High pressure cleaner: use

The possibilities of using a high-pressure cleaner are many, even if the cleaning of the floors (concrete as wood) is the main field of action. It will also be used for cleaning cars and motorcycles, but also for cleaning or stripping facades.

The use of a high-pressure cleaner requires a number of precautions, particularly in the choice of nozzles and the distance to be established between them and the surface to be treated. The force of the pressure, combined with a small distance between the nozzle, in particular rotary, and the surface to be cleaned can lead to degrade it. Some accessories such as the rotating deck brush are safe to use.
