Pressure Washer Job Description

A pressure washer is a device that uses high-pressure water to clean surfaces. The water is delivered through a nozzle at high speed, which allows it to remove dirt, dust, grime, and other debris from the surface. Some pressure washers can also be used to dispense detergents or cleaners to help achieve the desired results.
To use a pressure washer, the user attaches the nozzle to the end of a high-pressure hose, and directs it towards the surface that needs cleaning. Some units can also be mounted on vehicles or trailers for mobility. The units are powered using gasoline engines, which run at very high speeds in order to increase water flow. When in use, the engine can burn through gasoline very quickly, so it is important to use an appropriate size to avoid running out of fuel. It’s also important to wear protective gear while operating a pressure washer in order to prevent injury.
The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that jobs for industrial-and commercial-cleaning specialists, including pressure washers, are expected to increase by six percent from 2012-2022. This is slower than the nation’s average job growth rate of seven percent during that time period. In 2013, the median wage for industrial-and commercial-cleaning specialists in the U.S. was $11 per hour or $23,850 per year.
