We all know that when there is dust in the air, we are all at risk of becoming victim to itchy, watery, red eyes, sneezing and other allergy related problems. Did you know that proper business practices can help control the dust and help to improve the quality of the air for all of us? The best way for businesses to control the amount of dust that is on their property is to properly maintain their parking lots and other parking areas. Just think about it–cars stir up all kinds of dust and debris. They pick up garbage off of the streets and redeposit those wastes and dust particles from their tires and undercarriages at every place they visit. The parking lots of a business are like giant dust dumps where vehicles come and rest and all of the dust and dirt and other debris they’ve picked up along their journeys settle in the parking lot. So, what is a business to do to make sure that their parking areas aren’t giant allergy triggering dust bowls? Businesses need the professional services of a properly trained and experienced parking lost sweeping company like Watt Commercial Sweeping, Inc.

So what? It’s just dust, right? What’s the big deal? Well, since you asked I’ll tell you exactly what the big deal with dust is! Did you know that the EPA, you know the Environmental Protection Agency, actually reports that dust is the MAIN cause of ALL air pollution. All air pollution is mainly caused by dust–that’s a big deal! Dust, as reported by the EPA is carried by the wind and in their report, the EPA also specifically mentions the fact that major amounts of dust come from the activity in parking lots. That’s right, the EPA specifically targets parking lot activity as a major hub and cause for dust! Again, it’s just dust, right? I mean we all hate dusting at home and put it off until the last minute because really it doesn’t seem like a major chore. It’s not like if we don’t take the garbage out of our house. That would be obvious–eeeew, the smell! But dust, I mean if you can’t really see it, it can be put off for another day, right? WRONG! The amounts of dust that parking lots cause have a bigger impact than you may realize. It’s not just like a collection of dust bunnies on a book shelf. Parking lot dust causes same major problems. I’m talking major health problems! Aside from the drippy noses, watery, dry, itchy, red eyes, dust causes serious issues with our respiratory systems. I’m talking coughing, chest tightness, difficulty breathing, irritation in our respiratory tracts that can lead to serious issues like bronchitis. Dust can even severely irritate our throats and worst of all, if you happen to be one of the millions of people who suffer from asthma or emphysema, just know that dust puts you at a substantially higher risk of increased instability and severity in your conditions.
Dust is a small thing, but it has some BIG effects for all of us. It is important that businesses make sure to take the time to hire a professional parking lot team to ensure their lots are less of a threat on the environment and on the health of everyone. Hiring any sweeping service isn’t the right way to do things either. Ineffective and improper parking lot services actually don’t help with the dust problem and can cause the dust to be stirred up and distributed throughout the parking lot and throughout the air even more than it was before. It is imperative that when hiring a parking lot sweeping service, you take the time to hire a reputable and responsible company that has the know-how and proper equipment to get the job done right. Don’t pay someone for service that is only going to contribute more to the overall problem of our air quality. Hire someone who knows how to do the job the right way with the right equipment and the experience needed to help protect the environment and the health of the public–plus it helps that they can make your business look its absolute best and be its absolute cleanest at the same time. Your choices as a business matter for all of our health and your choice in who you trust to clean your lots matters. Watt Commercial Sweeping, Inc. cares and we have the experience to meet your needs, keep the environment healthier and show your customers just how much you really do care about their experience with your business, even beginning in the parking lot.
