Finding the right high pressure washer can be a difficult task. You’ve got to take into account the different engines, pumps, components and user experiences in mind.
You’ve also got to consider the different power pressures available, and determine which pressure is most appropriate for each surface.
Gas pressure washers can be effective, but they emit carbon monoxide so you can’t use them indoors. That’s why a professional electric power washer is an excellent alternative solution.
So if you’re looking for a high-quality commercial pressure washer, but aren’t quite sure what to buy, look no further. Below, we’ll outline the top electric pressure washers you can use in a commercial setting.
Commercial vs Residential High Pressure Washers
There is a significant difference between commercial and residential pressure washers. Generally, professional commercial washers are quicker and more effective cleaners than regular domestic washers.
You would use a commercial washer for industrial uses such as cleaning agricultural property, garages, warehouses, office buildings, removing graffiti, sandblasting and more.
Compared to domestic pressure waters, quality commercial high pressure cleaners will typically:
- Feature stronger pump heads
- Handle more intensive use
- Have a longer lifetime
- Feature ceramic pistons avoiding corrosion
Electric vs Petrol Pressure Washers
So if you’re interested in purchasing a pressure washer for a commercial use, the next step will involve choosing whether to buy an electric or a fuel-powered pressure washer.
Petrol high pressure washers rely on fuel as their power source, so there is no need to be near a power switch. However, they are complicated to use, heavier and require regular maintenance checks. If you understand how a fuel-powered washer works, this would be easy for you – but, if not, you’ll need to consult a professional. They also typically have a higher power pressure (approximately 5,000 PSI).
Electric high pressure washers rely on electricity, and are generally used for residential use. This is because it has a low water pressure (approximately 2,000 PSI) and are lightweight. They are not the most appropriate use for a commercial or industrial use. They are easier to maintain, and typically don’t need to buy any additional parts. Great for beginners.
