Three Tips to Buy Portable Pressure Washers


Portable pressure washers are handy machines that make hard surface cleaning easier and more efficient. Many models of these portable cleaning machines are available at present. You may find it difficult to choose the right one for yourself. The following are three basic tips that would help you to choose the right machine.

Tip 1: Power Source
For all kinds of portable pressure washers, the source of power is very important. Pressure washing machines have either an electric motor or a combustion engine to power the pump. Machines with an electric motor are often not ideal for outdoor use, as electrical outlets may not be easily available in all outdoor areas. Machines using a combustion engine, that is, gasoline, propane, or diesel pressure washers, are more mobile for outdoor cleaning, but should not be used indoors without proper ventilation. Toxic fumes could build up.

Tip 2: Type of Machine
There are two types of portable pressure washers offered by Daimer® in their Super Max™ series—wheel-attached and truck-mountable. Truck-mountable machines, such as the Super Max™ 12300 are easily mounted onto trucks or trailers for movement over larger areas. They are often ideal for construction areas as well as cleaning parks and parking lots. Wheel mounted machines, such as the Super Max™ 7000, are ideal for cleaning smaller areas, such as store fronts and sidewalks in front of buildings.

Tip 3: Find Right Supplier
A simple search on the internet will result in a number of companies that supply pressure cleaners. It is important to choose a supplier that offers quality machines and is well known for their products.

What are Steam Pressure Washers and their Uses


Steam Pressure Washer
There are steam cleaners and carpet steam cleaners – and now there are steam pressure washers. Steam cleaners provide steam output at very high temperatures to clean hard surfaces. Carpet steam cleaners are essentially carpet cleaners that provide heated output.

So, what are steam pressure washers? This post provides the answers.

Types of Pressure Washers
Pressure washing machines can be classified into three types based on their output temperature: cold water machines, hot water machines, and steam machines. Cold water machines do not have a heating element and can only accept pre-heated water. Hot water machines can raise the output temperature up to 210°F.

Steam pressure washers can provide an output temperature of 330°F, the highest for any pressure washing machine. The main advantage of these machines is that they can provide both high temperature and high pressure.

Uses of Steam Pressure Washers
Steam pressure washers from Daimer®, a reputable supplier, have a variety of uses. Machines in their Super Max™ series, such as the Super Max™ 12200, are used for heavy duty industrial degreasing, one of the hardest commercial cleaning tasks. These are also machines used for auto detailing.

Machines with high temperature output clean more efficiently and finish the job quickly. However, look got machines with low flow rates to ensure minimal water use and wastage.
