From hygiene, to health, to safety. Maintaining your work yard at a high level of cleanliness is an important task. However, nobody wants to spend more time on this job than they have to. So what’s the most effective and efficient way to do so? To ensure you find your perfect solution, we have compiled the three different ways to maintain a clean yard!

Solution 1: Use a powered blower

What it is

Similar to simply sweeping with a broom, this involves an employee cleaning the yard with a powered blower. Although faster than a broom, it would still take a considerable amount of time.

Why it works

A blower is cheaper and slightly faster than sweeping manually. However we anticipate that you may just end up blowing dust everywhere, and that the blower won’t be powerful enough to clean up gravel and other heavier waste.

Solution 2: Using a contractor

What it is

This involves the business organising and paying for an outside contractor to sweep the yard. This is a good option for saving employee time, and eliminating the need for the maintenance of machinery.

Why it works

Due to most contractors using sweeping machinery, the actual sweeping of the yard would be to a high standard. However they are costly to hire and tend to be restricted by their own schedule. Therefore contractors are not always available whenever you want or need them, causing dust or gravel build up.

Solution 3: Get a collection sweeper Best Choice Sweeper

What it is

A collection sweeper is an attachment that fits onto any machine with a pallet fork attachment point. It works via hydraulics powered by a large rubber wheel on the underside of the machine. The collection sweeper will sweep against the direction of travel whilst collecting the material, so it can be dumped back where it belongs.

Why it works

Due to it’s quick and easy set up, and ability to sweep and collect material, it is an extremely effective way to clean your yard. Not only that, a collection sweeper attachment can also spray water to assist in cleaning the surface and reduce dust levels! We recommend this solution due to the high level of efficiency, and the fact that the sweeper can be used any time when there is a build-up of materials.
