HOW TO PRESSURE WASHER A STREET OR ROAD


Millions and millions of miles of road stretch across our country, and road crews are responsible for not only those roads but the side walks that join them, curbs, and overpasses. All of this can be daunting work, requiring hours and hours of intensive labor. However a quality commercial grade pressure washer can save time, energy, and resources. High traffic pedestrian areas are also a problem for cities, cross walks, meeting areas, and sidewalks all take a beating.

Weather also can contribute to the problems faced by our street departments. After heavy rains, flooding, and storms that blow leaves down and clog storm drains, cleaning is a must. The mud will cake to the streets and the sidewalks while the leaves clog up your cities drainage system. A pressure washer and sewer jetter combination is an ideal machine for our municipalities. The sewer jetter portion is ideal for clearing clogged drains year round. Here are just a few application you will use a pressure washer for.

SPILL CLEANUP
Spills can come from a variety of sources. What ever the case they must be cleaned right away to get the roads back open and traffic flowing. Truckers haul everything from used motor oil to fertilizer. Using a pressure washer will get the spills cleaned up faster than anything else you can find. You can use a degreaser as well to accomplish even faster results depending on the type of spill it is.

ROADKILL CLEANUP
If you are out in the country you probable see this problem on a daily basis. Unfortunately this is a problem that most motorists can’t avoid, and it is left to the road crews to clean up. Not only does this stain the surface of the road and side walks, but also gives off a very unpleasant odor as well as posing a health risk for people and pets. A pressure washer will get deep down into the surface and lift the stain also removing the smell. In high traffic areas a disinfectant and deodorizer may need to be used.

BUS STOPS
Bus shelters are a convenient place for people to get out of the weather while they are waiting for a city bus. People can spill coffee, soda, and leave other disgusting things behind. With some cities having hundreds of these shelters, they need continuous service and pressure washing just to keep them usable. By keeping these stops clean passengers will be healthier and happier as they ride.

SEWER JETTING DRAINS
A sewer jetter is basically a pressure washer with a different type of hose, a jetter valve installed in your pump, and sewer jetting nozzles. Using a hose reel will make sewer jetting much easier. Cities can use a jetter to clear clogged storm drains, sewer lines, and any other drainage system in place that can handle high pressure. Leaves are a big problem in the fall clogging drains. Using a jetter will clear these lines very quickly, leaving a free flowing drain keeping your city dry. Keeping clear drains will also help keep the streets cleaner allowing more dirt to exit.

Whatever your need a commercial grade pressure washer will get your job done in an acceptable time frame. Your citizens will be delighted to see their taxes at work keeping their city clean. A clean city is vital to its growth and development.
