Is There a Difference Between Power Washing and Pressure Washing?

Location: Atlanta, GA, USA
Nothing knocks dirt off homes
 like water-streams delivering
 up to 2,000 pounds of force.
Although the two are used almost interchangeably, the answer here is technically yes.

Pressure washing and power washing are different in one major way: A power washer lets you control the temperature of the water; pressure washers do not.

Both, however, are capable of delivering the same water velocity.

Whether you need a power washer or pressure washer depends on what you're cleaning from a surface:

  • POWER WASHING- A power washer provides steady streams of heated water, which works well to rid surfaces of mold, mildew and thick clumps of dirt. The more stuff you have stuck on whatever you're cleaning, the more you'll benefit from power washing.
  • PRESSURE WASHING- Pressure washers clean through water pressure alone. Pressure washers work well on masonry, brick and concrete.
Whether you hire someone depends on your level of comfort with operating a pressure washing machine, as well as the area you want to have cleaned. Generally, the bigger the job, the more benefit you'll get out of hiring someone. The amount of time it takes a pro to do a job will drive most of the price. Contractors can estimate the amount of time their work will take based on the size of the area to be cleaned.
