Is your Construction Site Clean & Compliant?
When you dig, dirt needs to stay on your job site and must not be tracked into the streets, your neighbors, or into the stormwater sewer system. Contractors have a responsibility to provide best management practices that minimize dirt and debris from leaving the site. Sweeping, pressure washing, and hydro excavation are some of the most demanding and important jobs necessary to keep construction sites clean and under compliance.
Construction vehicles track sediment from the job site onto paved roadways and streets. Consistent construction sweeping reduces liability caused by damage from loose rocks, dirt, and debris. Maintaining the cleanliness of your building job site not only keeps your crew working at maximum efficiency, but regularly scheduled sweeping also promotes good standing with your community, neighbors, and local and regional inspectors.
Pressure washing your site, especially after construction is complete is pertinent in keeping your equipment running smoothly and to present a nice and clean completed project. Construction equipment gets filthy with all the grease and grime that pile up. The filth can compromise the equipment's operability and leaks and broken parts can be discovered easily after pressure washing. Dirt, oil, and paint drips are common on construction sites, professional pressure washing can blast away this filth quickly and efficiently.
Hydroexcavating with a vactor truck is a much safer way to work around pipes than normal digging. Having a pipe break causes more work for you and may harm those around that may have depended on that pipe for water or other services. Vactor trucks are also important in cleaning the site of oil, grease, and debris.
