Winter is not the time to do anything outdoorsy in the mid South region. Parking lot sweeping in Tennessee is something of an exception.
Here are three reasons why:.
First and foremost, sweeping your lot any time of the year improves safety conditions for you, your employees and visitors to your property. Winter storms have a definite tendency to drop branches on trafficked roads and pour down cold rain that leaches oils up from the asphalt, where they’ve been building up all summer and fall. By dragging those obstructions away and pressure washing the residual grease off, your sweeping service helps keep the lot outside your store, rental property or office block clean and safe for public use.
With a clean lot, how can customers stay away? Actually, customers care a lot about how your grounds appear, as they care about easy parking and clear markings in the lot. Clean Sweep can help with all three of these issues. We can clear debris out of your driving and parking areas, pressure wash surfaces to clear away ground-in grime and old paint, and then stripe your lot with fresh, reflective high-visibility markings. The effect of these actions, which may be separately booked if only one or two services are needed, is to create a pleasant, clean-looking space people want to shop in. This effect is magnified if you have competing businesses nearby with dingy, branch-strewn lots that contrast with the attractive cleanliness of yours.
Fewer Problems Later
The essential act of parking lot sweeping is the sweeping, which powers off old dirt and grease. Frequent power washes also help address problems before they begin, or at least before they get worse. A pile of dropped leaves, for instance, starts out as a loose heap, but as cars and pedestrians’ feet repeatedly crush the pile, those leaves can get compacted and release their oils. In the rain, this tannin seeps into the cracks in the pavement and speeds the process of erosion on the asphalt or concrete. Just as letting cobwebs accumulate on your building’s exterior causes a faster accumulation of grime and dirt, so letting waste pile up in your lot during the winter months makes it harder to sweep away in spring.
Winter is not the best time to go outside, and it probably doesn't feel like the best time to do maintenance to your lot. It is important to realize that waste, litter, debris, and harmful chemicals are still accumulating and some types of debris pile up faster in winter than at any other time.
