Clean Gas Stations are Safe Gas Stations
With everything else a small business owner has to worry about, keeping a gas station clean might not seem like the biggest priority. In fact, a clean station does more than attract a better class of customers. A clean station makes it possible to meet local building and zoning codes and keeps the station safe.
As any gas station owner knows, customers and the elements tend to make a mess of things. Gas and beverage spills occur almost a dozen times a day, and wind and rain can cause a build-up of dust and dirt on pumps and indoor equipment. While having employees regularly spot clean these areas can help, the truth is that dirt collects in places that are hard to reach or see. In time, this dust can build up a static charge, causing the gas to ignite, while mud can clog equipment, forcing you to pay thousands in repair costs.
Fortunately, it is possible to avoid this. Having your station regularly power-washed will prevent these build-ups and make your business more attractive. Power washing can be done while customers are using pumps and shopping in the store, so there is no reason to worry about it interfering with normal operations. Most importantly, it can remove the dangerous build-ups of dust and dirt that can harm your business and its customers.
