Before you get started, take stock of what you have and what you are cleaning. Will a hot water pressure washer be enough or will you need a professional water pressure washer? You can get an honest assessme6tn by contacting Hydro Tek. You should also determine what disinfectants or cleaners you will need, and how you will get rid of or recycle water once the cleaning is complete.
Every job is unique and every job requires you to find the right cleaning pressure. You will take into consideration a number of factors including how much dirt is on the surface, if there is any oil or grease on the surface, and more. You will also consider the surface itself and how much pressure it can stand without being damaged.
The hotter you set the water, the more germs and bacteria can be killed. Generally speaking, you are looking for a temperature between 185 – 212F to get rid of much of the bacteria. If you want to get rid of all germs then you will need to go up to 311F. Consider the surface type and make sure it can handle the temperature you choose.
Depending on the surface and what you are trying to remove, hot water may be enough. In other cases, you may need to add detergent. Before making a choice, consider the local and statewide requirements and recommendations on what you can and cannot use. When you get the right detergent, soak the surface in it for the recommended amount of time.
Once it has had time to soak properly, soak the surface with hot water/steam. Remove as much dirt as you can. Remember that while cleaning is essential, it just part of the equation – you should also add disinfectant. Choose one that is okay to use with the material you are using it.
