Building projects can involve several stages, including demolition, planning, construction and clean-up. Finding the right equipment for each stage streamlines the process, making your work more efficient and the end result higher quality.
One of the most essential tools for finishing and cleaning up is a pressure washer. In this blog, we focus on why dual pressure washer models are particularly useful in construction and industrial settings.
What Is a Dual Pressure Washer?
Conventional pressure washers either use a rotary cleaner or a hose and attachments to apply high-pressure water to the intended surfaces. These pressure washers are generally confined to floor or ground cleaning and vertical surface cleaning, respectively.
A dual pressure washer consists of both a rotary cleaner and a hose. To switch between the two settings, the operator simply turns a knob to redirect the water. This versatility allows one pressure washer to be used for either ground or vertical surface applications.
How Are Dual Pressure Washers Used?
Dual pressure washers can be used for virtually any application that you would use a conventional pressure washer for. However, dual pressure washers are particularly well-suited to work involving the following.
Metal rubbish bins can withstand a lot of use. However, certain types of garbage can leave residue behind. In a professional setting, this residue can create unpleasant working conditions and encourage pest infestations. Dual pressure washers can clear away messes on both the bottom and sides of bins.
2. Car Parks
Construction and painting in car parks can leave dust and residue behind. Once the pavement cures and the paint dries, a dual pressure washer can clear away the waste. With a dual model, you can use the rotary cleaner for concentrated messes or the attachment for cleaning from a distance.
Dual pressure washers are ideal for most paving applications, including residential and commercial driveways. The hose can clear away dirt and debris, while the rotary cleaner removes oil spills and other eyesores.
While a building is under construction, cleaning can be complex due to the cracks and crevices in the area. A dual pressure washer’s rotary cleaner can help with the initial cleaning, and the attachment can clear away any debris that the rotary cleaner missed.
5. Industrial Machinery
Keeping your equipment clean on a jobsite is a vital maintenance step. The rotary cleaner can be used for catwalks and walkways, while the hose attachments can clean individual machinery components with more precision. Dual pressure washers are particularly well-suited to factories and manufacturing facilities with complex equipment.
6. Mining Applications
Pressure washers are used for safety, cleanliness and substance control on mining sites. Because you cannot predict exactly how you’ll use a pressure washer in a mining shift, a dual pressure washer is a smart investment.
7. Sports Courts
Constructing and maintaining sports courts requires both ground and fencing work. A pressure washer can help clear away the debris of construction or clean up messes that result from weather or normal use. With a dual model, you can clean the surface of the court itself, the fencing or sport-specific equipment like a basketball hoop or tennis net.
Stairs can be complex to clean thoroughly because they have both vertical and horizontal surfaces. With a dual pressure washer, you can effectively maintain the tops and sides of stairways. This equipment can be used during the building period on indoor stairs or for routine cleaning on outdoor stairways.
Whether you’re investing in a pressure washer for your self-owned contracting business or for a large-scale industrial project, consider a dual model to get more functionality for your money.
