All Kinds of Equipment to Efficiently Clean and Maintain Your Campus


From the time that prospective students and their families take their first tour of the campus to the class reunions, a clean campus is the best statement that you can make to visitors. Making sure that pathways are clear, parking lots and roads are free of debris, and leaves are cleaned out of grassy areas will be sure to make your campus more beautiful. Sometimes larger campuses also have a shuttle service with people-moving vehicles so they can carry people to and from classes. However, landscaping isn’t the only thing that needs constant attention. It is just as important to keep the inside of academic buildings clean. Pristine floors and surfaces can help stop the spread of bacteria and germs that people from around the world are bringing to school. As a result, it is more important than ever to make sure all surfaces are clean to keep facilities operating at full efficiency.

We offer several machines that make cleaning up leaves and other debris from roads, parking lots, campus paths, and quads a breeze. Some of the best machines for this task are Schwarze’s SuperVac Updraft and Super Updraft Sweepers. Both machines are mounted on pickup chassis and are perfectly sized for congested parking lots and narrow campus streets. These sweepers also are sized to dump their hoppers into traditional 4 or 6 cubit yard dumpsters, making it that much faster to get back to sweeping once the hopper is full. For Large leaf and debris buildups are easily handled by Xtreme Vac’s DCL800TM Series trailer-mounted collection units. These units are great as a standalone system and are built for the toughest jobs.

Another facet that needs to be investigated on some of the especially large campuses like NC State and both of UNC’s campuses is how to get students and faculty across the property quickly. Fortunately, the utility vehicles from Cushman can fit anywhere from 4 to 8 people per ride. There are also models that can sit 4 or 6 people that have a cargo bed to hold final projects as students get brought across campus to their presentations.

We also have a wide selection of machines that are perfect for cleaning academic buildings. As always, we recommend sweeping before scrubbing floors because the last thing you want is to damage your scrubber’s squeegee. Factory Cat’s Model 34 sweeper is great for cleaning the corners of rooms and hallways, and scrubbers in Timberline’s M Series are perfect for cleaning long hallways in academic buildings, while still being able to squeeze through small doorways. No matter the specifics of your campus or university, we’re here to help develop a plan and happy to help you find the perfect solution for the job at hand. We will walk you through the process and make sure you get the right equipment for your specific situation. Let’s start the conversation!
