Maryland is called “the Old Line State,” a homage to its rich history of railways founded as far back as 1827. Although many railroads have been abandoned by now, Maryland still has multiple railway routes in use today, connecting different parts of the state and other states. Some of the Maryland railways still running today include the Maryland Midland Railway, the Tradepoint Rail, the Maryland & Delaware Railroad, and CSX Transportation. Jet Blast Inc. is happy to help keep these old lines running with our railroad cleaning services in Maryland.
The Necessity of Railroad, Tanker & Railcar Cleaning
Just like any object, railroad tracks, tankers & railcars become dirty, especially since they are continually outdoors facing the elements. When anything becomes dirty, it begins to lose its functionality or capacity of a tanker car. They will not work as well as if it is perfectly clean, causing excessive effort to make it function as normal. If rust, tar, debris, and dirt are caked onto the railroad tracks. Tankers or rail cars and causing travel to become less smooth, it is time to hire railroad cleaning services.
Why Water Blasting?
Water jet blasting is an excellent way to rid railroad tracks, tankers, railcars and many other commercial, industrial, and municipal surfaces of debris. The power of water can wash away hardened grime, oil & tar that would seem otherwise impossible to remove. Even as it takes away the filth, it will not harm the surface beneath it if the water jet operator calculates the water pressure accurately. On top of that, you won’t have any waste to clean up after the cleaning. Since it is only water, it will evaporate or drain away from the railroad site.
