  1. Initial Assessment

    Our trained technicians inspect the area where your buses will be cleaned. Often times it's inside the bus garage and can require hanging plastic to protect tools and parts from getting wet or greasy. Whether we're washing outside on mobile lifts, out of a wash pit, or inside the bus garage, we make sure the job is done safely and efficiently.

  2. Under Carriage Degreasing

    Using 220-degree steam at a water flow of up to 14 GPM and 3000 psi, we apply a powerful degreasing solution that melts grease. This high-temperature, high-pressure method ensures the effective removal of oil and grease buildup from the bus body, engine compartment, and undercarriage.

  3. Engine Degreasing

    A clean engine compartment is crucial for inspections. We carefully degrease the engine exterior, removing accumulated oil, grease, and dirt without causing damage to electrical or sensitive components.

  4. Exterior Cleaning

    Optionally we can clean the bus's exterior, ensuring that all markings, windows, and emergency exit doors are free from dirt and contaminants. Our technicians also pay attention to the bumpers, wheels, and other critical areas that require a deep clean.

  5. Final Inspection

    After degreasing, your staff and our expert conduct a comprehensive final inspection to ensure every bus meets the high standards required for inspection. Any remaining areas are carefully touched up to ensure that the fleet is fully inspection-ready.

  6. Clean Up

    Once we complete all your school buses, we do a thorough clean of the area, separating the grease from waste water to dispose of responsibly.

School Bus Degreasing FAQs

Contact us
  • How often should school buses be degreased for optimal maintenance?

    The frequency of degreasing depends on usage and environmental factors. For fleets operating daily in challenging conditions or urban areas with a lot of road debris and pollutants, buses should be degreased every 6-12 months. Those used less frequently or in cleaner environments may only need it annually. We highly recommend at least once yearly.

  • What contaminants does the degreasing process remove?

    Our degreasing process effectively removes oil, grease, dirt, road salts, and other contaminants that accumulate on bus exteriors, engine compartments, and undercarriages. This comprehensive cleaning helps meet the cleanliness criteria for Ohio school bus inspections.

  • Will the degreasing process affect the engine or sensitive components?

    No, the degreasing process is designed to clean the engine compartment without damaging any electrical or sensitive components. Our technicians take extra care to protect these areas during the cleaning process.

  • How long does it take to degrease a school bus fleet?

    The time required depends on the size of the fleet and the level of buildup. For individual buses with moderate buildup, degreasing typically takes 15-30 minutes. For fleets, the process is optimized to clean multiple buses efficiently while maintaining high quality. The amount of time it takes depends on how efficiently the buses can be prepared for the degreasing. Without a hitch, we can do 30+ school bus degreases in a day.

  • Do you provide mobile services to our location?

    Yes, we provide fully mobile power washing services. Our team comes to your location, minimizing downtime and allowing you to focus on your operations without transporting the fleet to an off-site facility.

  • Does the cleaning meet the Ohio State Highway Patrol’s School Bus Inspection Standards?

    Absolutely. Our cleaning process is tailored to meet and exceed Ohio’s school bus inspection criteria. We ensure the buses are inspection-ready by thoroughly degreasing the exterior and engine compartment to remove contaminants that could interfere with the inspection process.
