In this LPW Europe blog, we outline the importance of removing traffic film off your fleet vehicles and share the best way to remove it.
Importance Of Safely Removing Traffic Film
Traffic film is the build up of dirt, oil, tar and dust that leaves an unsightly film on your fleet vehicles. Dirty fleet vehicles look unprofessional and can damage your business’ reputation.
Some traffic film components, such as iron fallout, brake fluid or tree sap can be particularly damaging for the paintwork of your fleet. It is important that these are removed as soon as possible. Plus, the layer of film can trap moisture, which will lead to rust on the metal components of your fleet vehicle.
To avoid damaging your fleet vehicles, traffic film should be removed carefully using the correct products. Some vehicle cleaning detergents are not strong enough to remove the stubborn film of dirt. Instead, you need a high-quality traffic film remover.
Choosing Traffic Film Remover
Traffic film remover is a strong solution designed and manufactured specifically to weaken the film of dirt and remove it safely without causing damage to your vehicle.
Unlike shampoos and cleaning snow, TFR should not be left on the vehicle for a long period of time. It does the job quickly and should be removed using a pressure washer.
There are various traffic film removers on the market. But if you are purchasing TFR for a fleet, you need to be sure of two things:
- That the TFR is of exceptional quality and will not damage your vehicles.
- That the TFR is available in large quantities (bulk) and can be delivered to your site.
At LPW Europe, we offer two types of Traffic Film Remover. Both have been scientifically manufactured and tested specifically for the cleaning of commercial vehicles. Better yet, they are available in 20litre, 200litre, 1000litre IBC and Bulk with free UK mainland delivery available.
