With winter drawing to a close, your asphalt is more prominent than ever in the spring sunshine. If you have asphalt paving in your place of business, spring is a great time to take care of maintenance. Asphalt is durable but requires work to keep it looking its best. Cooper Paving, an asphalt paving company in Glen Burnie, MD, offers tips to taking care of your asphalt during the spring thaw.
Examine your pavement
With snow and ice melting, you can have a clear view of your asphalt pavement following the winter months. This is the perfect opportunity for a thorough examination of your pavement. Water exposure can damage asphalt after a time, so that snow and ice build-up may leave your pavement cracked. Cracks become bigger and create more damage if not repaired quickly. This could create a safety hazard for employees and customers that use your commercial lot. Taking the time to look at the state of your pavement can save you time and money, as well as preserve the well-being of others.
Touch up details
As you take a closer look at your pavement, you may notice that harsh winter weather took a toll on the smaller details of your paved lot. Paint may have chipped or washed away in this time. This may seem like a minor problem, but aesthetic details can play a crucial role in how customers see your business. Amending these issues can keep customers coming to your commercial establishment.
Keep it clean
Outdoor space like a paved asphalt lot can become dirty over time. With the spring sun shining a spotlight on your lot, you want to ensure your pavement looks its best. You should clear litter and debris from your lot regularly to ensure your lot – and inherently your commercial establishment – looks appealing to customers. Additionally, debris can reach storm drains and clog them, leading to flooding. Standing water can then damage your asphalt. Spring cleaning is therefore beneficial for your home and for your asphalt.
