Rent a pressure washer?

Is it possible to rent a commercial pressure washer?

Check with a pressure washer distributor in your area. You may find one who rents.
Also, many(most?) rental centers have "true" commercial pressure washers to rent. I can't imagine a rental center that wouldn't have pressure washers. Check first with the ones that are more industrial oriented.

Stay safe & hydrated,

Rentals are available. You just have to factor in rental price vs cost of the pressure washer in the long run.

You definately need hot water to remove gum.

I rent units, 175 a day. weekly you get two days free. thats based on a 8 hour day.

The contracts on heavy equipment have meters on the time.

Most all rental company have them, I rent to them when they need one.

I also rent to my local dist when they have a customer who needs one.

not if it is a cold water washer and it will take a while if it is a hot water washer, Commercial cleaning requires more gpm to raise the cleaning effeciency, you need to move fast and move on out of the customersw way and to be profitable

Yes, you can simply hire power washers services. I do it once/twice a year. It's not very expensive (especially taking into account high quality power washers are expensive). You can find some services here:

ask for prices and decide. If you're not going to use it a lot it's definitely the best solution to have it done.

Wink Pressure cleaning

Go to Lowes and get couple gals. of driveway cleaner. Apply with a watering can, swish it around with a broom doing more wok on the bad spots, then pressure wash it off. Hope this helps.

Sorry to dig up an old thread...

You can do monthly rentals from home depot. In many cases this can be superior to having your own equipment if you line up a few jobs and don't have a ton of money to throw at another machine.

Yeah, you can definitely rent. I know you already passed that stage. Just to give you a heads up, renting is convenient if you use a pressure washer very little over the year!

I think especially for certain surfaces such as a stamped concrete driveway, it would be best to rent a commercial grade pressure washer or else hire a professional company. The grooves would be tough to get clean.
