What Is Pressure Washing?

Pressure washing (also referred to as power washing) is the use of high-pressure water spray to remove loose paint, mold, grime, dust, mud, chewing gum and dirt from surfaces and objects such as buildings, vehicles, and other concrete surfaces.
The high pressure of the water helps clean tough stains and debris from various surfaces more easily and quickly. Got a tough stain? Pressure washing can clean it up.

Basically, the water is under very high pressure when applied to the surface being cleaned. That high pressure allows it to remove debris and stains that couldn’t be removed otherwise, things that are difficult to remove by hand or with other tools. Low-pressure water simply wouldn’t do the job.

Most pressure washers have 75 times the pressure of a normal garden hose.

However, some models offer gentle spray for more delicate cleaning, as well.

Pressure washers are basically half air compressor and half garden hose. They have either a gas-fueled engine or electrical powered motor, which powers a water pump. This pump then produces the high-pressure water when connected to a high pressure-rated hose. At the end of that hose, you’ll typically see something that looks like a “water gun.” When you pull the trigger, the water and air mix together and come out of the nozzle, ready to clean!
