The Power Sweeping Industry Standard

The sweeping industry is highly competitive.

The power sweeping industry is tough. Contractors are facing stiff competition, frivolous lawsuits and rising insurance costs. The good news is that there is a solution which will help with these pain points and position your company as the leader in your market.

With centuries of combined experience, the member companies of the North American Power Sweeping Association (NAPSA) know that there’s only one sustainable way to compete: by doing business the right way. By becoming a NAPSA Certified Sweeping Company, you can show your customers and prospects that your company’s dedication to quality goes far beyond lip-service.

A Commitment to Excellence

The definition of quality is conformance to requirements. NAPSA established the industry standards for properly and professional operation of a power sweeping business. Approved by the American National Standards Institute, the NAPSA/ANSI Power Sweeping Standard (PSS1000-2018) defines the procedures professional power sweeping companies endeavor to implement to provide quality services to their customers. By implementing and adhering to the Power Sweeping Standard, companies can reduce their legal exposure while increasing employee satisfaction and retention.
