Gas Station Washing 

Gas stations need regular cleaning more than typical facilities in almost any other industry. Clients interact directly with the exterior of your business, often leaving a mess at your pump and parking areas. For customers, the appearance of a gas station may be the only information they use to choose between your facility and a competitor, it is proven that consumers feel safer and prefer doing business at retail sites that maintains a clean facility. The City of Chicago requires mandatory pressure washing twice per year with waste water recovery by a certified contractor. Furthermore, gas stations must display a certificate provided by the contractor with the information provided by the contractor. Failure to pressure wash in the proper manner will result in penalties and significant fines. Any waste water that was allowed to enter storm drains or water ways must be cleaned by a certified company as well. This will result in additional penalties and fines along with the cost of cleanup and drain pumping. The risk of using a non-certified company is risky, costly, and dangerous to our environment.

Chemical Recovery and Why it is Important 

Pressure Washing Unlimited is here to offer waste water recovery from gas station. It is an EPA regulation that water be reclaimed after power washing gas stations due to hazardous chemicals. While gasoline offers a great advantage to us by powering our cars and buses, it has some drawbacks too. Gasoline is composed of over 200 different chemicals with four known that are toxic to humans – benzene, toluene, ethyl benzene, and xylene. These chemical often leak onto the gas station concrete surface and most people do not realize the danger. When power washing these surfaces, drains should be closed off so it does not go back into our water system. The waste water then should be collected, treated, and disposed of properly. PWU has been recovering and treating waste water for years. Individuals who do not recover the waste water are subject to fines and severe penalties. Helping preserve our environment is a serious matter and should always be considered while pressure washing at fuel stations. Allowing contaminants to enter into storm drains is illegal and detrimental to our ecosystem. Pressure Washing Unlimited will always clean your facility in a safe manner. Our waste water is either treated and reused, or disposed of at a treatment center. Routine maintenance programs are the best way to keep a clean facility and help lower cleaning cost.

PWU wants to prevent hazardous situation and are here 24/7 to maintain gas station clean-ups. Please call us at 773 392-1500 to learn more information.
