This hooky website says, I’m going to tell you about a Top Secret Method that the credit “SWEEP!”… companies use to get all of the negative items removed from your credit report at lightning fast speeds. ...

There are no Top Secret Methods to clean your credit.

The term credit sweep is misused by this website. I suspect this is intentional to create confusion. According to Investopia, Definition of 'Credit Sweep' Also known as an automated credit sweep, this term refers to an arrangement between a bank and a customer (usually a corporation) whereby all idle or excess funds in a deposit account are used to pay down short-term borrowing under a line of credit. This term is infrequently used enough so you're unlikely to know its correct usage, but many have probably heard the term in passing and will think this sight is onto something.

This lame, unprofessional website reeks of scam. I wouldn't touch it with a 10 foot pole.
