In today’s breakneck drive to meet customer demands, cleaning a vehicle may seem like an unnecessary luxury.
If you’re cleaning your vehicles the traditional way — with buckets of water, harsh detergents, brushes, and two or three employees — it’s not a luxury at all. It’s a time-consuming, expensive, sloppy waste of your precious resources.
The good news is you don’t have to stick with tradition. Steam cleaning is a faster, more thorough way to clean your vehicles— and while being more effective, it is also less expensive with a return on investment in as little as a few weeks.
Powered by a Lamborghini-built burner, the Fortador steam cleaning system is a portable, self-contained cleaning unit that thoroughly cleans and sanitizes vehicles in as little as 15 minutes. This means you have fewer hours spent cleaning and sanitizing vehicles, while minimizingnon - productive vehicle downtime.
Set up is easy. Because it doesn’t draw water from your facility’s lines, you don’t need to get a permit to begin using it.The efficient burner saves thousands of dollars in fuel as well.
The system doesn’t rely on harsh chemicals to clean the vehicle, instead just gentle detergents and steam. The convenient spray nozzle can clean any nook and cranny of the vehicle without damaging any of its surfaces. There’s no need for brushes or other tools that could potentially scratch the surface.
The Fortador steam cleaning system is also suitable to clean a vehicle’s interior. Again, since it isn’t using harsh chemicals to clean the surfaces, seats and other components won’t be damaged by the gentle steam mist — but will be thoroughly cleaned.
The result is a thorough cleaning inside and out, and more importantly, you’ll have a sanitized interior that will keep your drivers and customers safe and healthy — a must in light of COVID-19. And for those cleaning your vehicles, they won’t be exposed to harsh, potentially toxic chemicals.
Taken together, with steam cleaning, you have a win-win solution — you’ll save time and money, while having clean, sanitized vehicles.
Steam cleaning requires an initial investment, but one that pays back quickly. For example, a dealership or rental company, which may spend $1,500 a day on labor, water, and chemicals to clean their vehicles could see a return on investment (ROI) in as little as 10 days. For a commercial fleet, the ROI might take a little longer —but the labor savings alone will likely add up quickly.
And the benefits will keep on giving. Once it has met its ROI threshold, you will have a system that keeps saving you time and money — with clean, attractive vehicles that are also sanitized and safe. You will be able to continue building your fleet’s reputation whether you’re a sales, service, or delivery operation.
For a company that relies on its fleet to act as a symbol of its brand — a clean, well-kept vehicle driven by a neat, polite, professional technician or salesperson — is worth the investment.
