Commercial / Fleet and Speciality Vehicles
Publicly owned and commercial vehicles represent a very special challenge. The finished product not only reflects on me but on the agency or company that owns the vehicle(s) as well. Clean and polished vehicles will show that they are being well taken care of and show a pride of ownership and responsibility. Marketing studies show time and time again that a clean well-maintained fleet will attract more customers and they will have a higher level of trust and confidence in your services. Also having well maintained and waxed paint, road grime build up more slowly and make washes faster and easier using less water and soap.
Having been in emergency services for over 25 yeas now, I am very able to relate to the specific differences in consumer and emergency vehicles. Not just the obvious differences, but also the different needs in a detailing sense. For example, most fire and EMS apparatus are painted with a specific industrial paint that takes specific products and techniques to work with. I have several differences in my detailing process when it comes to emergency and fleet vehicles.
* Interior dressing is kept to a minimal and with a very low or no shine to it. This is especially important on the dash to minimize reflections on the windshield
* NO dressing is used at all on rubber floors, mats, pedals or steering wheels.
* Tires are dressed with a non-silicone based gel protectant. It is wiped on not sprayed to prevent contaminating brake discs and pads.
* Non-silicone based dressings are used to prevent potential damage to the rubber.
* Patient and In-Custody areas are cleaned with an antimicrobial EMS grade cleaner / disinfectant. (I’m trained in bio-hazard handling and cleaning)
* Emergency lighting and headlight lenses are polished and coated to shed water to be more effective in inclement weather.
* If selected, a hydrophobic glass sealant / coating is applied to the windshield for better water shedding and visibility. The coating is also applied to all windows and outside mirrors.
* Synthetic sealant is applied to reflective graphics to aid in water beading and to prevent build-up that can reduce reflectivity.
The above differences are focused on safety to the public and the safety of the drivers of these vehicles.
