Steps for Easy Parking Lot Maintenance

  1. Restrict Heavy Vehicle Traffic. Heavy vehicles can cause a lot of damage to your parking lot, so try to limit how often heavy vehicles are in your parking lot, and for how long they stay.
  2. Clean Your Parking Lot Regularly. Keep your parking lot free of dirt, debris, and trash by sweeping it regularly. Also clean up any spills, especially oil spills. Caustic substances like oil and other fluids from vehicles can degrade your asphalt.
  3. Stay on Top of Cracks and Potholes. Repair cracks and potholes as soon as possible as they will only get worse with time. The longer you have let cracks or potholes grow, the more expensive they will be to fix!
  4. Do Regular Sealcoating. Sealcoating adds a new layer of protection to your asphalt parking lot, and it also renews its black color like when the asphalt was new. Sealcoating should be done every few years.
