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.
Problems with equipment are more readily identified when the problems aren’t hiding behind grime. Repairs are easier and faster when equipment is clean. You are counting on that equipment – keep it clean.
You should also consider an AaLadin parts washer for your shop. Unlike some parts washers which require your mechanic to wash parts in an environmentally unfriendly solvent, an AaLadin parts washer does all of the work, just using hot water and soap. Let your mechanics do what they do best and not waste time manually cleaning parts.
Of course this is a primary consideration, after all, you are feeding troops. With AaLadin pressure washers you attack the sanitation issue with high heat and the chemicals that give you the advantage. With a high volume pressure washer you can also use it as a “broom” to move large volumes of waste material into drains and other collection areas.
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 and the oils you use when preparing food. 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…
