Cleaning Methods for Different Fleet Materials

To effectively and safely clean trucks without damage, it’s essential to tailor your approach according to the material.


A pressure washer can easily remove dirt, grime, and dried mud from aluminum trucks. Spray a layer of detergent on the aluminum surface, using a brush to scrub areas with more stubborn contaminants. Then, it is recommended to rinse the detergent off using a pressure level of 2,000 PSI and a 25-degree nozzle tip.


To remove dirt and mud from steel trucks, use a fan nozzle to apply a mixture of laundry detergent and water. Don’t use cleaning solutions made for wood or vinyl materials as they can damage the steel. Then, it is suggested to rinse off the detergent mixture using a 25-degree nozzle and 2,000 PSI.


When pressure washing windows, it’s imperative to first make sure they’re sealed tightly so that no water enters the vehicle. Use a multi-purpose soap or cleaning solution to remove dirt and stains. For rinsing, it is suggested to go for a pressure level below 2,000 PSI and a 40- to 60-degree nozzle tip for gentle cleaning.


When you’re busy managing a business, you usually don’t have time to clean your fleet. You often find yourself having to postpone cleaning day as different problems and appointments come up. A professional pressure washing company can help you with this by setting up a regular cleaning schedule.


Not a lot of fleets use copper as a primary material, but some vehicles may have copper details. When the wrong cleaning solution is used, copper can darken and lose its sheen. To clean copper materials or surfaces, use a brush to scrub a mixture of flour, vinegar, and salt. Then, wash off the paste using a recommended 25- or 40-degree nozzle and low-pressure water.

The Process ofFleet Pressure Washing

When pressure washing a fleet, it’s important to perform the following actions:


 Before starting the pressure washing process, Washh makes sure to inspect your fleet thoroughly to determine the degree of cleaning required. This also allows us to identify any hazards that need attention.


 Warm water — a minimum of 140°F — is more effective.


Adjust the pressure level according to the surface that needs cleaning. For fleets, that means using a pressure level between 2,000 and 3,000 PSI, lowering the pressure for more delicate areas. Washh uses both pressure washing and soft washing techniques for safe yet effective cleaning.

Wand Attachments

Effective pressure washing also calls for the right wand attachments. Use long wands for general cleaning and short wands for areas that are hard to reach. 


Using the wrong nozzle tip can easily damage surfaces. Washh has all the necessary nozzles and tips as well as the expertise to use them without damaging the material.


It takes more than just pressurized water to clean fleets. Washh uses eco-friendly and EPA-registered detergents to get rid of dirt, grime, and grease, sanitizing and restoring your fleet vehicles to their former condition.

The Right Techniques

Depending on the state of your fleet, use either a one-step or two-step cleaning method. Using a one-step method, soap and rinse your fleet using warm, pressurized water. The two-step method is reserved for fleets that require additional cleaning and typically involves brightening (for aluminum) or scrubbing (for stubborn road film).

Why Fleet Cleaning Is a Must

For many businesses, fleet vehicles are more than just a way to get employees around. They serve triple-duty as transportation, mobile offices, and rolling advertisements.

Of course, a clean fleet doesn’t just look good — it also runs better. Regular pressure cleaning is necessary for maintaining any fleet of vehicles. After spending any amount of time on the road, cars and trucks pick up all sorts of dirt and grime. This often includes corrosive agents like road salt and oil that will reduce the life of your exterior and undercarriage if left unchecked.

Additionally, clean trucks are much safer. Dirt dulls color and clouds lights, which severely reduces your vehicle’s visibility. Your employees work hard and should not be left operating dirty and unsafe trucks, so make sure to regularly clean your fleet for the best results.

Benefits of Professional Fleet Pressure Washing

Oftentimes, your fleet serves as the face of your company. A well-maintained fleet sends out the right signals to customers and can be an indication of how you conduct business. It’s also a good way to show off your logo without obscurity. But, fleet cleaning can be a hassle, especially when you have to do it yourself. For that, you’ll need professional help.
