Importance of Parking Lot Sweeping
One Chance for a First Impression!
The parking lot and its surrounding areas are just as important as the inside. Cleanliness is a major factor in determining where people shop. The parking lot is where customers form a first impression of the company. A clean lot projects an image of success. A dirty parking lot that is filled with debris may even prevent customers from going inside. Finally, a clean parking lot will deter patrons from littering.
The accumulation of trash, sand, rocks, etc. is inevitable. Vehicles drive into the parking lot and the sand/dirt that is on their tires stick to the pavement. Therefore, your property should be on a regular cleaning schedule.
What if your parking lot is left unattended?
If any area of the parking lot is left unattended, it becomes susceptible to roaches, rodents, and bacteria. Furthermore, sand and other debris are very harmful because they can hold and store water. If the sand and other debris are left to sit on the pavement, the water that is trapped can penetrate into the asphalt. Once the water seeps into the asphalt, it freezes and thaws, expanding into cracks, which expand and grow during freezing conditions. Parking lot sweeping removes all sand and debris, thus avoiding these problems.
Storm Water Runoff & Parking Lot Sweeping
Stormwater runoff is becoming more of an issue in our environment as the catch-basins accumulate with trash and other sediments, causing it to seep into the earth's waterways. Parking lot sweeping is the EPA's number one solution to reducing the amount of pollutants that enter our waterways.
