The Importance of Regular Pressure Cleaner Servicing for Longevity and Reliability

Regular servicing of your pressure cleaner is essential for maintaining your equipment and ensuring a long and reliable lifespan. At Jetblaster, we have been servicing all brands, makes, and models of pressure cleaners since the early 1980s. Our extensive experience with both older and newer machines enables us to address any issues our clients may have. If parts are still available for your machine, rest assured that we can fix it.

A basic service for your pressure cleaner is a simple yet crucial process that can save you significant time and money in the long run. It typically involves oil changes, filter changes, and spark plug changes (for engine-driven machines), as well as inspecting and repairing any leaks, testing accessories for wear, and conducting a comprehensive inspection to ensure your machine is operating at optimal specifications.

To prevent the oil from losing its viscosity and damaging the pump, it is recommended that you service or replace the oils in your pressure cleaner every 100 to 150 hours. Additionally, regular inspection of your machine—such as checking the filters and oil levels—can help prevent major failures and costly repairs.

Don’t ignore water leaks, as even a small leak can escalate into a larger issue, leading to major repairs and problems. Address leaks promptly to maintain the efficiency and longevity of your equipment. Another critical aspect of proper maintenance is ensuring that your machine always has sufficient water supply. Running the machine without adequate water can cause cavitation and damage the pump’s internal components, resulting in expensive repairs.

If your pressure cleaner is left running without the trigger being pulled, make sure it is either connected to a large header tank or switched off. Allowing the machine to run in this state causes the water to circulate back through the pump head, which can heat the water and damage the pump’s internals over time.

In summary, regular servicing, maintenance, and proper handling of your pressure cleaner are essential for a long and reliable service life. By investing in the upkeep of your equipment, you’ll save time, money, and effort in the long run, ensuring that your pressure cleaner remains a valuable asset for your cleaning needs. Trust Jetblaster’s expertise and experience to help you maintain your equipment at its peak performance.
