Like all machinery and equipment, regular use of spray equipment over time results in normal wear and tear. However, it is also true that regular maintenance and simple repairs or adjustments that are done when needed, prolongs the life and the proper functioning of your machinery and spray equipment. Oftentimes, the minor issues that are left untended, and the lack of routine maintenance of your spray equipment result in major problems that are not only far more costly, but also can have a huge impact on the overall efficiency of your business.

That chill that you’re feeling in the air means a number of different things: winter is in full force, it’s time to plan your Super Bowl party, and your business may be smack dab in the middle of its slow season (or at least shifting to another seasonal service). That likely means less use for your spray equipment.

Any chemicals or residue left in the system can saturate into soft components such as hoses and valves, weakening them to the point of not functioning properly when you first start your sprayer back up again. Plus, having leftover residue in the system increases the chances of cross-contamination if you use your sprayer for multiple purposes.Read More
