5 reasons to opt for scheduled maintenance for your pressure washers

If your business relies on pressure washers, the last thing you want is for one of your units to suddenly become inoperable. The best way avoid this inconvenient situation is to sign up for a scheduled maintenance program. Here are five reasons you should.


  1. You’ll avoid expensive repairs

Without regular maintenance, you run the risk of your equipment failing and being unusable until it can be fixed. Furthermore, repairs can be expensive. In most cases, the cost of repairs in combination the with the losses caused by downtime will be greater than the price of scheduled maintenance.

  1. You’ll keep your workers safe

Power washers can be extremely dangerous, especially if they aren’t maintained properly. Forgoing regular inspections puts your employees at risk of serious and potentially fatal injuries. Investing in a scheduled maintenance plan mitigates these risks and helps ensure worker safety.

  1. You’ll save money

Over time, power washers become less efficient. This can happen for a number of reasons, including lime buildup in the coil and a sticking unloader. Less efficient washers need more electricity or gas to operate, which ends up costing you more money in the long run.

  1. You’ll protect your investment

A pressure washer is a costly piece of equipment. Keeping yours in good shape with scheduled maintenance will considerably increase its lifespan. Failing to do so will likely result in frequent problems, poor functioning and increased strain on the components. Even if you don’t need to replace it, you’ll likely have to swap out components, which could end up costing more than a new washer.

  1. You’ll help your business grow

Whatever sector you operate in, ensuring that your equipment is in top shape and performing optimally is one of the most important things you can do to maintain your business’ profitability. Plus, if your employees know you’re dedicated to workplace safety, they’ll work better and more efficiently.
