Ask anyone to describe a typical construction site and they will paint the picture of dedicated personnel hard at work, and heavy machines and equipment humming away day in and day out for several weeks and even months depending on the nature and size of the project. Then there is the mess. The big mess before it all comes together upon the conclusion of the construction project.
Construction sites can get very messy. Build-ups of large amounts of dirt, dust, and debris such as concrete, plaster and other kinds of waste, is the norm at these sites. That is all expected, considering what goes on during constructions and you can rest assured that the bigger the project, the more the waste that will be generated. Enter a reliable sweeping service, such as is provided by our team at Ur Next Sweeping and Scrubbing Services, and you can yet change the narrative that has long held true about construction sites being too messy.
Why should it even matter? Here is a look at some of the reasons why warehouse site sweeping is not just another option that you should think about, but an absolute must for your construction project.
Promoting A Cleaner Environment
With the right equipment and techniques, the amount of dust that is released into the air during the sweeping exercise is greatly reduced. Dust from construction sites is a leading air pollutant and checking how much of it actually gets released into the air is a great way to protect the environment.
Another big concern with the activities in construction has to do with pollutants such as soil and silt finding their way into the stormwater system. Preventing stormwater pollution is especially challenging because stormwater doesn’t get treated and flows directly into natural water bodies. Anything that can be done, must be done, to ensure that there are no pollutants in the water.
There are local, state and federal regulations enforced by environmental protection authorities, and non-compliance will amount to serious penalties. With expert sweeping at your construction site, you can avoid issues such as water contamination and sedimentation. By so doing, you will not only be compliant with set regulations but will also be promoting a cleaner environment for the benefit of all life.
If it looks good, then it will definitely catch the attention of the right people. Too many developers and construction managers make the mistake of leaving the site clean-up for the very last stage when the project is finished. This may work just as well, but, if your construction site is always a big mess, it will create a negative impression in the minds of potential buyers. This perception may be difficult to remove or change, even after you wind the project and magnificent building stands in the place that was once a big mess.
Why take the chance? Failing to ensure that your site looks as good as it possibly can throughout the timeline of the project could end up costing you in the long run.
Cleaner Is Safer
Construction sites are not exactly the safest of places. As a matter of fact, construction sites have many inherent safety risks, and that is why occupational health and safety will always be a key area of concern in such a setting. A buildup of dirt here and there can quickly turn into a trip hazard for construction workers. If your site is covered in so much dust, it may impair the vision of those operating machines, causing serious accidents.
As your OHS officer will tell you, there is surely a lot that goes into keeping a construction site safe. Although it may not seem like much, ensuring that your site is clean definitely has its part in ensuring that you have a safer environment for your workers and those around you.
Be Mindful Of The Community
Whether or not you intend on putting up another project in the area, you would do good to show some goodwill by ensuring that your construction site is kept clean. It’s already bad enough that they have to deal with the noise from all the heavy equipment. While you may not have too much control over the noise, showing that you will do what can be done when it comes to keeping the environment safer and cleaner will earn you points with the local community.
Ignore this and you may find yourself facing incessant complaints from the residents, some of which may end up being lodged in a court of law. Filing such a case may lead the courts to order for an immediate halting of your project until such a time that the case is heard and determined, which will cause significant delays for your project. That is not to mention the fact that you may lose a lot of money if you lose on the case and have to pay for damages and the likes.
