What are some common names for High Pressure Cleaning?
- Pressure Washing
In Australia, Gerni and Karcher are the most popular and well known Pressure Cleaners. If you hear someone say: “I Gerni-ed my driveway”, you will know what they mean!
How does High Pressure Cleaning work?
It’s simple really. The petrol or electric powered motor, drives the compressor which draws in air. The air is compressed and forced into the mix with water from the hose at your tap. This increase in pressure causes the water to flow at a terrific rate. High pressure and velocity water shoots out of the narrowed nozzle. The water exerts much force on the surfaces it encounters. The water dislodges dirt, grime, mold, lichen, paint, pollution staining or whatever other unwanted material is covering the surface.
During operation, the Technician, holds the water jet gun and varies the pressure using the either the trigger or a dial or switch on the machine itself. A gauge will tell the operator the current water flow rate and pressure.
Detergent when added to the water, can heighten the ability to dislodge foreign particles. It helps break the chemical bonds of grease. Left behind is a fresh surface. Sounds easy? Well, the key is in the method. It is easy to apply too much water pressure and damage surfaces. A Professional Operator with experience knows how much pressure to apply and what to do if things don’t go as planned!

Your roof can also be pressure cleaned to remove, moss, lichen, bird poo, hardened dirt, and many types of staining. Once cleaned, your roof may look excellent and not need any more work. The same holds for other surfaces.
Can I Use a Gerni Myself?
You might see a small Karcher Pressure Cleaner at Bunnings Warehouse and say: “Can’t I do it myself?” Well yes and no. Water-blasting machines may cost thousands of dollars to purchase and maintain. They are dangerous to use. For a minor job yes you could use a small cheap Pressure Cleaner from Karcher or Gerni. But to do it properly you want a machine with sufficient Capacity. This is measured in PSI or BAR. Another unit of measurement is the flow rate of water. The flow rate is measured in L/min or litres per minute. The pump, motor capacity is measure in horse-power, HP or kilowatts, KW. You will also want a skilled Professional with the know how to operate the machine. Additionally, some surfaces such as porous stonework will need sealing afterwards.
What kind of Machine do I need?
Different High Pressure Cleaning Machines work better for different surfaces, see our page on Pressure Cleaners for more information. Most commonly used is a 2000 psi machine, however 4000 psi may be needed for more intense water-blasting. Higher pressures such as 10000 psi are not used for residential work and are extremely dangerous. Water jet spray at this pressure will cause serious injury and will tear flesh from bone.
Most of the time you will look back and think to yourself, “Why didn’t I Pressure Clean my home sooner?” The results speak for themselves. And one major plus is that the results last. It will often take years for the surfaces to get really dirty again. Clean it once and it will likely last a year, oftentimes longer!
