One of the biggest concerns from many of our clients is wondering if our power washing services are EPA compliant. A resounding "YES they are." Pictured below is one of our power washing trailers which features a very high end vacuum that is capable of reclaiming, recycling, and reusing our dirty wash water. With this vacuum which is produced by hydrotek, called the azv88, we are able to keep our oily and dirty water from entering the local storm drains.
Also, some of our trailer are able carry over 300 gallons of fresh water so that we have extended cleaning periods which is not only convenient for us but also for our customers as we can finish the job in a more timely manner when there is not a local water source.
When a local Los Angeles, CA art gallery came to their place of business to see some awful remarks tagged on the wall adjacent to their retail entrance, they knew they had to get it cleaned fast. They called us and we offered same day service. Within a few hours, we were coning off a work area, and cleaning the crude remarks off the block wall.
Even though the art gallery had some black spray paint to cover the graffiti or tag on the wall, they wanted to get the surface cleaned back to original condition.
When we are contacted to remove graffiti from an unpainted masonry surface, our standard procedure is to remove the graffiti by washing techniques, not by covering the graffiti with a coat of paint that almost matches the surrounding area.
Pictured below is a concrete cleaning device called a surface cleaner. Below the aluminum shroud is a swivel that spins 2 or more high pressure nozzles at high speed which allows us to clean concrete or other flat surfaces at much greater speed and efficiency than traditional wand methods would allow. This particular project took our team 9 days as we washed all of the common walkways through out 4 large complexes in Irvine, CA.
The picture below is an example of the traditional wand cleaning methods. Although this method can provide a deeper clean and is more effective at removing some objects such as gum and paint, it also cleans slower and often with more unevenness than the surface cleaning devise.
Some power wash operators make the mistake of buying a wand that is not long enough to allow a pressure washing technician to clean comfortably and while standing upright. Our wand in the picture below is 56" long, which is far more comfortable than the common 36" wand found with many part-time power wash contractors.
Sometimes you run across something that you were not expecting that totally makes your day. Today was just that type of thing. Matt and I were cleaning out some of the old trash and other gross stuff that accumulates behind the right field "out of town" scoreboard at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, CA when we found an old baseball. Being big baseball fans, finding an old Major League Baseball is always a keepsake.
Behind the old cracker jacks and spilt beer, the baseball lies in wait.
