Some things in life can be “set it and forget it.” That saying cannot be applied to your asphalt parking lot. Even the best laid asphalt parking lot still requires maintenance to look and perform at its best. So what can you do to keep your asphalt parking lot up to standard? Here are our tips and tricks!
The easiest way to avoid asphalt troubles is to keep an eye on your parking lot. Inspect your lot regularly, taking note of cracks, pooling water, and faded areas. These can all lead to damage to your lot if they aren’t fixed quickly.
Trash, litter, dirt, and debris not only make your parking lot look dirty and unprofessional, it can also mask and hide cracks, puddles, and fades. Clean your lot on a regular basis to ensure that no trouble is caused by dirt and debris.
If you find cracks in your asphalt, have it fixed as soon as possible, as today’s crack can become tomorrow’s pothole. Potholes and uneven ground can cause more damage, both to the rest of your lot, as well as any vehicles that use it.
Keep your asphalt looking great, and keep it protected by applying sealer every two to three years depending on the condition of your lot. They prevent oil, salt, and weather conditions from damaging your lot. If your lot gets damaged, water can get inside the asphalt and wreak havoc.
