Parking Lot Sweeping Services

Why should you keep your parking area clean?

Well maintained parking areas and sidewalks are a key to attracting customers. Studies have shown that cleanliness ranks as one of the top factors in determining where people shop. Many people consider exterior cleanliness to be as important as interior cleanliness.

Protect Your Pavement

Sand, rock and debris act as an abrasive. Removing them regularly assists in preventing pot holes, cracking, and striping erosion. Resurfacing costs are tremendous! By sweeping outside of office and other buildings, inside floor maintenance can also be reduced through the removal of the street-based abrasive material.

Protect Your Environment

Storm water runoff is fast becoming a factor in our environment. Sweeping your parking area on a regular basis can help to minimize pollutants in your storm water stream. Sweeping leaves, debris, and litter also prevents storm drain system clogging. Removal of trash by sweeping also helps to control insects and rodents. Have a sweeping company eliminate excessive expense by performing the job properly and efficiently, as well as in the timeframe specified.
