Commercial cleaning equipment specialist Steamaster Australia lists out a few pointers on choosing between hot water pressure washers and cold water pressure washers for any cleaning application.
It is important to select the right type of pressure washer for specific cleaning jobs. Cold pressure washers differ from hot pressure washers in terms of cleaning capability, cost and portability.
Cold water pressure washers for instance, are lighter and easier to transport. Hot water pressure washers may weigh more due to the heating components. These pressure cleaners use heated water to handle particularly difficult cleaning jobs.
Cold water pressure washers are significantly lighter than hot water pressure washers for increased mobility and easy transport. Hot water pressure washing equipment produces high temperatures that blast away stubborn dirt, grease and grime almost instantly.
Hot water pressure washers perform better in jobs that involve the removal of significant amounts of grease or oil. But some cold water pressure washers can also tackle equally demanding and challenging commercial and industrial applications with the addition of green chemicals and detergents.
Cost is a major factor in selecting pressure washers but it is also important to consider the cleaning requirements before opting for the cheaper model. Cold water pressure washers are generally less expensive than hot water models.
