Regular cleaning for less
Do you want to come home to a clean house?
Do you work; have children, pets and no time to clean your home? Do you have allergies to dust, pet hair or dirt?
If you answered, "yes" to any of these questions we are here to detail clean.
So, we started talking about our businesses and although we worked in the same field - they worked in more of a niche. They operate as one of the few specialist tank cleaning companies in the UK.
Initially I thought it was some form of aquatic cleaning but in fact, it's much more interesting than that - some of the tanks they cleaned were nuclear power plants! I will go into more detail shortly about what tank cleaning is but rest assured, we have now partnered with Bio Clean Jetting and we conduct tank cleaning on their behalf (and rightly so, after the intense hours they spent training us) here in Canada!
So, what is tank cleaning? Well find out more about the kind of tanks we are talking about by clicking here - as you can see, it's not aquatic!
What exactly is tank cleaning?Tank cleaning is what the title implies - it's a man or a small team along with specialist industrial cleaning equipment. It's worth noting that these tanks can range from being huge in size - think nuclear reactor, can include oil storage tanks, chemical storage tanks and even chocolate storage!
The team will enter the tank they need to clean and often the contents can be extremely flammable and be an incredibly confined space. Many of these storage tanks contain chemicals or gases and over the time these chemicals and gasses can create sludge and sediments - hence the reason they need to be cleaned.
High powered jets of water is most commonly used operating at as a high as 120,000 PSI (Enough to completely cut an elephant in half!). So it is essential that adequate training is undertaken, health and safety procedures are in place and the tank cleaning process is planned intricately from start to finish!
The manager of Bio Clean Jetting LTD, David Day has this to say:
"When you mention industrial cleaning to people, they automatically think of you with a hoover or a cloth - they don't imagine you entering a confined space with £250,000s worth of equipment. Tank cleaning is a specialist procedure and not everyone provides this service but we have been doing this for over a decade and can honestly say that we love it!"

Tank cleaning ServicesWhen we speak of tanks in this blog, we are not talking about fish tanks; instead, we mean those cylindrical structures of various sizes that are used to store bulk liquids such as oil or various chemicals.
Such tanks need to be cleaned periodically so that they are not worn away by the elements or by the very liquids that they are meant to store, and crud accumulates on the bottom of diesel tanks, which in time can block the injectors — but the job cannot be performed by just anybody; if it is not performed right, the metal from which the tanks are made can corrode or become more vulnerable to corrosion, rust or other ills that affect metals.
Besides, the sheer size of a tank, plus the number of its parts — there is the heat exchanger, the pipelines and so forth — is enough to make it a monster to clean! Yet another problem is that tanks are “confined spaces” that workers enter occasionally for maintenance but are not otherwise habitable. In such places, the dangers from hazardous liquids and gases is increased.
That is why professional tank cleaning services (such as Bio Clean Jetting in the UK) have sprung up all over the world. Such companies often have specialists who are trained to enter and clean confined spaces. Some specialize in cleaning a particular kind of storage tank, such as those used for industrial purposes or to store diesel or other fuels. The company may perform tasks in addition to tank cleaning services, such as confined space rescue or jet cleaning.
Not every tank cleaning service crew does its job equally well. A company that needs to hire a tank cleaning service should first check with others that also have tanks that need to be cleaned, asking them which people they find to be the ones that perform the best work while charging the lowest fees.
As was stated in the above paragraph many industrial chemical cleaners can harm surfaces and destroy their value. Instead of using those chemicals High Pressure Jetting used to safely clean many different surfaces. This method utilizes the power of water pressure to wash away dirt and grime. The ultra High Pressure Jetting and high pressure jetting machine will build up water pressure by using a pump that is powered by a motor that often runs off of diesel or petrol. This pressure is then used to blast away crude and make surfaces look like new again. What makes this method so sought after is the fact that it does not use heat which will often damage surfaces. This is why many people who wish to clean the outside of their homes choose to use High Pressure Jetting.
Another reason many choose to use High Pressure Jetting is because it is Eco-friendly. Using a closed loop system, the water that is used to clean with can be collected and then filtered. Once the waste water has been collected and filtered it will be safe to pour down the drain and you will have no worries. This will reduce the risk of accidental contamination. Plus it is great for surfaces that have been stained with oil such as a drive or sidewalk.
