What can I use a Pressure Washer for?

Pressure washers can be used for a variety of purposes, making it the ultimate appliance for many people. Pressure washers are diverse machines which have a lot to offer, so we’ve compiled a list of uses, so you can see how beneficial owning a pressure washer can be!

Cleaning driveways and patios

A clean driveway or patio can completely transform the way your house and garden looks, as dirt and weeds build up over time, making your home look neglected and old.

Pressure washers can quickly and easily help you maintain your driveway and patio, particularly working wonders for small, hard to reach gaps between tiles.

Cleaning BBQ grills

This one may be something you hadn’t thought of before, but after a long, hot summer, you may have built up a substantial amount of grease and charcoal in your BBQ grill. Many people have the long and arduous job of cleaning the entire thing by hand, however a pressure washer can easily remove any build-up of dirt from your BBQ instantly, leaving a superb finish.

This method of cleaning will be more environmentally friendly, as it will use less water (than if you were hand washing) and won’t need any soap – which can create a run-off that may damage your surrounding plants and grass.

Cleaning garden tools and lawn mowers

Anything used in the garden is bound to get very dirty very quickly, as well as dragging dirt into the place you store them. In order to keep your shed or utility clean, you’ll have to keep your gardening tools and lawn mower clean.

A quick blast with the pressure washer will keep your possessions in the best shape possible, therefore making it easier to store them.

Cleaning vehicles

Washing your car is a tiresome, boring process that has to be done by almost everyone who owns a vehicle (unless you want to pay for someone else to do it). But a pressure washer makes cleaning your car much more exciting, as you watch the dirt simply fall away.

This method shaves hours off the chore and uses less water than a hose pipe would.

Cleaning fences and wooden decking

Wood can quickly become dirty and discoloured, especially when exposed to the weather. Overtime, your fences and wooden decking may start to look like they need replacing, but this may not be the case.

A rapid once-over with a pressure washer may restore it back to its original look, making your fences and decking look brand new!

Cleaning outdoor furniture

Outdoor furniture is constantly exposed to harsh weather, leaving them looking particularly worn and rough. No one wants to sit on and use dirty looking furniture, so removing any grime and dirt will help revive your furniture’s appearance and maintain its durability.

Hand washing your outdoor furniture will take forever, as well as being impossible to restore its natural look. A pressure washer will easily remove any grime or dirt, making your old outdoor furniture look like a brand new set!

With a massive range of different hot pressure washers, and cold pressure washers, with different specialities, we can help you find the perfect pressure washer for all your needs.
