From hazardous waste removal, hurricanes, floods, earth quakes, to tornados; PWU can help restore any environment.

Water Contamination 

Water contamination is described as hazardous materials, any kind that are contaminating a source of water. This could include both biological and chemical substances. The water source may be: ponds, lakes, seas, oceans, or reservoirs used for drinking and bathing by humans. The most common types of water contamination are chemical runoff from homes, businesses, and human or animal waste materials. Pressure Washing Unlimited is here to help manage these issues, and to better our environment. 


"In industrialized nations, water contamination is much less common than in third world and developing countries. That’s because sophisticated water purification systems are in place to clean waste materials from the water, disinfect it using chemicals, and then purify it so that it is safe for consumption. Areas that do not have these technologies may encounter contaminated water due to animal wastes entering the water supply or household chemicals running from the ground into underground wells."


Pressure washing often requires chemicals for cleaning purposes. These chemicals should never be disposed off improperly or allowed to enter into storm drains. Any substances or chemicals produced from pressure washing should always be recovered, treated, and disposed of properly. Even when chemicals are not used for cleaning, the surfaces in which are being washed may have contaminants. All surfaces should be evaluated prior to cleaning to insure contamination into water ways will be prevented. PWU will always capture, contain, treat, and reuse our waste water. This practice is an industry standard amongst the professional pressure washing industry. Please note that under the ILLIONOIS CLEAN WATER ACT any non-compliant individuals are subject to fines and penalties. Please review the law for complete information. PWU will be glad to assist with any questions as best possible. 


PWU has state of the art custom self-contained pressure washing vehicles to clean, collect, treat, and reuse waste water generated by our power washing. In some cases, PWU may opt to collect waste water and transport the waste to a certified waste water treatment plant. This is typical of large scale projects. 


Please call for more information and ask to speak with one of our specialist.

Chemical Clean-up

Have you ever wondered where spilled oil, chemicals, or waste that’s left there goes once it rains? Or what happens to the detergent that runs down the driveway when you wash your truck, car, or motorcycle? What happens to pressure washing generated waste water that is not recovered? The spilled oils, detergents, dirty water, chemicals, and other waste is carried through city drains into the nearest lake, stream, bay or ocean. Waste water from your home enters a sewer to be collected at a sewage treatment facility. The sewage is then treated and released into clean water ways once suitable. On the other hand, rain sewers do not get treated instead they enter local water ways including ponds, lakes, rivers, and oceans. This is why it is critical to prevent unwanted chemicals from entering these water ways. Plants, fish, animals, and entire ecosystems rely on clean water to sustain.  PWU urges you to do your part and help prevent contamination. PWU can clean spills and prevent unwanted waste from entering storm drains. PWU will treat this water in our trucks, at our shop, or transport the waste to the proper recycling plant. 


Pressure Washing Unlimited is here on-call, 24 hours a day to attend to your chemical clean-up maintenance. We want to prevent any hazardous chemicals from reaching sewers, drains, water ways, ETC. Rembert it is everyone’s responsibility to keep our environment clean and safe.


Businesses as well as residential home-owners may know that water recovery can be very costly. It is in PWU best interest to provide you with top-of-the-line service at the economically-lowest pricing. We have fully, self-contained service trucks with water recovery units on them that can help with any situation. There is not a job to big or small for PWU to service. 


Below are some helpful way to protect your environment from preventable chemical spillage: 


  • Don't dump waste into storm drains.

  • Dispose of household chemicals properly by following the directions on the package or by calling the local public works department for proper disposal guidelines.

  • Clean up oil spills properly and fix leaking automobiles.

  • Use drip pans to catch engine oil and other pollutants while repairing cars.

  • Recycle used motor oil.

  • Sweep driveways clean instead of hosing them down.

  • Water your lawn by hand, or adjusted sprinklers to avoid over-watering. If any water flows off your lawn, you're using too much water.

  • Wash your car at a commercial car wash with waste water treatment.
