4 Considerations When Hiring A Street Sweeping Service

4 Considerations When Hiring A Street Sweeping Service

Street sweeping encompasses a broad range of power sweeping service types offered by 1-800-SWEEPER Partners.  Used by municipalities, construction site managers, commercial property managers, parking lot owners and more, the benefits of power sweeping include improved aesthetics, enhanced environmental cleanliness and an improved representation of  community pride and awareness.

 

When choosing to hire a street sweeping service, four primary considerations will be helpful in the selection process.

What type of roadway area is in need of sweeping?  This could include residential streets, municipal roads, industrial sites, state highways or construction sites.  Different types of sweeping equipment are used depending on the surface type and frequency. The cost of sweeping will not only depend on the type of sweeping but also the equipment needed as well.

What type and volume of debris is needed to be swept?  Although asphalt and concrete are the most common surface types for street sweeping, other variables include curb style, type and quantity of debris and specialty surfaces. Airport runways and permeable pavement may require specialized road sweeping equipment.  It is important to be aware that the type and volume of debris substantially affects pricing, as it controls the productivity rate for the equipment used.

Environmental regulations are another factor to consider as many states and municipalities have rules requiring sweeping paved surface areas in a timely manner.  The reasons for this can include reducing negative environmental impact, such as polluted stormwater runoff and fugitive dust, to maintain community environmental standards for water and air quality originating from paved surfaces that require sweeping.
