Wash On Wheels Truck Fleet Clients Increase Truck Washing to Prevent Damage From Colorado's Winter

While slushy winter roads make truck washing more desirable, it’s the prevention of damage that makes it critical. Colorado’s Department of Transportation (CDOT) uses magnesium chloride on the highways to keep them clear of ice and snow.

More frequent truck washing is necessary to prevent vehicle damage from chemicals used to reduce ice and snow on the roads. Magnesium chloride and other types can cause problems with all vehicles. But it’s more noticeable on commercial vehicles because they spend more time on the road.

In addition, the undersides of commercial vehicles are more exposed than a typical passenger vehicle. The brake drums are open on the inside to allow better dissipation of the heat caused by the braking needed for all that weight. And the wiring is more exposed on the open design of box trucks and tractor-trailer combinations.

"Many of our clients go from one truck wash per month to two or more washes per month. While more frequent truck washing won’t completely prevent damage from magnesium chloride, it will reduce the impact and needed repairs,” said Joel Shorey, President of Wash On Wheels.

Shorey has the experience to know what he’s talking about. He spent many years driving tractor-trailers over the road and has more than 2.5 million miles without a moving violation or chargeable accident. He hauled oversize loads to mines in Canada and Alaska where most of the roads are only two lanes. His winter driving includes trips as far north as Labrador City, Newfoundland and Fairbanks, Alaska.
