Fundamentals of the Power Sweeping Business

Contract Sweeping’s Most Comprehensive How-to Guide, Period

Fundamentals CoverOver the last quarter-century World Sweeping Associations’s executive director, Ranger Kidwell-Ross, has been the world’s most prolific author of information about the power sweeping industry. In 1987, Ranger started the first-ever publication for sweeping contractors, The Supervac Quarterly. Later, he founded and was editor of American Sweeper magazine, the first magazine published for the sweeping industry. In 1995 Ranger began, ‘Earth’s Largest Power Sweeping Resource.’SM  Then, in 2012, Ranger founded WSA.

However, perhaps the most significant of all he has written on the topic of sweeping – in terms of providing long-term assistance to the contract sweeping community – is Fundamentals of the Power Sweeping Business. It is the most comprehensive ‘how to’ manual ever written for power sweeping contractors. This publication, which is over 250 (8.5″ x 11″) pages in length, covers the entire gamut of information needed to become – and stay – successful as a parking area sweeping contractor.
