For most of us, a pressure washer is not a necessity. Of course, a cell phone isn’t a necessity either…but now that we’ve discovered how useful they can be, we can’t imagine giving them up. A pressure washer is much the same.
Clean is good. People clean more often when it’s easier. That’s where pressure washers shine.
Cold water pressure washers are in every big box store, and you’re probably wondering why you need to get a hot water machine. One reason is environmental. Cold water pressure washers often require harsh chemicals in order to clean effectively. Hot water cleans so much better that for many applications, nothing else is needed. For particularly stubborn cleaning, an environmentally friendly soap can be used. Hot water is a good choice.
The other reason is oil. It’s in the air, because of vehicles driving down your street. It sticks to everything. Dirt sticks to it. If your hands were dirty and greasy, would you try to clean them with cold water? You use hot soapy water for a reason – it works. The majority of your cleaning probably involves cutting oil and grease, so hot water just makes sense.
