January 15, 2010, Newsletter Issue #202: How to Pressure Wash your Truck or Trailer

Tip of the Week

If you are an owner-operator or if your company owns a fleet of commercial vehicles, it may turn out to be more cost effective to buy your own pressure washer instead of paying to wash a vehicle each time.

To wash a large trailer you will need power washing equipment of 2000 psi or more. Truck power washing is a big task, but heavy-duty pressure washing units will make the job quick and efficient.

Use a good quality pressure washer cleaner. First spray the whole trailer and then go back and work in sections, first with soap and then rinsing with water. For areas that are heavy with grease or oil you can use a degreaser and let it presoak before starting. Work from top to bottom and rinse generously with fresh water when you are done.
