How to Immediately Maintain a Brand New Industrial Lot

May, 26, 2021 By CASSIDY PAVING 6 min read
When you get a brand new industrial lot, you may think that you have some time to figure out your asphalt maintenance plan. After all, the asphalt paving is fresh, looks great, and drives smoothly. While that would seem to make the most sense at face value, experts will disagree. In reality, making your maintenance schedule for this new lot should begin immediately. In other words, your business should already have your next regular service check scheduled upon completion of the lot. Here are some steps you can take to ensure you're properly servicing your asphalt paving.

Sealing on Schedule

After your asphalt pavement construction is laid, you will need to wait about six months before sealcoating so that your asphalt can cure properly. Coating your fresh blacktop is essential because it protects the asphalt from deterioration. Things like UV rays, vehicle oil, and standing water can age your lot and cause asphalt potholes and other types of damage. This is especially important in shifting climates like what we see in Massachusetts. Once you have your initial sealcoating service completed, make sure that you have a timeline for the next application already on the schedule. Working with an asphalt paving contractor will help facilitate your schedule since they can keep track of when you need services.

Cleaning Your Industrial Lot

One way to maintain your new lot without drastic asphalt maintenance is to do periodic cleaning of the entire area. Dirt, chemicals, and other debris can wear down your pavement from the top down. You can help maintain your new industrial lot by having sweepers come in occasionally to clear the area. If there are widespread areas of stuck-on debris or oil stains, a pressure wash service can also help drastically. The cost of having your lot cleaned will be more budget-friendly than repairing the damage that comes from caked-on residue. Again, this is especially important in snowy areas. Cleaning a lot before the snow lies on it all winter will allow the asphalt to stay in its most natural state during the freeze/thaw cycle.

Make Repairs Quickly

Regardless of how well you’ve worked to clean your lot and have your sealcoating completed on schedule, you will need repairs at some point. The most important thing you can do when you find cracking, crumbling, or spots that are starting to look concerning is to give a commercial asphalt company a call to evaluate. Minor issues are often nothing to be overly concerned about, but if left untreated, they will spread. The bigger the areas of deterioration, the more you run the risk of needing a complete repavement. Cassidy Paving recommends that customers call when they see something out of the ordinary with their asphalt. By not allowing small issues to become larger catastrophes, you will save time, money, and lower your liability risk so that your company can continue business as usual.
