If environmental compliance is important to you and your facility, Pro Wash, LLC has the experience and equipment needed to provide impressive end results. Using our vacuum reclaim pressure washing strategy, we meet or exceed the environmental protection agencies recommended practices regarding wash water control.
Any substrate from concrete parking lots to multi-story building exteriors may require the dirty wash water to be recaptured and disposed of in accordance with the “Clean Water Act of 1972”. The Pro Wash team is highly trained and equipped to fully comply with National, state and local municipalities Best management practices (BMP’S) regarding wastewater disposal.
Concrete and many other porous surfaces hold and trap oils, heavy metals, automotive fluids, cleaning agents and other non-eco friendly particles. When these surfaces are cleaned, the contaminants that settle on the surface are suspended in the wash water. If this contaminated water reaches storm drains it will likely find its way into local rivers, lakes, and streams. Reclaiming the wash water allows us to direct the pollutants to exactly where they need to go for proper disposal.
Authorities, federal and state, have increased enforcement in the Nashville area over the last few years. More and more citations and fines are being issued for noncompliance when it comes to wash water discharge. These fines not only affect the pressure washing contractor but can also be applied to building owners as well.
We obtain the ability to complete small or large scale power washing projects while keeping the environment safe from contaminants and eliminating non-compliance fines.
Our industrial gas engine powered vacuum systems are powerful enough reclaim massive amounts of dirty water and simultaneously filter out the oil, heavy solids, silt and sludge. The filtered water is then discharged into holding tanks to be hauled off-site or discharged into the facilities sanitary sewer system after the PH levels have been appropriately adjusted.

There are several ways that the contaminated wash water can be introduced into our filtration systems including vacuum surface cleaners, suction berms, vacuum scupper devices, and vacuum squeegee wands.
