What is Pressure Washing?
Pressure washing involves using a high pressure mechanical sprayer to remove loose paint, mold, grime, dust, mud, and dirt from surfaces and objects such as buildings, vehicles, and concrete road surfaces. Our power wash machines produce pressures from 750 to 30,000 psi (5 to 200 MPa) or more if needed.
In its extreme high pressure form, water is used in many industrial cleaning applications for the removal of surface layers as well as dust-free cutting of some metals and concrete. For exterior applications, gas or propane powered pressure washers provide enhanced mobility not available in electric models, as they do not require use in proximity to an electrical outlet.
High-pressure water at medium pressure, in combination with special chemicals, can also aid in the removal of such paint as graffiti. This process (especially when the water is hot) is used as a quick rinser of the softened graffiti or paint. Sometimes people use a pressurized mixture of air/sand or water/sand to blast off the surface of the area, thus etching the surface and therefore making it extremely difficult for anyone to ever use high-pressure cleaning as a follow-up process.
This process is also referred to as Hydro-jet cleaning, a method of cleaning with high pressure streams of water to remove build up and debris in tanks and lines.
