K2 Waterwerx, LLC. uses state of the art
power washing equipment
We use a Hot Water Pressure Washing
system. The reasons that we use a hot water pressure washing system are:
Hot water packs a powerful energetic punch
when released into the cleaning equation. This energy also causes a reduction in
the water’s surface tension allowing it to easily and more effectively penetrate
the molecules of grease and grime.
Actually, there are three key elements to
a hot water pressure washer —heat, agitation and soap—that successfully remove
grease and grime. Here’s how they work:
- Heat, as described above,
creates a high-speed molecular action that causes the cleaning agent to be
more active and reduces water’s surface tension so it can effectively
penetrate grime at the molecular level.
- Agitation is the impact that
comes from the water volume and water pressure hitting the surface—similar
to the action of hand scrubbing the dinner plate in your kitchen sink.
- Soap (often referred to by
pressure washer users as “detergent”) chemically breaks the bond between
dirt and the surface. It starts when the molecules of oil and grease attach
themselves to dirt and keep them trapped or bound to the surface. Detergents
use softening agents, technically referred to as “surfactants” (an
abbreviation for “surface active reagents”) to emulsify the oil and
grease—this is the process in which two or more immiscible liquids, like oil
and water, no longer repel each other but actually mix. Once the oil and
water are able to mix forming an emulsion, the dirt—still clinging to the
oil and grease—is carried away in the wash water.
So what does all of this have to do with a hot water
Hot water pressure washers bring together a perfect balance of all three of
these key elements—heat, agitation and soap—to deliver a pressure cleaning
knockout punch. (From HOTSY corporate site)
