Top 10 Pressure Washer Uses


A lot of people own pressure washers and use them for a variety of purposes. They have been used for everything from cleaning car seats, air conditioner filters and window blinds to everything else you may find around the house. A September 2014 report from IBIS World estimates that the pressure washing industry employs about 182, 073 people and generates nearly $9 billion in revenue every year. The following are just some of the most common pressure washer uses;

  1. Cleaning BBQ Grills

Most people think that cleaning a BBQ grill using a pressure washer will damage the electronics make the food taste like soap. But this is not the case. When done correctly, a pressure washer can be just the thing you need to clean your BBQ grill completely. Just ensure that you detach the propane or any electrical before you begin.

2. Outdoor Furniture

Pressure washers are ideal for cleaning plastic, wood and vinyl outdoor patio furniture. It is a quick and easy way to clean your furniture and it is also quite effective.

3. Equipment Like Lawn Mowers, Mountain Bikes and Trailers  

Boats, lawnmowers, bikes and other random things you may have in our back yard like go carts, dog houses and even bird baths can be easily cleaned using a pressure washer. A lot of people even use pressure washers to clean various power equipment like tillers and chainsaws.

4. Cars and Trucks

Cars and trucks are probably the most popular items cleaned using a power washer. But most people say that even though a pressure washer works well, they still needed a solid sponge or brush to complete the cleaning process. Others say the power washer works just fine and they don’t need additional cleaning. This leads us to believe that it is all in the cleaning method.

5. Fencing

If cleaning cars and trucks using a pressure washer is popular, cleaning fences using a pressure washer is perhaps the easiest. The broad surface makes it very easy for the pressure washer to reach every part of the fence.

6. Home Exteriors

House siding and brick houses can also easily be cleaned using pressure washers. Again, the broad surface makes it very easy to clean and pressure washers are also the most practical solution since they allow you to reach even the hardest to reach areas.

7. Wood Decks

Cleaning wood decks using a pressure washer is also increasingly popular since it makes the process very easy. For effective results, use the correct nozzle (25-degree or 4-degree nozzle) and hold it at the correct distance from the surface.

8. Entrance Stairs and Walkways

Keeping the front entrance of your home clean is not just good for hygienic purposes, but also to improve the home’s appeal if you are considering selling the property. A pressure washer makes it very easy for you to easily clean such a large area with very little effort.

9. Concrete or Tile Patios

Patios are great entertainment areas especially in the summer. It is therefore not surprising that you would want to keep the space clean. It’s a good thing a pressure washer can easily help you clean even the largest of patio spaces with minimal effort.

10. Driveways and Garage Floors

Most people who use pressure washers use them to clean driveways and garage floors. In fact, most of them agree that it would be difficult and time consuming to clean such huge spaces without a pressure washer. It makes the process very easy, almost effortless.
