Parkades are riskier than you might think. This common part of life can hide hazards that increase the risk of vehicle accidents and pedestrian falls. As a business owner, it’s important to keep your parking lot as safe as possible.
Reduce the risk of these five dangers with parkade cleaning in Calgary.
Engine oil, antifreeze, water, and fuel are some of the most common liquids found in parking lots. If allowed to stand, they can damage the parkade and create a slick surface that makes slips more likely. Regular parkade cleaning in Calgary removes vehicle and other fluids to leave your lot safer and looking great.
Another common parking lot danger is the risk of falling; this is particularly true for elderly people. Potholes, cracks, and other pavement problems make tripping and falling more likely. Even a little unevenness makes a big difference. Prompt repair of these issues during parkade maintenance and cleaning helps make the parking lot safer.
During the winter, parkades become more hazardous due to the accumulation of snow and ice. Both vehicles and pedestrians are more prone to slipping when snow and ice are present, leading to a greater risk of accidents. Keeping your parking lot clear by scheduling regular snow removal and cleaning services help maintain a safe parkade.
Faded lines make it more difficult for vehicles to navigate a parking lot and can make accidents more common. If the lines in your parking lot aren’t as fresh and sharp as they could be, schedule line painting along with your next parkade cleaning in Calgary.
Trash, leaves, and other debris can build up in parking lots. This can make walking through the area more dangerous and unpleasant. It also increases the likelihood of pests that can carry diseases and make the lot even dirtier. Parkade cleaning in Calgary removes all of this debris so that the lot is safer, looks better, and doesn’t attract as many pests.
Parkade cleaning may not be at the top of your to-do list, but it’s an important part of running a business. Keeping your lot clean not only makes a good impression and helps reduce unnecessary damage to the pavement, but it also helps eliminate parking lot dangers to both people and vehicles.
