Service for Parking Lot Sweeper Trucks
If you own a business and have a parking lot, keeping your parking area clean may be essential for the success of your company. Having a clean parking lot creates a great first impression for potential customers and can turn would-be clients into people who want to walk into your store or offices. Most customers simply react poorly to debris, litter and other signs of an unkempt parking lot.
There are other reasons to keep your parking lot in great condition, too. A parking lot with debris can pose a risk to cars and to customers walking to and from their cars. In fact, 14% of car damage claims come from parking lot accidents. Keeping your parking lot clean and clear of litter helps keep your property safe for visitors, employees, and you. It can help you prevent expensive and time-consuming lawsuits and can show that you and your business are serious about treating people right.
Keeping Your Parking Lot Clean
To keep your parking area clean, you have the option of hiring a parking lot sweeper service. However, with a parking lot sweeper service, you don’t exert total control over how often or how well your parking lot is cleaned. There may be delays from the time you notice debris to the time that the service shows up. It’s why many businesses choose to invest in parking lot sweepers of their own.
Parking lot sweepers allow you to clean your property on your own terms. With your own equipment, your employees can ensure that the parking lot is in great condition all the time — with no delay. As soon as you notice litter, you can make sure it gets cleaned up. Parking lot sweepers can also be a smart investment in your business. In some states, they may be a deductible business expense you can write off. Compared to hiring a service year after year, investing in your own parking lot sweeper may make more sense for your budget.
Maintaining Your Parking Lot Sweeper
Once you decide to invest in a parking lot sweeper, your investment doesn’t end there. Just like your delivery trucks or personal car, parking lot sweepers require maintenance. You probably take your car in to get the fluids topped up, to get the tires fixed and to get oil changes. Parking lot sweepers aren’t that different — they also work their best with a little care.
Investing in the upkeep of your parking lot sweepers and equipment has many benefits:
- A regular schedule of maintenance and parking lot sweeper repair helps keep your cleaning equipment reliable.
Your parking lot sweepers aren’t likely to help you maintain the best impression possible for your business if they break down. A broken-down sweeper can be expensive to fix, and it can take some time to repair, especially if you don’t have a repair professional on-hand. Your business doesn’t just need parking lot sweepers — your business needs reliable sweepers. One way to keep your equipment dependable is to ensure that your fleet is properly maintained and serviced, so your machine’s always ready to go when your parking lot needs to be touched up.
- Knowing where to turn for parking lot sweeper truck repair is important to get things running again if there is a problem.
A quality parking lot sweeper repair and maintenance service includes repairs when you need it. Bortek Industries, for example, can design a comprehensive program to ensure your sweepers are properly maintained and working correctly — and that you can contact a certified technician if there is a breakdown requiring a repair job. Your business doesn’t have time for downtime — knowing who to call when things go wrong can help save you significant amounts of time, money and hassle. A repair and maintenance service can arrive quickly and can get your sweeper back into service.
- Regular maintenance protects your investment.
If you’ve decided to make the investment in your own parking lot sweeper, regular maintenance protects the money you’ve spent and increases the chances you will get a good return on your investment. Just like you wouldn’t buy a new car and refuse to change the oil or get any maintenance, you don’t want to drive your parking lot sweeper into the ground. Your sweepers may experience fewer breakdowns and will be more serviceable with proper upkeep. If your sweepers do break down often because they are not being serviced regularly, you may have to pay for repairs and an alternative cleaning service until your fleet is functional again. Getting regular maintenance just makes more sense.
- Proper service extends the life of your sweeper.
If you’re buying a used car, would you prefer to buy from the person who refused to change their tires, top up their fluids or get proper tune-ups? Probably not, because you know that an incorrectly maintained car has a shorter lifespan than one that has been properly cared for. It is the same with your parking lot sweeper. Whether you buy a new or used sweeper, you can get more cleaning from your investment by properly maintaining it and getting it serviced using the right schedule. With proper maintenance, your sweeper will last longer and perform better.
- Parking lot sweepers will perform at peak productivity levels more easily with regular maintenance and attention.
When your machines are performing correctly, your parking lot is cleaner. Your employees are also able to do more with a properly functioning machine — they can usually clean more in less time, meaning your overall cleaning costs are lower and you get a better return on your investment. With a correctly maintained sweeper fleet, your employees may also enjoy a better outlook and job satisfaction, because working with the right equipment makes their job easier. The right schedule for service can ensure your fleet works correctly and gets more done in less time.

Applications for Parking Lot Sweeper Services and Repairs
There are lots of situations where parking lot sweeper maintenance and service makes sense:
- You own a series of parking lots and have a dedicated fleet for maintaining them. If you own a series of parking lots or garages, providing the safest and cleanest parking lot areas is your business. A proper maintenance and repair schedule can ensure your parking lot always looks its best and you have the best chance of enjoying good profitability. Few people want to pay to park their cars in a dirty parking lot, and poorly maintained sweepers can mean it takes you longer and costs you more to clean the same area.
- You have faced a legal battle, and you want to to show you are serious about pedestrian and car safety in your parking lots. If you have faced a lawsuit in the past due to debris or litter that has led to an accident, hiring a sweeper maintenance service for your fleet ensures your parking lot is safer and shows you have made a new commitment to safety.
- You are in an industry where cleanliness or a professional image is essential. If you are in the cleaning business, are an attorney or are a professional in any field, a clean parking lot is part of your image. Properly maintained sweepers and scrubbers ensure you project the image you need to put forward in order to succeed.
- Your business is located in an area where debris and litter are an issue. Some areas simply attract more litter and debris than others. For example, if you’re in a large urban center, you may find that debris and litter find their way to your parking lot with some regularity. If you live in a four-season climate, autumn leaves and other seasonal debris can end up in your parking area. Properly maintained sweepers can help you take care of these problems more efficiently.
- You have just made a significant investment in a used or new sweeper for your company. If you have purchased a new sweeper, proper maintenance and service can help you make the most out of your investment, help the sweeper last longer and ensure that the warranty on it stays valid. If you decide to resell your sweeper at some point, a proper maintenance schedule can help you get the best resale price for it. If you have purchased a used sweeper, proper maintenance can keep it working at its best, even if it is an older model, and can ensure you get the maximum life out of the vehicle.
- Your business owns a street sweeper, scrubber, street scrubber, parking lot sweeper or sweeper. Parking lot sweeper services aren’t just for sweepers. If your fleet includes a street sweeper, a street scrubber, a scrubber or any other type of cleaning equipment, proper maintenance and service is essential.
- You have a high-traffic parking lot area. A high-traffic area in your parking lot means that there is a higher possibility of debris and litter as well as more risk to pedestrians and cars, simply because there are more of them. Keeping your fleet properly maintained means your cleaning crew can clean more efficiently and quickly, getting out of the way of incoming pedestrians and cars while keeping the parking area as clean and safe as possible.
