Pressure Washing and Steam Cleaning are two of the most effective ways to clean the exterior of buildings and property. Both processes combine the use of chemicals and a high or low pressure blast of hot water to eliminate dirt, grime, grease, oil and all forms of stains that attach to your walls, floors, garage, driveway, and even on your roof! Pressure washing is a method of cleaning that involves the use of a mechanical sprayer that operates on high-pressure water to clean out dirt and stains from concrete surfaces as well as on pavers and stone.The sprayer is similar to a garden hose with a nozzle that can increase the pressure of the outflow of water. It, however, uses it’s own power to force high-dynamic pressure.
A pressure washer is either electric or gas powered and is great for both domestic and industrial cleaning applications. It is a very powerful tool. The water pressure near the nozzle is so powerful that when not used carefully, can strip the flesh right out from the bone. In some industries, it is even used to cut through metals and concrete!
This is the reason why it is never advisable to perform pressure washing on your own without seeking professional help. The cleaning process can propel objects at great velocities and can even break through the surface being cleaned. Only a professional who has sufficient experience in pressure washing is able to clean your roof, your pavers, or even your pool with the necessary care to keep it safe from scaring or breakage.
Like pressure washing, steam cleaning is a deep cleaning process that involves the use of pressure washers. Pressure washers for steam cleaning, however, require higher temperatures and are used for heavy duty cleaning jobs.
Steam cleaning is great for cleaning heavy equipment, trash areas, bricks and tiles. For industrial and commercial use, it is excellent for flushing out grease and oil, for disinfecting, sterilizing, dissolving resins, clearing away chemicals and degassing.
When steam cleaning is employed to clean, it effectively dislodges dirt and grime that are grounded in the substrate. It utilizes a mixture of hot water and/or a cleaning agent, which through high-pressure jets allow the solution to permeate through and loosen grime.
Steam cleaning for commercial purposes always provides excellent results, particularly in for food and chemical plants where bacteria and harmful substances require thorough elimination. This method optimizes a cleaning system, which gives a degree of cleanliness required by industry standards.
Using steam cleaners are generally safe. Probably the most common complaint from the workload is simple lack of good visibility, due to steam clouds brought about by high temperatures. It is advisable that when operating a steam cleaner to always direct the steam away from yourself. If you’re uncomfortable or feel unsafe doing the job on your own, you can always get professional help.
