Pressure cleaning, also known as pressure washing, is the application of high-force water pressure to remove stubborn dirt, loose paint, grit, mud, food particles, chewing gum, and leaves from items and structures including houses, cars and concrete sidewalks and walkways. The pressure cleaning equipment used has an electric pressure cleaning nozzle, a hose and a water-based cleaning solution. It usually comes with rubber chemical tanks that hold the cleaning solution. The pressure cleaning equipment has a pressure tank that expands to hold the solution and a drain line.
- HVAC System: For a property owner, it is important to ensure that the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system of the building are working properly. When high-pressure cleaning services are used, the system becomes efficient. The process involves spraying the cleaning solution in a cleaning line through a hose, which is connected to the HVAC system. High-pressure cleaning services reduce the time taken for a thorough cleaning process, thereby increasing the efficiency of the system.
- Soft Washing: Low-pressure cleaning solutions can be used on a variety of surfaces, including tile, wood, plastic, cardboard and cement. Pressure washing machines provide complete coverage of an area and do not harm plants or vegetation. They also do not put stress on the foundation of the building. The chemicals used are environmentally friendly and do not contain ammonia or chlorine. Using the soft washing process helps to reduce allergens, dirt and grease.
- Commercial Pressure Washing Services: Most industries that require pressure cleaning find that the commercial versions of these services deliver effective results. This involves spraying a fine mist over the surface to be cleaned and then driving the pressure cleaning nozzle at high pressure over the surface, generating a spray that gets deep into the surface and sucks all the dirt and grime from it. After using the machine a few times, you will start to see how effective the machine is. The chemicals used are safe and environmentally friendly, as they do not contain chlorination or ammonia.
- Dirt Cleaning: Sometimes dirt, grease and grime accumulate on your pressure cleaning equipment. To remove the dirt, you need to use a pressure washer with a rotating head. The rotating head sucks up all the dirt and grime and releases it into a collection container. The pressure cleaning nozzle also gets the dirt and grime trapped between its teeth. Once the dirt and grime are removed, they can be disposed of safely.
One of the major benefits of using high-pressure cleaning services is that the process removes more soil than is required to fill a garbage can. You can dispose of the detergent and dirt safely. Many companies use detergents such as sodium hypochlorite, which is safe for the environment and also good for cleaning. Other detergents are not so safe to use, especially when mixed with petroleum-based products.
As mentioned earlier, many of these commercial pressure cleaning services have a high-pressure jetting system. This can cause harm to people who work nearby. There can be an explosion in the case of an improperly operated machine. Also, if you are going to use detergents to clean the area, make sure you buy a brand that is suitable for the line marking on your surfaces.
Commercial pressure cleaning services are available only for commercial premises. For residential areas, you can use hot or cold water to clean, as both have different chemical compositions. Hot or cold water is also a bit messier to apply line marking chemicals on, compared to the other types of chemicals being used in hot water pressure cleaning systems. Lastly, it is important to know whether you will be able to clean all the surfaces with your chosen chemical. You might need to use more chemicals if the surfaces you are cleaning are difficult to reach.
