Do you know that your parking lot plays a big factor in your customers’ satisfaction? A bad experience in the parking lot, for any reason, can fire back at the business itself. A clean and secured parking lot can make your customers feel safe. No one wants to leave their car to a place that looks like an abandoned lot. Potholes and cracks can cause serious accidents such as trips and falls. When this happens, your business reputation will surely be at risk.
Aside from this, a well-maintained parking lot can help you save on costs. A simple everyday sweeping can minimize the debris that can go to the existing cracks or holes. When cracks are ignored, rain, heat, or snow can penetrate through them, allowing the structure to weaken and disintegrate. Seal coating every 3 to 5 years can prevent this from happening. It is also said to double the life of your parking lot to 30 years.
In a recent article featured in New England Real Estate Journal, they write “If your parking lot is falling short, it could damage vehicles which is why it’s very important to maintain the quality of your parking lot to make sure your employees have a safe and clean place to park their vehicles.”
