Pressure Washing Applications in Restaurants

Before pressure washers became standard cleaning equipment in commercial kitchens and food processing units, hygiene was a major issue. The dining areas would be spotless and gleaming, but the kitchens were often messy and unclean. Thick layers of grease, with an added layer of dust or hydrocarbon deposits, and the endless hard work of trying to scrape off the dirt summed up what happened in the kitchens after hours.

Thankfully, more advanced pressure washers have made the task of kitchen cleaning much simpler and faster. Today,heated and non-heated cleaning equipment is used for removing grime through a jet of water released at high pressure levels. Daimer® offers an array of systems for different cleaning tasks: including cold water, hot water, steam, and tri-mode pressure washing systems.

Daimer® offers cold water machines, for example, that an reach pressure levels of 7000 psi, releasing water at a flow rate of up to 9 GPM. Green cleaners mixed with non-heated water can remove much of the dry, loose dirt, such as dust or food particles that are not removed using cold water alone. For these applications, Daimer®'s hot water and steam systems offer enhanced cleaning power, however, due to the ability of high temperature to dissolve grease and other stubborn stains. While these systems do not require additional detergents, pairing them with green cleaners will enhance the speed and overall efficiency of the cleaning process. For example, utilizing Eco-Green® Ultra-Power™ Degreaser with a pressure cleaner quickly dissolves and eliminates stubborn grease deposits on kitchen floors and other surfaces.

Using a pressure washer, you can clean the exhaust system such as ducts and hoods. A weekly wash will keep floors and tiles shiny and grime free. However, the pressure level and flow rate must be considered for such applications, as high pressure levels may damage delicate surfaces and high flow rates can cause flooding if used in areas without proper drainage. Do not forget the restaurant exteriors – the porch, parking lot, and waste receptacles are places that turn dirty and smelly if not cleaned regularly using high pressure equipment

Why Pressure Washers are Ideal for Degreasing


When it comes to the degreasing, pressure washers are not only safer than most chemicals, they are more effective as well. Relying on harsh chemicals to clear up heavy grease is not only harmful for the user; it can also leave behind toxic traces, as well. Though, trying to remove grease manually can be a near-impossible task as heavy grease is one of the toughest substances to remove. A pressure washing machine, on the other hand, offers effective cleaning power without the use of harmful chemicals. To safely enhance the power of pressure washing systems for the most demanding applications, one may consider the use of green chemicals with their machine.

Daimer® offers a wide range of cold water, hot water and steam pressure washers to suit different cleaning needs. To understand how a pressure washing machine can be effective in removing grease, it helps to know how these systems work. Pressure washers use the power and force of pressurized water to blast away dirt from the surface. Not only do pressure washing machines have different pressure levels, the nozzles can be adjusted for different spray configurations, as well.

When it comes to degreasing, steam pressure washers are often the best choice. Hot water systems can be used for light degreasing tasks or with the addition of a green degreaser. While cold water systems are not the first choice for degreasing, they can accomplish this task if an additional degreasing chemical is used. For industrial cleaning jobs that deal with heavy grease, steam pressure washing machines offer the necessary steam cleaning power coupled with high pressure levels. This allows operators to soften grease deposits so they can be washed away easily.
