There is a substantial difference between hot water pressure washers and cold water pressure washers when it comes to both the quality of cleaning and the price. If you are a homeowner and your power washer is going to be used for residential projects such as the driveway, house, deck, patio then a cold-water pressure washer is the way to go. Not only is a cold water pressure washer going to be an affordable option but is also going to be the most convenient. If you have a stubborn cleaning job most of the time a cleaning detergent can be used in the aid of cleaning. We offer detergents for any different cleaning application so you are going to want to make sure that you purchase the correct one or you might run into problems. One thing that people ask a lot is can I run hot water through my cold water pressure washer, simply the answer is no! I will go into further detail of that some other time. On the other hand hot water pressure washers do have their benefit over cold-water machines for specific cleaning applications.
If you are trying to clean oil, grease, road film, tar or any other sticky, nasty substance then there is no other option other than hot water. The way I look at it is, would you put a greasy pan into a dishwasher that only used cold water and expect it to come clean? Well, of course not, so why would you expect to remove a stubborn substance like grease with a cold water pressure washer? Not only is a hot water pressure washer going to clean better but it is also going to clean faster. If you are a business owner and are paying someone to power wash equipment for you more than twice a week it is understandable that hot water is the way to go. All of the hot water pressure washers that we sell are very efficient and can easily pay themselves off over a short period of time. Once you use a hot water pressure washer there is no going back to cold.
