Facilities Maintenance

Clean Sweep, Inc. Power Sweeping Professionals - Chattanooga, Tennessee

The reasons to maintain your retail parking lots and surrounding entrance areas can directly effect your cash register.  

A litter filled parking lot will not only drive away a percentage of customers simply because of the appearance, it will also cause harm to your facilities.  When patrons visit your interior spaces after walking through a littered parking lot, their shoes will carry gravel and other harmful debri into your facilities.  This debri will cause damage to expensive floors and could even lead to legal issues when damaged facilities cause a patron to "slip and fall".  

You have worked hard to build your clientele, from the tenants in your facilities to the customers in their stores, be sure to invest in your long term strategy and keep your tenants and customers coming back year after year.

Our Retail Parking Lot services include:

  • Retail Power Sweeping Professionals
  • Vacuum sweep parking areas
  • Sweep drive lanes and rear of property
  • Parking Garage Sweeping
  • GPS Tracking

There are many reasons why parking lot sweeping is important. We invite you to check out our PDF handouts that emphasize these, as well as other information that shows why partnering with Clean Sweep as your service provider is an excellent fit.

What is Fugitive Dust?

Most property owners assume picking up trash translates to a clean parking area, but removing litter in plain sight is only part of the story.  Beneath visible debris, you’ll find dirt, road salt, and brake dust that wears out flooring and increases cleaning costs.  Keeping the inside of buildings clean is a good reason to sweep outside paved areas, but there is an equally important environmental consideration:  fugitive dust.  Microscopic particles of dried oil residue, pesticides / herbicides, and nutrients such as phosphorus and nitrogen are made airborne by breezes and the motion of passing cars, polluting our air and water.

 

Our Partnership with 1-800-SWEEPER has provided us with this informative video that explains exactly why fugitive dust should be a key consideration to anyone managing paved surfaces. At Clean Sweep, we can help. Contact us today!

Only Rain

Water is one of our most important natural resources and protecting that resource should be a top priority for business and individuals. There are many things that most people are aware of that impact water quality, however, some of the things that affect it the most go unnoticed. Street sweeping is, in fact, one of the best things cities and business owners can invest in for proper stormwater management and few people thinking of it this way. Consider the impact on water quality with these environmental results of street sweeping.

Stormwater Management

In one California city, a single year of street sweeping kept 220,000 pounds of debris out of storm drains. Different sweepers make a difference on how much is picked up. In this case, the Tymco 500x is used and is especially good at capturing miniscule particles. All sweepers do apart to prevent water and air pollution and to keep storm drains from getting backed up.

Wildlife Protection

Often roadside debris is not limited to normal or natural things like leaves and dirt. Unfortunately, humans add a particularly bad brand of garbage by tossing food and food containers on the roadside. This material often attracts animals out of their natural environment and into roadways where they are injured or killed.  Also, much of this food just isn’t healthy for animals. There are also containers and plastic pieces that can present choking hazards or be tangled around an animal’s body, wing, or leg.

Wetland Impact and Decreased Property Value

Runoff with high amounts of debris also damages wetlands leading to an unlivable environment for plant and animal life. Additionally, this ruins the aesthetics of these natural areas and can even bring down the value of surrounding properties.

Removal of Metal

Metal particles are a common part of the roadside debris that comes from vehicles and trash. These metals are detrimental to water life and other animals and even create air pollution by bonding to larger pieces. Larger metal pieces and other objects like rocks can also cause damage to cars, mostly by scraping the finish or hitting the underside.

Street sweeping is an often overlooked yet very important part of keeping our roads, waterways and air clean, but this nearly silent service has great impact. Stay on top of your sweeping needs with CLEAN SWEEP and do your part to keep your city clean and safe with our many local contractors available 24/7.

Sweeping and SWPPP 

All construction sites require a Stormwater Pollution Protection Plan. Power Sweeping is one of the most effective ways to mitigate tracked out and eroded soils. Keeping waterways clean and limiting airborne dust disturbed during construction may not initially seem like an area of attention for companies known for maintaining parking lots and sweeping municipal streets. Yet, many consider street sweeping to be the final line of defense keeping eroding and tracked soil and sediment off roads and out of storm water drainage systems. Our power broom sweeping and vacuum sweeping expertise is identified as one of the Best Management Practices (BMPs) for builders to carry out in connection with a qualified sediment and erosion control plan.

Water runoff that carries eroded silt,  sand, and soil from construction sites can overtax storm sewer systems as well as harm rivers, lakes, and coastal waters. The Federal EPA has developed rules to task home builders and other construction companies with developing and then maintaining a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) that recognizes and addresses erosion control.

A SWPPP however is more than just a sediment and erosion control plan. The SWPPP document describes all of the construction site operator’s activities to prevent stormwater contamination, control sedimentation and erosion, and comply with the requirements of the Clean Water Act. In larger construction companies, it is common to have a person on staff responsible for erosion and sediment control and stormwater management.

Although the EPA establishes a national standard definition, construction companies may come under the jurisdiction of a state, county, or even local stormwater anti-pollution regulations.

Same Approach – Different Names

Different state or regional Environmental Protection Agencies may reference a SWPPP as:

  • Construction Best Practices Plan
  • Sediment and Stormwater Plan
  • Erosion, Sediment, and Pollution Prevention Plan
  • Construction Site Best Management Practices Plan
  • Erosion Control Plan and Best Management Practices
  • Best Management Practices Plan
  • Erosion and Sediment Control Plan

Regardless of the title used in your state, these documents and associated stormwater permits required at active construction sites tend to have a number of common components. 1-800-SWEEPER’s role as our industry’s premier power sweeping service professionals is helping builders specify the most appropriate remediation for dirt tracked out of construction sites and provide the onsite expertise to keep our construction clients in compliance with these regulations.

Professional Erosion Control Certification And Continuing Education

Neither the EPA nor most individual states offer training and certification.  However, at the state level, regulations may require construction sites to have a certified individual available or even on-site at all times.

Several programs offer training and certification of individuals in erosion and sediment control. The Soil and Water Conservation Society and the International Erosion Control Association sponsor a national certification program, the Certified Professional in Erosion and Sediment Control (www.cpesc.org.)

As a  result of a detailed dialogue at the Sweeper Summit, 1-800-SWEEPER will soon be introducing a program that will offer our Partner companies discounted continuing education, training, and certification through StormwaterOne, a nationally recognized online training organization that specializes in storm water compliance training. Some 1-800-SWEEPER Partners are already certified and available for consultation and assistance in developing plans for construction site sweeping plans. Look for more details on our Stormwater One program in an upcoming news article and vendor partner announcement.

Helping construction companies keep dirt off the roadways and in compliance with the regulations gives all of us a cleaner environment.  If you are a construction company that requires road sweeping or storm drain vacuuming to comply with your SWPPP, contact  the knowledgeable, helpful construction sweeping vendors at 1-800-SWEEPER today!
