The Planet-Loving Way to Remove Graffiti & Gum

Image
The Planet-Loving Way to Remove Graffiti & GumAs the way, we treat our planet is becoming more of a problematic the topic each year, it’s important that we all do our bit to be kinder to our home; it is the only one we have after all. One of the issues that we, as a society, need to address, is the way that we approach cleaning. We all love that feeling of getting stuck in and our hands dirty with a good clean and sometimes it’s absolutely necessary, but do we ever stop and really think about all of the harmful chemicals and solvents that we’re voluntarily polluting our air and water supply with?

Graffiti removal is one of these necessities. Of course, nobody likes to see vulgar words or images largely spray painted on to buildings, bridges or statues, nor does anyone want to see it. 

So, what do we do?
We load up our equipment with our noxious graffiti removal spray in hand and get to work scrubbing it down to the brick-like it never happened. But it did happen, and the surface dama…

WashPad delivered to Morclean HQ before its long journey to BangkokThe guys here at Morclean have been out in the yard enjoying this week, enjoying the beautiful weather whilst it lasts! Having the gorgeous sun beating down makes unloading big deliveries a lot easier than if it was raining... like it usually is!!
This week, we've had a Morclean WashPad delivered to our headquarters in Chesterfield to make sure it's all perfect before it begins its long journey to Bangkok. 

The Morclean WashPad is a solution to heavy-duty environments where a high volume of vehicles needs to be washed. The WashPad is a surface mounted system that collects wastewater when washing vehicles. 

This system is ideal for leasehold or sensitive sites, a multi-story car park, for instance, where ground works are not practical or just not possible. Similarly, we offer Inflatable Vehicle Wash Pad Systems, which are flexible and hardwearing, however, more suited for lighter use and can be easily folded up and…

The Morclean team have recently completed an impressive, new lorry wash facility in Nantwich, Cheshire. The wash system comprises of water recycling, silt traps, interceptors and water storage tanks, whilst contained within a purpose-built gantry with screens to allow access to the tops of vehicles when being washed, whilst containing over-spray. The project has been completed in 3 phases; civil works, steelworks and installing the systems.Phase 1: Civil Works To kickstart the exciting project, civil works are carried out to prepare for the installation of the underground tanks. 
The first port of call was marking out the site. This had to be meticulously done to ensure the dimensions are absolutely perfect before pecking out the existing concrete.

Once the concrete had been removed, it was time to excavate for a 6CuM3 Silt Trap and a 10CuM3 Interceptor tank.
In order to make room for the below ground interceptor and silt trap, approximately 100 tonnes of spoil had to be excavated first. M…

Getting the TV position just right, meticulously sticking the stand graphics up on the boards and making sure the ThermaSteam was looking its best. It was a hectic day, to say the least, with all the other exhibitors doing the same but everything ran smoothly and the set up was a success with no issues. Hats off to the team at Quartz for their smooth or…
