Maintaining a Parking Lot

This article will answer these four important questions about parking lot maintenance services.

1) Why is it so important?

2) What types of services are available?

4) What should I look for in a contractor?

The Importance of Parking Lot Maintenance

Proper parking lot maintenance is important for many reasons, including:

1) It helps to keep everyone safe! Pavement markings help to control the flow of traffic, protecting both drivers and pedestrians.

2) It is important to stay compliant with ADA requirements. Every parking lot must have the right amount of properly marked, handicap accessible spaces.

3) It makes your business look great! The parking lot is the first (and last) thing you customers will encounter when visiting your business.

4) Preventative parking lot maintenance can add years to the life of your parking lot. Preventative maintenance can also help you avoid costly emergency repairs.

Parking Lot Maintenance Services

1) Cleaning and sweeping is an important part of the on-going maintenance of your parking lot. The nature of your business and the size of your parking lot will affect the frequency (and length) of each visit. For more information, check out our Parking Lot Sweeping Cost Report.

2) Sealing (or sealcoating) helps to protect the asphalt surface from water and sun damage. It also helps improves the general appearance of your parking lot. For pricing information, click on over to our parking lot sealing page.

3) Filling potholes and sealing cracks is very important to the structural integrity of your parking lot. Repairing these issues as soon as possible helps to prevent further damage to the surface. It also dramatically improves the curb appeal of your business.

4) Re-striping helps to keep your parking lot functional and safe for all people. Parking stall lines should be clearly marked at all times. Other markings, including directional arrows, help to keep traffic moving efficiently. For a more detailed report, check out our article about the cost of re-striping a parking lot.

5) Landscaping and lawn care may also be an important part of maintaining medians, islands, and other areas surrounding your parking lot. These services are typically handled by a separate landscaping company. Use our free matching service to find a local lawn service for your project.
