There are so many reasons for you to get your company vehicles nice and clean, but do you realize just how much of an impact it can make to the environment? When we think about things that we can do to make the earth a bit better, it often involves recycling and turning off the lights when we leave a room. While these little things are great to do as well, making sure that your fleet of trucks stays clean is another way to help preserve the areas that you drive through for years to come.
If you have been keeping up with the news about invasive species this year, you have likely heard of the Spotted Lanternfly in the northeast, especially in Pennsylvania. Invasive species are animals and plants that are not native to an area but find their way there and cause devastation. These can travel in a number of ways, but it is often due to some kind of transport. Bugs and other animals can find their way onto things like planes and cars and may end up hundreds or even thousands of miles away from their natural habitat. If there is a method for them to mate, an infestation is not out of the question. So what does this have to do with your trucks?
Even if you don’t have bugs flying around inside your vehicles, you may still be transporting them. Many bugs lay eggs and there are often dozens in any clutch. If your truck was selected as the place for a bug to put those eggs and you then drive a long distance, there is a good chance that they will survive and grow up in the new area. You may end up causing an environmental disaster without even knowing it!
One of the best ways to help prevent this from happening is to make sure that all of your trucks are washed regularly. You can get the best clean from an automated wash system such as the one that we have created here at Neptune.
