Keep reading to learn more for tips on commercial pavement upkeep!

Conduct Routine Inspections of the Area

One of the most important steps to take to keep your asphalt surfaces in good order is to regularly monitor the area. Conduct routine inspections of all paved surfaces to check for potential damage, drainage issues, cracks, and more. Don’t just eyeball the parking lot from the front entryway; actually walk the full length of your paved surfaces, all the way to each side. It’s important to deal with damages as soon as possible to prevent larger issues in the future. 

Clean the Asphalt Often

Harmful chemicals from vehicle engines can drip onto your paved surfaces and cause damage over time. The material that can drip onto your parking lot or paved surfaces can deteriorate the asphalt quickly, so be sure to clean the asphalt often. Aim to clean your paved surfaces monthly to extend the life of your paved surfaces.

Clear Debris and Drainage

Debris can collect in a commercial space quickly if you don’t monitor it. Surface debris like leaves or trash can collect on your paved surfaces and cause drainage issues, stains, and other deterioration. Improper drainage can cause major damage down the line if you aren’t careful.

Consider Sealcoating the Surface

Sealcoating is a great preventative maintenance step that can extend the life of your parking lot or paved surface. We recommend seal coating at least every three years to keep your paved surfaces top-notch. A fresh seal coat can do wonders to your paved surfaces, both aesthetically and functionally. 

Repair Damages Right Away

If you happen to notice a crack or pothole forming, be sure to fix it right away. Cracks and potholes that are not attended to right away can grow larger, which can impact the cost and extent of the repairs.
