How to Keep a Construction Site Clean and Safe

Construction is messy. If you need to create a new building for your business, or you want to put an extension on the back of your house, you’ll need to deal with the ensuing mess. With a little tactical planning, however, you can make the construction cleanup process substantially easier. Before Construction Begins Advance planning makes all the difference where construction cleanup is concerned. Before your project begins, check out city ordinances and make sure you abide by any trash-related rules. Some cities have special locations for construction waste drop-off, while others dictate how long you can leave trash sitting in your front yard or parking lot before getting into trouble. If you need a dumpster, book it well in advance and ensure you choose a vessel suited to your specific needs. Concrete requires a much stronger trash receptacle than wood, so if your building debris includes stone or cement, plan accordingly. Heavy-duty garden waste bags corral lightweight trash, keeping it neat and out of the way. During Construction Safety is everything during on-site cleanup projects. If your project includes any type of demolition, make sure that your cleanup crew stays completely out of the way until the area is safe to approach. According to OSHA regulations, hard hats are essential when workers are at risk of head injury; to protect your cleanup crew, make sure each member wears an ANSI-approved hard hat when working on location. To stay on top of building debris, liaise with your construction company to figure out a specific junk removal time. To avoid getting in the way, many homeowners and business owners sweep...

Four Benefits of Pressure Washing

Pressure washing is a great way to prep your building’s exterior for a new paint job, but there are many other reasons to have exterior elements of your home or business cleaned in this manner. Pressure Washing Lets You Spruce Up Building Exteriors If you’re not quite ready for a new paint or siding job or a more complete reno isn’t in the budget right now, pressure washing can help. The high-powered spray cuts through years of dirt and grime to reveal the details of a building’s facade. Professional pressure washers know how to use this power to bring out the true color of walls, refresh windows and siding and get clumped debris from roof and gutter areas, all without damaging existing elements. A High-Powered Wash Makes for a Healthier Environment Pressure washers don’t just clear away dirt and dust. They can also remove built-up allergens, such as mold or pollen, to create a healthier area for your family, employees or customers. Regular washing also helps remove debris from areas that can impact the functionality of your building, which leads to better operation of HVAC and filtering units and a healthier indoor environment. Pressure Washing Doesn’t Rely on Chemicals While chemicals can be used during pressure washing for certain purposes, such as to treat especially bad mold or mildew issues, it’s rarely necessary for harsh chemicals to factor into the process. Professional pressure washing equipment is so powerful, the only thing required to blast away grime and stains is water. Even if your provider recommends chemicals during the process, numerous biodegradable and organic solutions are available, so you don’t...
