Power washing (or pressure washing) vehicles, outdoor equipment and buildings keeps vehicles looking good, but also well maintained. Fleet maintenance managers across industries should follow environmentally-responsible procedures and regulations to maximize overall positive outcomes. Consider how often you need to collect and properly handle the water used when washing a large, consistently dirty fleet of vehicles or equipment.
Regardless of industry, industrial vehicles and equipment often collect contaminants while in use in the field. When washed, contaminants from these machines run off in to storm drains and bodies of water if not properly contained. Once in the water, these contaminants affect water quality and harm plants, animals and people. Discharging detergent-free hot water to simply rinse fleets also causes negative effects.
Make sure you have a plan to manage the dirt, oil, grease and other contaminants that you remove from surfaces when washing. Keep your workforce and the environment safe by incorporating best practices into standard operating instructions for both mobile and stationary power washing. This preparation keeps pressure washing jobs on schedule, while preventing costly cleanup or remediation bills.

"I have been installing Poly Dike MPE Systems for well over a year. My business requires a system that ships easily and installs quickly with minimal personnel and tools yet provides robust spill containment in a professional looking package. The MPE System not only meets, but exceeds my expectations in each of these areas ... All-in-all, I guess what’s most impressive is that after a single installation, every customer of mine now requires that I use the Poly Dike MPE for his job site. Nothing speaks more to the confidence me and my customers have in the MPE system than that."
