  1. What makes Clean Up America of California CUACA’s systems pressure wash so much more efficient than my current contractor?

  2. I am tired of my current contractor getting my store windows and clients’ cars dirty with overspray, will CUACA’s systems prevent that?

  3. My current contractor simply pools contaminated black water into makeshift dams on top of my facility's floors, they do this in order to reclaim it, this causes black water to drip into the seams and cracks of my upper floors.  Their method of reclaim results in black liquid dripping down into the lower floors and onto my clients' vehicles.  How is it that your systems will not cause this messy problem?

  4. I have been using a pressure washer contractor who charges me very little, why would I want such a high-tech system such as a Swabby 48 to wash my hard surfaces?

  5. My pressure washer contractor conducts operations after business hours, so I am not liable for potential pollution of U.S. Waterways.  Why would I be concerned about contaminated water entering the Storm Drain system?

  6. What if a local or federal environmental protection agency inspector, such as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, comes to my property asking me for proof of proper contaminated water disposal?

  7. My pressure washer contractor claims to operate a system that reclaims contaminated water reclaim system, why would I switch to CUACA’s Swabby 48 services?

  8. What do you do with your contaminated water?

 

1. What makes Clean Up America of California CUACA’s systems pressure wash so much more efficient than my current contractor? Back to top


Our equipment's ROTATING VERTICAL nozzles all shoot completely straight down (6 O'clock) and are less than THREE INCHES from the surface being washed.  Our nozzle systems wash your surfaces with 100% of the water pressure generated.  Our nozzle systems are housed inside chambers, so that residual water is captured with a 38-horsepower vacuum.  All the other contractors use a common spray wand at angles and distances that make water ricochet and over-spray - significantly reducing washing efficiency from your surfaces and resulting in a dirty wet mess everywhere.

Because we efficiently use all of the water pressure we generate and then recycle the water for more washing, we can wash your property much faster and more efficient than your current contractor.


2. I am tired of my current contractor getting my store windows and clients’ cars dirty with overspray, will CUACA’s systems prevent that? Back to top


Yes.  Our systems’ nozzles are inside chambers, shoot straight down (6 O’clock), and residual water is reclaimed with a 38-horsepower vacuum system.  This process prevents our systems from over-spraying and dirtying all of the surrounding vertical objects.

All of our systems have high volume extractors built into them, so our water reclaim is INSTANTANEOUS.  We do not push around black water into dams allowing it to flow into the lower levels.

Here are some questions you should ask your pressure washer contractor:

  • Per the federal Clean Water Act, is your contractor reclaiming the contaminated water and not pouring it into the Storm Drain system which eventually flows into U.S. Waterways?

  • Are they recycling the water that they are initially using in order to stay on the worksite longer?  If the contractor is not recycling and reusing water, he has to leave and return to the site in order to dispose of the contaminated water and replenish his tanks with fresh water.

5. My pressure washer contractor conducts operations after business hours, so I am not liable for potential pollution of U.S. Waterways.  Why would I be concerned about contaminated water entering the Storm Drain system? Back to top


Under the federal Clean Water Act BOTH the pressure washer contractor AND the property owner are liable for polluting the Storm Drain systems.

FLAGRANT Clean Water Act violations can incur TENS OF THOUSANDS DOLLAR FINES.

Even if you are unconcerned of polluting the Storm Drain systems and U.S. Waterways, you should be aware that if your contractor is pouring contaminated water into your property’s internal drain systems, you run the risk of clogging your systems and causing a potential back-up during a rainstorm or plumbing accident.


6. What if a local or federal environmental protection agency inspector, such as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, comes to my property asking me for proof of proper contaminated water disposal? Back to top


CUACA and our waste disposal contractor, Veolia Environmental Services, archive all records of each work order completed.  Upon request, we will also film our operations conducted on your property.


7. My pressure washer contractor claims to operate a system that reclaims contaminated water reclaim system, why would I switch to CUACA’s Swabby 48 services? Back to top


Current methods of pressure washing water reclaim operations require labor-intensive procedures for laborers to:

  • Operate high-pressure water wands;
  • Operate extraction devices to vacuum contaminated water;
  • Damn the surrounding Storm Drains;
  • Squeegee runaway contaminated water;
  • Manage high-pressure and liquid extraction systems, such as their engines, pumps, hoses, fuel levels, and tanks.
  • Filter contaminated water; and
  • Properly dispose of contaminated water.

8. What do you do with your contaminated water? Back to top


With our patented process, we treat and filter the contaminated water we reclaim in order to recycle it back through our system to use over and over again for more pressure washing operations.  During our work-site operations, we extract a solid contaminated byproduct that we eventually dispose of at a local landfill.

Ask your contractor how they dispose of their contaminated water.  Disposing contaminated water is an extremely costly service. Landfills charge a very high price because of the risk of the liquid contamination soaking far down into the ground and contaminating aquifers under their landfills. Because of the high cost of disposing contaminated water here in California, most contractors ship their's outside of California, hence passing the transportation and fuel costs to you.
