Porous Pavement Sweeping

Permeable and Porous Pavement Cleaning & Sweeping Services

Clean Pervious Pavement to Maintain Porosity

Pervious pavement, also called porous pavement, gap-graded pavement, permeable pavement, or enhanced porosity pavement, is increasingly being used as part of a stormwater management design to reduce stormwater runoff and replenish aquifers. Developing a Best Management Practice (BMP) checklist for the care and maintenance of your pervious pavement areas is an important part of their long term effectiveness in handling the stormwater that percolates through these water permeable pavement surfaces.

The collection of dirt and fine aggregates can block water entry and through permeable paving. It is important to work with power sweeping professionals who are trained to appreciate the effect that naturally occurring conditions like slope, surrounding tree foliage and adjacent impervious (hard) pavement areas will have on proper water flow. An example of this can be seen during a period of moderate to heavy rainfall: if the rainwater cannot filtrate through the pavement as fast as it falls, water will flow down a graded slope. Heavy rainfall that consistently flows water to a “low point” in otherwise permeable pavement can bring with it sediment that clogs the otherwise porous surface.
