Preventive maintenance can feel like downtime but, in reality, it is downtime prevention – significant downtime prevention. Making and keeping regular appointments to have expert eyes on your professional cleaning equipment – especially your truckmounts – helps ensure that every job you’re hired for goes smoothly and is completed without any breakdowns or problems along the way.

What to Expect from Truckmount Preventive Maintenance

Daily inspections of filters and fluid levels are a necessity with it comes to hardworking truckmounts, and you can do this work on your own, but this solo effort isn’t enough to keep your machine going for the long haul. Regular carpet cleaning truckmount maintenance and service are vital to the life of your truckmount so you can avoid costly downtime and preventable repairs.

Preventive maintenance from Michigan Maintenance Supply includes an oil change and multipoint inspection that is a deep dive into your machine. We will check:

  • Fluid levels: engine oil, battery fluid, vacuum blower oil, high pressure pump oil
  • Hoses and belts: fan belt, fuel hose and connections, vacuum blower belt, water supply hose, high pressure hoses
  • Systems: coolant, heating, chemical delivery, air cleaner
  • Filters: waste tank, heating system, pump seals and valves
  • Performance: wand spray, wand vacuum
  • Condition: fuel pump, battery terminal, water supply inlet strainer, vacuum blower

You may receive a recommendation to replace the timing belt. Prochem truckmounts in particular should receive this upgrade every two years or 2,000 hours. If there is a component that is near its life expectancy, it’s better to find that out when your truckmount is in the shop for a tune-up than in the middle of a job.
