1. Seeing Is Believing

You may think your parking lot looks fine, but if you took some time to walk around your lot you would notice that there may be some spots that need some work. Doing routine visual inspections allow you to catch minor problems before they grow in major issues.

2. Do A Clean Sweep

Putting off cleaning your parking lot only will only create a big headache for you later down the road. Frequently cleaning your lot allows you to remove any dirt, oil, and debris that tend to accumulate on parking lots. Letting dirt, oil, and debris build-up will lead to drainage issues that can result in cracks and potholes appearing in your parking lot.

3. Fill Those Cracks

If you notice a wide crack in your parking lot, the best thing to do is have the crack filled as soon as possible. Cracks should not be left unfixed because the can cause irreversible damage to your sub-base. Once the damage is done the only thing you can do is have your parking lot replaced which can be expensive.

4. Don’t Forget About Sealing

Sealcoating your parking lot every couple of years is crucial to extending the life of your investment. No two parking lots are the same, so the frequency of having your parking lot seal coated will depend on factors such as climate and traffic.
