Should I Rent a Hot Water or Cold Water Pressure Washer?

A pressure washer (power washer) machine is the the ideal way to clean large surfaces quickly and efficiently. Typical rental pressure washers range in power from 3,500 psi to 4,000 psi and are powerful enough to handle the toughest and dirtiest of jobs - like stripping years of grime from metal, peeling loose paint from wood, cleaning gutters, scouring garbage cans, revitalizing wooden decks, and cleaning those stubborn BBQ grills. These high-powered models can also be used to clean bridges, construction vehicles, equipment, building facades and more.

Psi's aside, the most important factor when choosing a pressure washer for rent or purchase is whether to opt for hot or cold models.

Pros: Cold water pressure washers are generally the cheaper option. They are also somewhat less effective then hot water pressure washers. In terms of cost, both initial and maintenance, they are cheaper than their hot water counterparts. They also tend to be significantly smaller and lighter, making them ideal for confined spaces or when maneuverability is a factor.

Cons: These machines are slightly less efficient and lack the ability to remove grease and oil as well as hot water pressure washers. If you will be handling oily jobs like cleaning grills or engine work, these machines may not be the right tool for your job.

Uses: Anything that does not involve oil or grease like removing mud, sand, stripping paint, etc.

Pros: The best analogy for understanding the difference between hot water and cold water pressure washers is the difference between washing dishes in hot vs. cold water. Try to wash dishes with only soap and cold water  and you'll be left with a film of grease that's tough to make disappear. Greasy pipes and oily concrete are the same way. Without extremely hot water, you'll never remove that final layer of oily residue.

Hot water pressure washers do more than battle greasy, oily clean-up jobs. Hot water pressure washers can heat up water to up to 200 degrees Fahrenheit, disintegrating muck and grime while producing hot steam ideal for killing germs. They are generally the best machine for getting any job done both quickly and thoroughly.

Cons: These units are more complex and therefore larger and more difficult to move around. They also require more maintenance and have a higher base price. 

Uses: Projects tackling grease and oil like engine work, food related jobs, and piping.

Durante Rentals Wins the ICIC and Fortune Magazine Inner City 100 Award for the Second Consecutive Year

Durante Ranks 26th out of 100 Winners with a 5-Year Growth Rate of 386%

Bronx, NY, September 27th, 2016 – Durante Rentals, one of the country’s leading providers of construction equipment and tool rentals, has been selected as a 2016 Inner City 100 Award winner by the Initiative for a Competitive Inner City (ICIC) and Fortune magazine. This is Durante Rentals second consecutive selection to the prestigious list that ranks and showcases the fastest-growing urban businesses in America.

ICIC’s and Fortune’s Inner City 100 List features high-powered, high-potential businesses from

around the country with headquarters in inner cities. The ICIC defines inner cities as core urban areas with higher unemployment and poverty rates and lower median incomes than their surrounding metropolitan statistical area. Each company is selected by ICIC with help from a national network of nominating partners who seek to identify, spotlight, and further enable innovative urban entrepreneurship.

With a rank of 26th, Durante Rentals bested last year’s ranking of 33rd on the list of 100 with reported 2015 revenue of $15.93 million and a five-year growth rate of 386%. “We are thrilled that once again, Durante Rentals has been listed as one of Fortune’s Inner City 100,” said Chief Financial Officer, Christopher Jones. “Every day our team works extremely hard to bring our business to the next level, and it is a real honor to have that hard work recognized by such an impactful organization,” said Christopher.

The winners and their respective rankings were announced at the Inner City 100 Conference and Awards in Boston, where winners gathered for a full-day event featuring thought-provoking sessions, insightful leadership advice and robust networking opportunities. Winners were celebrated for their roles in providing innovation and job creation in America’s underrepresented communities. “It has been a real thrill to watch, as in just a few years, our business has grown into the largest privately-owned equipment rental company in NYC,” said CEO, Anthony Durante. “We are proud of the impact our company has had on the lives of our employees and the inner city communities, like the Bronx and Mt. Vernon where we operate, and we look forward to an even brighter future,” said Anthony.

Boasting an average five-year growth rate of 458% between 2011 and 2015, the 2016 Inner City 100 winners represent a wide span of geography, hailing from 42 cities and 25 states. Collectively, the winners employed 7,324 people in 2015, and on average over a third of their employees live in the same neighborhood as the company.
