Clean windows and perform repairs after buildings close for the day.
Professional Pressure Washers handle heavy equipment, which they use to wash other, heavier equipment. A Pressure Washer is in charge of operating a high-pressure cleaner and blasting off grease, dirt, and what have you off of everything, from a piece of machinery to a city sidewalk.
The things you wash as a Pressure Washer include large equipment, concrete areas, buildings and windows, and perhaps even planes and trains. Occasionally, you may work in a hazardous material site to clean and secure an area according to particular safety standards. This kind of work requires a set of rules and specifications separate from pressure washing work, as haz-mat sites have to comply with state laws and regulations.
This is a great job for someone who likes to work with heavy machinery, and enjoys seeing immediate manifestations of their work. In this job, there’s no waiting period. Your time and labor immediately translates into a clean sidewalk, for example. Not every job gives you that kind of immediate satisfaction.
Once you have enough experience under your belt, you may get your choice in job assignments. You can work outdoors completely if that’s what you desire, or you can choose to handle particular kinds of heavy machinery. However, to get to the position of Shift Manager or higher, you’ll most likely need a higher level of education.
