PLEASE SUPPORT WORLDSWEEPER.COM
This website relies on industry-wide support. The good news is the information we supply can be unquestionably independent. The downside is we must have the support of the sweeping community at large to keep WorldSweeper.com up-to-date and online.
Because of the relatively small size of the sweeping industry, we need financial support from all areas of sweeping: manufacturers, contractors and the other vendors and suppliers of power sweeping equipment. If you like what you see and value the site, please support it via the low cost enhanced listings in our Contractor Locator and Browse Sweeping Products sections.

hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well."
