Commercial parking lot maintenance in Mississauga looks after keeping the ice and snow under control during the winter months. However, it’s important to pay attention to parking lots during every season to prevent slips and falls.
Parking lot maintenance can help protect business owners from liability claims. We can repair catch basins, curbs, paint lines and even fix potholes and asphalt.
Here’s a few tips that can help you steer clear of any other potential hazards.
- Position shopping carts in the parking lot. You might have employees or customers who carry armloads of bags and boxes in and out of your building. Having shopping carts available cuts down on the chances there will be an accident. These help to make the trip from the parking lot into your business or vice versa safer and smoother.
- You need to consider older people. These customers or employees might not notice uneven areas or curbs. Commercial lighting can make sure that your parking lot is well lit for children, the elderly and the disabled.
- You should also be aware of “off road” traffic. This happens when people develop shortcuts through unpaved areas. You might need to pave these areas for safety reasons or add some barriers.
- You’ll also need to be aware of seasonal changes beyond the winter. If your parking lot is lit by timers, you need to adjust for the start and finish of daylight savings time.
- Senior citizens and people with disabilities can have issues backing out of parking spaces. Adding pull-through spots to your parking lot can help them and increase traffic flow.
