The workhorse of just about every tough cleaning job, industrial pressure washers are considered as one of the most useful pieces of equipment anyone can own. In fact, whoever you are or whatever you do, there is a tough cleaning job that can be made a whole lot easier with the help of an industrial quality pressure washer. A piece of equipment that can strip meat off a bone and cut through grime in seconds, before you buy one and start spraying, read these 2 helpful tips on how to choose the right one for your tough cleaning needs.

 

#1 What Kind of Work Do You Need It For

Selecting the right pressure washer can be pretty simple, but first you will need to decide on the kind of work you’ll need it for. Do you need it to remove dried grass clippings, bubblegum, mud, mildew, or grime? Once you’ve established what you need it for, then you can decide on the minimum psi needed to clean the surface. So what is PSI? PSI is the pressure required to break the chemical bond between the surface and the stain – the stronger the bond, the more pressure is required.

While low-pressure washers start at 750-1 500psi and are for cleaning garden furniture, tools, motorbikes and rubbish bins, medium pressure machines range between 1 500 to 3 000psi and are for cleaning gutters, vehicles and boats, industrial heavy-duty pressure washers produce more than 3 000psi and are used for cleaning concrete, decking, patios, driveways, farm equipment and stripping old paint off walls.

 

#2 Decide Between Gas, Electric or Petrol

Now that you have a better idea of the psi you require, it’s now time to choose between gas, electric or petrol. While petrol industrial pressure washers are renowned for being much more powerful and durable than electric washers, they are also far more portable and offer higher pressures and flow rates for larger outdoor cleaning jobs. However, if you plan on using your washer for outdoor jobs, gas is going to be a much better choice. Also keep in mind that electric washers are much quieter, smaller and cheaper, so if your intended use is for indoor work, then choose an electric washer.
