Parking Lot Cleaning - 4 Reasons Why Cleaning Your Parking Area is a Good Idea

We are in the business of parking lot cleaning, so you may already be skeptical about the information you are about to read in this blog. The fact is our company would not be in the business of parking lot cleaning if the following facts weren't true. While they might not all apply to your personal situation, something may strike a chord. When it does, don't hesitate to call us for a hassle-free, no-cost, no obligation quote to clean your parking lot.

1. Image is Everything. People prefer a business with a clean image. Like it or not, the exterior of your property creates a first impression before a customer even sets foot through the front door. The accumulated dirt and trash in your parking lot could adversely affect the image a potential customer has of your products and services. I visited a local restaurant once (once being the operative word) that had a scum-covered front entry. The soles of my shoes stuck to the layer of grime on the concrete. Gross. I will not be back. What message is your parking lot sending about your business?

2. Dirt = Damage. Dirt, sand, pebbles, and other small debris are abrasive. These materials can result in costly damage to your parking lot as they slowly break down the asphalt surface. Customer traffic and weather, among other activities play a role in the constant grinding down of your parking lot. As it begins to deteriorate, it creates even more damaging materials including small pebbles and loose aggregate. Repairing and resurfacing a parking lot is much more expensive than a recurring sweeping service. Would cleaning your parking lot now be worth the time and money saved in the long run?

3. Cleanliness Begets Cleanliness. Cleaning your parking lot can work the same as removing graffiti from your walls to prevent further graffiti. People are more likely to treat a clean environment with more respect than a dirty one. If there isn't a scrap of trash to be seen, a litterer may think twice. Whereas if there are tens of thousands of cigarette butts in your parking lot, what is one more, right?

4. Pride and Professionalism. Take pride in property ownership. Don't own? That's okay, then take pride in your place of business. It will show your community of customers and other business owners that you take your business seriously and value it enough to keep it well maintained. A clean parking lot is inviting and welcoming to a customer. Trashy parking areas make people wonder if they should just keep on driving. Which one is your parking lot?
