“My TurboKiller’ nozzle is the best investment I have ever made (apart from my PowerBlast® High Pressure cleaner)! I can now clean an average of 3 tiled roofs per day – when I only used to be able to clean 2 per day!.
I would recommend one to anybody who is really serious about cleaning – and even to people who aren’t really serious about cleaning!”.

Should I use hot water or cold ?

Improve your cleaning efficiency by upgrading to Hot Water!

Cold water high pressure cleaners can be used very successfully in many different applications – using a combination of the water impact, and, where necessary – the use of chemical or soap.

Generally, cold water is used in applications such as cleaning heavy earthmoving equipment, removing marine life, general maintenance and building cleaning, and other areas where grease and oil are not factors.

When it comes to cleaning applications where you are required to sanitize or degrease an area – this is where hot water high pressure cleaners are ideal. They clean much faster and more thoroughly than their cold water counterparts.

Why? Well. We all know that when we wash the dishes it is much easier if we use hot water – and even easier if we use hot water, and a cleaning chemical. The reason is that the hot water is able to dissolve the grease rather than just shifting it as cold water does. This results in a much cleaner surface. The hot water is also ideal for areas that require hot water or steam for sanitization – for example food processing plants, pharmaceutical plants and other federally inspected areas.

We have different hot water models available:

  • Diesel heated electric models from the Kranzle range
  • Electrically heated electric models from the Kranzle range (ideal for indoor use and for sanitary/food/pharmaceutical applications – no fumes, no fuel)
  • Self-contained engine driven units – no electricity required
  • We can also supply Zone Rated hot water units, LPG driven hot water units, and more!

Pressure Cleaning Safety Tips

Before you start your pressure cleaning job, it is important to identify all hazards of the job, to ensure you are well prepared.

Next, you must ensure you have taken every safety precaution for yourself, others doing cleaning, and other people, animals and areas around you.

Identifying Hazards around you. These may include, but are not limited to:

  • Extreme temperatures – be wary of cleaning in extreme heat, you may be susceptible to heat exhaustion and fatigue
  • Airborne objects – cleaning dirty surfaces can send debris up towards you
  • Chemical Hazards – when cleaning with chemicals, be sure to take the proper precautions recommended by the chemical manufacturer, e.g. use chemical proof protective clothing
  • Electric shock – ensure any power cables being used are not in low lying areas where water may gather – lift them up where possible. Ensure water is not directed at the power supply or at the pressure cleaner
  • Fumes/Ventilation – when using a pressure cleaner with a petrol or diesel engine, or a hot water unit with a diesel burner, ensure there is proper ventilation around the work area
  • Use proper warning signage around the cleaning area to prevent people coming near

Ensure you have proper safety gear:

  • Eye protection – always wear safety glasses or a face shield when using a high pressure cleaner, to protect against chemicals, debris bouncing back and spray back.
  • Wear proper clothing that does not restrict movement or vision. For high pressure applications upwards of 5000psi, special safety clothing is available that is able to resist direct spray from a pressure cleaner
  • If using engine driven pressure cleaning equipment, use appropriate ear protection as they can be quite loud.
  • If you are doing a job on a roof or on a scaffolding, always use appropriate fall restraint equipment
  • Wear gloves and boots to protect against chemicals, high pressure water, debris and other hazards. Boot protectors are also available for applications where you are cleaning near your feet
  • Ensure you wear a respirator/mask when working around dust, chemicals, paints and other toxic fumes.
