Street Sweepers to Effectively Clean and Maintain Your Roads and Parking Areas


It’s no secret that dirty streets leave a poor impression on visitors, especially if it’s their first time traveling to your city. Nobody wants to take a walk down main street just to find fast food bags on the sidewalk. Not only are dirty roads and parking lots visually unappealing, but they can also be dangerous both to drivers and to the environment. A tiny piece of sharp metal or shard of glass could cut a tire and cause a pileup, or a dusty turn could cause a driver to lose traction in a dangerous way. Debris can also clog storm drains, causing water buildup on the surface, and then collection systems can bring contaminated runoff into either the local bodies of water or into the sewer system. It’s really just a lot easier to keep streets and parking lots free of soil than it is to try and manage the results of negleting them.

There are a few different types of street sweepers that offer different benefits over others. Mechanical sweepers user brooms to push dirt and debris under the sweeper and then up and into the collection hopper. While mechanical street sweepers are superb at picking up larger debris, they can have a difficult time picking up finer particles like sand. Then there are vacuum sweepers that can do a little better with smaller chunks. These sweepers use the side brooms to push debris under the middle of the sweeper, where a vacuum then sucks everything up into the hopper. Regenerative Air sweepers are the most environmentally friendly kind of street sweeper. They have the ability to clean a large path, can remove smaller debris more efficiently than mechanical sweepers, and release less exhaust and particulates back into the environment. No matter how large the lot or how narrow the streets you need to clean, 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!
