The Difference Between Power Washing and Pressure Washing

Pressure washing and power washing are often interchangeable terms, with both considered to be the same thing by people not familiar with the cleaning industry.

There are some differences between the two, which we are going to explore for our latest blog.

Power Washing vs. Pressure Washing

The difference between power washing and pressure washing is the heat, with the jet wash in a power washing machine using heated water whereas the water is a pressure washer isn’t heated.

The main advantage of a power washer is the heated water is more able to clear tough-to-clean spaces with grease, salt, mildew and grime. The heated water, much in the same way as doing the dishes or washing your hands, makes it easier to clean surfaces. This makes the power washer more of a heavy-duty machine.
Power washers are the smart choice for cleaning concrete, as it will not damage the surface.

Understanding Pressure Washers and their Uses

A pressure washer is equipped with a high-pressure water spray that is able to clean large surfaces, comprehensively removing dirt, dust, mud, grime, stains, salt, mold and chewing gum.
This makes a pressure washer perfect for cleaning the following areas –

  • Stairways, walkways, patios, driveways and paths
  • Exterior facade of residential and commercial buildings
  • Public spaces such as car parks
  • The seats and grounds of cinemas
  • Vehicles such as cars, buses, trucks and boats

Pressure washers are one of the most effective ways to give a building a low-cost facelift. You can also keep your premises clean on a daily, weekly or a monthly basis and get your floors looking brand new in no time. This also means you will maintain the quality of your property and retain its value.

Power Washers

Deep Cleaning Pressure Washers

Power washers can be mobile units or a stationary fixture. They can expel cold water or harness the power of hot water jet washing for challenging grime. Some use electrically powered motors while petrol or diesel fuels others. Industrial power washers like these are independent units giving you the flexibility to move around freely. This allows the operator to move around and tackle a large cleaning area systematically. Or perhaps you need to take your power washer offsite to work at other locations.
Stationary units are popular in haulage and agricultural situations where a designated cleaning area is used to wash down dirty vehicles at the end of a shift.
Britclean makes their own pressure washers but also supply brands like Karcher, Ehrle, Nilfisk, and Interpump. Custom build and reconditioned models are also available. Search our power washers today!

Top 10 Pressure Washer Do’s & Dont’s – Britclean:

When using one of our high-quality pressure washers it’s important to always make sure you know how to minimise risk and maximise the safety of yourself and those around you. Here at Britclean, we’ve compiled a short of list of “Do’s and Don’ts” to make sure your cleaning experience is as safe as possible.

Ten Tips For Pressure Washer Safety:

  1. Water and electricity rarely mix well. If you’re using an electric machine, take care to avoid getting any of the electrical sockets wet.
  2. Always be aware of your exhausts. Never obstruct the exhaust or use a device where the hot exhaust gases could do damage or have a risk of fire.
  3. On the topic of heat, make sure you cool off. If you are using a hot water machine, always make sure to cool the pressure washer down before switching it off, and never disconnect any hoses or lances until they are pressure-free and cooled down.
  4. Keep warm. In cold temperatures take care to never allow the machine to become frozen.
  5. This one may seem like common sense, but it bears repeating: never leave a pressure washer running when not in use. (Doing this will both keep you safe and stop you wasting extra electricity!)
  6. Check your vitals! At the start of each session, make sure your oil levels are adequate, that your fuel is clean and free of debris, and that any chemicals you might be using are appropriate for use with a high pressure cleaner.
  7. In the rare event that you suspect any damage to your pressure washer or its cabling, never use the machine. Get in touch with us and we will organise to have it repaired – do not attempt any self-repair.
  8. Pressure washers aren’t toys and should never be treated as such. Never point the pressure washer lance at yourself, anyone else, or an animal.
  9. Never use the machine with the water supply turned off unless getting ready to finish with the machine in order to disconnect the hoses.
  10. Always wear the correct protective equipment for your cleaning activities.

Follow these steps and stay safe. To stay up-to-date with us and receive more helpful tips, follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
