3 Principles of Parking Lot Services

Sweeping. Pressure Washing. Striping. These items need to be completed regularly to keep your parking lot from being an eyesore to employees, tenants and guests. Even in southern California, our high heat days cause oxidation that breaks down asphalt parking lots. Without proper attention, safety hazards can be created.

Today’s blog post will examine sweeping, pressure washing and striping in more detail, how often you should enlist a company to do them and why they are important.

Remember, a clean well-maintained parking lot sends a positive message to your customers and tenants. It shows you care as much about your property as you do their business.

Sweeping: Complete Monthly

Keeping your lot free from dirt, debris, sand, twigs and leaves is important. These materials can create slippery and
hazardous walking conditions if not attended to on a regular basis. Sweeping also extends the life of your pavement and striping.

Pressure Washing: Do Quarterly

Washing your parking lot and walkways leaves these areas sparkling clean and presents an inviting exterior environment for clients and prospects.

Striping: Plan Yearly

A freshly painted lot not only looks professional, it creates a safe driving environment for employees, tenants and visitors. It protects employee and guest vehicles from door dings, overcrowding and accidents because spaces are clearly marked.

In addition, parking lot striping helps avoids owner liability and complaints because handicap spaces, fire lanes and no parking zones are visibly identified.

In conclusion, your parking lot is often the first thing people see when they exit their vehicles. By setting up a maintenance schedule and sticking to it, you will leave a lasting impression on everyone who enters your establishment.
