Parking lots are exposed to dirt, various fluid stains from vehicles, discarded food, beverages, gum, and even bird droppings. The lists of contaminants that parking lots are exposed to can be endless and even disgusting. Keeping parking lots cleaned is important for many reasons. Big Moose Pressure Cleaning will cover some of the reasons why parking lots need to be regularly cleaned and how pressure washing is an effective way to maintain them.
Dirt, Gum, Droppings, Litter & More Found on Parking Lots
Parking lots are often used as garbage cans. There are many people out there who will litter, spit out their gum, and throw cigarette butts on the ground. Add all of that to what the cars and trucks leave behind. Additionally, pests such as rodents and birds leave urine and droppings around that could contain harmful pathogens and diseases. Not only are all of the elements that parking lots are exposed be potentially hazardous, they also make parking lots look dirty and undesirable. This can push numerous customers away. To help encourage customers to come to your property, you will want to keep it clean.
Pressure Washing Prevents Paint & Concrete Erosion
Most parking lot contaminants can make a parking lot dirty and at the same time can also cause damages or increase costly upkeep. Parking lot paint often gets worn away or becomes obstructed from view. In such cases they are not easily seen which makes parking more difficult. Emergency or handicap areas are often designated by paint and signs. However when the parking lot isn’t maintained and the paint is worn away or covered up this creates a hazard. By law, “no parking” areas are designated with red paint on the curb or edges to give access to emergency vehicles. If these areas are not visible, the property owner or management team could be held accountable in the event an emergency occurs. Bird droppings are very acidic and can cause erosion. If large areas of bird droppings are concentrated together in a single area, repaving the parking lot or repairs will be required. By pressure washing or cleaning parking lots regularly you can prevent paint and concrete erosion.
Clean Parking Lot Keeps Pests Away
Pressure washing the parking lot helps prevent damage, repairs, and can extend the need for repairing. By having parking lot pressure cleaning the business owner can have the peace of mind that the property is cleaned and easily accessible for customer and patrons.
