Simplicity of Operation
Most mobile detailers carry – a pressure washer, 100-gal water tank, waste-water tank, wash mat, water reclamation system, air compressor, 2000-watt generator, two dozens chemical bottles, piles of rags, among a few other items. Not Slick. Using steam we downsize our overhead BIG time. Our steamer technology uses a fraction of the water and chemicals, generating zero waste-water run-off. This means no need to fill up an oversized water tank every morning, no prep work to contain water and no clean-up, eliminating the need to carry a heavy reserve water tank and waste-water tank. Heat of the steam breaks up most of soil, grease and grime which will reduce the chemical consumption by up to 90%. The gentle pressure of steam works as an air compressor with a natural sanitizer built-in-one, no longer requiring an air compressor.
No Bureaucratic Headaches
With our steamer technology, we avoid the hassles of obtaining a car wash permit, allowing us to run our mobile operation in places like parking structures, airports, gated communities/ business parks with no waste-water tolerance policy to name a few. This means that most municipal requirements can be circumvented because our steamer provides a safe, eco-friendly, total washing system. In addition, we exempt ourselves from hefty fines or shut-down notices due to improper chemical or waste-water disposal (Learn more about Clean Water Act).
Reduce Health Risks
The gentle, pure dry vapor steam penetrates the toughest and most delicate surfaces without the use of chemicals. A chemical-free, purified cleaning process will allow us and those we serve to avoid the health risks of inhaling chemical fumes as well as the time-consuming task of cleaning up chemical waste. And on top of all this, everyone stays dry!
Our process reduces water consumption by 95%, cleaning a car using as little as one gallon of water. Not only does steam reduce our water consumption, it also reduces the equipment and space necessary to contain water. Weight reduction will greatly reduce vehicle fuel consumption. Compared to traditional pressure washer operators who carry over 250 gallons of water (over 2,085lbs) and a recovery tank, our users will need no more than 20 gallons of water for all day use with no recovery tank!
Reduce Chemical Use
Our steam technologies allow us to drastically reduce our chemical consumption. In fact, steam eliminates our need for window cleaning chemicals, soaps, detergent and other abrasive and harmful compounds. With a moisture control feature, our steamer achieves wet or dry steam. Heat of the steam will break down dirt and grime easily and sanitize any surface without chemical, and gentle yet powerful steam pressure will lift them up from vehicles' surface. The temperature of steam can be easily controlled by the distance you hold it from the surface, ensuring no damage to surface, especially paint and clear coats!
Eliminate Waste Water Runoff
Untreated waste water disposal does damage to ground soil and storm drains and impacts the environment. The equipment required for containing waste water and the cost to maintain it decreases productivity and profit. Using our steamer technology, a mobile wash operator can wash and clean without producing waste-water. Eliminating the need for a waste water reclamation mat and containment system decreases wash time per car and increases your earning potential. Under the Clean Water Act, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) implemented pollution control programs such as setting waste water standards for many industries. The EPA also set water quality standards for all contaminants in surface waters. The Clean Water Act made it “unlawful to discharge any pollutant from a point source into navigable waters, unless a permit is obtained.” When in violation, fines may approach $20,000 per day. Using our steamer technology, we will never generate waste water runoff.
