Permeable Paving

It is estimated that the United States has approximately 61,000 square miles of paved roads and parking lots.  With such an astounding number of paved areas, it only makes sense that there is going to be a substantial impact made on the environment by these areas.  It also makes sense that with such a great amount of our nation’s surface area devoted to paving, that we work diligently to find and implement more sustainable and less negatively impactful techniques and materials to use for paving.  One such thing that is being used more and more is permeable paving, sometimes also called permeable pavers.  Permeable paving, in short, is the use of specialized techniques or materials that allow for on-site filtration of stormwater through the surface of paved areas.  Permeable paving allows for large particulate debris, sediment and heavy metals to be trapped on the surface or in the substrata layers of the paving materials, leaving a the filtered water to flow through the soil and subsequent layers below the pavement and to replenish our groundwater supply.  The groundwater supply level is essential to our drinking water supply, as well as to impede further stream erosion and to also help replenish our surface water levels–the level of the streams, creeks, lakes, rivers, and oceans.  The benefits of permeable paving over traditional, non-permeable paving are qualitatively greater.  In urban areas the use of permeable paving has even shown an increase in tree coverage due to the fact that the substructure of permeable paving allows for tree roots to have enough room to grow to their full size.

With the benefits to the environment being so profound with the use of permeable paving, it has become more and more the go-to method for many local governments and business owners to use in new paving projects, as well as in the reconstruction and replacement of existing paved areas.  While the benefits of permeable paving are exponentially better than other paving methods for a great deal of projects, the key to maintaining the benefits is to make certain that proper care and maintenance is given to your permeable paving.  We at Watt Commercial Sweeping, Inc. have made it a priority to stay up-to-date on new and innovative paving methods and how to properly clean and maintain them.  Watt Commercial makes certain that we effectively and properly clean permeable pavement so that its functionality, as well as its aesthetic appearance and overall integrity are maintained.  Teamed with our experience and commitment to customer satisfaction and customer service, Watt Commercial uses our constantly growing knowledge to help business owners, municipalities, cites, towns and counties respect our environment with the best and most proper ways to care for your paved parking lots, decks, roads and paths. Please call us today for more information and for an on-site personalized inspection and consultation.  With Watt Commercial Sweeping, Inc. you can rest assured that your paved areas are in the most experienced hands in the commercial sweeping industry–no matter what materials you have in place.

Old Man Winter

snowmelt

The winter season brings along much more than frigid temperatures and fireside family gatherings. Once winter weather arrives, we have other problems throughout the city; ice-covered roads, bridges and parking lots. As a result, brine and ice/snow melts are put down to eliminate unsafe slippery surfaces. What happens when the ice melts and the sun returns to warming above freezing temperatures? What is left is surfaces littered with ice melt pellets. That is where WCS comes in! Despite the type of methods used to alleviate ice hazards, we have the equipment to properly remove and restore your lots and streets to a pre-winter appearance. With over 20 winters of experience, we possess the knowledge and know-how to proficiently and rapidly take care of your needs. Contact us today for a hassle free evaluation.

What’s In Your Budget?

Autumn leaves are a beautiful and picturesque sight.  However, they can pose a dangerous and often unforeseen risk.  Not often do we look at beautiful fall foliage and think of dangerous slip and fall accidents, but as a responsible business owner, it becomes essential to consider all potential risks to our patrons and employees.  Slippery fall leaves are one of those risks to you, your business, employees and patrons.  Autumn leaves, especially those left for long time periods on your property, accumulating in your parking areas, become soaked in the drenching autumn rains.  The rain causes the unmoved, unkempt leaves to become extremely wet, heavy and slippery.  Wet, slippery leaves on the ground pose as much of a dangerous hazard as ice on the ground does.  Leaves that are in your business’s parking lots and parking areas are often carried inside your business by foot traffic in and out of your business, where the fall risk is now not only outside, but inside your business as well.  Business owners and property owners are responsible for keeping patrons and employees safe and protected from injury and accidents–including those which can be caused by fallen leaves in an unkept parking lot or those that have been tracked into the entry way, or other areas of your establishment.  The CDC has found that one out of every five falls causes a serious injury, including broken bones or even head injuries.  Businesses are already susceptible to slip and fall litigation and need to insure they take extra preventative initiatives to not end up entangled in a costly litigation situation.

Watt Commercial Sweeping, Inc. is an experience, professional sweeping company that can help your business develop a sweeping maintenance plan to fit your specific needs.  When thinking about your budget and your bottom line, a regular sweeping maintenance plan is NOT an item you can afford to cut from the budget.  Proper parking area sweeping helps to not only keep your property aesthetically pleasing, which can lead to more patrons, and therefore more business and possibly more money for your business, but a regular sweeping program helps to protect your business from costly litigation costs and possible settlement payouts and increased insurance premiums as well.

Call Watt Commercial Sweeping, Inc. today in order for us to come out and give you an on site assessment and estimate.  You cannot afford to take any chances with your business.  Let us help protect you today!
