Why does ProSouth Pressure Washing use a 2-step process?
The first step involves applying a low PH pre-soak followed by an alkaline based detergent then rinsing the vehicle with a high-pressure rinse to remove road film which is a thin layer of dirt and pollutants that is held to the surface by an electrostatic bond. 2-step removes road film without brushing, which prevents undue wear on your vehicle’s surface, leaving it bright and shiny! The process we use produces a neutralized, film-free surface that guards against new film buildup longer and results in a cleaner vehicle surface.
Our Cleaning Process
improve your driver retention and reduce the amount of turn over
Our aggressive two-step procedure powerfully removes the toughest road film and is 100% biodegradable and phosphate free. We use two detergents that neutralize each other, so that they return to the environment in a neutral pH state. The environmentally friendly detergents and brighteners we use on all the equipment and fleet vehicles we service has been approved by SC DHEC.
Unlike many other fleet washing vendors, we use the latest chemical technology to provide an excellent clean, defend your fleet from oxidation and corrosion, and conduct ourselves in a thoroughly eco-friendly manner. Our two-step approach also means you benefit from an effective touchless wash, avoiding the scratches and micro abrasions that come with the brush method of cleaning. The necessity of maintaining a clean fleet is very important for several reasons:
- It enhances the company’s image
- Reduces maintenance costs and results in longer asset life
- Conveys the owner’s maintenance diligence to the DOT resulting in fewer mechanical inspections
- Driver Pride and improved driver recruitment and retention

How often should fleets be maintained?
Some national transportation companies wash as often as two times per week or more. The average fleet owner washes approximately every other week. No matter what wash schedule you prefer, weekly, bi-weekly or monthly, ProSouth Pressure Washing can maintain your fleets all year round, even in the coldest climates.
Why should I decide to use a mobile fleet washing service?
Company image, regulations, easier maintenance and warranty issues influence the decision for fleet washing. Public perception is probably the single most motivating factor for fleet washing. Compare the impression given by a dirty fleet and that of a clean fleet delivering food to your preferred supermarket. All consumers are easily influenced by visual representations. Government regulations also effect the cleaning of trucks and trailers. Transportation of food and food grade materials must meet specified degrees of cleanliness before they can be loaded for shipment. Petroleum trucking firms must keep all visible signs of hydrocarbons (grease and oils) cleaned from all visible surfaces to ensure that leaks are not occurring. Mechanics find it easier to work on a piece of equipment when it is clean because problems are easier to find. Plus the attitude of drivers is greatly improved when they don’t have to drive a filthy vehicle.
Wash Water Recovery- Are you compliant with the CWA?
Yes. In order to be compliant with the Clean Water Act, we prevent all wash water from entering a storm drain. This requires that we reclaim the wash water that would enter the storm drain by using a reclamation system. In areas where water reclamation is direct to landscaping, ProSouth Pressure Washing has been granted permission and authorization through the local Environmental Health Department. This means that terminal mangers and fleet owners can rest assured that they are hiring a company that is in compliance with all Federal and State regulations as it pertains to the EPA and Clean Water Act. We obtain any necessary permits with our municipality, we are insured for 2 million in general liability, carry workers compensation, bonded and have been entrusted with over 4,000 truck washes and details.
Efficient cleaning process - How will your service save me money?
The Key to an Overall Efficient Wash is as follows:
- Having the proper detergent
- Knowing the water hardness of the water you are using
- The correct water temperature
- Proper dwell time of the detergent on the surface
- Ensuring the detergent doesn’t dry during the wash process
- An efficient method for applying & rinsing off the detergent
If you have never had a wash service and “do it yourself” then consider the cost and savings that comes from increased productivity. Consider a driver that is paid 17.00 per hour and that driver spends approximately 30 minutes to wash a tractor. This would cost you 10.00 including payroll taxes. Add in the expense of soaps and chemicals, which cost about $3 to $5 a gallon. Remember that a truck driver is not concerned with the use of soap and will probably use about 1/2 gallon to do a tractor.
Most fleet owners waste thousands every year on fleet washing — don’t be one of them.
Consider the following:
Employee hourly wage: $15.00
Hours Spent washing each truck: .75
Trucks in fleet: 25
Chemical Cost per gallon: $8.00
Washing Frequency (Washes per year): 26
Your Company’s current cost per fleet wash would be as follows:
Labor subtotal based on standard tax & insurance rates: $352
Chemical subtotal based upon standard chemical usage rate: $150
Equipment Maintenance subtotal based upon standard power usage and repair cost: $263
Revenue subtotal based on trucks not being utilized: $1,013
Your company cost per fleet washing: $1,778
Your Company costs per year: $46,228.00
*This is just for 25 trucks – washed twice per year!
