Power pressure washers are water jet cleaners that could become 50 times more powerful than your garden hose for cleaning various types of indoor and outdoor surfaces like sidings, driveways, patios, decks, deck furniture, grills, and even cars. They are the perfect helper to the busy homemaker for cleaning the house and its surroundings.
Power Pressure washers have become increasingly popular among homeowners due to their unparalleled cleaning efficiency. However a word of caution when using the water jet cleaner as they can be hazardous when mishandled. Keep children safely away whenever you are cleaning as the powerful jets of water could accidentally sear the skin. Follow safety instructions carefully on the manual provided by manufacturers. Many such machines are fitted with safety features to reduce pressure buildup.
Most general home outdoor cleaning like washing patios, siding, driveways, decks, deck furniture with a mid range water jet cleaner with PSI of 2,500 or less would suffice. Higher powered gas driven machines would of course give you both the convenience and better cleaning efficiency, with the added benefit of being able to use it throughout the daily for long washes. Understanding PSI would help you to do better cleaning, PSI literally means cleaning efficiency with the higher pounds per square inch the stronger the pressure force. Hence the greater the psi, the better the cleaning efficiency. GPM means gallons per minute of water consumption and the balanced combination of PSI and GPM would give your surfaces a good wash.
Some machines come with a number of changeable nozzles to vary the pressure power. However, here is a good tip if you are using a water jet cleaner which does not have interchanging nozzles. For lighter cleaning, stand further away from the surface to be cleaned, or tilt your spray head at a larger angle into a fan like shape so as not to damage more delicate surfaces. Other higher end models and brands provide telescope wands and gutter cleaners to help you clean downspouts and gutters too.
The varieties of power pressure washers are indeed countless, and you really need to know what and where you will be using them most often to decide which water jet cleaner you eventually choose. But whichever you choose, your home is set for a brand new, fresh look, for sure.
