Best Electric Pressure Washer For Home Use
Get addicted to cleaning your home!
Choosing the Best Electric Pressure Washer for home use can be a great way to keep your home, patio and outdoor items looking great!
Last year I decided I was tired of paying someone else to come and wash the black spots off the north side of my home, the residue of pine trees off the driveway and the oxidation off my patio furniture. I decided on getting my own pressure washer so I could save some money in the long run.
I purchased this GreenWorks Electric Pressure Washer from my local home improvement store, and I love it!
I can’t believe how addicting these machines are! I have cleaned my decks, patio furniture, gas grill, driveway, the house, our daughters outdoor toys, lawn chairs, the lawnmower and the shed.
I’ve got a bunch more things to still get to, but there are only so many hours in the day and we do like to enjoy some family time as well.
Using No Chemicals – Electric Power Washers Clean Great!
The left corner shows the deck after just a few minutes of spraying the wooden deck boards down. I used a back and forth even motion, as when I was using short strokes, the cleaning was much more uneven and if you hold it in one place too long you can actually start to eat into the wood – this thing is mighty powerful!
The Greenworks model I bought has 1500 PSI and uses 1.3 gallons of water per minute. There are more powerful electric pressure washer models, but I find this one to be more than sufficient for our household cleaning chores. It really just ‘melts’ through the grime, oxidation and brought my deck back to an almost like new condition. You can actually still see the green of the pressure treated lumber!
I am more than thrilled with the performance of my Greenworks Electric Pressure Washer. I like the electric part – no messing with gas engines or mixing oil for it. Just plug it in and attach the hose – choose one of the three nozzles then turn it on and go. Clean away!
Would I say that the Greenworks model I have is the Best Electric Pressure Washer for home use?
But I will say it does a great job, I love the results it gives me and the price was right. There are probably other models that may be more efficient with water consumption or more powerful. But I can say that it does the jobs I need it to do, does not have any major design flaws that impede my cleaning projects and I am very satisfied with my purchase.
There are a few things about this model that I am not so crazy about – but they really are not major issues. I thought I would like the low profile design better than an upright one – It doesn’t hinder the performance at all, but in tight places, the upright would take up less space – the low profile lays down sort of like an old canister vacuum does. And it sometimes is a little awkward to move around smoothly. If I ever have to replace this one – I will probably go with the upright style instead.
Best Electric Pressure Washer For Home Use Choices
I really didn’t research a lot before I bought my electric pressure washer – I happened to be in our local home improvement store buying plants for my deck, and came across the Greenworks one I bought – spur of the moment buying is not always the best way to shop for such big ticket items. Yes, I did get lucky with the model I chose, but it could have been a piece of junk.
Usually when I go shopping for big items that cost more than $50 or so, I do my homework. So if you’re in the market for the best electric pressure washer for home use, there are many brands and models to choose from. I did some research on Amazon.com and here is some of the most popular and top rated models available.
