Sydney Sweep and Scrub: Running an Environmentally-Friendly Building Site

A large construction site is subject to all kinds of dust, dirt, and other contaminants. In short, your average building site won’t be the cleanest of places! However, failing to address this issue will cause all sorts of problems for workers, your clients, and your company. This applies during the building process, as well as post-construction.

Many building companies make a concerted effort to maintain an environmentally friendly building site. This means that they are managing their waste in a sustainable manner, conserving resources where possible, and engaging a construction site cleaning company to make sure that the site is regularly maintained.

At Sydney Sweep and Scrub, we’re experts in mechanical sweeping and scrubbing for concrete surfaces. We specialise in Sydney carpark cleaning, industrial cleaning for warehouses, and of course, construction site cleaning. In this article, we’ll take a look at why quality cleaning helps to maintain an environmentally-friendly building site.

A company that cares

Traditionally, cleaning companies were not at all environmentally friendly. This was often due to the use of harsh, damaging chemicals that regularly entered the waterways and caused pollution. On top of that, there were no processes in place to prevent pollutants like oils, grease, and chemicals, from being washed into drains during a cleaning service.

At Sydney Sweep and Scrub, we are entirely committed to maintaining a positive impact on the environment, through every single construction site cleaning project. We truly care about delivering a cleaning service that values our ecosystem. Therefore, when you hire Sydney Sweep and Scrub for a construction cleaning service, you’re in good hands.

Conserving resources

One of the ways we deliver a sustainable and environmentally friendly service is by conserving resources during the cleaning process. Ensuring that we only use minimal resources means we’re able to reduce our impact on the environment.


Water is an essential resource for every post-construction cleaning project. We ensure that we use as little water as required, by utilising water-saving devices wherever possible, and cleaning equipment that conserves water while in use. For example, our Tennant ride-on sweep and scrub machines are incredibly water-efficient, while delivering an exceptional clean.


Operating cleaning equipment and machinery requires the use of electricity. Inefficient practices and older pressure washers, buffers, and other cleaning equipment, will consume large amounts of power while in use. We always ensure that we’re saving power by utilising newer equipment, turning off machinery when not in use, and planning a more efficient overall cleaning project.


Cleaning chemicals can cause havoc on the environment, even these days, with modern advancements in chemical compounds. This is exactly why we avoid the use of harsh cleaning chemicals in every cleaning project. This means that when you hire Sydney Sweep and Scrub for your construction cleaning service, you can rest assured that we won’t be using any chemicals that can compromise your sustainability policy.


Fuel is another resource that does need to be conserved. What’s more, emissions from vehicles should be prevented where possible, to protect the environment, as well as the health of those in the vicinity of the building site. All of our vehicles are extremely fuel-efficient. What’s more, they are equipped with HEPA filters, which remove harmful particles from the air.

Protecting waterways

Too many cleaning companies allow runoff to enter drains and waterways. While they may clean without using large amounts of chemicals, water, and power, they are still damaging the environment through carelessness. A quality post-construction cleaning company should be taking every precaution to prevent this occurrence. Therefore, at Sydney Sweep and Scrub, we always sandbag drains.

Sandbagging drains means that all of the pollutants that we remove from concrete surfaces, such as grease, oils, chemicals, paint, dust, and anything else, do not enter drains. Instead, we clean up the runoff in a comprehensive manner. Then, we’ll remove it entirely from the building site and ensure that the runoff is disposed of safely and responsibly.

A truly sustainable building site should be preventing runoff pollution, and protect any drains and waterways that are situated nearby. This is why hiring an expert and eco-friendly construction site cleaning company is always the way to go.

Comprehensive construction rubbish removal

At Sydney Sweep and Scrub, we regularly work with an exceptional construction waste removal company. Sydney City Rubbish is the best in the business when it comes to dealing with construction waste in Sydney.

Quality construction waste removal services are essential for every building, big or small. Waste must be dealt with properly if you are going to manage a truly environmentally-friendly building site in Sydney.
