Mobile Power Washing System for Heavy Equipment
Power washing equipment is something that you’ll likely encounter more than you might think. Whether you’re a small business owner maintaining your fleet of trucks and trailers, or a large logistics firm looking to maintain the appearance of its trucks daily, you’ll find yourself doing a lot of it. If you’re anything like the vast majority of businesses out there, you’re probably looking to cut costs wherever you can without sacrificing your business’s standards of hygiene and appearance. This is where a mobile power washing system comes in. They’re the perfect solution for keeping your equipment looking its best and at a fraction of hiring a full-time janitorial staff. Let’s look at how you can choose the right mobile power washing system for your heavy equipment.
What is a Mobile Power Washing System?
A mobile power washing system is a device that is designed to clean, polish, and sanitize all types of surfaces. Typically, these machines are built for cleaning vehicles. For this reason, they’re typically smaller than traditional power washing systems. The best part? They’re also much cheaper and easier to operate than their larger counterparts–making them perfect for small businesses with tight budgets that need to keep their equipment looking its best.
Types of Mobile Power Washer Systems
There are many different types of mobile power washing systems to choose from. The first is a simple pump and extractor. This type is excellent for small-scale businesses, like car dealerships and mechanics that only need to wash one or two vehicles each day. However, if you’ve got a slightly larger business with five or more vehicles that must be washed daily, this system might not be the right choice. An engine-driven unit with an integral pump would be the best option for someone with an extensive fleet needing cleaning. This system will provide you with plenty of water pressure to get the job done. There are also some portable power washers available on the market with an electric motor built-in, saving on installation costs by eliminating the need for expensive gas lines.
How a Mobile Power Washing System Works
To make your trucks and trailers look clean, you will need a mobile power washing system. This hose attaches to your truck or trailer and sprays high-pressure water at it to remove dirt and grime. The pressure of the water can be adjusted depending on what you need to clean, but in general, pressure should be set to produce jet-like affect water. The most important thing is that the nozzle fits nicely on the equipment to spray off all the dirt and grime. You will then want to use a squeegee or a brush to scrub off any remaining dirt before clearing the equipment with clear water.
What We Know
There are many different types of mobile power washing systems on the market. It’s essential to understand the pros and cons of each class to make the best decision for your heavy equipment. For example, if you have a lot of equipment and need to wash them regularly, you may consider a trailer system. The trailer has a built-in pump mounted on the trailer and connected to a hose reel. This system is also easy to maneuver and stored easily in a small space.
A mobile power washing system is an investment that you’ll want to ensure will last for years to come. When looking at your equipment, think about what type of paint or chemicals it is made of and the size and shape. You’ll also want to consider your budget and how often you’ll use it. You can find the right mobile power washing system for your equipment with these considerations in mind!
