Hiring a Pressure Washer vs Purchasing


Pressure washing

To hire or not to hire, that is the question. OK, it may not be THE question, but it’s an important one especially when you’re looking to get a pressure washer. If you’ve got decking to clean, driveway to sweep or paint to remove, a pressure washer should be the go-to option to get the job done quickly and easily, but why? Let’s take a look at why you should hire a pressure washer:​

The Benefits of Pressure Washers

We’ll make it easy for you. Hiring a pressure washer is always going to be the preferred option, rather than buying one. Think about how often you need a pressure washer. Not very often right? Why would you purchase something that’s going to spend most of the time in the garage or shed? If you’re still not convinced, allow us to go further.

The main benefit of a pressure washer, whether you hire or buy one, is to allow you to carry out a deep clean on your property. Being able to wash away layers of dirt or debris from your decking, driveway or patio can revitalise it, washing away years of grime, but it’s not an everyday task. It’s not something you need to do daily or even weekly, but it’s important that when you do need to do it, that it works. Hiring a pressure washer allows you to save money without sacrificing any quality.

Hiring one removes this risk of it being damaged, because it will be regularly serviced and tested at the shop, so there won’t be any maintenance for you to do and no costs associated with replacing any parts.

Who Needs to Hire a Pressure Washer

Those people who need to use a pressure washer often fall into 3 categories:

1. Those who need to use one just once or twice a year (or even less).

2. Those who can’t afford a contractor to do the job for them.

3. For those who need a heavy-duty pressure washer who can’t afford to buy one that meets their needs.

All of these issues can be easily solved by hiring one. You can pick the washer that is exactly what you’re looking for, and it’s this flexibility that is also another benefit when hiring a cold water pressure washer.

There are many different types of a pressure washer, depending on the size of the task at hand. If you have a few jobs to do of varying complexity, you can easily hire the one that will solve all of those problems in one go. If you’ve only got one at home to choose from, it’s not going to be capable of doing the larger jobs.

The final benefit of hiring a portable jet wash is that there’s no long-term commitment. Buying one can be an expensive proposition, one which hiring it for a day or so can remove. You also opt-out of the commitment of keeping it maintained and the responsibility for upkeep, cleaning or storing it.

If you have some jobs around the house that need some pressure washing, then we hope that we’ve highlighted why hiring one is the preferred option. Think about the tasks you’re going to tackle, consider the time, space and skills needed to clean them and speak to your local hire shop. They will be able to advise you on exactly the washing you’re going to need. Once done, take it back and smile knowing it’s no longer your problem.
