Using the Right Tools for Dumpster Pad Cleaning
As a professional pressure washing company, Sunny Pressure Washing uses a variety of degreasing chemicals to effectively clean dumpster pads. The type of degreaser used will depend on the specific needs of the job, including the type and level of grease buildup, the surface being cleaned, and any environmental or safety concerns. A professional pressure washing company like Sunny Pressure Washing will have the knowledge and expertise to choose the most appropriate degreaser for the job, ensuring a thorough and effective cleaning of your dumpster pad. Depending on the situation, any of the following might be used:
- Alkaline degreasers: These degreasers have a high pH level and are effective at breaking down and emulsifying grease and oil. They are typically used for heavy-duty cleaning of commercial and industrial surfaces.
- Solvent degreasers: These degreasers are effective at breaking down oil and grease, but are typically used in applications where water cannot be used or where it is difficult to rinse away the cleaning solution.
- Citrus degreasers: These degreasers are made from natural citrus extracts and are effective at breaking down and removing grease and oil. They are often used in environmentally sensitive areas where harsh chemicals are not desirable.
- Enzymatic degreasers: These degreasers use naturally occurring enzymes to break down and digest organic matter, including grease and oil. They are often used in food service areas where harsh chemicals are not desirable.
Maintain Your Dumpster Pads to Comply with Health Department Regulations
The City of Houston Health Department has specific regulations in place regarding the cleaning and maintenance of dumpster pads and grease traps. Failure to comply with these regulations can result in health violations and potential fines or penalties. In addition, dumpster pad areas that are left to accumulate waste can lead to a variety of issues including:
Health hazards: Grease and food waste can attract rodents, insects, and other pests, which can spread diseases and create unsanitary conditions. This can result in health violations and potential closure of the establishment.
Odor complaints: A buildup of grease and food waste can result in unpleasant odors, which can lead to complaints from customers and nearby businesses. This can result in potential fines or penalties from the city.
Fire hazards: A buildup of grease and food waste in a grease trap or dumpster pad can create a fire hazard. In the event of a fire, the presence of excess grease can result in a more dangerous and difficult-to-extinguish fire.
Environmental concerns: Improper disposal of grease and food waste can result in environmental concerns, including pollution of nearby waterways and damage to local ecosystems. This can result in potential fines or penalties from the city.
