Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Being in the pressure washing industry, we all understand the importance of PPE use. Now, it is more important than ever- it is used to not only keep ourselves safe but others. Here is the CDC recommended use of PPE:

1. Identify and gather the proper PPE to on.Ensure choice of glove, google, and mask size is fitting to form.

2. Perform hand hygiene using hand sanitizer.

3. Put on NIOSH-approved N95 filtering facepiece respirator or higher (use a facemask if a respirator is not available). If the respirator has a nosepiece, it should be fitted to the nose with both hands, not bent or tented. Do not pinch the nosepiece with one hand. Respirator/facemask should be extended under chin. Both your mouth and nose should be protected. Do not wear respirator/facemask under your chin or store in pockets between jobs.

  • Respirator:Respirator straps should be placed on crown of head (top strap) and base of neck (bottom strap). Perform a user seal check each time you put on the respirator.
  • Facemask:Mask ties should be secured on crown of head (top tie) and base of neck (bottom tie). If mask has loops, hook them appropriately around your ears.
  • 4. Put on face shield or goggles.Face shields provide full face coverage. Goggles also provide excellent protection for eyes, but fogging is common.
  • 5. Perform hand hygiene before putting on gloves.Gloves should cover wrists and disposed of after each job.

Cleaning, Sanitizing & Disinfecting

What’s the difference? Well, it is a big one.

Cleaning: cleaning does not kill germs- it removes germs by lifting them away.

Sanitizing: sanitizing kills 99.9%-99.999% of germs.

Disinfecting: disinfecting kills 99.9999% of germs.

These claims are only to be made to customers if a test was conducted prior to application to ensure that the concentration was at a proper level. A test kit will determine if a solution meets the manufactures recommended concentration to therefore be labeled as a sanitizer, disinfectant, etc.

Application Methods

For all applications, please read manufacture recommendations for application including concentration and dwell time. Prior to application, surfaces should be cleaned with a detergent or soap and water, if dirty.

Spray bottle: Some sanitizers and disinfectants do not require to be wiped up. Spray bottles or pump sprayers are inexpensive and easy to use to apply a variety of volume of sanitizer or disinfectant.

Foggers: products, such a Max Quat 10% Sanitizer, can be used in a fogger, but needs to be used with cold water.

Pressure Washers: pressure washers agitate, loosen, then rinse sanitizers and disinfectants at a higher volume for a more extensive application and cleaning of larger surfaces.

Soft Wash Systems: Cover exposed surfaces quickly and can be used with a variety of sanitizers and disinfectants.
