Five Steps of Cleaning your Tractor

Investing in a high-quality pressure washer is a worthwhile investment for anyone working in agriculture, as it makes light work of the worst muck and dirt accumulated on your vehicle.
Here are five essential steps to making your tractor look brand new –

1. Rinse down – Firstly rinse off the dirt using your industrial pressure washer, plus if you choose a rainy day the dirt will be softened and easier to remove.
2. Cleaning Agent -Now add some snow foam to all areas of your vehicle and thoroughly wash down using your pressure washer.
3. Clear Your Cab Out – Cabs are notorious for hosting dust and grime. This will require a vacuuming then using an all-purpose cleaning solution to use on mats, plastic surfaces, control switches and levers. Then you can add gloss with an interior polish.
4. Touch Up Work – Add a protective finish to surfaces such as windows, mirrors, lights and even mudguards and fuel tanks to prevent a faded appearance
5. Protective Finish – Repeated treatment will help maintain your paintwork and a good topcoat top of sealer will lessen the impact of UV rays which can make exterior finishes fade over time.

How Does Hose Length Affect My Pressure Washer?

You may be wondering how the length of your hose affects the amount of water pressure that comes out of your spray gun, but we will explain this in due course.
The longer the hose is, the less the water pressure is going to be at the end of it but remember this only applies to a certain length of hose.

Therefore, in theory, there are only about 5 pounds per square inch of pressure lost for every 100 feet of your pressure washer hose, which will affect you more the longer your hose is.
An industrial pressure washer can produce around 2,500 PSU, meaning you would need a hose of over 16km in length in order for the water pressure coming out of it to be close to 0 PSI. This isn’t a real big issue to worry about, as your pressure washer is never going to be long enough for this to be a substantial problem.

Factors to Consider When Purchasing a Pressure Washer Hose

Before you purchase a pressure washer, here are a couple of factors to consider –

PSI Rating – This is perhaps the most important thing to look out for when buying a pressure washer hose as you will need a hose that can handle the amount of pressure your washer produces without bursting.
Material – Some materials are better than others for pressure washer hoses, so be sure to take a look at what the hose is made of. Also, keep in mind the difference between hoses for hot or cold pressure washing.

The Advantages of Hot Water Pressure Washers for Cleaning

Where cleaning is required on a commercial and industrial scale, hot water and high pressure hold the most benefits. The most difficult dirt can be blasted away to leave equipment and buildings cleaned to a high standard.

Reasons to use hot water pressure washers include:

  1. The higher temperature of the water means that less pressure is needed.
  2. Hot water often requires less detergent in the cleaning process which has environmental benefits.
  3. Cleaning with hot water is more efficient and saves time. Karcher claim that this can deliver time savings of up to 35% more efficiency. Depending upon the type of dirt this can be up to 50% more efficient.
  4. High temperature cleaning with water and steam dislodge and emulsify difficult materials like grease and oil.
  5. In situations where hygiene is an important factor, such as the food industry, hot water kills more bacteria and cleans deeper.

Saving Money with Commercial Pressure Washer Hire in Derbyshire

Using a commercial pressure washer brand such as Nilfisk, Karcher or Ehrle is a great money saver when cleaning your outdoor space.
Commercial pressure washer hire in Derbyshire and the surrounding counties are one of the services we offer here at Britclean.
In our latest blog, we are going to share five ways that pressure washers will save you money in your garden.

5 Items You Can Clean Using a Commercial Pressure Washer

It may feel like the easy option to throw away something that has got dirty outside over a long period of time. Our range of commercial pressure washers can help the following items be returned to their former glories with one wash –

Outdoor Cushions – Outdoor cushions can get buggy and grubby from time to time but with a quick spray of your pressure washer it will remove any accumulated green gunge and instantly brighten colours. We would also advise testing on a small area of the cushion with the lowest setting first, so it doesn’t rip the fabric.
Plastic Play Equipment – Summer is here, and the kids will definitely want to play outside more on their plastic play equipment such as slides. They can get pretty dirty in a short amount of time, but pressure washers get into all the nooks and crannies that a regular hose cannot.
Outdoor Rugs – If you’ve got a social space in your back garden, perhaps on decking, then outdoor rugs help to make this area cosier. Rugs do suffer from trapped moisture which helps them to accumulate dirt quickly. Start this task on a sunny day (if possible) and you can leave your rugs out to dry in the sunshine.
Plastic Furniture – Stacking chairs and tables can be transformed into like-new condition within a few minutes using your commercial pressure washer.
Wooden Furniture – Wood is a soft and porous material so start cleaning on your pressure washers lowest setting then inspect the wood in case it requires sanding. We mentioned earlier about decking; which is also easily cleaned using a pressure washer.

Whatever you choose to clean with your commercial pressure washer please take all the necessary safety precautions and always start with its lowest setting.

Essential Questions About Industrial Pressure Washer Hire in Derbyshire

Industrial pressure washer hire in Derbyshire from Britclean will give you a cleaning product that will deal with the toughest surfaces.

From cleaning mud from your patio, dried on-dirt from your car or grease from a barbeque; using a pressure washer is a great time saver.
If you’ve never used a pressure washer before we are going to answer some frequently answer questions we often get asked.

How do Industrial Pressure Washers Work?

Pressure washers work by delivering a robust, concentrated stream of water which removes more dirt, quicker than a scrubbing brush.
If you regularly host garden parties hiring an industrial pressure washer is a must for all areas of your garden and outdoor living space.

What Type of Pressure Washer Do I Need?

The amount of pressure the model can deliver is a key consideration, as the more pressure you’ve got, the more power you can blast directly at the dirt.
The pressure of every washer is measured in bars with a maximum of 120 bars of pressure ideal for patios, fences and dirty cars. If you require heavy-duty cleaning, we would recommend using a pressure washer with above 120 bars.

Britclean has the widest range of industrial pressure washers including well-known brands such as Karcher, Nilfisk, Ehrle and our own home brand.

Lances and Nozzles

The majority of pressure washers come with one lance, a long tube with a nozzle at the end. Some machines come with a variable pressure lance that allows you to twist the nozzle at the end that alters the spray (much the same as a hosepipe).

The Rise of Cordless Models

Cordless models are becoming increasingly popular. They tend to run on battery power, have lower maximum pressure and feature an internal water tank.
These sort of washers are best suited to smaller jobs such as gardens or cleaning small areas.

The Many Features of Industrial Pressure Washers in Shropshire

Industrial pressure washers in Shropshire from Britclean have plenty of unique features that can be utilised for numerous cleaning tasks.
Pressure washers deliver a powerful concentrated jet of water that removes dirt more efficiently than a brush and uses less water than a garden hose.
Using a pump to create a high-pressure flow of water the washer dislodges dirt more quickly and effectively.

How Industrial Pressure Washers in Shropshire Work

Here we are going to look at the common features of the majority of industrial pressure washers and how they work.

Body – The plastic housing contains the motor and the pump, with larger models giving a robust cleaning experience.
Washer Hose – Typically starting at 3 metres, hoses can extend up to 10m in bigger pressure washers which makes it easier move around without moving the unit as you go. This can be especially handy if you’re using a jet washer to clean your car.
The more powerful the washer, the wide and thicker the hose needs to be to prevent it bursting under the pressure of the water.
Trigger and Handle – When the motor is on the water will only flow from the nozzle when you squeeze the trigger. The majority of jet washers will automatically turn off when the trigger is released.
Lances and Nozzles – The lance is a long plastic tube which connects the trigger and handle of your pressure washer to the nozzle. This creates your spray jet and means that you don’t have to stoop over to hold the spray close to the object you’re cleaning.
