Types of facility maintenance products available


Our most popular products available in this area fall in the pressure washer and steam cleaner areas. Here is an overview of the difference between them and the tasks they are suited to:



  • A pressure washer is for highly effective outdoor cleaning of especially tough or dirty areas and surfaces, such as:


    • Cars, bikes, caravans and boats

    • Patios, paths, driveways, fences, walls, and house facades

    • Garden tools and machinery, outdoor furniture and barbecues

    • Animal pens and runs


  • Pressure washers usually work as a hybrid of a hose pipe and an air compressor


    • They take a constant supply of mains water and pump it into a piston chamber where it’s forced out again under much higher pressure


  • They can be used with various accessories including nozzles, brushes and attachments, cleaning sprays, o-rings, or trigger grips



  • A steam cleaner is used for powerful and effective cleaning of domestic/commercial carpets, upholstery, soft furnishings, and any suitable surface in need of deep cleaning and sanitising via the removal of dirt, dust, grease or trodden-in grime

  • Unlike pressure washers, steam cleaners are used in direct contact with the surface

  • Steam cleaners use an on-board water tank, which is then heated to produce steam


    • Some cleaners actually boil the water, resulting in drier and hotter steam for optimal cleaning power

    • Others run at cooler temperatures and produce a damper vapour for a ‘washing’ effect on more delicate items and surfaces


  • Steam cleaners are not vacuum cleaners and are not intended for use on very wide areas (unlike the more industrial dedicated steam carpet cleaners)


    • They’re primarily for effective spot-cleaning on particularly dirty or stained areas of carpets, rugs and other items
