For Those Tough, Hard to Clean Surfaces
Pressure washing and power washing are two similar cleaning methods that both use a high-pressure mechanical sprayer to clean hard exterior surfaces with large areas like concrete sidewalks, asphalt driveways and parking areas, business entry ways and restaurant drive thru areas. It is typically used to remove loose paint, mold, grime, dust, mud, and dirt from flat exterior surfaces. There are certain surfaces that should be avoided when pressure washing and power washing. These methods are not good for roofing, laminar sandstone, stained wood or anything delicate. It is not recommended to apply these on other exterior surfaces unless performed by a professional like 501 Pressure Washing. If you are looking to clean more delicate surfaces, take a look into soft washing.
What is the difference between pressure washing and power washing?
Pressure washing uses cold or tap water while power washing uses hot water or sometimes steam and has a higher velocity than pressure washing. Pressure washing is good for regular cleaning of hard surfaces that need removal of moss, weeds and crusted gunk and dirt. It is good on concrete, brick and masonry and is more likely used on household hard exterior surfaces. On the other hand, power washing is used for more heavy-duty cleaning for a more serious state of dirt, grime, or grease. It prevents bacteria like molds and mildew from re-growing and it is also used for salt, hardened gum and rust stains on buildings. Power washing is typically used for cleaning extremely dirty areas that can withstand heat and pressure like dumpster areas and business entry ways.
These methods are cheap, efficient, and effective. However, it is quite dangerous—you can injure yourself or somebody with the force coming out of the sprayer. It is highly advised to hire a professional 501 Pressure Washing if you wish to clean using these methods.
