The pressure washing industry can trace its roots back to 1926 and the glory days of prohibition. Frank W. Ofeldt II, an employee of a Pennsylvanian producer of gas-fired water heaters and boilers and a maker of whisky stills, is credited as the inventor of pressure washing. It was quite by accident, while working on a whisky still, that he discovered that steam forced at high pressure through a small hose provided an effective method of cleaning grease off his garage floor. He began a crusade to create a cleaning contraption that would mix this new-fangled wet steam with chemicals……Cleaner Times
The Hypressure Jenny Was the first High Pressure cleaner. Frank’s father invented the first gasoline-propelled motor-boat (F. W. Ofeldt)
this was the first known use of gasoline for transportation, since it was before the Automobile Industry started, and gasoline at that time was thrown away as a by-product in the manufacture of kerosene. The new Motor-Boat Industry started by Mr. Ofeldt’s invention, therefore, was immediately assisted by Mr. Rockefeller, Flagler, etc., because it represented the first large market for gasoline.
