Each topic presents the comparisons, benefits, and selection of proper cleaning methods for various types of equipment. Also included are sample problems, job calculations, and discussions on how to plan and prepare for each type of cleaning job. “DOs and DON’Ts” are explained, and each participant is invited to participate in group discussions by briefly describing a bad or unusual problem job they have experienced.
The author, Jim Vinson, then analyzes each problem job, and discusses what things could have been done to avoid the observed problem, and explains “Why & Why Not” for the critical points.
Expectations vs. Realities for desired results are examined and by explaining the theory, physics, and chemistry of each job type, one can easily come up with recommendations for choosing the proper cleaning method for each problem that needs solving.
