As a homeowner and Homeowner’s Association board member, you take pride in your property and want your community to look its best. Keeping streets clean and well-maintained is one way to do just that. Besides enhancing aesthetics, regular street sweeping helps protect the environment and public health and saves time and money in the long run by keeping roads and sidewalks in good condition.

Let’s explore the benefits of hiring a professional street sweeping vendor like SWIMS for your HOA community.

Benefits of Regular Street Sweeping for HOA Communities


Increased Property Value

Clean, attractive, and safe areas are highly desirable to potential home buyers, who are often willing to pay a premium for homes in such neighborhoods. Regular street sweeping plays a crucial role in achieving this. 

Additionally, when residents take pride in their neighborhood and work together to keep it clean and attractive, it can create a strong sense of community. This can be a major selling point to potential homebuyers looking for a place to call home where they feel a sense of belonging and connection.

Safer for the Environment

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) lists sweeping as one of the best management practices for preventing water pollution. 

As “The Storm Water Experts,” we know that preventing water pollution is critical to protecting environmental and public health. Our street sweeping service helps to prevent pollutants such as sediment, metals, and nutrients from entering storm drains and being carried into waterways. 

Street sweeping also helps improve air quality because it helps to remove dust, dirt, and other particulate matter from the roadway, which can contribute to air pollution. 

Extends the Lifespan of Roads and Sidewalks

Over time, dirt, sand, and other abrasive materials can accumulate on roads and sidewalks. As vehicles drive over these materials, they can cause wear and tear on the road surface, leading to cracks, potholes, and other damage. Additionally, debris and other materials can trap moisture, leading to water damage. They can also clog drainage systems and prevent water from flowing properly, leading to standing water on the road surface, which can cause damage over time.

Regular street sweeping helps prevent debris and other materials from accumulating and causing this type of damage to road surfaces. 

Saves Time and Money in the Long Run

Regular street sweeping helps to remove abrasive materials before they can cause damage to road surfaces, thereby extending their lifespan and reducing the need for costly repairs.

Additionally, many HOA communities must adhere to federal and state guidelines requiring some form of street cleaning and stormwater management. SWIMS’s modern sweepers will get the job done quickly and effectively and ensure you won’t have to deal with citations and fines.
