Why Turnaround Time Matters: How RedLine Gear Cleaning’s On-Site Service Can Save Lives

by | May 5, 2023

As a firefighter, you know that your turnout gear is essential to your safety on the job. It protects you from heat, flames, and other hazards that you encounter while fighting fires. But did you know that your gear can also be a source of danger if it’s not cleaned and decontaminated regularly?

That’s why it’s important to choose a turnout gear cleaning service that prioritizes turnaround time, like RedLine Gear Cleaning’s on-site service.

Turnaround time is the amount of time it takes for your turnout gear to be cleaned and inspected after it’s been used on the job. The longer it takes, the more you’re at risk of exposure to harmful toxins and carcinogens that can cause cancer and other health problems. That’s why turnaround time matters – it can literally save lives.

At RedLine Gear Cleaning, we understand the importance of fast turnaround time. That’s why we offer a same day service that allows us to clean and inspect your turnout gear at your fire station using our Mobile Extraction Unit®. This means that you can have your gear cleaned and back in service on the same day, minimizing your downtime and reducing the risk of exposure to harmful toxins.

Our same-day service is a game-changer for firefighters. It allows you to focus on your job without worrying about when your gear will be ready for use again. You can trust us to get the job done quickly and effectively, so you can get back to doing what you do best – protecting your community.

RedLine Gear Cleaning was born out of frustration with how long traditional gear cleaning companies take. When RedLine Gear Cleaning founder, Mike Matros, was told by his Chief that he wouldn’t get his gear back for two weeks, Mike knew there had to be a better solution.

But why is it important to choose a turnout gear cleaning service with a fast turnaround time like RedLine Gear Cleaning? The answer is simple – your safety depends on it. If your gear isn’t cleaned and inspected promptly, you’re at risk of exposure to harmful toxins and carcinogens that can cause serious health problems. That’s why we have gone so far as to offer a specific service called Rapid Response. Our Rapid Response service allows fire departments to get their gear cleaned within 24 hours of a major incident within our serviceable areas. So while we offer same-day cleaning for all of our customers, we also offer 24 hour scheduling for when you can’t wait for your gear to be cleaned.

We encourage you to prioritize the cleaning and inspection of your turnout gear for your own safety and the safety of your fellow firefighters. Contact us today to learn more about our on-site service and receive a free quote!
