Pressure Washing Company in Philadelphia

At our commercial pressure washing company in  Philadelphia, we have found that a hot water pressure washer is often used. However, it is often more beneficial to use cold water depending on the surface. Discover the pros and cons of using hot or cold water during your pressure washing project.

Benefits Of Using Cold Water For Pressure Washing

1. Water Temperature Affects How Long Your Pressure Washer Lasts

Energy output from your water pressure washer unit is significantly reduced when the temperature of the water becomes too cold. Coldwater requires more energy, which results in more wear and tears on your pressure washer unit.

2. Hot Water Causes Chemical Damage To Some Surfaces

Some surfaces are sensitive to hot temperatures. Rock, brick and stone, and plastics may crack or change color when exposed to hot water for an extended period.

3. Hot Water Is More Likely To Cause Surface Staining

When pressure washing surfaces that are sensitive to heat, such as wood, moisture can lead to discoloration of the wood. If your surface is prone to staining, it is better to use cold water to pressure wash it.

4. Lower Lather

Hot water can produce more lather than cold water, making it easier to clean large surfaces. However, lathering is not necessary when washing small areas.

Benefits Of Using Hot Water For Pressure Washing

1. Easier to Clean

Energy output from your water pressure washer unit is significantly reduced when the temperature of the water becomes too cold. Coldwater requires more energy, which results in more wear and tears on your pressure washer unit.

2. Hot Water Leaves a Cleaner Surface

Even if you could get a second use out of the pressure washer, hot water would leave the surface cleaner than when cold water is used at our pressure washing company in Philadelphia.

3. Hot Water Is A Quick Way To Get A Certain Amount Of Cleaning Done

You can use hot water to clean quickly and cheaply on surfaces such as chrome, glass, metal, and plastic.

4. Hot Water Is More Efficient When You Are Dealing With Larger Areas

Hot water pressure washers have a more powerful motor for this reason so that cleaning large surfaces becomes more efficient.

5. Hot Water Uses Fewer Chemicals

The spray assembly in a hot water pressure washer uses much less chemical than the same spray assembly in cold pressure washer line when used on hard surfaces such as concrete and brick or when dealing with wood.
