The Secret Weapon in Bio-Security During the Coronavirus is a Hot Water Pressure Washer

Any company that has made it this far into the coronavirus pandemic has likely done all they know to do to ensure their business is as safe and sanitary as possible. In fact, at Hydro Tek we are proud to offer many of the tools necessary to do this. Our clients have discovered what we have long known: Hot water pressures are the secret weapon when it comes to successful bio-security measures.

You Should Be Cleaning More, Cleaning Faster, and Cleaning More Efficiently

The fact of the matter is that a solid bio security response should involve a pressure washer. This is the best way to clean more surfaces, clean the surfaces you need to clean as fast as possible, and to get the cleaning process completed as efficiently as possible. Whether you are cleaning floors, agricultural equipment, carts, or anything else, hot water is one of the essential tools.

Do You Know the Main Three Benefits of Cleaning with Hot Water?

You likely know that you should clean with hot water – after all, you would not likely clean your dishes with cold water – but you might not know why it is so important. Here are three of the biggest benefits you can experience by cleaning with hot water:

  1. Your results are better and faster
  2. Hygiene is improved including lower bacteria and virus counts
  3. You will be consuming fewer resources compared to alternative cleaning options

In short, you get better results in less time and while using fewer resources.

Cleaning Could Be as Much as 75% Faster with Hot Water

At Hydro Tek we are proud to have worked with the Cleaning Technology Institute to get answers on how much faster it is to clean with hot water than cold. Cold water pressure washers are helpful in situations where hot water might damage the surface, but in all applications hot water cleans faster. The average was 40% faster but in instances where oils were involved, the reduction was as much as 75%.

Keep in mind that the actual cleaning is not only faster, but the surface also dries faster. This means that the time from starting to clean to the time you have a usable surface again is shorter all around.

We Can Help You Clean and Sanitizing

It has become clear in today’s climate that cleaning in and of itself is not enough – we must also work to sanitize. This is the best way to stop viruses, bacteria, and germs. The best way to sanitize is to start with deep cleaning. Cold water has zero impact on bacteria but if you clean with water t6hat is heated to 140F, it reduces bacteria by 90%. Get up to 311F and your bacteria is reduced 100%. COVID-19 in particular requires temperatures of 133F to be inactivated.

We look forward to helping you find the solutions you are looking for. Contact Hydro Tek at 800-274-9376 now to learn more.

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.
