Factors to Consider Before Buying a Pressure Washer

A thorough cleaning can bring a world of difference in the appearance of anything you own. Be it a house, walkway, or even a car, everything is subject to collecting dust and stains over time. When it comes to fighting stubborn stains, grime, or even mold and mildew, nothing works better than a pressure wash.

Buying a pressure washer is no easy task. There are several factors you must consider before finding the ideal match for your needs. Here are some of the factors to simplify your decision-making process.

Your Needs

The first and most important factor to be considered before making any purchase is your needs. If you are a homeowner who requires a pressure washer for small, personal cleanups, an axial pump is a good choice. However, if you need a pressure washer for things like washing the siding, paint stripping, or removing mold and mildew, a triplex pump would be best.

Check the Water Pressure and Power Source

Naturally, a pressure washer requires a strong water and power source. Consult your plumber to ensure that you have the required water source for the kind of pressure washer you are looking to buy before you make the purchase. As for the power source, if you choose an electric washer, you would need a circuit of at least 20amps to power it.

Know What Attachments You Need

It may seem like a good idea to buy a range of nozzles, wands, and brushes for your power washer, but you should know what your needs are first. Buying more than what you specifically need can be unnecessarily expensive and time-consuming and is thus best avoided.

Operating and Storing a Pressure Washer

Learn how to operate your pressure washer correctly before using it to get the best results. Also, it is important that you store your washer properly to avoid damaging it by accident.

Check For the PWMA Stamp

A pressure washer bearing the logo of PWMA, or Pressure Washer Manufacturers’ Association, has been evaluated and approved by that association and can thus be trusted for quality.

Buy the Right Cleaners

Not all cleaners or detergents go with all kinds of pressure washers. Consult an expert to find out which specific detergents will work for your washer and buy accordingly.

Storing & Prepping Your Landa Pressure Washer During the Winter

With the winter and cold here, you need to know how to properly prepare and protect your Landa pressure washer from the freezing and colder temperatures. Without proper winter maintenance and preparation, a pressure washer can be seriously damaged and even break.

At Crown Cleaning Systems, we’re always here to provide guidance on equipment maintenance and more. So, follow these simple steps to make sure you and your pressure washer are ready for when the cold winter weather hits.

How to Store Your Washer

Ideally, you should try to keep your Landa pressure washer in a room or area that is heated. This will prevent any potential freezing of left-over water that still may be in your washer. Since water expands when it freezes, this can cause the pump and other parts to break.

While it may be tempting to leave it in an outside shed, cold winters like we get here in Cleveland will always bring freezing temperatures and cause potential issues for your machine.

Preparing Your Pressure Washer for Winter Hibernation

Piggybacking off the above tip, if you either don’t have a heated area for your washer or will not be using it over the winter, the first thing you should do is fill your float tank with antifreeze (once it is empty of course). Then take off the wand tip and continue to redistribute the antifreeze through your washer until there is nothing left in the tank.Doing this will ensure that your plumbing and pump do not freeze over the winter.

Check your oil levels and add any oil to the engine if needed. Be sure you also add a bit of fuel stabilizer and let the motor run for a few minutes. This will make running your engine in the summer or spring for the first time a bit easier.

Detach the gun and hose, and your Landa pressure washer is ready to hibernate over the winter months.
