Certifications Make a Difference in the Pressure Washing & Mobile Cleaning Industry

Contractors are raising industry standards by becoming certified in numerous areas. As certification mania sweeps across the industry, and as organizations are moving forward with their own programs, there’s really no question that certification matters. But, as more certification programs become available, how do customers know which the correct contractor with the best certifications?

We at National Cleaning Expo cannot tell you which certifications are “wrong” because many have correct aspects along with some misinformation. However, based on our own careful studies and the input we’ve gathered by having regulators and water authority engineers from three universities at several of our events, we do recognize some programs that stand out head and shoulders above the rest.

One key area where National Cleaning Expo has been leading the way is by fostering the first Wash Water Control Certification in the industry. Sirocco Systems has written a comprehensive wash water certification seminar educating contractors in the mobile wash industry. We like the Sirocco wash plan because it's the only one in the industry that talks first about reduction, and that washing is actually friendly to the environment. The others only focus on washing being a form of pollution and what can be done to reduce waste after polluting.

You can attend the Wash Water Control School throughout 2012 and 2013 at mini camps throughout the US.

Every contractor should have a wash water control plan in place to reduce the client’s liability and to better understand the positive environmental impacts that washing can accomplish. This wash water plan begins with the evaluation of the job.

Education is powerful. Contractors benefit from being properly educated, and customers feel confident in using contractors who properly understand the laws and impacts of washing.

Customers are aware. They often know the issues. It’s time you know them better than your customers so that you do not look uninformed in front of them. Most importantly, you do not want to misinform your customers by spreading the propaganda that has been promoted in our industry by distributors and manufacturers. This information makes you look inexperienced and you will lose the contract to a well-informed contractor..

So don’t avoid certification just because someone else in the industry says it’s not important or unnecessary. Who are the ones telling you this? Are they possibly your competition?

We at NCE know that certifications don't make you a better contractor or person. They just make you aware and let your customers know you understand the right way. No one can make you practice what you learn.

Jerry's class is something that all contractors should attend, especially if you clean large areas of concrete, deal with recovery/reclaim issues or want to learn how to recover the wash water at affordable prices and know what equipment is available that will do the job without being sold stuff you really don't need.

Good video. :sunshine:That's the wire I have to change out today on one of my Powerwashers. The wire to the battery that goes to the voltage regulator is corroded just enough along with a couple of other wires including one to the starter which is causing the starter to just click.. I shake the wires around and then the engine will start. So I took them apart Sunday and there just like what Jerry is talking about in that video except these wires are alot more corroded..

Grease is the key.
