Keeping your commercial lot in pristine condition is important when you run a business, as it’s often the first thing a potential customer will see when they come to your location. When you’re busy with what’s going on inside the building it is easy to forget about the outside. Here are three simple tips to keep your lot looking its best. Following these tips will make your lot easier on the eyes while saving you money.
One of the easiest warning signs to overlook is pooling water in your lot. We are used to seeing standing water along streets and sidewalks, so we often dismiss it on our lots as totally normal. Unfortunately, this is a sign of poor drainage on your lot and the standing water can lead to damage for your surface. This shortens your lot’s lifespan, meaning more money out of your pocket. If you notice pockets of standing water that shows where your lot is draining improperly, you should contact an asphalt professional to fix it before it becomes a bigger problem.
Seal and Fill
As time goes by your lot will eventually begin to crack. If left unchecked, a small crack can quickly result in damage that requires full replacement. You should always get your cracks filled as soon as you notice them to avoid a full replacement. Adding a protective UV seal over your lot will also extend its life and reduce the risks of cracks and holes.
Keeping your lot clean is beneficial to more than just it’s appearance, it also removes potentially hazardous debris or fluids which can damage the surface. Make sure that regular cleaning is a part of your property’s maintenance schedule.
