HOW TO PRESSURE WASHER A GARAGE


When pressure washing a garage, auto service center, or maintenance shop a hot water pressure washer is a must. These buildings are greasy, oily places, and the hot water will get deep down to eliminate stains and keep your shop looking its best. The hot water will emulsify the oil, the pressure will lift it to the surface, and the water volume will carry it away. For most shop settings an electric hot water pressure washer is ideal because you will tend not to move the pressure washer. You can fire the burners on some machines with propane or natural gas. If you have a diesel fired burner and an electric motor you will still need to operate this machine outside.

A hot pump is a option to allow you to use hot water from your hot water heater and plumbing. You can buy a cold water machine with this upgrade and put water up to 140 degrees into the pump with out causing any damage to the pump. A normal cold water pump can only handle an input water temperature of 80 degrees. Keeping your shop clean will make your customers feel more comfortable and returning to you for future services.

Before you start any inside pressure washing job keep a few things in mind. Always remove any obstructions, be aware of your surroundings (electrical sources, walls that can be damaged by water pressure, and people. If using a gas powered engine or a diesel fired burner or a combination of the two be sure to run your machine outside. A commercial grade pressure washer will give you and your shop years of service. Coupled with the right chemical such as our 503 heavy duty degreaser you can take all the work out of keeping your shop in tip top shape. Always make sure you have a route for the water to escape and not pool inside your shop. If you have low areas that do accumulate water a squeegee is a great way to remove the excess water.
