What is pressure washing?
Pressure washing uses a either an electric or gasoline powered motor driving a pump to spray water through a high pressure hose.
It is good for removing dirt, mildew, mold, paint, caked on mud, grease, oil, graffiti and other grime from various surfaces.
In order for the pressure washer to work effectively it must be connected to an adequate water supply, lack of enough water to the machine can damage the equipment.
Sparkly Clean Pressure Washing in Maryland uses the highest quality equipment available and also brings their own water tank (ensuring adequate water supply) to provide the most effective cleaning possible.
For some applications it is necessary to use specific cleaning agents (detergent solutions) to successfully remove the surface grime.
The pressure washing unit introduces the cleaning solution into the water stream to effectively clean the required surface.
It is important to use a reputable pressure washing company in Md. that only uses the highest quality cleaning agents and knows which solutions to use for each job.
Sparkly Clean Pressure Washing only uses the top-of-the-line detergents that are also safe for the environment.
If you are thinking about either purchasing or renting a pressure washer to do the job yourself, make sure to read the instructions carefully.
It is best to first test the machine on a surface that you cannot harm.
Pressure washing machines can be very hazardous and have enough pressure to strip your skin off of your body.
Make sure to wear safety glasses and take all of the necessary precautions.
If you would rather leave it to the professionals because you don’t want to risk injury or don’t have the time, just call Sparkly Clean Pressure Washing for an estimate.
Cold Water or Hot Water?
Most electric and low-grade gasoline powered pressure washers that you can readily buy at your local hardware store only use cold water.
Cold water is good for a lot of applications, but on some jobs, hot water will do a much more effective cleaning of the required surface.
Hot water pressure washing is especially good on grease and oil stained surfaces.
If you have a surface that needs power washing makes sure to call a pressure washing company that offers both cold and hot water cleaning.
That way they can recommend which one would be most beneficial for your specific job.
Sparkly Clean Pressure Washing offers both hot and cold water cleaning to give you the best clean possible.
Electric or Gas Pressure Washer?
If you just have a small job around your house sometimes you can get away with an electric pressure washer.
The other advantage of an electric pressure washer is if for some reason you have to pressure wash something indoors in a non-ventilated area, they do not emit toxic exhaust and are fairly quiet.
The drawbacks of electric pressure washers are that you have to be in close proximity to a power source and they are not as powerful as gas powered pressure washers.
Therefore, they do not do as effective of a job cleaning the surface and removing the dirt and grime that has built up over time.
This could result in either not being able to fully clean the surface or having to spend a very long time constantly going over and over the surface for many hours to see if it will eventually do the job correctly.
On the other hand, gas powered pressure washers are more mobile (you do not have to worry about being close to an electrical outlet), and can get a job done faster and more effectively using higher pressure.
