Do you have a plan to keep your asphalt parking lot clean? If not, it could be affecting your bottom line. This often-overlooked task is essential to maintaining a safe and functional parking lot that keeps your business moving and liability low. If regular asphalt maintenance and repair is a priority for your organization, cleaning should be too. It can be a vicious cycle of safety issues, deterioration, and missed business opportunities if you fail to do regular cleaning. Here’s more of what a clean parking lot does for your bottom line.

The Benefits of Paving Business Lots

Good First Impressions

The most obvious issue that a dirty parking lot brings is a bad first impression. Your commercial asphalt paving is the first thing people notice when they come to your property. Excess dirt, grime, and debris are not a good way to introduce yourself to potential customers. Unsightly parking lots can drive away business and anyone that would have otherwise been interested in becoming a tenant in your commercial space. If you fail to care for the appearance of your building, it could indicate that you are not dedicated to providing a clean and safe area. Don’t let this be the message you’re sending to those unfamiliar with your business.

Frequently Needed Repairs

Leaving debris on your parking lot isn’t just unappealing, but it could be affecting the integrity of your asphalt. Surface dirt, debris, and stains can cause deterioration because it wears down the protective layers of the blacktop. If left on the parking lot for a long time, it will wear down the sealcoating and could eventually get down to the aggregate. Dirt is abrasive under consistent heavy loads of vehicles, and chemical stains are proven to deteriorate asphalt prematurely. If you want to make sure your asphalt services budget isn’t wasted on repetitive repairs to asphalt potholes and cracks, cleaning is necessary. Frequent maintenance is sure to affect your bottom line, especially if you don’t implement a proactive cleaning schedule.

Determining a Cleaning Schedule

Making an asphalt maintenance plan that includes frequent cleaning is essential. Cleaning can consist of any of the following:
  • Sweeping
  • Pressure washing
  • Debris (such as limb and leaves) clean up
  • Stain removal
These are especially important if you have a large parking lot. You can schedule these with an asphalt paving contractor or a commercial cleaning company- some things you can also handle on your own if your parking lot is smaller. The key to protecting your bottom line isn’t how you get the cleaning work done, professionally or in-house. The important part is that you get it done before accumulating dirt, debris, and stains cause even more significant problems.
