Power Washing vs. Pressure Washing—Which is Best For Me?
Oftentimes, the terms “pressure washing” and “power washing” are used interchangeably. However, there are fundamental differences between the two. While they both serve the same purpose of using highly pressurized water to help remove dirt and other materials from hard surfaces, the key differences can help one determine which service is best suited for them.
Water Pressure. In terms of water pressure, a pressure washer and a power washer both use similar amounts of pressure. How much pressure depends on the type of machine (a household unit won’t offer as much power as an industrial machine).
Type of Machine. There is one key element that differentiates a power washer from a pressure washer: a heating element. Both machines create a powerful stream of high-pressure water; however, a power washer actually heats up the water in addition to providing highly pressurized water. This may seem like a small difference, but it actually makes a big difference when it comes to the way that each type of machine is used.
What is Power Washing? Power washing uses a high-pressure stream of very hot water to clean up dirt and materials from outdoor surfaces. The combination of high pressure and temperature make it better for removing all of those truly stuck on materials from surfaces.
Power washing is great for removing materials on all types of outdoor surfaces such as patios, decks, driveways, sidewalks, garage floors. It is a great option for cleaning up:
- Chewing Gum
- Grease Stains
- Weeds and Moss (the hot water can kill them and stop them from growing back)
- Any heavily saturated surface or a surface with a lot of dirt
Basically, power washing is the more heavy duty option. The hot water combined with the pressure can be great for cleaning up very tough stains and very dirty areas.
What is Pressure Washing? Pressure washing is, more often than not, what people will use at their home. It uses the same high-pressure water blast as power washing but doesn’t use heated water. This regular temperature water still gets rid of dirt but doesn’t perform as well against moss, mold, or other tough/stuck on substances.
For most commercial jobs, power washing is the way to go. It’s best for concrete and other hard surfaces, since the force of hot water can do damage to other surfaces. For homeowners, pressure washing is ideal since it is less harsh on surfaces, making it ideal for brick, concrete, or siding. Pressure washers are also great for when your deck needs a quick clean.
However, the method you decide to go with depends entirely on the job at hand. Depending on the surface you are washing and how dirty that surface is, you can decide between pressure and power washing.
Whichever type of cleaning job you decide to do, it’s always best to hire a professional. If you don’t know how to use either type of machine, you could end up damaging the surface you’re working on. Trust the experts at ALAC Services to get the job done right. Contact ALAC Services Today!
