Don’t Leave It Outside
If you’re using a portable machine, make sure you tidy away your equipment once you’ve completed the job at hand. We would always recommend keeping your pressure washer in a warm dry environment, as this will prevent any damage from frost. By stowing it away safely, this will also lower the risk of theft and keep your equipment safe from harm.
Don’t Forget to Get it Routinely Serviced
Routine servicing and maintenance help to make sure that you can rely on your wash equipment to provide continuous operation and service to your business throughout the year.
Don’t Leave the Doors Open
Before you begin using your pressure washer, always make sure the panel lids and doors are closed and that you aren’t washing directly on top of it. By ensuring your unit is tightly fastened, this can help to prevent water ingress and frost damage, both of which can result in a costly repair bill.
Don’t Attempt to DIY
A pressure washer, for most inexperienced users is a potentially dangerous piece of equipment once under the bonnet, where you’ll find a trifecta of live electrics, high pressure water and oil-fired combustion chambers. We would always recommend that you leave any maintenance to the experts as by wrongly diagnosing faults or fitting incorrect parts, this will only add to your problems and cost you more in the long run.
Don’t Use Unapproved Accessories
Don’t underestimate the impact that accessories can make to your pressure washer’s performance. By selecting the right accessories, such as foam applicators, detergent or a hose management system, these can enhance the performance of your equipment, whilst maximising convenience and saving time.
