When we take our everyday vehicles to the car wash, the primary goal is to clean the exterior of dirt, dust, and mud that has built up over time. While cleanliness is important and valued in our culture, car washes serve more of an aesthetic purpose.
It may be tempting to view professional-grade wash systems the same way. After all, they clean heavy machinery and equipment of soil and other organic material. Neptune Wash Solutions has always been passionate about leading the clean road revolution, but there’s much more to it than preventing the spread of dirt. We also want to help worksites and farms practice good biosecurity.
According to the United States Department of Agriculture, biosecurity is the set of methods through which people keep viruses, bacteria, funguses, parasites, and other microorganisms contained. This could come in the form of certain standard procedures, policies, and guidelines surrounding the construction, operation, and maintenance of facilities and vehicles. Vehicle regulation is especially important, as their mobile nature makes them particularly susceptible to picking up and carrying contaminants.
If, for example, you transport live poultry between facilities, the vehicle is likely to be contaminated. If left unaddressed, pathogens from the birds may be carried long distances and transferred to people. Some vehicles travel back and forth between fields of produce. While that may not seem like a big deal, agriculture is a very sensitive and severely regulated business. The vehicle in question may pick up trace amounts of one crop and contaminate another, or it may spread invasive species of weeds that come from outside the biosecurity perimeters.
Whether you work in mining, construction, or agriculture, there are regulations that must be followed to ensure proper vehicle biosecurity. One of the primary ways of achieving this is through frequent thorough cleanings. Doing the cleaning and disinfecting by hand takes a lot of time, and it leaves plenty of room for error. Neptune Wash Solutions is here to offer you a simpler, more thorough, and more effective alternative. Our disinfecting systems and wheel wash systems are designed with end-users in mind. We also offer on-board disinfecting nozzles for users who want to stay clean on the go. Don’t cut corners when it comes to biosecurity.
