How to Prepare Your Parking Lot for Winter
As a business owner, you want to provide a safe environment for your customers, and this means making sure that your parking lot is well maintained. In the winter, parking lot maintenance requires more work. You must regularly shovel snow (or have it shoveled) and toss out salt or sand to melt ice so no one slips or has an accident with their vehicle. At Total Asphalt, we know parking lot paving and parking lot repaving better than anyone. So, we have a few tips for business owners on how to keep their parking lots safe and as well maintained as possible throughout the winter.

Clean Your Parking Lot Thoroughly
Certain spills can eat through your asphalt over time, so you want to clear all spills away before the snow covers and conceals them. Also, rocks, debris, sticks, and trash present safety hazards when snowplows hit them.
Have Your Drainage System Inspected
If your drainage system is in good working order, it can quickly move water away from your parking lot. However, if there are clogs, water moves slowly, leaving ice to form in frigid temperatures.
Get Crack Filling
By sealing up existing cracks, you reduce the risk of potholes forming.
