Preventing Spread of Toxins

So many things in this world are toxic and it seems like every day we find out that something else we use often is dangerous as well. I recently saw on a news webpage that drinking a glass of wine a day was as good for your heart as half an hour at the gym. I scrolled down a couple of articles and saw that drinking a half of a glass of wine a day may cause an increased risk of cancer. In situations like this, it can be impossible to know what is good for you and what isn’t. Thankfully, there are some things that we can all agree are bad for us.

                  One of these things is bacteria that can grow on food that we eat. Unfortunately, food that is prepared incorrectly can have seriously nasty effects on our bodies and can sometimes even be deadly. This is why it is so important to make sure that everything you ingest is properly prepared and cleaned. As a company that may transport some of these food items, you also have a responsibility to make sure that the trucks you use to do this is cleaned and disinfected before and after every run.

                  While you may not think that vegetables and fruits need a spotless truck to be moved in, there are many reasons why you need to make sure that everything is as clean as possible. This may deal with bugs, germs, dirt, or even feces and other things left behind by small animals. There are so many cases of recalls caused by bacteria on food that it really does make a load of difference. Depending on what you are transporting, it may also be the law that you complete a wash of not only the outside, but a trailer washout as well. These are generally a good idea to do no matter what you are transporting.

                  By ensuring that your trucks are properly cleaned and sanitized, you are cutting down drastically on the possibility of your cargo getting contaminated by something. This is important with anything, but especially with something that will be ingested. Look through Neptune’s automated wash systems and see which would best fit your needs.
