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.

Your Guide to Using Industrial Pressure Washers Safely

Before using industrial pressure washers for the first time it’s important to know how to use the equipment properly and safely.
Different kinds of pressure washers work best for a variety of tasks so speaking to industry experts like Britclean will help you make an informed decision.

All users should fully understand the manufacturer’s instructions before using and ensure hoses are connected securely.

Safety Suggestions for Industrial Pressure Washers

Here are some essential safety tips to keep you safe when using pressure washers –

• Do not place your fingers near the outlet at any time as the pressure can be extremely dangerous
• Once you’ve chosen the correct tip to use test it out on an inconspicuous area to determine the best distance from the surface for cleaning
• Avoid ladders and working at height as the kickback can easily cause you to lose your balance and fall
• Be aware of your surroundings making sure you check for potential hazard before starting to use the pressure washer. This could include pets, children and other obstacles such as slippery and uneven surfaces
• Water is a conductor of electricity so never spray an electrical outlet as this will give you an electric shock
• Wear protective equipment to protect from the flying debris and the high-pressure spray. We would recommend using boots, gloves, waterproof trousers, safety glasses and hearing protection

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.

Karcher Pressure Washers in Derbyshire

Karcher Pressure Washers in Derbyshire for Cleaning Gutters

Gutters can be one of the hardest areas of your home to clean – unless you’re using one of our Karcher Pressure Washers!

Here at Britclean, have hundreds of hot and cold Karcher pressure washers in Derbyshire, using patented nozzle technology that will save you money on energy bills using up to 50% less water than conventional cleaning methods.

Tips for Cleaning with Karcher Pressure Washers in Derbyshire

  1. Tough stains on your gutters will require some detergent for a thorough clean, and before you soap, the surfaces make sure you soak everything with clean water. This prevents damage to the surrounding foliage when rinsing away large pieces of dirt.Start with a low-pressure nozzle for your first rinse so you don’t damage foliage and propel dirt and debris into the soffits. Also, make sure you rinse the outside of your gutters clean too.
  1. Fill your detergent tank with a cleaning solution and if you’re using a concentrated detergent be sure to dilute it using the instructions on the container. Begin with applying the detergent to the soffits and the outside of your gutters. Don’t face the soffits directly, instead of aiming ahead of yourself and a little to the side.
  2. Once the soffits and outside of the gutters are covered with detergent let the dirt and stains come loose, then you can start spraying both areas using your Karcher Pressure Washer at the same area you began spraying the detergent, to begin with. Some spots may be a little more stubborn so take more time spraying them than others to ensure a balanced clean for your gutters.
  1. Once you’ve finished using the high-pressure option, switch back to the low-pressure nozzle and spray clean water to rinse away any remaining detergent.
  2. Start near a downspout and spray away from it and progress down the length of the gutter and with enough pressure the water will force the debris out of the gutter. Just be wary of trying to force too much debris down in one go, as it could become clogged.

There is also a safety element in using a pressure washer as you can clean your gutters with your feet planted on the ground, with no need for a ladder.
