5 Factors You Need To Know For A Consistent 2-Step Wash

For some of the newer guys to the fleet washing industry, we wanted to share some advice that will help you save a lot of money, time, and headaches while getting into this phenomenal industry.

No matter the soaps you use, you will NEVER be 100% touchless all the time.

There are 5 factors to learn and memorize when you want to achieve “consistent” touchless cleaning results. This will allow you to be efficient and give you the highest ROI. Below are those 5 factors;

  1. You MUST be blending and using SOFT water for fleet washing. At the very least, blend your chemicals with soft water.

  2. HIGH pressure soap application will save you time and cut down on your soap usage compared to typical low pressure soap application.

  3. You must have the capability of using warm to hot water while 2-step fleet washing. (Roughly 100 – 120 degrees Fahrenheit)

  4. Adequate dwell time for the soaps to dig into the surface and do their job – minimizing your use of the brush.

  5. Finally, understanding your dilution ratio on your pressure washer.

Understanding these 5 factors when you are trying to achieve “consistent” touchless cleaning while fleet washing will only benefit you.

Does this mean that IF you don’t have ALL 5 factors accounted for prior to starting to 2-step wash that you can’t move forward with this choice?

NO it’s does not.

Just realize that if you don’t have all 5 factors in place for your fleet washing business, then you will need to pick-up the brush a little more often.

UNDERSTANDING these 5 factors will go a long way in making your mobile fleet washing business MORE profitable!
