Hot/Steam Power Wash

An existing customers was in need some detail washing before installing charging stations for electric vehicles on a concrete pad.

This job was a simple pressure/power wash but to ensure detailed cleaning and the removal of everything on the concrete’s surface, we used an industrial hot power washer. At 250 degrees everything on the top layer of concrete gave way to the pressure and steam.

Big mess, no time? No Problem!

This existing customer was in a similar situation with a loading dock areas in need of cleaning under time constraints. The catch here was that there was a sizable mess and no where on site to dispose of it. Instead of taking it on themselves, they called us for immediate service.

The job required a sweeping unit, a dump truck and the experience our guys possess to get it cleaned right.

Construction Sweeping [Photos]

We’ve been working with a major construction and development company that is building the new headquarters for one of the world’s top automobile makers. The new campus is at the old GM plant south of Atlanta, adjacent to  Hartsfield-Jackson International. This campus will be home to many of the corporate executives and will also have a test track and off-road type obstacle course. Our task at this site is to maintain the parking garage but as they prepare to finish the test track area they requested our services with this project.

For this work we brought out the mechanical, or brush, truck. As seen on the before pictures, the asphalt had an abnormal amount of dirt as a result of the hill eroding over it after rain showers. The area was roughly a football field and a half long and maybe half wide, with areas of up to 3″ of piled dirt.

After methodically sweeping the parking lot and removing the wash down and build up, we brought over an air truck to fine tune and polish off the area. As seen below in the after picture, the only thing left on the asphalt are the infamous stains of the Georgia red clay. At this point the project manager would have the asphalt washed down, a service we also offer, but because this work was in preparation for the final lift (layer) of asphalt there was no need.

The completed work is a large area freed of a high volume of dirt and left ready for the asphalt crews to come in and make the test track ready for testing some very luxurious and fast cars! For construction sweeping or any other similar clean up services, call us!

Advantages Of Regenerative Air Sweeping

The regenerative air systems for sweeping is easily the most thorough method of sweeping. Tymco’s and Schwarzes are the industry’s equivalent to Coke and Pepsi. The better sweeper is a matter of opinion and typically is dictated by the user’s history with either brand. Both are arguably the best in the sweeping world for parking lot sweeping and because of this it is hard to choose which one to use…so we run both. At WCS we use Tymco 210’s and Schwarze 348’s

Mechanical sweepers offer a great result for a superficial cleaning or on street or construction sweeping. This is not because they are inferior models but because they depend solely on brooms to remove accumulation and debris. Strictly vacuum dependent sweepers typically only run on a single power unit and must maintain a level of suction to be able to aspirate the surface matter. The ability to clean properly diminishes if the user does not maintain the sweeper and its seals and closures deteriorate. These sweepers are ideal for sweeping strictly litter. The diagrams below highlight how each type of unit leaves the surface area after each pass.

We strive to leave each and every property detailed and to a level of cleanliness beyond what we found upon our arrival. To accomplish this we use and maintain only the best equipment, in our opinion of course. Together with the on-the-ground detailing with our backpack blowers, all properties are given the attention each deserves.

Dirty curbs don’t stand a chance! [VIDEO]

Despite the level of accumulation of dirt and debris within any curb, we can get it cleaned out and looking sharp in no time! With a little determination and attention to detail we helped clean this property, bringing it to a desirable level of maintenance. This property had roughly 50% of the boundaries, curbs and shoulders, like this. Check out our short video on a stretch of curb-line.

For this job we used a blower to detail and two trucks; an air truck and a broom truck. The video showcases the broom truck.

Parking lot cleaning VS parking lot sweeping

What’s the difference between Watt Commercial Sweeping and any other sweeping outfit? Nothing, right? Trucks are the same, work the same way, anybody can run one…. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Although we do have units that others may also operate and the act of sweeping, itself, doesn’t vary much, what we have that others don’t is what sets us apart from the rest. To point out these qualities is not to speak poorly of others but more so to emphasize how we strive to be better for our existing and future customers.

We aim to have 100% consistency.  Not including justifiable failures, we deliver services as scheduled, whether it is routine service or on call service.  There is no need to wonder if the service promised is done. Not only will it be clearly noticeable by the way the property maintains it’s cleanliness but if there were any doubt, we can provide route verification via hard copies and third-party GPS tracking.  Each unit has a vehicle monitoring system that allows is to verify location, speed, productivity and execution.
Attention to detail is the biggest differentiating factor.  We are not satisfied with a lot that ‘looks clean’. We never arrive at any of our customer’s properties and leave without servicing, having deemed it ‘clean’. With our regularly maintained and replaced backpack blowers we move through each and every parking lot and extract dirt and accumulation from all curb lines, building perimeters, nooks, crevices and areas our sweepers are unable to drive into. Our regenerative air systems blast airflow down on the surface breaking loose build-up and in the same motion redirecting it up the chute and into the hopper. We thoroughly sweep the entire property leaving it cleaner than first appeared.
Eliminating the ‘Figure 8’. Undoubtedly, everyone has seen the late night sweeping unit doing figure 8 maneuvers and practically doing donuts  to chase down litter.  Although it is clear to spectators, the operator, while focused on the litter, fails to see how reckless he/she is being. We have eliminated this by training our drivers to use the truck and the direction in which it moves air supply. Keeping litter to the side of which the air is moving we maintain straight lines with fewer turns, constantly closing in on the litter.  Much like you’d move your lawn, slowly moving towards the center.  Together with the detailing blowers, this practice allows us to cover every square inch of the property while maintaining a safe distance from all stationary objects and vehicles parked within the lot.
Our employees are top-notch! Each and every employee is dedicated and committed to performing their duties proficiently and proudly. They too understand that every customer is as important despite the size of the property.  Without our employees we would not be able to offer the quality service we provide.

During every route our goal is to arrive at each property and clean it. We never arrive to simply sweep; moving rapidly through each lot, working anxiously to chase down only the visible litter so as to quickly finish and move on to the next lot. No, we come in to each property to service it-clean it; whether the service agreement calls for it or not, we detail with our blowers, remove visible litter from landscapes, clean off property and business entrances and exits. Our attention to detail is second to none.  When leaving your property there will always be, a guaranteed, cleaner parking lot. The implemented guidelines for servicing collectively provide the difference between our cleaning service and the other company’s  sweeping service.
