Can a Pressure Washer Get Wet?

A pressure washer is a tool that uses high-pressure water for outdoor cleaning, including removal of loose paint, dust, dirt, debris and other grimes from a surface or an item.

Regardless of the brand, all pressure washers are made to handle a little bit of water. After all, with the powerful spray of water coming from its nozzle, it is impossible for this tool not to get wet.

One of the main issues about using a pressure washer in the rain is that the moisture from the rain may cause damage to the motor of the machine, causing it to malfunction.

If your pressure washer is gas-powered and you’re going to store it for a long time, it is best to remove the gasoline from the machine while it is stored.

When used in freezing conditions, such as in winter, the presence of snow and ice can harm the internal components of the machine. During these times, make sure to store your pressure washer somewhere dry.
