Fleet Washing

As a fleet owner, you know that keeping your vehicles clean is essential for maintaining a professional image and protecting your investment. But traditional methods of washing your fleet, such as hosing them down with water and soap, may not be enough to get rid of tough dirt and grime. That's where two-step fleet washing comes in. I run a mobile fleet washing company near Pittsburgh PA . I will go over how we 2 step our fleets.

What is two-step fleet washing?

Two-step fleet washing is a process that involves using two different cleaning agents to wash your fleet. The first step is a low ph. acid that is usually down streamed onto the area desired to be washed. Then a caustic neutralizer is broadcast right over the acid. The chemical reaction between the two cuts through road dirt and grime.

Why use two-step fleet washing?

There are several benefits to using a two-step fleet washing process. First and foremost, it provides a more thorough clean for your vehicles. After 2 stepping a degreaser can also be used for animal fats and grease.

In addition, two-step fleet washing can help extend the life of your vehicles. Dirt and grime can build up over time, which can cause corrosion and other damage to the surface of your vehicles. By using a degreaser to remove this buildup, you can help protect your fleet and keep it in better condition over time.

Finally, two-step fleet washing can help you save time and money in the long run. By using a more effective cleaning process, you can reduce the amount of time and resources you need to spend on washing your fleet. This can help you streamline your operations and focus on other important aspects of running your business.

How to do two-step fleet washing

If you're interested in trying two-step fleet washing for your vehicles, here's a step-by-step guide to the process:

Step 1: Pre-wash

Before you begin the two-step process, it's important to give your vehicles a quick pre-wash to remove any loose dirt and debris. You can do this with a pressure washer or hose. This step will help make the two-step process more effective by removing any loose dirt that could interfere with the degreaser.

Step 2: Apply Part 1

Once you've pre-washed your vehicles, it's time to apply the part 1. You can use a downstream injector to broadcast part one. Most will have it hooked up to an electric ball valve, or utilize a two step gun. Make sure to do manageable areas. Also before applying make sure all glass is wet.

Step 3: Apply Part 2

After you've applied the part 1 low ph acid, you can then apply the part 2 neutralizer right over it. You will be able to see the road dirt begin to bleed right off now.

Step 4: Rinse

Once you apply part 1 and 2 you will need to rinse off with lower pressure. It is important not to let anything dry during the cleaning. Specially the glass. I always start at the windows and mirrors once my line is clear of soap. Just to get them wet again. Then work your way from the top down. If the vehicle has any vinyl's be extra carful no to cause damage with to high of pressure.

Step 5: Apply Degreaser

If the vehicle travels on back service roads, then animal fats are often sprayed down to keep up with dust control. This means you may have to show the vehicle a little more love to get it clean. To remove animal fats you will want to use a degreaser and a soft tipped brush. Simply scrub it like you would when you are cleaning your personal vehicle. Make sure to get full broadcast with the brush or it will show where you do not hit. If you add degreasing to the cleaning process this is more of a 3 step fleet washing technique. If you keep up with your fleets 2 step should work just fine though.
