Cleaning heavy equipment is necessary for all construction equipment. Clean equipment lasts longer and pressure washing protects your investment by removing mud, grease and grime from heavy equipment faster than other cleaning methods. Cleaning heavy equipment is an underappreciated chore. It’s messy and often delegated to a low-paid laborer on construction crews who see the job as just hosing down dirty machinery to remove most of the grease and grime. Well, there’s far more to effectively and efficiently cleaning construction equipment and machinery than meets the eye.
Heavy equipment washing requires its own specialized equipment like water cannons or pressure washers. It also involves specific techniques that make the best use of cleaning time and materials. And then there’s the safety factor to consider. Heavy construction equipment like excavators, loaders and gravel trucks are large, complicated machines presenting hazards to operators and those tasked to clean them on a regular basis.
