A lot is made of flat surface cleaners and how they’ve enriched the lives of people who run professional pressure washing companies, but personally, while I think they are useful, they are also overrated.



What Exactly is an FSC

A FSC connects to your pressure washer. Under the yellow part in the picture it shows you there is a rotary cleaning head, (not to be confused with a rotary nozzle/turbo nozzle) which is basically a metal bar with two (sometimes more) nozzles at either end. The rotary cleaning head spins round extremely fast when pressurised water is pumped through it by your pressure washer.

These spinning motions that the nozzles perform allow you to clean a larger area more quickly than if you’d just used a lance. 


Not as Fast as You Might Think

When cleaning with an FSC there is a lot they can’t do, they don’t remove all the dirt, particularly stuff like moss, and they can’t get into corners or do edges. You’ll also still need your lance for rinsing away all the standing puddles of dirt/mud that has been loosened by the FSC.  

What happens usually is you use your FSC to quickly get the majority of the dirt off. Afterwards you spend the main bulk of your time going over the area with your lance, rinsing and spot cleaning the things the FSC missed.



A popular brand of FSC is the Whirlaway, there are other brands however, Mosmatic is another popular one. Both the Whirlaway and Mosmatic can be purchased in different sizes.
