Keeping Your Asphalt Parking Lot Safe in the Winter

December 15, 2020 2:59 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

It’s no secret that the winter season poses some additional safety risks that we don’t see in the spring and summer. One of the most notable risks comes in the form of unsafe parking lots and sidewalks due to snow and ice. Winter weather creates surfaces that makes car accidents, falls, and other injuries occur more frequently. Keeping your asphalt parking lot safe through the winter months is essential to keeping everyone, including yourself, as safe as possible. Follow these tips to keep your asphalt parking lot safe this winter!

Keep the Parking Lot Clear

Make keeping a clear parking lot one of your top priorities through the fall and winter seasons. Twigs, leaves, ice, snow, and other seasonal debris poses the risk of injury and accident. As snow starts to fall, use a snowplow or snow blower to effectively keep your parking lot clear. You can hire a professional to clear the parking lot if you don’t have the time to do it each day.

Do a Safety Inspection

Before winter, do a safety inspection of your entire parking lot and sidewalks. Look for cracks, bumps, potholes, and uneven areas that could create a safety risk. You should also ensure your parking lot lines and signs are clearly visible and that adequate lighting is put up so people can see after the sun sets. Bring a licensed contractor along for this inspection if you’re unsure of what to look for.

Repair Damages

Once you’ve assessed the damages to your parking lot, it’s time to get them repaired! Contact an asphalt contractor to get the job done right and to help minimize the risk of future damages. An asphalt contractor can apply a sealcoating that protects the pavement against cracks and holes during the snowplowing season. They can also help repaint lines, reposition signs, and any other safety measures that your parking lot may need. Attempting to make asphalt repairs yourself is not a good idea. It’s a job that needs to be done using the right materials, equipment, and knowledge that you don’t have, but a licensed contractor will!
