All positive pressure washers have some force of water on their output suction. Pressure washers are also getting quieter, though at the same time are not powerful enough to clean really dirty soiled surfaces like carpets and upholstery. Probably because most of their power is applied on the sand filter along with a spray, which results in more noise pollution compared to those above showerhead.
Quiet and effective pumps that can power any household to clear anything from dust mites, allergies to boilers and cars are now a common household comforts. However, the benefits of these pumps have yet to reach all regions of the world, particularly those countries not blessed with dry southern deserts.
They are quiet and can be operated with the push of a button. However, these pressure washers are not as efficient as they could be. They also have to work at high pressures for long periods, which is a lot more work than what is required by people who live in small apartments.
Some of these quiet machines are:
- GreenWorks Pressure Washers
These have compact designs, which reduce the size of the units and increases their operating efficiency in terms of energy consumption and weight, so that they can operate for longer periods without needing replacement parts. This makes it suitable for commercial use as well as residential use; in addition to their noise reduction features.
- Sun Joe Spx 3001 2030 Pressure washer
These machines are very powerful because of their high pressure and high speed. The main feature of these machines is that they can clean any material with ease.
- AR383 Blue Cleaner
A blue cleaner is a high-pressure washer that can be used for cleaning everything from car seats to shoes. The same blue cleaner can be used on the interior of a car, which means that it has the ability to clean up stains and dirt.
Why Are Some Pressure Washers So Noisy?
The noise level of a pressure washer is around 70dB and it can be heard from outside the building. This noise is created by a high pressure pump that creates a large amount of water while cleaning the surface. The problem with this kind of equipment is that it is not very durable and can wear out quickly if not taken care of properly. The noise produced by these machines can also be felt by people who live nearby, which makes them quite annoying especially during holiday seasons or when they are used during night time hours.
The design of pressure washers should be improved to lessen their noise level so that it doesn’t disturb other people’s sleep. It should also be possible for users to turn off the pump noise in order to save electricity. Even though pressure washers are designed for professional use, users sometimes manage it wrongly because they don’t appreciate its utility. They don’t realize that their pressure washer isn’t working properly even when it is on the verge of breaking down.
The noise-sensitive valve of the pressure washer is one of the most common reasons for the noise-induced hearing loss. Therefore, it is important to remove this noise source from your home or office by installing an acoustic seal on your pressure washer.
