Cleaning Service Stations with a Pressure Washer

Fuel prices these days are quite high and they take their toll on a service business. It is time to strike back. If you own a cleaning business that uses pressure washers why not clean service stations and get some of your money back as you pay $2.30 per gallon for fuel? Gas Stations are usually franchises and have cleanliness commitments as part of their franchise agreements with the oil companies they sign on with. This means they have no choice they must keep their gasoline stations spiffy. Currently with unemployment rates so low 5% on average many stations do not have the extra labor needed to keep up with the cleaning.

Our company, The Car Wash Guys, set up an industrial division specializes in gas station steam cleaning. We have cleaned hundreds of such accounts and done business with individual station owners. If you are in a pressure washing business you can clean anything with your steam cleaners. For first time or one time cleaning you need to be sure to charge more than usual and so be thinking in the neighborhood of these prices for one time services; Lift Racks $10.00; Bathrooms $15.00; Two Car Garages $20.00; Islands $65-100.00; Car Wash Walls $75.00; Car Wash Brushes $30.00 and special bid estimates asphalt area. For quarterly services you will notice that things are almost as dirty as if they were never washed at all. For monthly services consider charging in the neighborhood of 80% of these prices and for bi-monthly services on a routine schedule sixty percent. These prices for over all concrete areas should include canopy cleaning.

What's really great about your service is that it can be customized to the corporate needs and you can sign on 20-40 stations at once. Our company has been asked to clean signage, roofs, sidewalks, even wax and polish pumps. With general maintenance and upkeep more customers will want to buy their fuel at your customer's station instead of competitors because it's so clean. Your customers may even receive awards from their cities and oil companies for having the nicest stations. We know of two stations, which received proclamations from their State Senator. You must be sure to alert your customer right away that your company also maintains a one million dollar liability insurance policy and has all the permits for environmental wastewater discharge. Happy Washing.
