Pressure Washing: Guide to Airport ApplicationsPublished on Wednesday, May 01, 2019
Airports are highly regulated and security-based business systems that have their own individual protocols. Each sector has its own scope of responsibility; this includes cleaning from both contractors and people directly employed by the airport. Get to know all the safety protocols required by the airport and what equipment you’ll need to complete the job before accepting the contract.
The Usual Jobs
- Cleaning hangars
- Tarmac cleaning
- Cleaning runways
- Parking lot cleaning
- Cleaning terminals
- Taxiway cleaning
- Cleaning work areas
- Aircraft cleaning
Contractors should be approaching this type of job very differently from how a large international airport would approach it. The gear and equipment used are very different which means the methods/pace of cleaning will be much different.
- Multiple hot water pressure washers
- +225° F
- Water recovery units
- Safety equipment
- Turbo nozzle or medium angle spray nozzle
- Green, 25°
- Enough water hose to feed machines
