House or commercial buildings become to appear dull over time as continuous dirt, mold, mildew, and grime gradually builds upon the exterior surface of the building. Power washing and pressure washing are used extensively for their effectiveness in cleaning a wide range of surfaces, walkways, and patio. The function of both power washing and pressuring washings is the same, where both the techniques use high pressured water applied to the hard surface of the building premises to remove dirt and other materials. While the process looks more or less the same, it is necessary to know the key differences to understand the better suitability of each process.
Heat Factor In Power Washing
Both the power washer machine and pressure water machine create a powerful stream of high-pressure water to clean the hard surfaces of the building to give them a cleaned and beautiful look. The major difference between the two processes is the presence of a heating element in the power washer equipment that heats up the water, whereas the pressure washer does not use the heated water for cleaning. It is highly recommended to utilize the expertise of professional power washers which are better trained in adjusting water thermostat and handling the velocity of the water to prevent risk damage to the outer surface siding and paints

Pressure washing process uses high-pressure regular temperature water that can effectively remove the debris, bigger dirt particles and mildew stains on the surface, but are not ideal to kill the mold, mild dew and moss.
Power Washing Advantage
The major advantage of the power washer is the combination of high pressure and temperature of the water that helps in blasting away dirt, grease stains, and other materials from the exterior surface of the building. Power washing process uses water that has been heated to a certain temperature, which can easily break down material contamination on the outer surface and remove even tough bubble gums from the surface. Power washing can efficiently clean the saturated outer surfaces and control the growth of weeds and moss by killing them with the powerful blast of hot water.
Some Application Areas Of Power Washing And Pressure Washing
Power washing is highly efficient to remove the grime, dirt, and tough, greasy stains from exterior areas with hard surfaces such as patios, sidewalks, fences, decks, and driveways. Heavy machinery power washing equipment uses high force heated water which ensures effective removal of adamant objects such as chewing gums on the sideways and prevents regrowth of weeds and moss.
As pressure water relies water on the force of the water rather than its temperature, it is generally recommended for normal cleaning of masonry, brick, and concrete to remove dirt, mold, mildew and other hazardous materials.
