What Is Power Sweeping?

If you are managing a parking lot, you know how important it is to maintain it. Proper maintenance will prevent damage, promote longevity of the parking lot, and keep your business looking professional. That’s why it’s important to make power sweeping a regular part of your maintenance.

You may be wondering what this service actually is. A commercial truck that is equipped with multiple sweeping mechanisms is used to keep your parking lot clean. It will remove sand, dirt, oil, and everyday trash. But why would you need the service as a business owner or property manager?

Why You Need Regular Power Sweeping

First, debris that collects on surfaces is abrasive. When cars drive over it and people walk over it, the pressure is placed on the even surface. Over time, this will start to wear away at the surface. This means that you will need to perform repairs on the surface more regularly.

Second, things like rocks, trash, and sand can be hazardous to your customers. Somebody may end up slipping and get seriously hurt. Sand, in particular, is incredibly slippery on asphalt. You want to do everything you can to protect customers and avoid potential lawsuits.

Third, you want to get rid of debris on surfaces to protect your property from storms. During a storm, the water will flow out to a storm drain. If you haven’t cleared your parking lot of debris, it will buildup and clog up your storm drain. This can result in a difficult situation where you will have to hire a sewage company to resolve the clog.

Finally, keeping your property clean is appealing to your customers. If you’re a business owner, you want to make sure that your business appears professional. If you don’t maintain your property, you’re going to get a buildup of trash from patrons as well as people passing by.

The buildup of trash is going to make people look less favorably at your business. With proper maintenance, you uphold the professionalism of your business and will attract more potential customers to your business.
