One way for many shipowners to try to reduce the impact of bad sea water on their ships is to clean their ships under pressure. Pressure cleaning vessels are an effective way to remove dirt, algae growth and other dirt from the surface. However, pressure cleaning is a task that needs to be performed correctly to avoid harm to the ship or to yourself.

Why should the ship be cleaned under pressure?
There are many ways to clean a ship, but there are few ways to clean a ship as quickly, effectively and easily as pressure cleaning. Pressure cleaning is a good way to remove salt from the surface of a ship. It's also a good way to clean places that are hard to reach, because the water column of the pressure washer can reach areas you can't reach.

Good ship cleaning requires first washing and then proper cleaning with soap, but adjust the pressure level of the pressure washer, which can be used for pre-rinsing and actual cleaning. Many pressure cleaners also have a rotating brush, which is perfect for cleaning ships with soap.

If you do not clean the ship under pressure, all scrubbing and cleaning work needs to be done manually with a sponge. For pre-washing and rinsing, the washing boat is the best choice. For best results, you need a hose accessory that allows you to spray water onto the ship at higher pressure. These accessories are usually cheap and should be easy to buy from local stores.

The problem with manual cleaning of vessels without any pressure cleaning equipment is that there are obvious limitations. You need to use a ladder to clean all the places you can't reach. The water pressure you get from the hose is not enough to flush the high area of the ship, so you may even need to use a ladder during the flushing process.

Pressure cleaner for cleaning ship.
Pressure cleaning is quite simple, and many shipowners choose to do it themselves. To clean your ship with pressure, you need to buy or rent a pressure cleaner. Be sure to buy a machine suitable for the job.

You need to buy household high-pressure cleaners instead of industrial-grade high-pressure cleaners. Industrial strength pressure cleaners are not suitable for use on your ship because they are mainly used for heavy-duty work, such as removing oil stains from paved areas and other high-intensity work.

Light machines are suitable for small jobs around the home. They can be used to clean small decks or courtyards, or even exterior walls. These high-pressure cleaners are not ideal for cleaning ships, with the only exception being very small vessels. If the high-pressure cleaner cannot clean some parts, you can easily wipe off any dirt left behind.

Medium-sized high-pressure cleaners are very suitable for accomplishing most tasks at home. Under low-voltage settings, they are very suitable for cleaning vehicles such as cars, trucks and ships.

Specification for high pressure cleaning machine.
It is important to choose a high-pressure cleaner with multiple pressure settings. This will allow you to switch between low-voltage and high-voltage adjustments for different tasks. Even if you choose a medium pressure cleaner to pressure clean your ship, it does not necessarily mean that the pressure range is ideal.

You can also use different high-pressure cleaner accessories and nozzles, such as rotary brush heads for scrubbing dirt, trigger gun nozzles for easy control of water flow, and various nozzles suitable for daily use.

You must also choose a safe soap or detergent to use before pressure cleaning your ship. In order to protect the fiberglass outside the ship, it is best to choose a detergent that does not contain ammonia. Please also check the high pressure cleaner instruction manual for more information about which detergents are suitable for use with the equipment.

It is best to choose environmentally friendly, mild detergents, as using them can prevent damage to grass and other plants on the land around your busy place.

Finally, to use a high-pressure cleaner with soap, you need to have a chemical injection kit. If you rent a machine, you probably already have a chemical syringe kit installed, just ask the staff of the equipment rental company to show you how to use it. Installing a chemical injection kit on your own machine may be more complex and require some calculations, but you should be able to do this with enough research.

How to clean the ship under pressure.
Once you have the right high-pressure cleaners, nozzles and cleaners to get the job done, the pressure cleaning boat will actually be very simple. However, before you begin, you should know that good safety precautions must be taken. The water column of the high-pressure cleaner is powerful enough to cause injury, so do not put your hand in front of the water column to test the pressure.

You can follow the following steps to clean your ship under high pressure:

Gently flush your boat in a low pressure setting to remove sand, debris and dust particles from the surface. If you prefer, you can perform this step without any detergent.

Before cleaning at higher pressure, add soap and connect the pressure cleaning soap nozzle to your machine.

Let the detergent sit for a few minutes. In the meantime, be sure to keep the surface of the ship wet.

To remove mold and algae, you can use rotary brushes for high-pressure cleaning machine accessories.

After cleaning all the dirt and stains, it's time to rinse off the soap. You can do this by connecting the trigger nozzle. Walk around the boat and rinse from top to bottom.

When cleaning your ship under pressure, you should remember to clean the trailer and engine at the same time. Please be careful around the motor and try not to let any soap into it.

When to get the ship pressure cleaning service.
It is feasible to clean the ship under high pressure yourself, and it is easy to learn, but don't underestimate the task. It really takes a lot of effort to understand all the context of pressure cleaning. Pressure cleaning in the right way takes time to learn. Most importantly, putting all the necessary equipment together is a daunting task in itself.

Many people like to learn how to clean things under pressure and buy their own pressure cleaners. Even if you want to learn how to do pressure cleaning, your boat is not a good place to start learning. Mistakes can damage your ship, which is much more expensive to repair than hiring a professional.

If you are interested in cleaning things under high pressure yourself, you'd rather start with surfaces that are more vulnerable to damage, such as your driveway, and leave other areas to professionals until you are familiar with all the equipment. Practicing in advance can not only save money, but also avoid accidental injuries.

If you are not familiar with high-pressure cleaning, it is recommended to ask a professional to help clean your ship.
