Choosing Pressure Washing Equipment

As you begin to plan and build your business, there are many challenging decisions.  So choosing the best pressure washing equipment for your business is a one of those important decisions.   One of the terms you will hear most often is, what is your business model going to be?  Likewise, the questioner is trying to determine what type of business are you going to be going after.  Residential and Commercial cleaning can be two different types of cleaning, requiring different types of equipment.  Notice I said can be? They can also be very similar, and can be done the with the same exact equipment.

Choosing Pressure Washing Equipment

One of the things I like to do in our school is to help you choose pressure washing equipment. Especially when selecting equipment for the type of work you plan to do.  While I do not sell equipment, (yet) I do have several trusted vendors that I can recommend.  They will provide you quotes for exactly what you need.  And they not try to over sell you or sell you items you do not need.  If you only intend to clean houses, not roofs, there is no need for a dedicated pump.  Soft Washing vinyl siding, stucco, eifs, and even brick houses come clean with a pressure washer and the correct nozzles. The only time a dedicated pump would be needed is if you are planning to clean roofs.

Dedicated Pumps

Dedicated pumps that are powered by a 12V battery, or even some air diaphragm pumps, are really best suited for cleaning roofs and the occasional small house or building.  If you are planning to get into large upscale homes and commercial buildings, then choosing pressure washing equipment that has a high volume pump, like 5-10 gpm will enable you to clean much faster, making you more profitable.  These types of pumps allow you to not only to get your detergents on a large surface faster, they will also provide much faster and more thorough rinsing.

Never buy Pressure Washing Equipment that will not make you profitable

I am more than happy to assist any student of my school with the choosing the best pressure washing equipment for your business.  Usually after a short consultation I can pin point your exact needs and then refer you to a vendor that will build your system and provide much needed support after the sale.
