Easily the most common mistake made by novice sweepers is thinking that moving faster is equal to effective sweeping. This couldn’t be further from the truth. The fact of the matter is that you will be more efficient and therein more effective when you sweep at the recommended sweeping speed and when necessary slower. Doing so allows the machine to work it’s magic and reduces the number of re-passes that have to be made. Becoming proficient at these practices allows a sweeper to cover more ground and finish in a timely manner.
When it comes to our sweeping practices , slow and steady means we deliver optimal results while meeting project deadline requirements in the safest manner.

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.

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.
