Power Washer Service
A power washer is a machine equipped with a sprayer that provides a powerful stream of hot water. Power washers are used to clean a variety of surfaces, such as decks, house siding and even other types of equipment. The term "power washer" is often used interchangeably with the term "pressure washer", however, they have one significant difference. Pressure washers use cold or room temperature water and don't include parts for heating the water prior to spraying. Power washers and pressure washers both come in either gas-powered or electric models.
