The Twelve Days of Christmas With Hydro Cleansing | 1. Mega-Heat

“On the first day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me,
Hydro Cleansing’s Mega-Heat…”

The twelve day countdown to Christmas has officially begun, so to celebrate and boost our festive cheer, we will be posting on the blog EVERY DAY UNTIL CHRISTMAS! Each one of our posts will be specifically  focused around one of our services, starting with our very own Mega-Heat! So sit back, relax, and let the Hydro Cleansing Christmas content fest begin!

Put simply, Mega-Heat is a high pressure, high temperature  jetting service… however, if you dig a little deeper, you’ll see that it is so much more! It can reach temperatures of up to 105°C and jet at up to 3000psi. Worried about chemicals or damaging surfaces? Not with Mega-Heat! The power and heat that this impressive bit of kit combines make tackling oil spills, graffiti or dirty guttering fast and hassle free for our expert engineers, without having to use any abrasive or chemical products.

Mega-Heat is one of our key fleet members that we use to tackle a variety of problems around London and the South East. From blasting off chewing gum on the busy streets of our capital, to making industrial machinery sparkle, we offer unrivalled efficiency and manoeuvrability. This is in part thanks to our unique van mounting; usually a unit with these capabilities would be carried on the back of a trailer, or by a team. By custom mounting ours into the van, we are able to access and start work immediately. This cuts down response time, the number of vehicles needed and ultimately the time needed to complete the job.

Some of the jobs that Mega-Heat can be used for are:

Graffiti Removal
– Concrete Cleaning –
– Gutter Cleaning –
– Stone & Building Cleaning –
Oil, Fat & Grease Removal
– Floor Cleaning –
– Chewing Gum Removal –
– Paint Removal –

Inside Victorian Confined Space Work and Pump Station Maintenance

Hydro Cleansing are passionate about keeping drainage infrastructure running cleanly. From sewers to loos; from pump station maintenance to flood response, our mission is to clean it up and dispose of it safely. It’s a simple mission but one we fulfil with more creativity and innovation than anyone else!

We are passionate about pump station maintenance, so we’re excited to tell you about the little known marvel of engineering that is the Victorian Pump Station behind Surrey Street in Croydon.

This fresh water pump station was one of the first ever built. Baldwin Latham Engineering designed and built this innovative structure and also wrote a guide to sanitary engineering and sewer construction in London.

Victorian engineering developed at an incredible rate. The pace of development in the cities is comparable to today’s digital revolution. Some things don’t change however. The Victorian saying,

“a man should look to his drains before he furnishes his drawing room,”

is as true as ever. The need to clear drainage is as much a necessity now as it was then. Excellent installation, maintenance and repair provide peace of mind. In the Victorian era this was achieved in a very basic fashion compared to how Hydro Cleansing do it!

Safety and efficiency in confined space work are delivered beyond what Victorian engineers could imagine. Their PPE consisted of a hat and boots, today our confined space engineers are kept a lot safer! In the Victorian age, the confined space operatives would pull ploughs through the sewers to unblock them! Thankfully innovation has led to Megatron’s power to decimate blockages in hours through the simple power of high pressure water and vacuum suction. Baldwin and Latham would be amazed! Bazalgette probably saw it coming though!
