Street sweeping does more than just keep the streets of Las Vegas clean — it also stops storm drains from becoming blocked and prevents flooding when it does happen to rain. Our street sweepers in Las Vegas also prevent the pollution of waterways. Follow these four tips to use our street sweepers most efficiently:
Maintain Your Equipment
Maintaining your street sweeper is the best way to make sure it continues to run optimally for years. Our Service Department works hard to make sure your equipment runs at peak performance. We supply top quality workmanship in a timely and professional manner, and our factory-trained pros can do everything from solve difficult part requirements to troubleshoot mechanical problems or set you up on a regular maintenance schedule. We get the job done, and our commitment to Total Support continues for the life of your equipment.
Watch Your Speed
One of the keys to effective, efficient street sweeping is to watch your speed. Going too fast or too slow can make it more difficult to pick up debris, and the wrong speeds can also cause excessive wear and tear on your unit. The optimum forward speed is about 5 miles per hour, which is a good balance between effective pickup and sweeping a reasonable area per day.
Parked cars can have a serious effect on your team’s ability to pick up particulate material. Having access to the curb for the entire distance of your sweep project is important. To make your program most efficient, sweep industrial and commercial areas at night and stick to residential areas during the day when there are less likely to be parked cars in the way.
