Power Washing vs. Pressure Washing

Acme Pressure Wash offers professional pressure washing and steam cleaning services throughout the greater Phoenix area. We service homes, businesses, construction sites, and industrial developments. Sometimes our clients ask us about the difference between power washing and pressure washing. Although these terms are often used interchangeably, they are actually two separate processes.

What is the difference between power washing and pressure washing?

The main difference between power washing and pressure washing is water temperature. Power washing relies on heated water, while pressure washing uses force alone. Each method has advantages, depending on the type of job. Pressure washing is perfect for cleaning hard outdoor surfaces like driveways, walkways, exterior facades, patios, pools, and fountains. Power washing (or steam cleaning) dissolves dirt, mold, fungus, oil stains, paint spills, and pollution.

Does Acme use power washing or pressure washing?

At Acme Pressure Wash, we use both types of cleaning in tandem to create a combination that is customized for your property. Our expert technicians determine the exact temperature and pressure required for each job. Acme is equipped for high-pressure steam cleaning up to 300ºF and 3500 psi (pressure per square inch). Our large fleet of high end skid-mounted, industrial pressure washers can handle even the toughest messes. 

Residential and Commercial Properties

Professional pressure washing from Acme is the best way to maintain residential and commercial properties—make a good first impression with a sparkling clean storefront! Professional pressure washing removes gum, grease, grime, graffiti, and any other accumulated gunk. We also offer parking lot sweeping, paver sealing, and regular maintenance contracts to keep your business looking great.

Avoid costly home repairs with regular pressure washing upkeep. Get rid of dirt and debris, eradicate health hazards like mold and fungus, or prepare for a new coat of paint. If you plan to put your house on the market, pressure washing is a wise financial investment. Clean, well-maintained homes have a higher property value and greater curb appeal.

Acme uses steam cleaning and pressure washing on heavy equipment to remove stubborn oil and grease buildup. Whether you have a single backhoe or a fleet of machines, keep your equipment in top shape with regular pressure washing. We can clean up after hydraulic oil spills and other mishaps.
