Wheelchair Cleaning

The other day, I was asked; how to go when it comes to cleaning huge medical items on internetsite at hospitals. Since, I am the Wash Guy, some folks will shoot me an email when they need counsel on how to clean something. With regards to this question:

How Should Our Service Company Go About Cleaning Medical Tables, Wheelchairs and Equipment On site?

My answer is as follows. First, you can not grant the water to leave the truck, obviously, but with a reclaim tank, you may take the waste wash water to a POTW or discharge it (with a permit) to the sanitary sewer system. An electric unit running from a quiet generator would be low-noise, and as long as the exhaust leaves the truck, you could work in their fine. Actually, if you are cleaning medical equipment, the definition of the waste is most likely “bio-waste” and so you need to be sure on that point.

The drying procedure may be accomplished a number of ways, but with a foggy atmosphere inside the truck, the items will be full of dew and so the drying will need to be done in an entry way of the facility or in a trailer unit that you tow. You will need a portable space heaters that you put there “after you arrive” and not before because trailers bounce around and could cause the space heaters to explode due to the fuel in their tanks. Unless you set up a real industrial type system, that is what I recommend.

Pressure washer hot water units use 4.0 to 6.5 GPM at 2,000 to 3500 in general depending on the pump and power, you want to be on the low end of both. The actual steam units use little water, and do clean but it might take a lot longer. The cash is in the time, not in the job. Remember that, be effective or forget the whole thing.

Baffles are necessitated in the water storage tanks to prevent the water motion from causing your vehicle to crash, the load moves significantly, you will be amazed just how much.

Some buying goods cart companies clean the carts outside, numerous on mats outside, we use to clean them in little “Toys R Us” poly plastic swimming pools “stacked in threes” for strength to gather the water. There are a lot of that clean them with trailers on an assemblage line like a miniature car wash.

Cleaning medical instrumentation inside a of Box Truck, a similar operation to “Shred It” where they take the papers and shred them, doing the service inside the truck itself. This conception is completely feasible. You will need to use steam and have good ventilation, because steam will fog up the work area inside the enclosure.

The reclaim system is a tricky one, because you in truth do not want to use all the same water over and over again. Instead, you want “Steam” and hot water pressure washer rinse with solution to kill all bacteria and germs. You will need to take the biohazard waste-water to someplace to put it into a boiler, it might not be wise to have the boiler inside the truck you are working inside of? Two trucks?

The water source you speak of may be done by putting a 500 – 1000 gallon tank in the truck up front, but realize that is 8,000 Lbs if you go with 1,000 gallon tank. The people who do on-site buying goods cart cleaning do it this way, same with the graffiti remotion companies. Large giant water tank and hot water pressure washer. But I commend that you go with pure steam, like an industrial jewelry cleaner?

The tanks come in respective configurations, you could use an upright tank, if you have steel encasing to prevent it from moving too much and you need baffles with anything over 350 gallons, even on a huge truck. Equipment necessitated to do this work. I recommend:

  • Buy a Hydrotech Steam Cleaner
  • Industrial Steam Machine
  • 1000 gallon tank
  • 1,000 gallon reclaim
  • 500 gallon boiler
  • RO water cleaning system
