Business owners have some different responsibilities to juggle to ensure a safe and profitable venture. It is easy to overlook certain items, especially when the business is thriving and the daily workload is significant. At Shaner Insurance Group Inc. we are always looking for ways to help support and inform our clients. To that end, we would like to highlight the importance of keeping your Tucson, AZ business parking lot clean and well-maintained.
Why Cleanliness Counts
When a customer or client comes to your place of business, your parking lot is the first chance that you have to make an impression. A clean, untidy or poorly-maintained lot will set the tone for your business relationship. Cleaning the parking lot should be a regular part of your weekly maintenance schedule, and can be as simple as taking a quick spin on the lot to pick up debris or trash, check the landscaping and make sure that any lighting or signage is in good shape.
Common Parking Lot Maintenance Issues
Over time, the surface of your parking lot will require maintenance. Whether through seasonal temperature fluctuations, storm damage or simple wear and tear, the surface of the lot can begin to show pits, buckles or excessive cracking. A good way to stay on top of these issues is to conduct a thorough inspection of the lot at least twice a year, preferably in the early fall and early spring. Check for areas where the surface of the lot has changed, and be proactive in filling cracks, patching holes and dealing with root intrusion or other damage. Taking care of these things now can avoid a customer or client becoming injured while on the property.
