Outdoor sweeping significantly contributes to safety by addressing surface compaction and enhancing drainage performance. Regular sweeping, particularly on block paving, effectively removes moss and detritus, thereby improving drainage and reducing the likelihood of moss and algae growth and slippery surfaces. This minimises trip hazards and ensures clear pathways for pedestrians and cyclists.
Furthermore, the use of outdoor sweepers minimises reliance on water and chemical cleaners, thereby reducing environmental impact and promoting sustainability. Additionally, by preventing debris from entering stormwater systems, sweepers help minimise pollution and preserve water quality.
