Exterior Cleaning with a Hot Water Pressure Washer

The exterior of a building is the first things people will notice when they approach a business. Make sure that first impression is a good one by keeping the exterior clean. Focusing your attention on keeping the exterior of your buildings in shape is easier when you’re using a hot water pressure washer. Below, we’re sharing tips to get the job done right.

What Pressure Washers Can Do

Using a pressure washer makes the job of cleaning a building exterior faster and more effective. The tools work by heating the water with a boiler to between 100 - 140°C. The water is pumped through the machine and out of a nozzle with enough pressure to blast dirt and debris off of your building’s surface. 

Cleaning Your Building

Prep work is an important step when cleaning any building. You’ll need to put some time in before you wash, to make your job easier. Remove anything that might get in your way, and cover plants to protect them from chemical runoff. 

Pretreating some areas can help to make hot water pressure washer more effective when you start washing. Use commercial cleaners to scrub stains, built up dirt, and mildew affected areas before you start using your machine. 

When you start washing, start from the top of the building and work your way down. Always spray at an angle, rather than straight on, and move from side to side as you spray. Spend extra time on areas that have substances caked on and spots that are stained. 

Why Hot Water?

Does cold water remove dirt? Sure. Does it do the job as well as hot water? Not necessarily. Hot water breaks down substances and makes it easier to remove them from surfaces. When it comes to the exterior of buildings, from parking lots to commercial buildings, hot water can more easily remove everything from peeling paint to oil stains. Choosing a hot water pressure washer means using a more effective cleaning tool that will keep your buildings looking their best over time.

Other Uses for Your Pressure Washer

Hot water pressure washers are a smart investment. In addition to being a powerful tool for cleaning the walls of your building, they can be used in a variety of ways to keep the entire area around your business clean. Use your water to spray down your parking lot to remove debris. Clean the sidewalk leading up to your build to prevent injuries and improve curb appeal.
