Do You Need A Commercial Power Washer?
If you own a small commercial business property, then you know how difficult it is to actually keep the property clean. No doubt you have cleaning people on staff, who spend quite a bit of time doing all the scrubbing and the sweeping and the other things that are necessary in order to maintain the property.
Over the years you probably had to deal with hard caked-on grime, oil, or other industrial waste. Even if your commercial property is a retail outlet of some sort, such as a grocery store or vape shop of some kind, you no doubt have had to deal with gum stuck on sidewalks, and things of that nature.
A good old-fashioned power washer can do wonders in this situation. However, you may be tempted to use a normal, retail version of a power washer. Any given normal power washer is certainly a great tool to help keep your place clean, but it may not be the right tool. It may be much better to look into getting a commercial power washer.
What’s The Difference?
Of course, this begs the question of what, precisely, is the difference between a retail power washer and a commercial power washer. At first glance, it may appear to be nothing more than the cost of the tool, as well as the number of features that the tool possesses.
However, the number of features is a major part of the difference. The thing that not everyone is aware of is that not every power washer nozzle is suited for cleaning every type of surface. While the basic, generic power washer nozzle will certainly knock off dirt and grime, that doesn’t mean it’s very good for precision tasks. There will be many times when you try to clean a particular surface and require a precise hand. The normal spray may not cut through the mess quite as well.
Not only that, but a commercial power washer can often use cleaning fluids other than water. In general, one doesn’t need much more than the stream of water in order to get things clean with a power washer. However, power washers aren’t just used to knock dirt and grime off of the sides of walls and sidewalks. There may be a number of different things that have to be cleaned up using power washers.
In addition to all of that, there’s also the fact that commercial power washers tend to be able to spray water and other fluids at a higher pressure. This higher pressure it means that the liquid can cut through things much more readily. When the only thing you’re cleaning is dirt, it’s much easier to cut through it. After all, it is fairly susceptible to water. That is not the case with every other thing. In addition, there are a number of types of oils and other waste that are quite water resistant. This means that you might have to spray at a much, much higher pressure in order to even make a dent.
