Choosing a high pressure cleaner
High pressure cleaners are one and the same thing as high pressure cleaners or high pressure cleaners and basically fall into two categories. Gas pressure cleaners would obviously need fuel to run and would normally have a manual train start. These are mostly mobile machines that can do big jobs like cleaning your decks, driveway, sidewalk, and even siding your house. Then we have electric pressure washers that are commonly used to give furniture, grills, patios or vehicles their original size. Although electrical units are less powerful than gas models, they are also cheaper, quieter, lighter, and come to life with the push of a button.
When it comes to performance, consider the washing machine's PSI (pounds per square inch) and GPM (gallons per minute) pressure. It can be assumed that the higher the ratings, the better and faster the cleaning. Cheap pressure washers can do just as well despite their lower performance. The key is to adapt PSI and GPM to the respective project. For example, light to medium jobs would require 1,300 to 2,800 PSI at 2-3 GPM, while heavy and particularly heavy cleaning would require a PSI range of 2,800 and higher at 3-4 GPM. Commercial models used to remove graffiti, paint, and wash a two-story house usually start at 3,100 PSI.
The choice between a cold or hot water pressure washer depends on your application. Chilled water devices are ideal for DIY because they are more compact and portable and require less maintenance to break down dirt. On the other hand, hot water pressure washers are perfect for removing grease and oil stains, but are generally more expensive and complex to use.
In terms of features, it would be convenient if the pressure washer were equipped with a set of attachments such as interchangeable and rotating nozzles, as well as adjustable rods that would add versatility. It's also worth buying one with an integrated detergent tank so that you don't have to carry a separate container around. And to ensure safe operation, it is important that you understand the instruction manual and wear something that protects your ears and eyes.
