State of Parking Lot Leaves a Lasting Impression

They say you can’t judge a book by its cover, but that doesn’t mean people don’t do it. In the same way, your parking lot – rightly or wrongly – says a lot about your business. Common sense will tell you that when a parking lot is poorly maintained it gives the impression that your business also is in disarray.

It is not necessary to have a parking lot that looks like something out of a landscaping magazine but it is important that it looks safe and well kept. If you own the building your business is housed in, it is in your best interest to hire a maintenance company that can keep your parking lot in tip-top shape. Here are some parking lot services that you might want to consider:

  1. Lot striping and painting. Well-marked lines for parking spaces and exits prevent congestion and decrease the chance of accidents.
  2. Parking block installation. The installation of parking blocks reduces the number of fender benders and discourages drivers from cutting across the lot.
  3. Sweeping services. Parking lot sweeping not only makes things look cleaner and well-maintained, they also remove dangerous debris that can pop tires and penetrate thin shoe soles.
  4. Crack sealing. Concrete cracks over time due to weather and general wear and tear. If these cracks aren’t sealed properly, water will seep into the cracks and cause severe – and costly – damage. People can also trip over these cracks.
  5. Crack filling. Asphalt cracks also need to be repaired regularly by removing debris from those cracks, applying a strong filler, and smoothing the surface.
  6. Porter service. Depending on your particular needs, you may want to consider a porter service which assigns staff to your parking lot. Think of it as a cleaning company for the outdoors. Hours vary according to your needs. With a porter service, you can be sure that your parking lot is scanned for cleanliness on a regular basis. Parking lots also are hand swept, trash cans are emptied, and spills are cleaned up quickly.
  7. Light bulb replacement. A well-lit parking lot is important to keep your parking lot safe and looking good. Parking lot lights and sidewalk and landscape lights should be replaced as quickly as possible.

By keeping your parking lot clean and safe, customers will have a better impression of your building and your business. You also are helping to keep your customers and their cars safe. Something visitors to your building will definitely appreciate!
