A pressure washer is ideal for cleaning concrete or decking, pathways, patios, steps, and other surfaces. With a single blast, the top models can remove months or even years of stains.
Remember that all pressure washers, also known as power washers, should be used with caution before unleashing the heavy artillery. These instruments shoot a concentrated and forceful high-pressure spray of water, capable of injuring people and causing property damage. As a result, we only make suggestions based on a fraction of the numerous models we test.
If you want to use the force of a pressure washer, follow Consumer Reports’ safe operating guidelines, which are outlined below.
How They Operate.
Pressure washers use a gas or electric engine to power a pump that sends high-pressure water through a focusing nozzle to blast away accumulated filth on surfaces like decks, driveways, and patios. They also allow you to clean outdoor chairs, some types of siding, and other items in a fraction of the time that a scrub brush and hose would take.
