Charlotte and the surrounding suburbs are quickly growing, which means more construction. Construction brings new homes and new businesses, which is excellent for the economy. But the building process can be a messy one. Areas surrounding a construction site may be adversely affected by the large vehicles and equipment, plumes of dust, and dirt on the roads.
Fortunately, we have the prefect solution for keeping your vehicles clean and minimizing the spread of dust. We’ll get to that shortly, but let’s first address some general best practices for maintaining a pristine construction site. Being a good member of your community starts by being a good steward of your resources. Read on for some tips on how you can further a cleaner community!
The first step in fostering a cleaner construction site is making sure that you have a place to put trash. Create a single, unified junk pile for any extra materials or items that need to be discarded. Separating and clearing debris from the active construction areas will also make it much easier and safer to navigate with large vehicles.
The construction industry utilizes a number of potentially hazardous materials, including solvents, asphalt, pesticides, and petroleum products. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires that such materials be stored according to strict regulations. These include keeping materials properly labeled and safely away from areas of heavy traffic.
Vacuum cleaners can be just as useful on a construction site as they are in our homes and workplaces. Also known as wet/dry vacuums, a construction vacuum is capable of cleaning both solids and liquids. Use it to get rid of excess dirt and sawdust, or vacuum the standing water on your site.
Dust can be a menace to the areas surrounding a worksite. People and vehicles tend to kick up large clouds that blanket the area in grit. Suppress these dust clouds by dampening the dirt. Our Neptune Forced Air Canon with a built-in irrigation nozzle is perfect for the job!
Perhaps the most important thing you can do for your community is clean your equipment. When leaving a worksite, vehicles often track dirt, mud, and other contaminants that end up outside the boundaries of the site.
But manual washing is inefficient and prone to error. Instead, invest in the industry’s best automated wheel wash systems. Neptune Wash Solutions offers systems designed and constructed to withstand the most demanding conditions. No more filthy treads spreading dirt and polluting the roads. Interested?
