Our Equipment Leads the Way!
You know, many companies say they have the best equipment, but here at the Crystal Cleaning Company we can prove it !Through our specifications, you will notice that the Crystal Cleaning Company’s equipment is unique and produce some very interesting numbers. When a company says “up to” what do they really mean? Take a look at the Equipment Comparison Page. We invite you to ask questions about the equipment. See the spec’s. As my grandfather use to say, “Numbers don’t lie”. These are all good questions to explore and in our experience in purchasing generic prefab equipment, we found most manufactures say their pressure washer will heat water up to 200 degrees. Reality is they fall far short of those claims outside the laboratories of where they’re tested. We find that these prefab equipment, when under full load, can only produce temperatures of 150 to 165 with a few hitting 180. In order to hit the 200 degree mark, you have to sacrifice the volume of water and in some cases, pressure. This is unacceptable when doing a garage floor. The end result is damage to your cement, and the removal process, is mediocre at best. We at the Crystal Cleaning Company found that these machines average temperatures was inadequate for removing oil from the cement of a Parking Facility. You need at least 245 degrees under a full load to break the bond of the oil on a molecular level. PERIOD ! Our competitor’s boilers are only at 350,000 to 450,000 BTU’s. This is why they have to “Turn down the flow” in order to hit those 200 degree F. marks. Meaning, if they have a 6 gpm pump, they would have to reduce their water flow to 3 or 4 gpms so that the water flow has is less for their boilers to heat the water to a higher temperature. This would reduce the cleaning power of the machine and possible etch the cement with the thinner spray. Below is a chart supplied from a well known manufacture who says there machines hit 200 degrees. Look at what is needed to hit a 140 degree rise from a 4 to 6 gallon per minute pressure washer. Note the outside ambient temperature needed to hit a 140 degree rise.

Our Filtration System
Up to 65 GPM for faster cleaning times.
ALL Filters get clogged. By having a smaller filter, you cannot use as many washers, thus your cleaning times slow way down or the quality of the deep clean maybe compromised so that not as much waste product is removed for filtration.
How many times do you hear, ” Oh we are not able to finish on time because…” Chances are, it’s because of their filtration unit. You see, a washer filter is the weakest link in the cleaning of your parking garage. Cleaning in the San Francisco Bay Area, you will find that it is required to filter your waste water before it is disposed of. If you use a company that has only a 8 GPM machine, then he can only use one pressure washer which most are at 6 to 9 GPM. The result is a bottleneck for your cleaning discharge waste. Waste that must be filter before you dispose of it.
We found this all out before any company even thought about filtration back in 1992. We learned very quickly that you need a filtration unit designed to handle large areas such as Parking Garage Cleaning. Since no manufacturer has a filter with specs reaching 68+ GPM , we decided to build our own at a cost well over 145,000 dollars. This is a serious investment for just filtration, but it is necessary to get the job done in a timely manor. What would take a competitor 6 to 10 days to complete the cleaning of your garage, the Crystal Cleaning Company can do it in a single day thanks to our filtration system.
What does that mean for you, the customer ? Less time, faster turn around. That’s right, MORE REVENUE FOR YOUR FACILITY DUE TO LESS TIME TO CLEAN YOUR GARAGE.
Most garages have income revenue from every day their garages are open to the public. Down time during the cleaning process means lost revenue. which could be in the tens of thousands per week of closure. Now just imagine 2 days in lieu of 10 days…or how about having your 280,000 sq ft garage cleaned better than anyone else can and achieved all of this in a single day. That’s saving 10 days of your lost revenue. With that money, your garage would be cleaned for free.
Think about that….a Cheaper, more slower less efficient cleaning process may actually be allot more expensive, more complaints due to closure, more headaches for you.
