Street Sweeping Services

CleanAll Solutions provides the services of Street and Road cleaning using mechanical road sweeping, sweeping combined with the application of vacuum pressure and mechanical street washing.

Streets and roads are subject to pollution by several sources e.g: municipal, industrial agricultural waste etc. Streets are contaminated by waste including plastic bags, pet bottles, packaging, and food waste, tree and plant trimmings, straw, dust particles etc. Since streets and roads have a continuous flow of traffic, the environment gets polluted as dust particles spread due to traffic flow, such waste may also cause accidents. Therefore, regular cleaning of streets is necessary to avoid these conditions and to maintain the aesthetics of the environment. Street sweeping is done either by manual or mechanical ways. In manual sweeping, a street-sweeping person would use a broom and shovel to clean off litter, animal waste, and filth that accumulated on streets. The older manual ways result in the following problems:

  • Dust spreading causing air pollution
  • Only effective in removing large particles of road debris, small particles of debris remained behind in large quantities
  • Time-consuming
  • Workers directly in contact with pollutants

On the other hand, mechanical means of street and road cleaning have overcome all the above-mentioned cons of manual cleaning. Modern street sweepers are mounted on truck bodies and can vacuum debris that accumulates in streets.

A street normally comprises three distinct paved surfaces: a highway for motor traffic, and footway on both sides for pedestrians. The footways are slightly elevated and are separated from the highway by a curb and channel. The channel is the lowest part of the road structure and serves as a drainage channel during rainfall; at regular intervals, it is provided with outlets for the surface water to the main drainage system.

It is rarely necessary to sweep the surface of the highway because motor traffic creates turbulence, which carries dust and litter away from the crown of the road and concentrates it in the channels at the sides. Thus, street sweeping usually has two components: footways and channels. Footway wastes are mainly light litter and a little dust; in the channels, the proportion of dust and heavy wastes is usually greater. Therefore, tasks tend to be different. Footways are large areas with a low concentration of wastes; channels are narrow strips with a high concentration of wastes, which tend to be heavy. Although these principles apply to most streets of a city, the amount of wastes generated varies in proportion to the level of human activity; thus, the necessary frequency of sweeping can range from several times a day to once or twice a week.
