These generators have to cope with more than just the weather. Apart from the impact of rain and snow, they also have to contend with dust, sand, moss, Insects, oil contamination and pollution.
Keeping Wind Turbines clean and free of debris makes sure that everything runs at peak efficiency because individual components can perform at their best – for example the blades will then have less wind resistance and clean gearboxes run more smoothly.
A clean wind turbine, apart from working better and looking smarter, also ensures that there is less ground contamination.
So who does the cleaning? How do they get up there? What do they do?
Trained professionals climb up with ladders and ropes to gain safe access to exterior of the tower, control rooms and turbine blades. The checks are exhaustive and apart from cleaning the dirt on the blades through scrubbing or power washing, will also encompass checking grease fitting, gear oil, brake pads, electronic systems and the tightness of all the bolts – quite a task.

If only pets could clean up after themselves – how cool would it be to have Rex the dog clean his muddy paw marks. How great would it be if he could operate a washing machine? Well until that time comes it is up to us to make sure that pet spaces are clean as possible, not only for ours’ but also our pets’ health. Here Are Some Simple Green Tips For Cleaning Pet Space:
Don't let that mess set
The faster you clean up the mess, the easier it will be…and the less likely stains will set.
Clean outside the stained area
Liquid messes seep downward and outward, so be sure to also clean the area surrounding the visible stain.
Save those old rubber gloves
Old rubber gloves are great for wiping dog and cat hair off furniture and clothes.
Mats and area rugs
Placing mats under your pet's dish and leaving small area rugs for them to lounge on really saves time and keeps rooms tidy.

One of your worst nightmares…accidentally filling the water tank with fuel – bad enough if it is your own motorhome, scary if it’s a rental.
But don’t beat yourself up! It happens to people more often than you’d imagine. Luckily all is not lost and before you think about replacing the water tank there’s a very good chance that you can solve the problem quite easily.
We’ve had a number of customers who have faced this predicament. With a little bit of effort, following a simple procedure, you can fix the problem.
We’ve had excellent results with Simple Green Crystal. Crystal is a highly effective, concentrated, all-purpose degreaser and cleaner formulated for critical cleaning applications that demand a fragrance-free solution. Crystal contains a blend of highly effective surfactants that are activated by cold or warm water and is an ideal and effective degreaser/cleaner for such situations. Specially developed for the food and health industries, Crystal is NSF labelled A1, A2, A4, A8, B1 and C1 for use in food processing and handling facilities.
What To Do If You’ve Put Diesel In The Water Tank
First flush the motorhome’s water tank out several times and then start as follows:
Mix 4L of Simple Green Crystal with the contents of the tank i.e. 4 L to 46 L water roughly a 1:10 dilution (note if you can use warm water that’s better - no need to go over 40 degrees C)
Leave for a couple of hours at least then flush out
Flush through the whole system with water
Mix 2L of Simple Green with the content of the tank
Leave it in for an hour then flush out
Flush the whole system with water
Mix the 1 Litre of Simple Green with the content of the tank
Leave for 30 minutes then flush out
Flush the tank out with water
This should have done the trick but if not then depending on how bad it is then either do another 1L or go to 0.5L and continue.
And…to avoid using too much, check after each flush out of water and between the steps, to see if it has already worked.
