Heated Pressure Washing in Columbia & Nearby
If the surface that you're planning on cleaning has any type of grease, grime, or oil, it won't be easy to remove, even with power washing services. For these types of exterior cleaning projects, the professionals at ProClean recommend using heated pressure washing in Columbia and the surrounding areas. Heated pressure cleaning is a great way to remove even the toughest grime.
There are three key elements to a hot water pressure washer that allow them to successfully remove grease and grime:
- Heat creates high-speed molecular action that lets the cleaning agent be more active and reduces the water's surface tension so that it can more easily penetrate grime.
- Agitation caused by the pressurized water acts similarly to a scrubber when it hits the surface.
- Detergents chemically break the bonds that are allowing the grime, grease, and dirt to adhere to the surface. Detergents use softening agents to emulsify grease and reduce adherence.
Our heated pressure washing services combine these three elements to clean the toughest grease and oil stains.
Is a Steam Cleaner the Same as a Heated Pressure Washer?
While you might hear some people refer to heated pressure washers as steam cleaners, they are actually very different and should be used for very different services at your property. While both use heated water, steam cleaning does not use pressurized water, which gives in a disadvantage is some situations. Heated pressure washers are actually much more effective at cleaning the surfaces of any part of your property than steam cleaners, which should only be used when you're disinfecting a surface and therefore need very high temperatures. Our pressure washing company would be happy to provide you with more details if you give us a call today.
When Should You Use Heated Pressure Washers?
If you need to clean oil, grease, or similar substances from the surfaces at your Columbia property, heated pressure washers will give you the fastest and most effective results. Just like washing dishing in your sink, hot water helps to separate grease and grime, where colder water will only be able to move it around.
If you're only trying to get rid of mud, paint, or even mold and mildew growth, heated pressure washing won't be necessary. In fact, when combined with the right detergent, standard pressure cleaning in Columbia and nearby can be excellent for many different types of jobs. However, as a simple rule of thumb, anything that cold water can clean, hot water will be able to clean better and faster.
