Like when you practice anything on guitar, play slowly to a metronome and gradually increase speed. Make sure it's perfectly clean at a slow tempo or it'll be a mess when you try to do it fast. Be careful not to let the notes ring into each other, especially when using a barre. Start with 3 string sweeps as they are easiest, the you can move on to 4,5 and 6 strings.

Quick tips:
~ DON'T do sweep picking with palm muting
~ the finger must be lifted up the moment the next notes is played.
~ utilize both left and right hand to mute the string that is not played. Use your picking hand thumb to mute the string that is not played - Thumb Muting Technique
~ when you do sweep picking, try stopping at a random pitch and see if any unplayed string ringing
~ Learn to play arpeggio in its different voicing

Any reason not to? I mean you probably wouldn't want to do it all the time but why not some of the time?

Look up the Protest the Hero song Limb from Limb. There is a nice long sweeping arpeggio section(5 string sweeps). Honestly after learning this song sweeping is absolutely no problem for me. It's all about the cordination between both hands.
