An outdoor sweeper might not be entirely necessary for every company, but if you have large areas of car park or pathways to be kept clear, an appropriately sized yard sweeper can be a blessing when it comes to getting rid of debris and general dirt.
There is a limit to how much a couple of workpeople, a litter picker and a black bag can achieve – having a yard sweeper specifically designed for the task can ensure that outside areas are always clean and neat.
The Difference Between An Indoor And An Outdoor Sweeper
An indoor sweeper is usually battery powered and although there is no safety restriction on use outside, it would only be used outside if the surface is very sound and in dry weather conditions. One typical area which would be suitable for an indoor sweeper but which is strictly speaking ‘outside’ would be a loading bay.
The larger outdoor sweepers which SRS provide have heavy-duty tyres and a larger ground clearance which is much better suited for open, rougher areas such as car parks with kerbs, or private roads within large facilities.
How Do Outdoor Sweepers Work, And Who Would Need One?
Anyone familiar with using an indoor sweeper will find that an outdoor sweeper works in much the same way but on a larger scale. The build is more robust and there is a larger container for collecting dust and debris. An outdoor sweeper will also normally pick up larger bits of debris, as well as hold more.
All of our yard sweepers have a hydraulic hopper emptying system, which means it can be emptied into a skip or larger bin if required. This is a great health and safety feature, as it reduces the operative’s contact with the debris, and also is a good back-saving facility.
SRS have a variety of industrial cleaning machine hire options so no one needs to struggle with a messy outdoor areas anymore, if the yard needs short term deep cleaning, a casual hire is a perfect solution. For keeping yard areas neat and clean on a permanent basis, call us to see which hire option is best suited to your needs.
