October is always a busy month for us with the ending of Summer and beginning of Fall. Here at Xpress Sweeping, we were out working all across Rhode Island and the surrounding areas, helping our customers prepare for the cold weather and vacuuming the already falling leaves.

The images above are from a fencing replacement job, something we do quite often; and also two landscaping jobs requiring our larger dump trucks.

Other jobs we worked on this month included paving jobs in North Kingstown, sidewalk demolition and replacement in Cranston and curb repair in Warwick.

We would love to assist you with whatever outdoor maintenance your business needs, and as always, we offer free estimates. Don't forget to get on our list for snow plowing, as the snow will be here before you know it. Call us at 401-825-6961 to speak with us today!

Pumpkin flavored everything is back, which is a sure sign that Fall is almost here. We've also noticed the leaves starting to fall already, and have begun preparing our extensive fleet of vacuum and sweeper trucks for a busy season.

So why is it important to clear dead leaves off your paved surfaces?

Leaves quickly clog gutters

New England Fall weather can include a lot of rain, so the last thing you want is to have clogged gutters. When clogged, gutters can't properly drain water from paved surfaces, causing flooding. Keep roadways clear of leaves and other debris so that flooding is minimal or non-existent, even during heavy rains.

Leaves become slippery when wet, posing a risk for pedestrians, bikers and motorcyclists

There are already enough hazards that pedestrians, bikers and motorcyclists have to deal with. Don't add wet, slippery leaves to the mix. Especially if you have, as an example, a shopping center up on a hill and the roadways are curvy or hilly, pay special attention to leaves building up. Your customers will thank you!

August was a very busy month for Xpress Sweeping!

In addition to the regular sweeping jobs, we helped with several DOT projects around the state, and we also completed maintenance work including a patio and sidewalk renovation (pictured). We removed all of the existing concrete and other surfaces to enable a fresh design and build.

As Fall approaches, consider calling us to schedule a free estimate for winter preparation. Sealing small cracks in your paved surfaces will prevent them becoming much bigger with the freeze and thaw cycles this winter.

• Snow removal

• Site work

• Striping and seal coating

Bobcat Services:

• Snow removal

• Smaller excavation jobs

Landscaping Services:

July was a busy month for the Xpress Sweeping crew. One of our biggest jobs was this major clean up project at the Lowe's Distribution Center just over the line in CT. Not only did we sweep and vacuum their paved surfaces with our trucks, but our crews shoveled, swept and perfected the common areas around the buildings. The space started out looking sandy and unkept and ended up looking clean and ready for anything!

We are always game for small jobs along with these large full-crew marathons. We love a good challenge! No sand or debris on your paved surfaces means that they will last longer, look better and be safer to walk and drive on.

Mike has been working for us here at Xpress Sweeping for about 8 years. He is our Night Operations Manager, which means if any of our customers need assistance at night, or if we have scheduled night jobs, he is the one in charge.

Mike also schedules routes, drives the vehicles, inspects locations and assists the owners with daily operations. We asked him a few questions about his role here at Xpress Sweeping:

What do you find challenging about your job?

Scheduling personnel, meeting clients, and keeping up with all changes to locations and times all pose challenges for me.

What do you enjoy about your job?

I really enjoy meeting new people and keeping properties looking their best.

What are your hobbies outside of your job?

I love to cook and travel!

What do you do for fun?

Spend time with my granddaughters and family, plus hang out with my friends.
