Pressure Washer Surface Cleaner: What You Need To Know
What is a Surface Cleaner?
A pressure washer surface cleaner is a must have accessory for anyone who cleans concrete. They can speed up your work and smooth out the final product.
There are many choices when it comes to pressure washer surface cleaners and we get a lot of questions about them. Will a large pressure washer surface cleaner help you clean faster? What size nozzles should you use? What causes vibration and friction and how can you eliminate those issues? Are wheels better than floaters?
Surface cleaners come in various widths and configurations and help with cleaning larger, flat areas like driveways, sidewalks, drive thru and parking areas with speed and consistency.
Most come with side skirts to keep water spray under the unit and prevent damage from flying debris. Models with a return suction line can also remove the waste water that is created as it cleans.
Larger surface cleaners usually come with wheels in various configurations to aid in keeping the unit in a flat cleaning plane over the surface.
