In Chamblee GA Firehouse washed a 340,000 square foot parking garage under a Wal Mart in 2010. Pressure washing and soft washing Wal-Marts is also a service Firehouse Pressure Washing has performed in the past. It took four crews one week to get the job done. The parking garage walls, and ceiling were soft washed, and the parking garages concrete floor was pressure washed to remove road grime, trash, dirt, debris, gum, etc.
Parking garages with a lot of traffic can get very dirty. Grocery store parking lots are very prone to becoming dirty as well because of all the foot traffic. On top of the foot traffic there is car traffic, with black rubber particles being left behind daily by car tires. Customers also tend to drop their groceries which can lead to all kinds of staining and messes on commercial concrete surfaces. Commercial pressure washing is best performed by professionals because of the scope of work in such a large operation. Often water trucks come in to supply all the pressure washers with water.
At one retail shopping center that Firehouse Pressure Washing cleaned there were three trucks with 3 machines a piece on the rig and that’s a lot of water output. Water also should reclaim if the local municipality requires it. Environmental Protection Agency standards state any concrete with grease and oil needs to be washed in a special process called pressure washing reclamation.
Pressure washing reclamation is a service that Firehouse Pressure Washing offers. Pressure Washing Water Reclamation is a process in which a large vacuum which mounted to the pressure washing apparatus draws the water used by the surface cleaner through a series of filters. These filters have differing micron sizes and working together they filter the particulates out of the water and discharge the water back into the buffer tank so the pressure washer can use it again. Pressure washing water reclamation is another process that is best left to the professionals.
