When it comes to business, people are always touting “location, location, location.” After all, if you have a storefront, then the location of it can actually make or break it in terms of customer traffic. However, when you think about your location, have you considered the curb-appeal of it? What we are talking about here is your parking lot. Your parking lot is valuable real estate, so if it is looking dirty, it reflects poorly on your business, and it can be a hazard for consumers and a liability for you. So you want to keep your parking lot looking clean to improve sanitation, curb appeal and minimize liability issues. Because oil spills and algae build up, due to our humid weather here in Southwest Florida, can be slipping hazards, as well as make your parking lot look terrible.
Aside from that, municipalities like Lee County, Collier County, Fort Myers, Bonita, Estero, Naples, and Cape Coral all demand that local business owners maintain appearances in accordance with local ordinances. And they are willing to cite owners that fail to do so with fines.
Acting like a sponge, concrete parking lots absorb all kinds of contaminants, dirt, and grime. There are several kinds of stains your parking lot and the sidewalk in front of your store can get. These include: oil stains from leaking cars; tire marks; mold; mildew; algae; water stains; rust; salt stains from the ocean water here in the air; and weeds in the cracks.
When it comes to life expectancy of your parking lot, keep in mind that the oils, algae build up and even the salt that is constantly in the air of our beachy towns, break down the building materials of your parking lot. Weeds can cause your concrete to degenerate and crumble and crack. Salt corrodes concrete and helps it crack. Our pressure washing services can effectively reduce the amount of damage done to your parking lot, increasing its life expectancy.
Although we don’t have ice to worry about here in SWFL, we do have mold and algae growths, which are not just slippery, but can even crack or warp paved surfaces, leading to tripping hazards. These safety issues can expose you, and your customers or visitors, to danger. Slipping and falling is a very common reason people file personal injury lawsuits.
That’s why pressure washing provides more than just aesthetic benefits. Removing the mold, algae, dirt, oil buildup and other substances from your concrete and pavers also helps reduce your legal liability.
If your sidewalks and parking lot look dirty or have a build up of oil, algae or salt on them, give us a call at Under Pressure at 239-218-5085.
