three ways
  • Here are three of the most common ways to clean and sanitize plastic pallets:
    • Manual cleaning
    • Steam cleaning
    • Automated high pressure washers
1. manual cleaning
As the name suggests, you can manually clean the pallets with an all-purpose soap. However, before you use water, you should first use an air compressor to remove any signs of dirt, leftover debris from products, grass, twigs, and other similar substances.

Once the pallets are free of dust and other spills, you can wet them and use a strong soap to manually clean them. Water and soap are the easiest and most economical way to clean plastic pallets.
2. steam cleaning
Another thing that you can use is a steam cleaner. The heat in the steam will kill bacteria. It is important to sterilize the pallets as they could contain harmful chemicals. Using temperatures as high as 165 F can ensure good results.
3. automated high pressure washers
A pressure washer is the third way to clean pallets. This is more effective if you have a lot of pallets and cleaning them manually is difficult for you.

High pressure washers along with an all-purpose soap can be useful to sanitize plastic pallets. Washers come in different sizes, speed and water options, so make sure to pick one based on the number of pallets you need to clean.

It is essential to regularly wash and clean the pallets and these three ways can give you long lasting, cleaner, and more hygienic pallets.
