Pressure Washing: Guide to Airport ApplicationsPublished on Wednesday, January 16, 2019
Airports, like any other highly regulated industry, have their own protocols that need to be followed for each sector under their 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 is very different which means the methods/pace of cleaning will be much different.
- Multiple hot water pressure washers
