Keeping Parking Lots Clean & Safe

Keeping Parking Lots Clean & Safe

Street and parking lot sweeping, one of the more underrated practices that goes on in a city or urban area. Most people will pride themselves on their business or residential area based upon the appearance of their building. However a first impression expands to the complete package of the property upkeep as well. Having a clean parking lot and roadway is essential for a positive reputation and appearance.

When someone views a nice restaurant and is considering whether they want to dine at that location, one might second guess their decision if they see an untidy, trash and debris infested parking lot resting outside the building. For a solid first-impression on those viewing your location, maintaining the complete package is vital.

Street Sweeping: Not Just Aesthetics, But Safety

As street and parking lot sweeping is key for an aesthetic appearance, it’s also reliable in preventing damages and potential hazards. For instance slip-and-falls that could result in massive legal fees, or the clogging of storm drains during the harsh seasons, which could result in minor flooding, making accidents more prone to happen. With street sweeping being defined as a Best Management Practice (BMP) by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), denying the credibility and usefulness of regular maintenance via street sweeping is hard to do.

    I really like the point you made about customers second guessing their choice based on cleanliness. It seems like the parking lot plays a big role with curb appeal. Seeing trash everywhere makes me think the inside is probably dirty too. I imagine most upscale business hire parking lot sweepers.

    I think it would be really nice to have a clean and safe street to drive on. I know that we have street sweepers in every city but the only time I really see them would be when we have construction going on. They keep the dust down and the rocks from getting all over the place. I think they could use the sweepers for cleaning the streets in general.

    I like how you mentioned that if a business is wanting to help increase their clientele that first impressions are always a good start. It’s good to know that one way to make one is by making sure their parking lot clean, and tidy to help draw people to come in and see them. Personally, a clean parking lot makes me want to visit a business more.

    It makes sense that keeping parking lots safe would be important. I can see why street sweeping would be beneficial! That way it can clear away anything that could potentially damage the lot.
