Street Cleaning – The Spring Clean Up has begun!

As the mild weather approaches, work crews from C&L Services have already started their spring clean up routine with street sweeping services. The main purpose of the spring clean up is to collect any holdover leaves from the fall and winter season, as well as sweeping away accumulated dirt and debris from the winter before it ends up in the storm sewer system and eventually in our waterways.

Our crews are actively street sweeping malls, shopping centers, office parks and neighboring communities throughout NJ. Community Managers, property managers and construction managers all need to keep things neat and tidy for safety purposes, general curb appeal, and to protect the property’s value and the environment.

Please remember to keep your catch basins clear and swept. Whenever possible have your landscapers blow loose cut grass back onto the property after moving. Anything going down the storm drain goes directly into the streams and rivers and decomposing plant material in the water can be harmful.

Areas We Specialize in Broom Sweeping:

  • Municipal Streets
  • Construction projects
  • Clearing Debris and Gravel From Paving Projects
  • Shopping Centers
  • Office Parks
  • Retail Establishments
  • Malls

Our crews at C&L Services provide street sweeping and power washing services throughout New Jersey. Continual, routine maintenance is important to the overall health and look of your property. C&L Services makes property maintenance fast, safe, and affordable.

C&L Services covers a service area that includes all Counties of New Jersey.

Pothole Prevention Tips from the Pavement Maintenance Experts at C&L Services

C&L Services is leading the industry in pavement maintenance services in New Jersey. When you see the first signs of potholes forming, the crews at C&L will quickly and efficiently solve the most stubborn roadway repairs. Although some pothole repairs are temporary, here are some tips on preventing potholes from forming in the first place and what to do when you see them forming.

Waiting for winter to make roadway fixes often means the repairs are temporary. But what if you can prevent potholes from forming in the first place? As with any type of maintenance, a preventative strategy works best. Catching the problem early on and repairing the root cause means small cracks don’t become large potholes.

A pothole forms when a crack in the pavement occurs and water penetrates it. The constant expansion and contraction of the water due to fluctuations in temperature (especially in the winter) causes the pavement to burst out with motorist traffic. Sealing cracks in the summer and fall will often prevent the cracks and potholes from appearing in winter and spring.

Did you know the average driver in the Northeast spends an average of $375.00 a year to make repairs to tires, rims, chipped paint and windshield damage caused by hazardous road conditions?

Some road surfaces and parking lots have too many cracks and need repair and a top-coat known as crack fill and seal coating. Considering the time and money it costs to repair potholes and pothole damage, a much more cost-effective approach is to seal the pavement. By sealing the pavement, water can be kept out of the cracked areas and this will greatly reduce the chance of potholes forming in the first place.

If you do have potholes that are appearing and need them fixed, C&L Services offers various ways of fixing the damage:

  1. Throw and Go
  2. Throw and Roll
  3. Semi-Permanent Repair
  4. Infrared Pothole Repair

If you have a pothole problem in your parking lot, call the experts at C&L Services at 732.886.1940 or fill out a form on our Contact page.

C&L Service’s team of trained professionals will repair all potholes and are trained to alert you at the first sign of a pothole. Pothole repair can be done year-round with the throw & go method or the help of our infrared equipment. Potholes should be taken care of immediately before they turn into a bigger issue.

Indoor Parking Areas Offer Unique Challenges Met with Parking Garage Scrubbers

Interior parking decks, parking garages, and indoor garage surfaces generate a lot of dirt and grime from daily traffic and parked cars. The oil, dirt, and grit builds up over time and needs to be regularly cleaned and maintained to insure the safety and cleanliness (and aesthetics!) of the space. The professional trained staff at C&L Services and our garage scrubbers are prepared to meet the challenge of keeping your indoor parking areas free of dirt and debris!

Professional garage scrubbers can quickly and effectively remove dirt, oil, and grime from indoor parking decks and garages. Scrubbing all parking tiers, including the ramps, will help maintain the appearance of the space and lessen the chances of a slipping accident.

Sand and dirt are abrasive materials and can shorten the life of the pavement, including wearing the line striping. Professional parking deck cleaning is much more cost effective than replacing or repairing the pavement surface throughout the parking deck or garage.

The specialized equipment and operators at C&L Services will scrub away the oil and grease. C&L garage cleaning services start with an application of heavy-duty degreaser and follow with commercial grade scrubbing using our high-end automatic garage scrubbers. With side brooms and rear squeegees, our scrubbers are specially designed to loosen debris and dirt and clean (scrub) the surface. We will scrub both single and multi-tiered parking decks. No job is too big or too small!

With a careful eye on first impressions, regular interval parking deck scrubbing should be part of any maintenance program for all commercial parking decks. Contact the experts at C&L Services today for a thorough site inspection and quote for regular maintenance on your parking deck. You can reach us at (732) 886-1940, or by filling out a form on our website at https://sweeping.com.

C & L Services Celebrates 48th Year Anniversary and Honors Employees at 7th Annual Family Picnic

On September 14th, 2019, C&L Services marked its 48th year anniversary with its 7th Annual Family Picnic. This annual picnic is scheduled for early fall of every year and, culminating in months of planning and preparation, is held in appreciation of C&L employees and all the hard work they perform throughout the year.

The annual picnic features award-winning barbeque, smoked brisket, chicken, pulled pork, ribs, hot dogs, and wings. A host of sides are also served, including macaroni and cheese and coleslaw. Also present at the picnic was our favorite DJ, raffles prizes (which include a paid day off with the boss!), tournament games such as horseshoes, bean bag toss, and kickball, and a playground for smaller children.

C&L Annual Picnic – A True Family Get-Together!

One of each of the trucks in C & L Services fleet is present at the picnic, including a broom sweeper, air sweeper, C&L crew pickup truck, box truck, and dump truck. Employees are invited to give their families a tour of their vehicles and allow the children to play inside. The trucks serve as a sense of pride for the employees, and also as a beacon for arriving families of where the picnic is located in the park.

C&L Services has been a family owned and operated business for three generations and has always emphasized “togetherness” and “family” in its core values. The picnic is a way for C&L Services to thank its employees for the sometimes off hours, extra time, and going above and beyond their duty while on the job.

Highlighting this year’s picnic was an award ceremony conducted in honor of Stevie Szewczyk. Stevie was presented with a plaque honoring him for 30 years of dedicated service while employed at C&L Services. Stevie loves the work he does at C&L, and the award was a way of telling Stevie that C&L loves him back!

The C&L Training Process

Our street Sweeping operators are going through a certification process that has been developed by the experts in the street sweeping industry.  Boasting hundreds of combined years of experience in the street sweeping industry, these experts have developed best practices that have been distilled down to online training modules.  These training modules cover everything from hiring practices, good sleep habits, proper nutrition, sweeper equipment nomenclature, site assessments, what to do and not do after an accident, proper pre and post truck inspections; to name just a few.  Each sweeper operator is required to go through the over 20 educational modules covering these topics and pass a multiple choice test at the end of each module with a perfect score to be able to move onto the next module.  At the end of the modules, the operator will need to pass a cumulative test on all the modules with a perfect score.  They then will be subjected to an oral interview with a trained supervisor to ensure the concepts have been learned.  Once this is completed and it has been established that the operator has at least 1,000 hours of accident free sweeping, they will then be granted a certificate from the North American Power Sweeping Association certifying them as a Certified Sweeping Operator.

Parking Lot Line Striping: Why is it Important?

shopping center property maintenance-sweeping.com

Are your parking garage or parking lot stripes and markings faded, dull or even worn off completely? If so, it’s time for a new coat of paint for your parking lot! Give your property the facelift it needs and eliminate potential liability with C&L’s line striping and handicap marking services.

Line Striping your parking lot or parking garage has a number of benefits, including:

  • Safety – The safety of the patrons and customers visiting your place of business should be paramount; faded crosswalks, parking spaces, and other safety markings in your parking lot can cause confusion for drivers and can even lead to accidents. Once these parking lot pavement markings have been given a fresh coat of paint, cars will move more efficiently through your lot and pedestrians will be at ease.
  • Curb Appeal – Nothing looks better than a fresh coat of paint! The same applies to your parking lot. Over time the lines and markings on the asphalt will fade due to constant exposure to the elements. Many parking lots are re-striped after their regularly scheduled seal coating. Leave a lasting first impression on your customers and patrons with a well-maintained parking lot.
  • Handicap Spaces and ADA Compliance – Indicating clear and proper access for the handicapped, as well as the most direct route to your building’s entrance, is a very important aspect of line striping. Also, ADA (American Disabilities Act) compliance thru pavement markings and signage ensures you avoiding fines and penalties and allows easy access to all potential customers, tenants, employees, and guests to your property.
  • Maximize Parking Spots – Parking line stalls that are clearly marked ensure that the most amount of customers and patrons can park in your lot at any given time. This ensures your visitors will all be able to find spaces during peak business hours.

C&L Services uses the most durable and longest lasting paints available. We can insure the services are performed at the most convenient time to minimize inconvenience to your customers.

Street Sweeping for Contractors, Construction Companies, and Project Sites

The world of street sweeping can be a messy one, especially on project sites with heavy equipment moving material and kicking up dirt, dust and mud. Keeping these project sites clean is very important for the safety of the work site and also benefits the environment. Here are some important things to consider when trying to keep your project or construction site clean of debris and dirt.

Project Sites and New Developments

Debris can accumulate on any construction site; screws, nails, and other pieces of debris can quickly be scattered across the job site. To avoid injuries or damage to any heavy equipment, it is vital that the site be kept as clean as possible. Having your site routinely swept by a street sweeper is the easiest way to keep your site in good working order. When managing any kind of new development, weekend traffic to your sale or leasing office means your streets and parking lots should be maintained for the overall aesthetics of the property.

Creating a Schedule

When ground is broken and site development work begins, it is paramount to maintain a schedule for street sweeping. Some sites may need weekly or even daily sweepings to ensure dust, silt, debris, settlement, and dirt is removed. This is often based on location, regional requirements, and township regulation.

City vs. Suburbs

A new community with hundreds of homes in a suburban location will need to maintain a regular weekly street sweeping schedule. A construction project in a city area with more local foot traffic may require daily street sweepings to maintain the overall appearance and curb appeal of the neighborhood.

Construction Sweeping Checklist

  • Maintain aesthetic appearance of site
  • Keep air pollutants, like dust and silt, to a minimum
  • Prioritize safety by removing unsafe debris, like stray screws and nails
  • Keep streets clean for local traffic (cars and pedestrians)
  • Loose dirt, construction debris could be hazardous for pedestrians

Construction companies, developers, builders, and contractors should plan ahead and maintain a regular schedule of street sweeping.

C&L Services is a third generation family owned property maintenance company. We have been sweeping and servicing real estate developers, builders, and communities in New Jersey for over forty years. Our crews are ready to tackle the toughest construction and project sites with our fleet of street sweepers.
