One of the most important things to consider when selecting a pressure washer is the temperature of the water that it cleans with. Pressure washers typically clean with cold, warm, or hot water depending on the model. Each of these temperatures provides a different level of cleaning power and intensity, so it is important to know what types of jobs you plan on doing with your pressure washer before selecting one.
A new feature that is becoming popular in many pressure washers is the ability to clean with wet steam. Steam pressure washers clean at much higher temperatures than hot water pressure washers, giving them the most cleaning power of any pressure washer. Because of the increased cleaning power, steam pressure washers are the most effective at cleaning dirt and grease, along with disinfecting and sanitizing surfaces.
Another benefit of the cleaning power of steam pressure washers is it allows them to clean without the use of chemicals or detergents. Although some jobs may require chemicals, a majority of the time the high temperature of the steam will be enough to complete the job.
Steam pressure washers are also more efficient than other pressure washers. With their increased cleaning power, steam pressure washers clean much faster, and require less water, power, and labor to operate.
If your pressure washing jobs require heavy-duty cleaning or you find that your current washer just isn’t cutting it, consider the additional power of a steam pressure washer.
