One of the most essential tools to possess when you have a car is a washing machine for maintenance purposes mainly as it helps in cleaning services efficiently.
This article, therefore, focuses on the many factors to look at before settling on a machine. Having a machine that works conveniently for you is a sure priority.
Possessing a pressure washer is vital in helping you cut car washing service costs. It is easy to learn and use the machine.
Before then though, there are a couple of factors to look at before purchasing the best machine for you. Here are some of the features to consider;
- Rate of water flow
A machine backed up with a high rate of water flow is more efficient because cleaning needs more water. When water flows fast from the nozzle, the cleaning process is faster.
- Size/Power of engine
The pressure of the machine depends on its size and power. Machines with more power increase the flow rate thus improving the cleaning process.
Big machines also have the capability of generating more power during the cleaning process.
This factor also goes hand in hand with a high flow rate. A reliable machine reaches high pressures of about 150bar.
With high pressure, water is released fast from the nozzle creating a high flow rate in turn which improves cleaning.
- Length of the hose
This determines the distance you move around your car while cleaning. A long hose moves easier without necessarily creating the need to carry the machine around.
Most machine models, however, come with long hoses, and the electric ones have cable cords as part of their components.
- Easy movement
Whether your intention for buying the machine is for business or your personal use, portability is a feature to consider because it is easier to use a machine that moves freely around your car.
Most heavyweight machines have wheels for easy movement around the car when cleaning. The ones without wheels are not heavy and can be moved around easily.
The price of any commodity is an important aspect to check before any purchase is made. These machines are not an exclusion as different machines come with different prices set.
The pressure washer price in Kenya varies across all the dealers. For clients who want to buy the machine, a thorough evaluation of its need and quality is necessary to know if the price allocated is worthy.
- Type of pressure washer.
Everyone has their preferences when it comes to selecting the best machine. The two commons are the electric and petrol powered machines with both having their advantages.
Electric-powered machines are mostly preferred in cases where noise is unnecessary and for quiet operations as they are equipped with an induction engine.
Petrol-powered machines are the most portable as they don’t need power from electricity to function. This feature makes it easy to use in cleaning even in open fields.
There are plenty of pressure washers in the market, with this increase it is easy to buy the wrong machine. Analyze all the machines to make sure you end up with a legit one. A good car wash business need a good vacuum cleaner to vacuum your client car as you wash it.
