Best Pressure Washers

People put a lot of time and energy into cleaning their cars, boats, RV’s and even home exteriors. Stop spending hours every weekend spraying and scrubbing these large-scale items. Invest in a good quality pressure washer to make the job quicker and easier than you ever imagined.

Choosing the best pressure washer for your needs requires knowing a few things. The first thing to ask yourself when looking for the best pressure washing equipment is:

  1. What am I going to be using my new pressure washer for? Will you be cleaning your car; windows, awnings, decks, patios, vinyl siding? Knowing how the pressure washer will be utilized can help you choose the very best pressure washer model available.
  2. What types of chemical will I be using? Certain pressure washers are designed to handle certain materials and chemicals. If you will be putting anything but water and standard cleaning chemicals into your pressure washer, be sure to check the manufacturer’s guidelines for details. Otherwise you may think you are getting the best pressure washer on the market, but it will not be able to hold up to the job you have it intended for.
  3. What types oft tips and nozzles will I need? In order to use your pressure washer efficiently, you must have the correct nozzles and tips. Most machines come with interchangeable spray tips that serve two purposes: to lower the pressure and draw the detergent; and to rinse at different angles. If you’ll be doing anything other than these two jobs, be sure to get the right accessories in order to get the job done right.
  4. How much pressure will I need? More is not always best, especially when choosing the best pressure washer for the job. Some cleaning jobs require high-pressure, while others simply do not. Be sure to choose a washer that offers the water pressure you need, not necessarily what other homeowners or professionals need.

With hundreds of different types and sizes of pressure washers on the market today, it may seem impossible to choose the best pressure washer for your needs. Rest assured that there are professionals available to help you at ultimatewasher.com. A quick search of the manufacturer website can help you better understand what types of pressure washers are available, and what types of jobs they are best for handling. Next, speak with an experienced sales representative (or better yet, user); to see which models will best service your individual and unique power washing needs.

Before seeking help, however, you will need to answer these important questions:

  • What type of power source do I prefer? Most power washers run on electric, gasoline, diesel or oil power. Of course electric units must have an electric source, while the other three types use fuel tanks that can store diesel or gasoline, offering more flexibility and mobility.
  • Will I be using my power washing unit indoors or outdoors? Diesel and gasoline powered units are not intended to be used inside.
  • Do I prefer hot or cold water washing? Some units use heated water, while others do not.

Once you have answered all of these important questions, you will be in a better position to choose the absolute best pressure washer to fit your current needs.
