Why is it important to pressure-wash a runway?

Where the Rubber Meets the Runway

With all those take-offs and landings, airplanes leave a big mess behind on the airport runways that could lead to a very slippery, and therefore, dangerous situation. Fortunately, this rubber build-up can be removed easily and safely.

Using high pressure water jetting or water blasting equipment removes the build up of rubber making landing and taking off from the cleaned runway much safer. There are no harsh chemical agents involved to present other potential problems.

Airport safety is a concern for most people, yet many never consider how dangerous the runway can be when there is a buildup of rubber lurking on the runway.
