Health, Safety and Environmental Protection

Regular sweeping and scrubbing performed by trained operators with well-maintained machines impacts positively on people and the environment.

Reduce Risk

metal littered on the floors of factories

Metal littered on the floors of factories, warehouses or car parks or construction sites poses a dangerous risk to your equipment, vehicles, and employees.

magnetic sweepers

Our magnetic sweepers can immediately improve standards of safety and efficiency across several industries and applications. A magnetic sweeper will catch debris before it can do harm, keeping workers and equipment safe.

high powered magnets

Our high-powered magnets are more efficient than traditional sweeping machines for sites plagued by metal objects and dust as they have proven to be much more accurate and efficient at removing toxic metals and other trace elements.

Protecting Storm water Systems and Water Ecology

Stormwater particles, derived from the wash-off of hardstand deposited sediments, contribute potentially toxic mediums into the stormwater system and subsequently waterways when it rains. Industrial hardstand and paved areas contribute a high load of sediments into stormwater systems. 

Industrial sites are facing increasing enforcement action of stormwater runoff. Regular yard sweeping is an effective source control tool that adds value to stormwater management plans, removing particulate matter before it rains and is washed down the stormwater drains and into Canterbury’s waterways.

If dust settles on your forecourt, whether through regular industrial activities or from accidental air emissions, give us a call and we will be there to help you clean it up efficiently and safely. Incoming Three Waters legislation, increasing audits of stormwater systems and a moral duty to do more to protect the environment make yard sweeping at industrial sites more essential than ever.

Protecting Water Resources

At CanSweep we have invested in a fleet of Tennant scrubbing machines that utilise the latest ec-H20 technology, allowing us to scrub floors efficiently using 70% less water and chemicals. We can even provide chemical free cleaning using advanced nano technology if required. 

All our scrubber operators are qualified in chemical handling and storage. We take protecting our waterways seriously and all our units are equipped with spill kits. The specialist filter shakers on our scrubbing machines won’t clog up stormwater drains with debris when we empty out slurry like other models can. 

Reducing Fugitive Dust Emissions

Dust pollution is a complex mixture of inorganic and organic substances. Our team utilises both sweeping machines and industrial cleaning practices to reduce your risk of poor air quality caused by dust pollution.

Numerous industrial processes and activities generate a wide range of contaminants that put businesses at risk. Stay on top of contamination risks by working with CanSweep. 

Our ability to quickly identify the right machine and sweeping schedule to control dust is critical to achieving good housekeeping outcomes. Schedule a sweep with CanSweep and you can ensure the dust risk will be properly managed.

Reducing our Carbon Footprint

We have carefully selected air brooms that are electric powered to reduce the harmful air emissions traditional petrol blowers emit (not to mention noise!). Our fleet of scrubbing machines are all battery powered. 

In addition to this, to minimise fuel consumption we have implemented fleet management technology which is helping us reduce fuel consumption and increasing the efficiency of our operations.

Vacuum sweeping debris such as stone and sand/grit prevents it being reversed over repeatedly and ground into the surface of car parks which can lead to potholes and cause line markings to deteriorate.
We will clear away any built-up leaves and other hazards, prevent slip and fall hazards on your premisses and ACC claims! 

Keeping the outdoor areas clean and vacuum swept of dust and debris results in lower cleaning costs for inside, with less dirt and rubbish being blown or trodden indoors where it can soil stock.
We will pick up bulky litter, leaves and rubbish from your car park prior to commencing the sweeping service. This helps you prevent such debris entering the stormwater system where leaves can decompose on riverbeds and cause problems.
Make sure the entrance way to your commercial or retail premises is inviting and sets the right first impression!
