Kleen Car Is Going Green
At Kleen Car we have been "going green" now for a couple of years and we haven't even realized it! We have always been a huge proponent for steam machine use to clean interiors. It's more effective, safe, and efficient than any other kind of conventional cleaning methods. Now that we have introduced our Therma Kleen steam machine, the response has been tremendous. This machine is so powerful it can also get the outside of a vehicle clean, with zero water runoff!
However, there is much more to green cleaning than just a steamer. We have been developing products with Optimum Polymer Technologies for a few years now. David Ghodoussi at Optimum has had the vision and foresight to develop ALL of the Optimum products to be not only the most effective and easy to use products available, but they are environmentally safe as well. For instance, we have changed all the solvents in our buffing products long before any mandate was made to get below a certain VOC level. Ours are safe, and one of the best lines of buffing products you can possibly purchase. All of our buffing products are body shop safe, paintable, and contain no harsh solvents to harm you, the vehicle, or the environment.
Our No Rinse product has been out for years with tens of thousands of cars washed in the "new school" manner with fantastic results. As you will see from our "going green" article, this new "designer polymer" technology was ahead of its time, and is now being accepted as the preferred way and eco friendly way to wash a car. We also have other polymer and eco friendly wash products about to be launched. These are not just products that need to be used for a mobile detailer, or in a drought area. We know we have that area covered if you are in that situation, but these products represent the "new school" way of doing things, and Optimum and Kleen Car have been working on this for a while.
We hope you realize that this way of doing things will become a necessity at some point in the not so distant future. While some other companies will struggle to change and drastically need to reformulate their products and bring in new equipment, we want you to know that we have everything available right now! What better way to gain new customers than by advertising that you are detailing in an eco friendly manner. Consumers are actively researching environmentally friendly businesses and their eco friendly practices. However, this is not just a gimmick! These products work! And we have made them eco friendly a long time ago. We have them all right now
Washing a car is not about the volume of water any more and for good reason. For years we have been using garden hoses to wash cars. We then graduated to pressure washers which use far less water but still way too much in most situations, and they operate on cold water anyway. Then there was the heated pressure washers which do an even better job, but still use a large volume of water and need to be vented, and are impossible to use on a mobile basis. There needed to be a better way and we have found it. It's all about the heat and just a little bit of water with higher pressure! Combine that with the new polymer technology wash products and you not only have an effective system, but an eco friendly way of doing it!
As we mentioned, we have the Therma Kleen Steam machine that is an absolute monster of a steamer. It's the absolute best one out there. At 100PSI it's the most powerful steam machine ever made. It also has the highest temperature at 340 degrees. However, if you need to clean a little quicker with even more pressure while introducing just a little more water, we have a unit that will blow you away. Our 600 series steam pressure machine operates at 600PSI to clean the dirtiest cars with caked on grime, again with extremely little water use. This unit is propane heated but uses 100 volt electricity to operate for ease of use. It also has chemical injection to combine a great polymer wash product with the super heated steam for quick and effective cleaning. There is also no battery with this machine. It heats almost instantly and is compact enough for a shop or a mobile detailer. Any length hose is available.
It's easy to go green. We have everything you need to comply with any type of water restrictions and to safely, and effectively clean a vehicle the environmentally friendly way.
