Maintenance Tips For Your Car Washing Business

The primary function of a car wash is to help us keep our cars and other vehicles clean.  Since we have a draught condition in many areas, it is now illegal to wash your car in your yard, hence the need for these companies.  As cars go in and out of these washing bays, dirt and grime will eventually build up which could be transferred back to cars as they use the service.  This is why car wash maintenance is a high priority to keep your customers cars clean.

Pressure wash the bays

The first thing that you would want to do in order to keep the business running is to pressure wash the bays.  The bays are the areas where the customer will drive their car through.  When we pressure wash the bays we are removing any dirt and debris from the walls and ceiling as well as from any of the machinery used to wash the cars.

Check and clean all the nooks and crannies

In your washing bays there are a lot of nooks and crannies that will collect lint, dust, garbage etc.  Doing a visual examination of these areas will help keep the areas clean.

Check the power nozzles

Much of the equipment that we use to wash cars are hoses with pressure.  It is important that we check that the nozzles are not clogged, lose or damaged.  You will also want to inspect hoses for kinks, holes or worn parts.  The last thing you want to have happen is a hose burst while someone is washing their car.  This can get them wet or even cause damage physically to themselves or their vehicle.

Check chemicals levels

Finally, make sure that you have enough soap, degreaser, water pressure and your drying machines are putting out a good air flow.  Having all of your components working at top efficiency will ensure that your customers are happy and you have a viable product to offer.
