Every now and then, you would have to hire a Lakeland parking lot paving company to check if your parking lots have potholes or cracks on them. This would prevent accidents from happening, as well as make sure your business’ clients are satisfied.
But do you know there are some things you can do to lessen the costs of constant repairs and maintenance checks? By simply cleaning your parking lots and making sure the drainages are not clogged, you’ll have a better chance of lessening your maintenance costs.
Sweep and clean
One of the everyday things we should be doing for our parking lots is to sweep it clean. That means removing all the fallen leaves, garbage, plastics, etc. that may interrupt cars and drivers. If you have a garbage can near your parking lot, make sure to empty this at least twice a day or as soon as it begins to fill up. Ensuring that the surface of your parking lots are clean will help you see potholes and cracks.
You do know that oil can collect on your parking lot because of all the cars parking and staying there every single day, right? You have to schedule a proper oil removal from your parking lots. Oil spill, even as little as the spills coming from parked cars, can cost your lots to deteriorate. It can also cost accidents because someone might step over it and slip on it. Remember that when accidents happen in your property, you can be held legally liable for it. Aside from removing oil spills, you must also clean up grease marks and other similar types of stubborn dirt buildup.
If sweeping did not work, you have to try cleaning your parking lot with pressure washers. If you ever watched a car wash, then you’ll have a good idea how this works. Pressure washing will make sure to remove all dirt, grime and grease from your parking lots. These are the things that ordinary sweeping and cleaning cannot remove. If you don’t have the equipment for pressure washing, you can call a local cleaning company and have them remove those stubborn dirt.
Your parking lot might just happen to sit above your drainage. If this is the case, do make sure to remove all the possible elements that can clog your drainage. A clogged drainage means water (from rain, from cleaning) will simply collect on your parking lot, which can cause molds.
