Hot vs. Cold: Industrial Pressure Washers

Posted on: June 1st, 2019 by McHenry PCS

When it comes to using a pressure washing for industrial cleaning jobs, there are a variety of ways to determine the best pressure washer for the job. The first distinguishing factor to help determine the right machine is whether you will be using hot or cold water while cleaning.

Hot and cold water pressure washers perform differently and are used for different types of cleaning. Initial purchase costs and operating costs are different as well. All the more reason to select the right type of unit for the cleaning task you have. Consider the following when looking to purchase an industrial pressure washer.

Hot Water Pressure Washers

If grease, oil, or reacting agents are the reason behind your need for a pressure washer, a hot water pressure washer is the machine for the job. Hot water increases cleaning capabilities and speeds up the cleaning process dramatically. We have been telling customers for years that there is no substitution for hot water.

Cold water cannot break through the surface of grease, oil, and grime and won’t provide a thorough clean. In these applications, using hot water can assist you in cleaning up to 50% faster.

Hot water pressure washers provide a great clean and can often lessen or even eliminate the need for detergents and soaps. McHenry PCS line of detergents and soaps can enhance your cleaning but why not save when possible.

Cold Water Industrial Pressure Washers

Cold water pressure washers work great for everyday dirt and mud cleaning. From sidewalks to siding, cold water pressure washers have effective cleaning capabilities and are available in gas, electric and diesel models. Cold water units are normally smaller in size and lighter in weight of the two types. Our inventory of powerful, cold water pressure washing equipment makes cleaning mud or dirt a quick job.

McHenry Pressure Cleaning has more than 1,000 unique pressure washers to choose from. Depending on the scale of cleaning projects and the frequency of use of the machine, McHenry Pressure Cleaning will help you choose the right machine for the job.
