Karcher has earned its place as one of the leading pressure washer brands in America. For any large piece of machinery, it is important to know how to use it safely and properly to get the best clean out of your Karcher pressure washer and all its parts.
To help make your life easier, we’ve put together a list of five important tips for using your Karcher pressure washer.
1. Use the appropriate settings for the job
Although the Karcher pressure washer is fairly easy to set up, once you have plugged it into a power outlet and connected the washer to the gun, it is important to get familiar with the settings.
By pressing the plus and minus symbols, you can increase and decrease the water pressure. For wood and pavement, you may want to use the highest setting to get rid of stuck-on grime. For a more delicate surface like the outside of your car, you may want to use a lower setting.
Accessories such as turbo nozzles will add even more pressure. These Karcher pressure washer parts can be found at our Cleveland, Ohio, store location.
2. Add detergent for a thorough clean
Many stores that sell Karcher pressure washers in Ohio will also sell parts and detergents to add to a thorough clean. Pick up a detergent such as Dyna-Shine or Low Foam Force for your car, patio or whatever other surfaces you want to freshen up.
3. Prevent your pressure washer from switching on by accident
A Karcher pressure washer is a powerful cleaning tool, which means you must always be in control of it so that it does not cause damage. Your Karcher pressure washer comes with useful parts such as the safety latch, which will stop it from turning on when you are not using it. However, it is always best to turn the machine off entirely when it is not in use.
4. Wear protective clothing
Operators of this powerful machine should cover themselves with heavy-duty clothes and footwear such as sturdy rubber boots. This will help prevent injuries caused by the extremely high water pressure.
5. Be aware of your surroundings
Before using your Karcher pressure washer, make sure that no one is around you, and there are no delicate objects in the way. To keep small children safe, it is always best to ask them to stay in another area of your home while you use your pressure washer.
