Vehicle Decontamination

Chris & Dave decontaminating with a Honda pressure washer.

DJ's are now using low-cost pressure washing equipment to decontaminate our cars.

Summer weed seeds and phylloxera are both most likely to be spread during summer. Weeds like Innocent Weed have set seed in McLaren Vale, while phylloxera crawlers are at their most active both above and below ground during the months of December – March. Therefore harvest time is a particularly high risk period for spreading.

DJ's has a PPW 2700 Pressure washer for decontamination work. This unit is available for $1200 inc GST.
