Chattanooga Power Sweeping Services for HOAs, Gated Communities, Private Communities and more...  Clean Sweep, Inc.Top 10 Benefits of Power Sweeping for HOA, Gated, and Private Communities

Home Owner Associations, gated and private communities are unique. They usually provide a higher measure of privacy than other types of residential properties. However, the properties would never be attractive to tenants and buyers if they remained dirty, untidy, and neglected.

One of the best ways of keeping these communities clean is through power sweeping and related services.

Stormwater:  Everyone usually learns that Power Sweeping is the first defense for stormwater management and keeping your drinking water safe from harmful chemicals, debris and other harzards that may not be filtered out in the water filtration systems of most public water utilities.

The following are 10 additional benefits of power sweeping beyond stormwater management, for these types of communities.

Improved Aesthetic Appeal

One of its major benefits is the aesthetic appeal it increases in the HOA, gated and private communities. The parking areas, driveways, and pavement surfaces within these communities will remain clean, thus making them more beautiful.

Reduced Amount of Dirt

Apart from this, it cuts the amount of dirt, chemicals, fuel, debris and other fugitive particles that become tracked into the residential properties and garages within these communities. Consequently, homeowners in these communities enjoy an improved quality of life, improved air quality and longer lasting flooring.

Increases Property Values

Power sweeping helps homeowners who want to sell their properties to fetch higher value. The reason for this is clean, well-kept properties often attract higher rates. Clean sidewalks, streets, and pavements make the properties more valuable.

Saves Time

Power sweeping is a time-saver. Many communities fall under federal and state guidelines that require some form of street cleaning and storm water management, power sweeping is an amazing alternative to attempting to sweep all the parking areas, streets, or driveways by hand. It takes less time compared to hiring a team of cleaners who would spend hours on end sweeping a limited space.

Saves Money

Additionally, power sweeping is cost effective. Guidelines often include EPA fines, local fines or other requirements that could spiral out of control and ultimately cost more than the preventative effort of hiring a power sweeping service from the beginning.

Positive Impact on the Environment

Power sweeping is great for the entire environment. It does not spread or distribute dirt and debris all over the place. Instead, sucks all dirt and debris into its collection chambers where it is hauled off and disposed of in an environmentally friendly and often times regulated process.

Not Noisy

Power sweeping is not as noisy as you might think.  Most modern sweeping vehicles have been engineered to be more effective than ever before while emitting lower noise pollution than other commercial vehicles throughout the industry. Therefore, the sweeper can proceed with its work without anybody noticing, for the most part. It does not inconvenience the residents of the HOAs, gated and private communities. Power sweeping services can even be scheduled during daytime hours while families are away at work and school or in early morning hours when people are usually fast asleep.

Reduces Member Complaints

Power sweeping also reduces and in some cases eliminates complaints by members or residents of these communities. Where complaints regarding noise pollution, disruption, and damage to cars or property have been rife, the professional power sweeping company will improve the quality of life for the entire community.

Protects Pavement Surfaces

Power sweeping protects the pavement surfaces. It reduces the rate at which these surfaces deteriorate. The abrasive and destructive nature of sand, dirt, fuel leaks, chemicals, spills and any other type of debris makes them dangerous to the pavement surfaces. In the end, it helps the entire community save money that would have gone into repairs or in most cases, a shortened lifespan of the entire pavement system resulting in quicker need to contract a completely new street surface.

Good for Landscaped Areas

Lastly, power sweeping protects the landscaped areas within your communities. In areas that are not protected by the benefits of power sweeping, the chemicals and other hard debris will eventually permeate the rich soils required for a beautiful landscape and eventually destroy or at the very least reduce it’s overall curb appeal look.

UTC Fuel Spill - Clean Sweep assisted Highway Environmental Services in their Hazmat Response efforts to return the environment to a clean safe zone for students of UTC.

Chattanooga Fire Department Hazmat crews responded to a fuel leak in the 300 block of MLK Boulevard on Monday, August 14th 2017. 

The spill was from diesel fuel leaked by a Waste Connections truck. Waste Connections is the company that provides trash services for the local college, University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.

There were no injuries and while there is no clear estimate on the amount of fuel that spilled, Clean Sweep, Inc. and Highway Environmental Response teams were called in to perform the clean up in a safe and responsible method.

The two companies have years of experience in Environmental clean up and responses.  The spill was cleaned completely and the area was returned to a safe condition by Monday evening. 

When it comes to world class service on a local level, Clean Sweep was an obvious first call.  Their assistance was crucial in the efforts to reopen the UTC MAPP Building Parking Lot and reduce overall impact to Faculty and Students.

National Water Quality Month - Nine Steps You Can Do Now To Improve Water Quality - Power Sweeping - 1800SWEEPERAugust is National Water Quality Month in the United States.
Emphasizing how interlinked water systems are, the Audobon Society points to the dangers of runoff from agriculture, forestry, construction and people's personal yards:
"Each individual household may not produce enough pollution to force a beach closing or cause a fish kill, but the combined output of all the homes in a community can be severe. And, consider that about half of the U.S. population lives within 50 miles of a coastline where runoff flows quickly to the ocean. This is why watershed protection — attention not only to the body of water but the area that drains into it — is important."
The Environmental Protection Agency, which reports that 40 percent of the nations waterways suffer water quality problems, has a detailed watershed database, which allows users to locate which watershed they live in and learn about how polluted it is and what actions they can take to protect their regional water quality.
Clean Sweep offers the following Nine Steps You Can Do Now for individuals and families to prevent water pollution from their homes:
  1. Not using antibacterial soaps or cleaning products
  2. Not flushing unwanted medications down the toilet or drain
  3. Not putting anything but water down storm drains
  4. Fixing leaks that drop from cars
  5. Liners in driveways to collect oil and other materials
  6. Avoid using pesticides or chemical fertilizers
  7. Choosing nontoxic household products when possible
  8. Picking up after pets
  9. Paving properties with permeable pavement solutions
