Commercial Sweeping Services

Commercial sweeping services are an important part of the regular maintenance of any facilities parking lot. A sweeping service will not only remove general liter from your parking lot, a sweeping machine can remove sand and dirt too.

A dirty parking lot is an eye sore for the people visiting or living and working at your facility. Foreign objects like sand, dirt, paper, plastic, and other discarded items will shorten the life of your asphalt pavement. Removing these objects is important because if left unattended, these substances can have a deteriorating effect on your parking lots sealcoating and line striping. Additionally, leaving trash and other debris on the ground in your parking lot can also clog storm drains causing standing water issues as well as pollute the local water supply.

Sweeping Services Equipment

Using top of the line sweeping equipment, with rotating gutter brooms that will clean right up to your curbs, sweeping companies can provide a variety of services for retail shopping centers, commercial property manager, hospitals, schools, industrial facilities and more.

Using backpack blowers prior to sweeping, your facilities walkways, corners and other areas inaccessible to the sweeping equipment will be cleaned as well.

If you’re seeing trash building up in the corners of your parking lot or trash accumulating in your landscaping, perhaps it is time to consider switching your sweeping service to a more detail orientated company!

More than just Sweeping

Whether your parking lot needs a one-time clean-up or service on a regular monthly schedule, contracting with a professional, local sweeping company is ideal; however, a facility maintenance company can provide sweeping services as well as complete facility services too. If you need pressure washing, bulk debris removal, hydro-cleaning, day porter services, asphalt repair, commercial painting or other maintenance services, a full service facility maintenance company can assist you with all of these issues. Making one phone call, all of your maintenance problems can be solved!

The Bottom Line

Sweeping services offer more value to your business than you may think. In fact, commercial sweeping services can improve your business. Studies have shown that the cleanliness of a parking area ranks as a top factor in determining where people shop and conduct business. It's that simple.
