Keeping buses clean serves many purposes. From making the journey pleasant for commuters to eliminating potential health hazards, reduce corrosion, enhance the life of the machinery, and eliminate odors, there is a need to keep the buses clean. There are also Department of Transportation (DOT) rules to follow, which link bus safety to some extent with sanitation inside buses and cleaning of the exterior surfaces.
Clean buses also help build a good image, whether you are a business that is offering shuttle service to customers or hiring out fleet to other businesses. That is why it is important to choose the correct bus cleaning equipment. Bus pressure washing is usually one of the faster, more effective ways of eliminating grime, oils, grease, soot, insects, and other impurities from bus exteriors and interiors.
The bus exteriors need to be cleaned thoroughly to remove grime, grease, and rust. Besides these substances, often, decals are found on the external surfaces of buses. Some types of pressure washing equipment support wet sandblasting as an optional feature. These machines can be used for the removal of smaller flecks of rust.
The tires are also among the more grimy external surfaces of buses. The wheel lugs, treads, and other parts tend to become very dirty, and cleaning them is of utmost importance, so as to pass inspection. The doors must also be cleaned and the engine covers should be degreased.
The license plate, spare tires, chassis, should be cleaned regularly. The chassis area may be greasy due to oil leaks, and the grease should be removed using the right bus cleaning equipment, with pressure levels between 1000-1500 PSI and tri mode temperatures, to allow for flexibility in setting the water temperature for bus washing.
School buses offer more challenges in terms of cleaning, since germs can be easily transmitted from dirty surfaces to children. Handrails, seats, windows, bus steps, bus aluminum floor, hangers, driver cabins, seat covers, and all are particularly grimy and need to be cleaned effectively. Good equipment eliminates most of the grime on these surfaces, preventing germs and thus ensuring safety of children.
Bus interiors can also be cleaned using pressure washers. Vacuuming removes some minor, loose, dry dirt, but for cleaning heavy layers of grime, you will need to use bus cleaning equipment with high pressure levels. The machines are used for cleaning hangers and the driver's cabin.
Pressure washers eliminate grime from aluminum floors as well. Since floors are often the dirtiest surfaces inside the bus, a high pressure bus cleaning machine is the most appropriate tool for cleaning.
Pressure washers are also useful for onsite bus washing. Bus cleaning machines can be mounted on trailers for easy transportation. They offer a choice of power methods, so you can use the machines depending on electricity or fuel availability. Daimer® machines offer a range of power options, from diesel to propane and gasoline.
