Pressure washers, on the other hand, offer far more brute force to the cleaning arsenal, which can be incredibly beneficial on some jobs. Caked-on mud, grease and grime can be difficult to remove, but a pressure washer delivers a concentrated stream of high-velocity water, applying force and moisture to loosen and remove the most persistent dirt.
Detergent use is another advantage for pressure washers. Some cleaning jobs require specialized formulas to help ensure a complete clean. This can range from degreasers or asphalt removers to sanitizing solutions and paint removers.
Finally, pressure washers also provide additional reach, making it easier to clean in hard-to-reach places. This can be incredibly beneficial on a variety of projects, whether it’s pressure washing a tall semi trailer, spraying grime off the eaves of a roof, or cleaning the underside of a tractor. That reach also extends to penetrating power, as pressure washers can be used to break up stains and grime on concrete and other porous surfaces.
