Have you ever pulled up to a business, opened up your car door to set foot outside and then found yourself hovering your shoes over the asphalt, hesitant to put a boot down due to a pool of what can only be described as... "yuck." I think we have all been in that situation before at least once.
For a business that's trying to keep up with appearances and the hustle and bustle of everyday goings-on, the cleanliness of a parking lot can be easy to forget about. You should try hard not to forget about them though, and here's why:
It's easy to point out the obvious, but many people don't really stop to think about it this way. One of the first impressions people will have of your business gets made on them in the parking lot. What does it say about any commercial enterprise whose parking lot has trash and grime collected all over it?
Professionally, pressure washing your parking lot will give people an impression of professionalism and class. Not to mention a feeling of safety as they walk towards your front doors.
We can get into a very long list of the type of unsightly, undesirable substances that can build up in a parking lot, but for simplicity's sake (and for the sake of keeping down our lunch), let's just name a few: vehicle fluids (such as oil), discarded food, animal droppings, grease, trash, leaf matter, and on and on. These materials aren't only a sanitary concern, they can be a slipping hazard. Pressure washing your parking lot washes away this detritus, as well as disinfecting all immediate surface areas.
That's right. When certain contaminants touchdown on a parking lot and are left there, they can slowly be absorbed by the paved material that covers the ground, and over time causes cracks to form. If these substances aren't safely washed out and stayed on top of, you could be looking at very costly repairs.
They are both attached to each other, after all. Regular parking lot maintenance will give a good impression of your property's overall value and freshness. If your parking lot looks brand new, your business will seem all the younger for it.
I had to save the most disturbing reason for last. Rodents, pests, and other unwanted visitors such as raccoons and pigeons will gather anywhere there's a collection of trash, and when it is left on the ground of a parking lot - that's easy pickings for them! Pressure washing your parking lot clean will keep them out.
