Question: What does hot water pressure washing do? And why is it better?
Answer: Heated water is important because it creates a faster abrasive action, which combined with the cleaning chemicals breaks down the dirt more effectively. Hot water pressure washing can also be used without any chemicals which is a great substitute for soaps and allergies. Hot water pressure washing also runs at a lower PSI meaning less power is needed to clean.
