings, vehicles and houses. It is a popular method for removing tough dirt, scale, tar, rust, pollen, molds, fungus and algae from sidewalks, driveways and parking lots. The process has many advantages over conventional methods. First, it is an economical way of getting rid of tough dirt and contamination that cannot be removed by simple scrubbing. It also provides efficient and controlled removal of tough stains and cleanliness.
There are several ways in which you can use high pressure washing to help you remove dirt and stains from your home or business. In the kitchen, it is very important to keep your sink, countertops, faucets and floor clean and free from food and grease stains and mess. Regular use of a kitchen scrub brush will do nothing as far as removing food particles is concerned. In fact, they just push the food and grease deeper into the pores of the countertop and will end up being trapped below the surface. It is highly advisable to invest in a good kitchen scrub brush for removing tough dirt, grease, mold and mildew from your kitchen and bathroom.
It is very important to protect your flooring and deck surfaces from tough stains and spills. For this purpose, a pressure washing unit with a foam cleanser attachment attached to the wand is an ideal product. You simply apply the foam onto the floor and then wash and rinse with water. If you apply the foam directly to the surface, there is a risk that it might damage the floor.
If you have hardwood or concrete flooring, you should never use a pressure washing machine on bare surfaces. This can cause a serious build-up of residue that can trap moisture within the wood, causing it to expand and swell when it dries out. To be on the safe side, it is always better to use a wood-friendly cleaning solution and a soft mop on the surfaces that you want to wash. Only after the surfaces are thoroughly dry can you start using the machine. In case of concrete, you can either use a mop and a pressure washer cleaner or a mat to ensure the floor is protected from any dirt and stain that might damage the surface.
It is not necessary to use high pressure washers on all the hard surfaces around your home. Even the tiniest spot around your home can benefit from a good old-fashioned pressure washing session. You could use the machine on your patio, deck, steps, walkways, poolside area and even near flowerbeds and trees. If you have some sort of flower or plants in your garden and you want to ensure they get the attention they deserve, then you could rent or buy an electric pressure washer to spray the area.
As you can see, there are many ways to use an electric pressure washer without the use of a high pressure washing system. All you need to do is follow these simple guidelines and get started today! You won’t regret it!
