A pressure washer is a great power tool that can help you easily manage tough cleaning jobs. The best pressure washer for you will depend in part on whether you plan to use it indoors or outdoors. For indoor jobs, choose a washer with an electric motor that uses AC power, since gasoline-powered washers require too much ventilation for indoor use. For outdoor jobs, gasoline-powered models are usually best, since you won't have an extension cord getting in your way.
Also, consider whether you'll be doing light-duty jobs, such as washing your car, your basement, your driveway or aluminum siding, or heavy-duty jobs, such as removing oil from concrete, stripping paint off a house or removing graffitti. For light-duty jobs, you won't need as much water pressure, and a 1000-2000 PSI model will usually do. To strip paint from a metal surface, you'll need 2,500 PSI. For the heaviest jobs, you'll find models up to 5,000 PSI.
