Making sure the interior of dry van and reefer trailers are clean and sanitary is important, especially when used to haul food products. Without proper cleaning, a wide range of problems can arise:
- Mold and mildew
- Foodborne illnesses
- Rodent and insect infestation
Due to the high risks associated with these problems, a trailer washout is a necessity. Once the trailer is cleaned, it can be properly sanitized and disinfected.
High-pressure washing is a fast and effective method of trailer washout. This can be accomplished by manual pressure washing, or with an automated interior wash system. Manual washing involves one or more people with pressure wash guns to clean the surfaces. Automated interior trailer wash systems use a self-propelled cart with several high-pressure nozzles. The cart travels the entire length of the trailer and can clean and sanitize faster than manually cleaning.
