If, like us, you spend any amount of time watching car content online, you’ll probably have seen cool videos of cars being covered in snow foam. It’s not just for serious detailers though, it’s something that anyone with a pressure washer/hose and a foam gun can do.
What Are Foam Cannons?
Foam cannons, guns, lances, sprays, etc. are all interchangeable words in this context - they all refer to a device which attaches to your pressure washer and mixes car wash shampoo with high-pressure water to create a thick ‘snow foam’. You can even get foam guns that attach to your hose or air compressor - or simple ones you can pump up and spray manually!
There are different types of snow foam car wash solutions. Some are just for cleaning while others add a layer of protection while you wash. In most cases, the same shampoo you use in the wash bucket will work equally well in a foam cannon, while in other cases a brand will have dedicated products for each purpose. Make sure to check so you aren’t disappointed the first time you fire up the foam cannon!
What Are The Benefits Of Using A Foam Gun?
Aside from adding some frothy fun into your wash process, using a foam cannon actually has some serious benefits. First and foremost, snow foam helps soften a lot of the baked-on grime, allowing you to blast it off more effectively with your pressure washer or hose.
Why does this matter? When you go to clean the car with your wash mitt, there’s a lot less road grime which could potentially scratch your paint. Removing this grime before touching the car means your hand washing stage is both safer and more effective (not to mention quicker!). Secondly, snow foam is an easy way to help keep all the nooks and crannies clean that you might otherwise miss with your wash mitt.
Overall, you should definitely utilise Foam Guns to your wash process for a number of reasons:
- Use What the Professionals use, as detailers use foam guns day in-day out due to their array of benefits.
- Make Washing Heaps Safer with snow foam, ensuring your hand washing stage is quicker as well!
- Easier To Apply Protection which is quicker and can apply protection to the entire vehicle.
- Premium Quality & Durable design that will last for years!
- Plain and simple – it’s fun!
You know all the benefits, but how does it actually work? The secret is that the snow foam mixture used inside the foam gun is much more concentrated than what you have in your wash bucket, making it a powerful cleaning tool when you add in high pressure water.
