Power Sweeping Standard Version 2.0 Now Available

This process is crucial for improving the environment, as it helps to eliminate pollutants from these areas.

We're excited to share that the North American Power Sweeping Association (NAPSA) has released an updated version of their Power Sweeping Standard - Version 2.0! This is an improvement on the first-ever power-sweeping standard published in 2018, and it has been reviewed under the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) guidelines, which require a review every five years. This updated standard provides more baseline details on the sweeping processes that power sweeping companies should follow.

Power sweeping is an essential process that involves using specialized equipment to remove dirt, debris, and other contaminants from parking lots, roadways, and other areas. This process is crucial for improving the environment, as it helps to eliminate pollutants from these areas. Additionally, power sweeping helps to extend the lifespan of asphalt surfaces by several years. By removing dirt and debris, the pavement is protected from abrasive particles that cause wear and tear, which can result in cracks and potholes.

Power sweeping and property management companies often face safety issues, such as slip and fall accidents which result in litigation. That's why NAPSA has developed a practical tool that can be used to clarify expectations and create baselines of understanding for processes.  The standard upholds objective minimum criteria for the determination of competence, responsibility, and obligation in power sweeping. The standard’s approval will help contractors in defending against litigation and should result in reduced insurance rates. These benefits arise because contractors can now show that they have met an approved national standard for service and operation instead of relying upon arbitrary interpretations. The standard also has the effect of boosting the professionalism of the industry, which should also net a positive impact on a power sweeping company’s bottom line.
