MILWAUKEE, April 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Briggs & Stratton's POWERflow+ technology? makes typical spring cleaning projects, like power washing decks, sidewalks and siding, less intimidating to homeowners, while delivering the ability to clean more than any other pressure washer on the market.

We've taken outdoor cleaning to a whole new level!

"Now that the weather has finally broken, there are tons of outdoor cleaning tasks waiting for today's homeowners," says Deadra Richelle-Purifoy, Marketing for Briggs & Stratton. "Many consumers start their spring cleaning routines with pressure washing the home's exterior siding to get rid of the slush and dirt from a harsh winter season."

In fact, when consumers use their pressure washers to make their home's siding shine, there tends to be a domino effect where consumers find more opportunities to clean around the home. According to a recent survey* of 417 gas pressure washer buyers, the top 10 areas where they would like to use their pressure washer include:

  • Driveways/sidewalks
  • Decks
  • Outside walls/doors
  • Cars/trucks/SUV's/mini-vans
  • Brickwork/masonry
  • Patios/porches
  • Mildew/pollen
  • Garage/building floors
  • Roofs/eaves/gutters
  • Windows

*Conducted by Synovate for Briggs & Stratton

Typical pressure washers are great for deep cleaning tasks such as driveways and decks because of the high power they produce.  However, they tend to be too powerful for delicate items such as vehicles or patio furniture, and they struggle to reach elevated areas of a home such as second story windows or eaves and gutters. Now, with a pressure washer with POWERflow+, consumers can:

  • Boost water and soap up to 30
  • Clean second story windows, eaves and gutters
  • Blast away hard-to-reach cobwebs and insect nests
  • Safely clean your deck patio furniture, or even a delicate glass tabletop
  • Remove the ever-present pollen and mold due to the recent weather changes

POWERflow+ is available now at most Lowe's stores and other select Briggs and Stratton retailers.  To find your closest retailer, go to http://www.briggsandstratton.com/us/en/pressure-washers/powerflow/where-to-buy.

1Both models tested according to Pressure Washer Manufacturer's Association (PWMA) testing procedure PWMA 101 and achieved a maximum PSI rating utilizing a 0 degree nozzle tip and maximum flow (or GPM) rating using a 40 degree nozzle tip.
