Pressure Washing and Hospital Accounts

Most pressure washing companies never look into some of the best niche markets. One, which you may not have thought about is Hospitals and if you run a pressure washing company it can mean good steady income. When contract cleaning you must figure out the needs of your clientele; Hospitals have special needs, which are not common to other businesses and if you are careful to address these needs you will be well served. One recommendation I give pressure washing companies is to bundle services. This does two things; 1.) It prevents price wars with low bidders or first time entrants into the industry and 2.) It enhances the monthly invoices for services rendered.

Hospitals often own ambulances, shuttles, wheel chairs, delivery trucks, grounds vehicles, security vehicles and even air-ambulance helicopters. This on top of the obvious things such, as lots of concrete, entryways, handicap ramps, trash areas and sidewalks.

When approaching the Hospitals Purchasing or Procurement Offices you should first look around the facilities and see what they own and then consider how you might wash each item and have in mind some basic pricing incase you are called upon to make a bid. It behooves you to be smart about it and set up a meeting to discuss their needs and then have all the right answers for them. First and fore most be sure to have a copy of your insurance policy handy, along with your business license and any environmental permits for you local region. Once they know you are legitimate, you will then be able to discuss the business of routine cleaning of their entire hospital and grounds.
