4 Unconventional Ways to Use a Pressure Washer

We all know the standard uses for commercial pressure washers. We have already covered how you can use a pressure washer to clean surfaces such as wood and the concrete on your driveway. 

However, there are a lot of; shall we say unconventional uses for pressure washers. As a premium supplier of industrial pressure washers from Derbyshire, we enjoy covering all elements of the cleaning process. 

This is why we would like to showcase some of the most unique and unusual ways you can use your pressure washer. 

Cleaning Fish

We thought we might want to start with one of the most unusual uses right off the bat.

Any experienced fisherman, or fisherwoman, would happily inform you that cleaning a fish properly and quickly can present many problems. 

Using a pressure washer is now becoming one of the most effective ways of cleaning fish. It might not surprise you to know that this method is also by far the quickest method of cleaning fish. If  you happen to try this technique, you will have your fish ready to cook in no time. 

Branch Removal

If you have a large garden which is populated with trees and shrubs, you will probably have come across the pain of branches loosening but not coming off. This can present many problems, one of which is the fact that they are very hard or impossible to reach and pull off. 

Luckily, one handy way of removing the previously mentioned annoying branches is by using your high powered washer to push it off. 

When using this admittedly unconventional method, you will want to pay particular attention to safety. 

If you are using the washer to remove any loose hanging branches, we would recommend you always have someone else present and always ensure that there is ample space for branches to fall clear of objects or other people. 

Peeling Potatoes

If you grow impatient when performing the mundane task of peeling your spuds ready for your Sunday dinner, we have just the technique for you.

Take your bag of potatoes, toss them into a crate and pressure wash them until the excess skin peels off. 

Creating Street Art

Creating street art with your pressure washer requires a number of different occurrences. This includes having a street that is particularly dirty and expert handling the washer who also happens to have a certain flair for art and creativity. 

If you do happen to have these however, you are ideally positioned to get to work on creating the next street art masterpiece.

Pressure Washers Can Be Your New Year Resolution

If you are looking to improve the cleanliness of your premises in 2021, have you considered investing in a pressure washer from Britclean?

While we offer units to purchase, including renowned brands such as Nilfisk and Karcher, we also offer a number of washers for hire too.

For this blog, we will give you a handful of reasons to consider pressure washing as your essential cleaning method.

4 Reasons to Choose Pressure Washers

Pressure Washing is Simple – Conventional cleaning tasks will usually take up a lot of time, energy and elbow grease. When it comes to pressure washing, there is no need to scrub and strain to unsettle stubborn debris. Our units let you maintain a strong upright posture and direct the force of the water towards the unwelcome stains. The setup is quite simple and involves about as many steps as finding soap, sponges and filling a bucket. Simply affix a water hose to the unit and either plug it in or add fuel to its power source to start cleaning.

Save Time – Compared to regular cleaning methods, pressure washing is so much more thorough when disposing of germs and dirt. When you buy or hire a pressure washer, you are cutting out the need to source a number of materials that do a similar job; but to a lesser extent. Pressure washing also saves time and allows you to simply point a nozzle towards hard-to-reach areas.

Boost Your Curb Appeal – When businesses are looking to impress customers and visitors, they understand that you only get a first impression once. Having a clean and welcoming entrance will boost your curb appeal. This can mean cleaning your driveway, pathways or simply cleaning unattractive mildew from your business’ exterior. Pressure washers can take care of all of this in no time, saving your time and energy for more pressing issues.

Support the Environment – Pressure washing is easy on the environment, unlike some other cleaning methods. Heavy-duty cleaning using chemical cleaners can have a detrimental impact on the environment. Alternatively, pressure washers work by blasting water at high velocity and the power of the water stream can lift stains and mildew without using harmful chemicals.

A pressure washer also uses less water when compared to a regular garden hose doing the same job. The amount of force applied by a washer also means you will use less water, but with added cleaning power due to the different pressure options.

Pressure Washers Improve 4x4s Curb Appeal

Pressure washing outdoor areas plus appliances such as your car or 4×4 will half your cleaning job and save you valuable time and effort.

Britclean is the leading supplier of jet washers and industrial vacuums across Staffordshire and the nearby counties. For this post, we will explain how pressure washers are the best cleaning solution for your vehicles and home exteriors.

Save Time With Pressure Washing

It will take longer to clean the exterior of your house, from the walls to the driveway simply by hand. Without a pressure washer, you will more than likely spend hours on your knees or pushing a broom around, trying to clean up the accumulated dirt clinging to surfaces from around the front and back of your garden. However, with a jet washer in hand, you will be able to easily lift away all that grime in as little as an hour. Using an extendable reach attachment you also won’t need to use a ladder.

A regular pressure wash helps prevent mould and mildew too, as you will be clearing away the dirt and bacteria which causes it in the first place. If you live in an area with heavy rainfall, you could experience horrible patches of unsightly grime which is particularly hard to remove by hand. Blitzing it with a pressure washer regularly will help prevent future outbreaks.

Are Pressure Washers Safe to Use on Vehicles?

Pressure washers can clean your car or 4X4 without the worry of damaging its paintwork. This means fewer hours spent using a bucket and sponge.

Our cars can get extremely dirty on long journeys, where dirt is flicked up from the road, or from winter weather which can cover vehicles in debris. If you are a bit of an off-roader and enjoy taking trails in your 4X4, this is also the best cleaning solution.

Just think about how much money you will save on car washes when using a jet washer?

Common Signs Your Pressure Washer Needs Repairing

Here at Britclean, we offer a number of well-known pressure washer brands such as Karcher, Ehrle, Nilfisk plus our own brand.

While we pride ourselves on the quality of our product range, we also understand that sometimes washers will require repairs and maintenance to prolong their life span.

Don’t worry if you’ve never used a pressure washer before, as we have drawn up a handy guide to identifying the most common problems that require repairs or new parts.

Three Pressure Washer Issues We Can Help With

Water Leaking – Water leaking from your pump is one of the most common issues with pressure washers, which is usually caused by either broken seals, loose bolts when the pump is assembled or a broken rubber washer.
For all of these issues, we would recommend contacting Britclean to take a look at your pressure washer to identify the issues and get them fixed in no time.

Electric Pressure Washer Problems – If your machine refuses to start this could be because of a faulty motor or the electric outlet is faulty. During use, if the motor stops running this could be caused by the low voltage which requires checking the voltage in the motor’s specified range.

Oil Leak from the Pump – Oil leaks from the pump are typically caused by loose bolts or fittings which simply need to be checked and tightened. Alternatively, damaged parts such as seals and pistons will have to be disassembled, checked clean and replaced (if required).

Excessive Noise – If your pressure washer is making more noise than usual, this could be because the water intake is blocked, which requires it be checked over, cleaned and replaced, if faulty. A lack of oil in the engine simply requires a checkup and adding a sufficient amount of oil, whereas if there is not enough oil in the pump this will require a more thorough disassembly and an oil check.

Saving Money with Commercial Pressure Washer Hire in Derbyshire

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.
