ADVANTAGES OF USING HOT WATER:


  1. Hot water pressure washing uses significantly less water when compared with cold water pressure washing to the same standard of cleanliness. In general it’s about twice as water efficient, however when oil, traffic, and other petroleum based stains or chewing gum are considered, this advantage is compounded many times over. Hot water simply cuts through oil based stains much more efficiently.

  2. Hot water pressure washing dislodges far more surface dirt with less energy and substantially less water when compared with cold water.

  3. Simply heating the water in a pressure washing system is in many ways equal to or better than introducing detergent additives to cold water. A great many detergents available today are not something you want on your unprotected skin, so it’s not a good idea to flush these chemicals out into the natural environment, through municipal storm drains which lead to the “Waters of the State”. These natural waters and water ways are protected by the Clean Water Act, passed into law in the 1940’s and significantly expanded in the 1970’s.

  4. Although not yet heavily enforced, the use of hot water is generally not permitted and not legal, unless a reclamation system is also employed, precisely because it is so much more effective at dislodging and releasing contaminants. To take it a bit further, pressure washing in general, including cold water only, requires the use of a reclamation system. Nothing but natural rain is legally permitted to enter any municipal storm drain.

  5. Without including the added cost of a reclamation system which is usually required when pressure washing, the net benefits of using hot water far outweigh the added cost of fuel used at the burner where the water is heated.

  6. While providing a superior cleaning result, hot water will lessen the amount of time your contractor and his equipment are exposed to your customers or residents.

  7. The use of hot water significantly reduces the cost of waste water transport and disposal because it is generally twice as water efficient.

  8. Since labor, fuel, and water consumption rise so drastically in most cleaning situations when using cold water, generally it is more efficient to just settle for a lesser result.

  9. The most common myth and most common false assumption about hot water pressure washing is that it costs more for the contractor to perform, and thus will cost more for the customer. An experienced pressure washing contractor knows that using hot water actually costs him less resources, in addition to providing better looking results. The equipment is more expensive to acquire initially but ultimately is costs less.
