Why Street Sweeping is Important
Street sweeping is a necessity for many cities and towns that have curbed streets. Over time, these streets collect leaves, dirt, metal, glass, and rocks. This debris is unsightly, unsanitary, creates traffic hazards. It can keep water from properly draining off the roadway and block storm drains. Gravel on the road will get thrown by tires, causing more broken windshields. Pieces of metal will cause tire leaks and blowouts, stranding motorists and potentially causing wrecks. Trash will create unsanitary and unsightly conditions. Sand dirt and gravel will also cause premature wearing on a road surface as these hard particles are constantly being ground between vehicle tires and the roadway surface. Maintaining clean streets will prevent these hazards and will save money in the long run by increasing the longevity of pavement surface and drainage systems.
The Importance of a Good Curb Broom
Having a truck with a good and effective curb broom (also called gutter broom) is a very important part of street sweeping since most of dirt, leaves and debris on a street will accumulate along the curb. The curb broom removes the dirt from the curb and puts it in a position where the sweeper truck can collect it. The video below is a demonstration of how much dirt is removed with the curb broom.
