  • How To Change Your Snow Foam Gauze With 4 Simple Steps

    Changing Your Snow Foam Gauze


    Have you ever had your snow foam lance stop producing good, thick foam?

    A reason for this could be the small, mesh gauze inside the head.

    Follow these quick and simple steps to have your snow foam lance working like new again:


    Tools required:

    • An adjustable spanner
    • A thin poking device (small screwdriver)
    • Long nose pliers (not essential but will help)
    • A new gauze 


    Step 1:

    Get your poking device and push the pin out of the black plastic nozzle.

    See below:


    With this removed now we can move on...


    Step 2 :

    The next step is to remove the brass stem so we can get to the gauze.

    Removing this brass stem will allow you to take out the foam gauze:



    This will be a 22mm spanner and turning this anti clockwise will loosen the fitting.


    Step 3:

    Once this is removed, get your long nose pliers and pull out the mesh gauze inside:




    It's usually this part which becomes clogged either by soap scum and/or hard water residue. If your lance is losing it's efficiency but isn't leaking, it is most likely going to be the gauze that needs replaced.


    Step 4:


    The final step is to now reassemble your snow foam lance.

    This is a very inexpensive and not very time consuming task to do. Doing this will keep your lance working like new and producing the foam that it should be.


    If you need the replacement Mesh you can find these on our store here

    We also have a wide variety of snow foam lances for most makes and models here 


    We hope these 4 easy steps have helped you change your old mesh gauze and made your lance like new without having to spend more money on a new purchase!

  • Mobile Valeting Start-Up

    Starting a Mobile Valeting business




    Why start a Mobile Valeting business?


    Starting a Mobile Valeting business can be very rewarding job. If you have a eye for detail and love cars then this could be the business for you.

    With millions of cars on the road today people like to have their cars clean. Therefore, the only options they have for this is to clean it themselves or pay someone to clean it for them.



    Most people do not have the time to clean their cars. Furthermore, going to a car wash and waiting is time consuming...


    Being a mobile valeter, you bring the "hassle" to them!



    What is needed for starting up?



    There are a few items that are essential for a valeting business:


    Firstly there will be a pressure washer. We have a previous post about Karcher pressure washers.




    These are great machines if you are a static car wash but, being a mobile valeter, you will need to run the pressure washer on a generator.

    Which is the next item needed...

    Generators are a power source that runs the pressure washer.

    These can come in different sizes, which will depend on the type of pressure washer you are using.



    Additional Extras :

    There can be many extras for valeting but not all are going to be needed for starting up.

    Upholstery cleaners  are a great way to wet/dry clean seats and carpets inside cars. This can be done with a standard vacuum if you are just starting out.

    Snow foam lances are great for applying thick chemicals to start the cleaning process of the outside detailing.

    High Pressure Hoses/Extensions  additional hoses and even back up hoses are great to have to provide extra length (if needed when you are unable to get close enough) but are also great for a back up hose as you do not want to be in the middle of a detail and the hose bursts.

    Hose Reels are great for keeping organised on site. When the hose is not in use or you are finished with it then just wind it up and it will be out the way.


    Best Mobile Valeting Start-up System


    After all the information above, it might seem difficult to know what is required.

    However, we have started a package that will get your business off the ground and also offer the extras to take the business to the next level.


    Mobile start-up valeting system 




    We have included a Kranzle K7/122 as the pressure washer of choice...

    This is a light, portable and powerful pressure washer with brass head components for industrial use.

    A 210 litre tank for a source of water, this will come with a quick release connection and ball valve.

    A Loncin LC3000-AS AVR generator which is more then capable of running the pressure washer.

    We also include a hose reel and snow foam lance which will give you that little extra for your start up.


    Affordable Mobile Valeting System


    If you're looking to start your business, now is a great time...

    The cost of starting up does not always have to break the bank. 

    For a limited time, we are offering 5% discount on our system to help you start and build your own business in the detailing world. 

    To have this discount applied, insert discount code MOBVAL5 upon checkout.

    We have options for higher quality home use including vehicle cleaning or exterior cleaning around your home and garden.

    Maybe you have, or are thinking of starting, a home / mobile valeting, vehicle cleaning or car wash business?

    If you are an established business, you might need a Kärcher industrial power washer for cleaning your vehicles, equipment, premises or cleaning around your yard.

    With 20 years experience in the pressure washer industry, we will try to use our expertise to recommend the correct machine for your job.


    What is a pressure washer?


    Karcher compact pressure washer

    A pressure washer uses a pump coupled to an electric motor, engine or other power source to create a high pressure, medium flow of water. This dislodges dirt quicker and more effectively than you can with a brush, sponge or garden hose on its own.

    Karcher divide their power washer range into two categories:

    1. Home & Garden

    2. Professional

    We at Cleantec focus on the professional range.

    The professional range of cold water Karcher pressure washers are known as HD models. HDS models can produce hot water which greatly enhances the cleaning process but involves a greater initial purchase cost. 


    Why choose Karcher?


    Karcher is a world leader in the manufacture and distribution of pressure washers and other related cleaning equipment.

    Established 1935 in Stuttgart, Germany by Alfred Karcher, they invented the first hot water pressure washer in 1950. With constant emphasis on innovation, Karcher continue to lead the way in worldwide and groundbreaking cleaning technology.


    What Karcher to choose?


    Choosing the most suitable pressure washer depends on, among other factors, the cleaning task, frequency of use and available budget to meet all your cleaning needs.

    Lets focus first on home users or less demanding professional users such as people who will be cleaning vehicles on the weekend and some garden/patio cleaning or light industrial cleaning.

    For this, we would advise something small and compact. It needs to be moved around and stored easily but capable of more than the cheap DIY versions.


    Karcher HD 5/11 P £509.99

    Firstly, the Kärcher HD 5/11 P offers professional quality and performance in a truly portable package.

    It is light weight, has compact dimensions and a built-in carry handle. This makes it very easy to transport, even up steps or ladders.

    It also has features usually found on much more expensive machines - automatic pressure relief feature, the Easy Press trigger gun/lance and a hydraulic rubber hose.

    It has places for accessories to be stored on-board and can be operated in a vertical or horizontal position which is safer for use at height or on uneven ground.

    Karcher Hot Washers


    Despite cold water pressure washers doing what is needed for most jobs, sometimes hot water pressure washers are the correct option. Heated water is effective at lower pressure, therefore less likely to damage sensitive surfaces.

    A hot water pressure washer is ideally suited to the removal of oily or adherent dirt in the shortest time possible. Depending on the type of dirt, hot water can be up to 50% more efficient than cold water and has a shorter drying time.

    Hot water softens congealed oil and grease and significantly improves emulsification, making it very easy remove soiling. In the food industry, proteins and grease can be loosened extremely effectively with hot water.

    Using hot water reduces the need for as much detergent which lowers chemical bills and is better for the environment.



    Karcher HDS 5/11 UX £1429.99

    Firstly, the Kärcher HDS 5/11 UX is the perfect machine for light-medium duty cleaning tasks where time is of the essence. With its unique compact, up-right design it is easy to move or transport and has a small storage footprint.
