Editor’s Note—January 2024

by Michael Hamline, Editor / Published January 2024

Happy New Year and welcome to 2024! In case you haven’t had enough food during the holidays, we’d like to get your taste buds salivating and hopefully your bank account growing by introducing you to a potential new business opportunity. If you turn to page 6 you can read about the opportunities for cleaning food trucks with steam. Phil Petty is general manager at Williams Cleaning Systems in Bakersfield, CA, which sells steam cleaners to be used for cleaning and sanitizing. He says, “The Optima Steam [from manufacturer Steamericas] can be used for just about every part of the food truck. It can be used for spot cleaning on upholstery and other nonfood areas of the truck.”

George Erskin is co-owner of Cyclone Eco Cleaning in Sacramento, and he shares what parts of the truck are the best matches for steam. “Hands down, the flue and exhaust systems are prime candidates for steam cleaning,” he notes. Like every other food preparation facility food trucks need to be cleaned and meet with the regulator’s approval so there is a great business opportunity to clean them.

Also start your New Year off right by consulting the 2024 Sourcebook. This will allow you to have access to the right equipment and accessories for pressure washing, so your business can provide excellent pressure washing and steam cleaning services and grow your company’s profits. Contact information for industry manufacturers and suppliers is listed on page xx. On page xx a multitude of products are listed under the appropriate category heading so that you can get the equipment and supplies you need to gear up and be prepared for a successful year. The businesses listed on these pages are here to help you meet your 2024 goals by educating you about the correct pressure washers and accessories you need to purchase depending on the job so visit their websites and call them to get started.

Cleaner Times wishes you a Happy New Year and a successful 2024!
