Power tools have, in the past century or so, revolutionised the way DIY enthusiasts, builders, engineers and handy men and women go about their work. Such tools as electric drills, nail guns and jack hammers have made it possible to complete jobs considerably more quickly and efficiently than with hand tools. Indeed, in some cases, powered tools can enable certain tasks to be completed with greater precision than when done manually.
Some power tools have also raised the bar in terms of what can be accomplished when trying to make a property clean and tidy. Pressure washers fall in to this category. They work by being initially attached to a mains water supply. Then, a powerful electronic motor takes over, driving the water through the machine so that it emerges at the end in the form of a forceful jet of water. This water jet can be adapted through the use of various nozzles, so it can be directed at almost any kind of outdoor target area.
The impact of a minimum 100-bar pressure jet on some embedded grime, deep in the cracks of steps up to a front door, for example, is simply immense. The results are highly satisfying, as the grime is instantly swept up and away.
Pressure washers are sufficiently versatile to be applied to such tasks as cleaning cars, drives, outdoor barbecue equipment, and garden furniture. They have made property maintenance a lot easier for professionals and house-proud homeowners alike.
