When this winter finally comes to an end, it is a good time to start thinking about the maintenance of your business premises and that should begin with the outside of it.

Perhaps, over winter it has been icy and even there has been snow on the ground. Both these things may have impaired your ability to keep on top of the maintenance of the outdoors properly.

So, when the weather finally does give you a break, this is the time to head outside and inspect your asphalt parking lot properly.

Here are some things to think about when it comes to making sure it looks it best!

SWEEP IT UP

Before you do anything else, a once over with a broom is in order.

This will also ensure that you have walked every square inch of the outside of the property and seen anything that might need doing.

You will notice things that you didn’t before, liked blocked drains and guttering, to cracks and potholes in the asphalt.

Oil and water are two liquids you really don’t want to see on your asphalt parking lot, so make sure these are brushed up and cleaned away.

Make a note of all the problems to the parking lot, before proceeding any further and ensure that asphalt is brushed clean of all debris!

TAKE ACTION ON POTHOLES

If during your rounds with the broom you do spot a pothole, it is time to take decisive action, before it grows any larger.

Not only are potholes unsightly – and this is the first impression a lot of your customers will get of your business – but they can actually cause damage to vehicles. This is not something that you want, especially if you are trying to impress a client!

Fortunately, potholes or cracks are not as scary as they might first seem, to rectify. They can be covered using a patch, if they are not too large.

A specialist in asphalting can help you with this task, if you do not feel like you want to attempt it alone – although for smaller holes, it might be quite easy to do so.

PROTECT IT

If you have been lucky enough to make it through the ravages of winter without it affecting your asphalt driveway, then you should consider seal coating your driveway against any future damage.

In fact, when you have sealed any holes up, you should also seal coat afterward.

This will help your driveway withstand the elements and everything that the next four seasons has to throw at it!
