Power Sweeping that Leaves Others in the Dust!
Street Sweeping is a Healthy Practice for Our Environment
Recognized as a “Best Management Practice,” professional, commercial street sweeping has become a crucial element in business and community health and dust control practices. This type of widespread outdoor cleaning is viewed as being environmentally responsible and image enhancing. Many customers feel that using power sweeping services helps promote a healthier awareness of our environment.
Benefits Include the Removal of Litter, Debris, & Pollutants
The main benefits of street cleaning are removal of debris and litter and preventing pollutants from entering waterways. With our close proximity to the unique ecosystem of the Chesapeake Bay, street cleaning is particularly important. Knowing the benefits of keeping irritating pollutants to a minimum is a way to maintain healthy facilities.

Keep Hazards Under Control with Construction Sweeping
During the beginning, middle, and final phases of a construction project, crews accumulate dirt, dust, and debris on the construction site. The accumulation of loose dirt, stones, and other debris in the surrounding area can become a health and safety problem for surrounding streets and neighborhoods if left unchecked. Maintaining a secure construction site that includes regular construction sweeping keeps these hazards under control.

Power Sweeping for Paving & Milling Success
Milling old asphalt and recycling it into new roadway surfaces has taken a quantum leap in the past decade. Nowhere is this more important than in assuring that all remnants of the millings are swept away to ensure paving success. This sweeping step occurs just prior to the installation of the tack coat and the new hot mix asphalt (HMA). Give us a call today if you have any questions.
The Problem if Sweeping
If this sweeping step is omitted in an effort to save time or money, the remains quickly deposit back into the newly milled grooves. The fine debris melds in, lowers the coefficient of friction, and prevents the complete bonding between the fresh base, the tack coat, and the new hot mix asphalt. Without that proper bonding, the newly laid asphalt has no opportunity of achieving its maximum predicting longevity.
DOT Sweeping Specifications for Milled Roadways
The specification of every state department of transportation in the United States requires the mechanical sweeping of every foot of roadway that has been milled prior to being resurfaced with hot mix asphalt. Milling old asphalt provides a better base for installing a longer lasting street, road or highway surface and, in recycling it, helps conserve the nation’s vital natural resources.
