Excavator Power Washing in Wyckoff, NJ 07481

Terraclean Power Washing, LLC. was called in to clean this large excavator.  At first thought, you may think that it must be very easy to power wash a machine like this.  ”Just blast away”, right?  The problem with blasting away is that there are many areas on a machine like this that you must be very careful cleaning, such as the hydraulic pump area.  If you just use a “home depot” style power washer, the cold water will not cut through the grease and as a result, you will have to get closer to the sensitive areas with the high pressure.  Terraclean applies an organic detergent that softens the grease.  We then use very hot water to “melt” the grease and grime off.  Hot water cleans much better than cold, and as a result, we do not use high pressure in sensitive areas.  This machine is over $100,000.00 and a cold water, high pressure wash can cause thousands of dollars.  Terraclean cleans vehicle fleets as well as machinery fleets.  We have the ability to bring the water to remote locations where water is unavailable.  For more information, please visit www.terracleanpowerwashing.comexcavator before excavator after hydrolic pump before hydrolic pump after
