Can You Name the Top Three Benefits of Cleaning with Hot Water?

Do you know what they are? Keep reading to find out and then contact us at 800-274-9376 if you are ready to learn more about the available hot water pressure washers and accessories.

  1. You Get Better, Faster Results
  2. Put simply, hot water cleaning is more efficient than other options. Consider this: Do you wash your dishes at home with hot water or cold water? If you are like most people, you wash your dishes with hot water and for good reason – it is the best, fastest way to get your dishes clean.

    This is true with hot and cold water pressures too. One study showed that hot water could reduce the time it took to clean a surface by as much as 40%. In other instances in which the main substances to be cleaned were oils, fats, and grease, hot water was found to be four times as efficient as cold water.

  3. Hot Water Can Reduce Bacteria and Viruses
  4. You can’t turn on the news or look at the internet without being inundated with news on how you can reduce bacteria and viruses in your home and workplace. While there are many false claims being made, one tried and true option has been used for decades and continues to work: Hot water. One study showed that cleaning a surface with clean water had zero effect on the amount of bacteria on it. When the temperature was raised to 140F bacteria was reduced by 90% and at 176F the bacteria was reduced by 97%.

  5. Hot Water Requires Fewer Resources to Be Consumed
  6. There are three ways that hot water uses fewer resources than cold water. First, it is efficient, as discussed above. The faster you can get a surface clean, the less water you use. Second, it requires less energy due to its shorter cleaning time. Finally, many companies and individuals who use hot water to clean their homes or properties are able to clean without any chemicals. This is great for groundwater, the environment, and the eco-system overall. However, note that if you want to sanitize, you will need to use a sanitizer.

    Simply by heating up the water, a hot water pressure washer delivers dramatically improved cleaning power compared to a cold water machine. Hot water pressure washers are especially useful for cleaning sticky, greasy, or oily surfaces, because they will loosen the dirt much faster without the large amounts of soap, detergent, or other cleaning chemicals that must be used with a cold water system.

    A hot water pressure washer is essential for any cleanup job involving a sticky, greasy, or oily mess, as well as for applications where a surface must be sanitized. With a variety of models available, including self-contained mobile units with gas, diesel, or electric power, Hydro Tek hot water pressure washers can go anywhere and clean anything.

Quality & Innovation Since 1985

Hydro Tek

From simple beginnings in 1985, Hydro Tek has grown to become the most trusted name in the pressure washer manufacturing industry.

How did we do it? By continually focusing on quality and reliability as the key to customer satisfaction, and by incorporating the latest technologies into our design and manufacturing processes.

By 1991, we were using computer-aided drafting systems to refine our product designs and improve efficiency. In 1997, we brought the power of computers to the shop floor by incorporating laser-cutting and other CNC manufacturing machinery, and in 2001 we began focusing on improving efficiency through the latest manufacturing techniques. The end result has been superior products delivered at a superior value to our customers. Through the next decade, we look forward to fulfilling our vision of making our products the "obvious choice" for all your industrial and commercial cleaning needs.
