CB Trailer Washout is an eco-friendly, mobile auto detailing company specializing in truck and trailer washes. Washing a trailer out after each load removes possible residue and germs, ensuring you don’t contaminate the new cargo. We offer a wide selection of cleaning services, ranging from a basic maintenance wash to a more in-depth detail cleaning.
Making sure your trailer is sanitary is crucial, especially if you are hauling food products, pharmaceuticals, or refrigerated products. Dirty trailers can cause a wide range of problems, including:
- Mold and mildew
- Food-borne illnesses
- Rodent and insect infestation
A simple spray-out is not sufficient to ensure a refrigerated unit is clean — food product, dirt, fragments of broken crates and moisture can fall between the slats and accumulate, causing mold and mildew to grow and also creating perfect conditions for pests like rats and cockroaches to breed and spread disease. To ensure the trailer is properly sanitized, the slats must be removed and a complete brush wash clean-out of the trailer performed using USDA applicable products.
Cleaning a truck also protects your investment — thorough cleaning removes corrosive agents such as oils, salt, and dirt, extending the life of your vehicle’s paint and undercarriage. However, it’s important to use biodegradable and non-corrosive cleaning agents to protect both your vehicle and the environment.
Trailer Washouts and Wash Standards
FSMA and DFA Trailer Wash Regulations
The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) puts more responsibility on food shippers to set and enforce cleanliness guidelines to prevent contamination of the U.S. food supply — if your trailer isn’t spotless, you risk being rejected for the load. Trailers must be washed out between every load and the hauler must document the process. CB Trailer Washout partners with you to assure compliance with these strict new rules.
