Pressure washers can provide an output pressure up to 8000 psi. However, such high pressure levels are not required for auto detailing. In fact, the pressure level of these machines should not exceed 1500 psi. Pressure levels above 1500 psi can damage the vehicle, causing dents, scratches, and paint chipping.
The flow rate indicates the quantity of water passed through the output of the machine in a minute. It is expressed in gallons per minute. Normally, flow rate goes up as the output power increases. For car detailing, pressure washers with low flow rate are ideal. Such machines use minimal water for effective cleaning where water supply or drainage facilities are limited. This is particularly useful in the case of mobile auto detailing, where professionals do not detail within their facility.
What facilitates effective cleaning without harming vehicle surfaces is the inclusion of heat, alongside moderate pressure levels. Wet steam output is preferred for auto detailing, as it rapidly dissolves the most stubborn residues for quick and easy removal.
