It was the most fun high school job you can remember. Your best friend’s dad owned the biggest lumber store in town and they always had extra work that needed to be done. The summer after your senior year, her dad asked if the two of you girls wanted to make some extra money. The task was to repaint all of the parking lines in the parking lot. He would hire one of the parking lot sweeping services in town to clean off most of the lot, and the two of you had all day Sunday to repaint the lines. It was a blast. Getting to use all kinds of fun power paint tools, you were able to paint, get a tan, and get paid all at the same time. You were both a little unsteady at first, so it is lucky he had you start on the lines in the far corner. Within a few minutes, however, you understood the machine and how it operated. By the time the store reopened on Monday and all of the staff returned to work, they had no idea that the great parking lot repaint was achieved by two high school girls in tank tops!
Parking lot sweeping services are an important maintenance task that improves the visual appeal of your business. In addition to making it look nice, parking lot clean up projects can keep your lot safer. Extra amounts of large gravel, for example, can create a slippery surface for pedestrians coming through your lot.
Parking lot cleaners can also be contracted to maintain the sidewalks and walkways that lead your customers from the lot to the front door of your business. In fact, a well maintained parking area and sidewalk area are important to attracting customers. Many people, especially new customers who are visiting your location for the first time, consider exterior cleanliness to be as important as interior cleanliness.
In addition to parking lot sweeping services for large and small businesses, many cities also have street sweeping services that they hire. Machines for street sweeping were first developed during the 19th century, and many neighborhoods know that the end of every winter and the end of every summer they will have their streets swept. Gathering up gravel used for traction during the icy winter months is one of the most popular jobs that street sweepers provide. As weather turns warm and young friends start bike riding again, a street sweeper can help eliminate the scene of many an early spring bike crash. The gravel that helps create traction on snow and ice during the winter months, is the same gravel that can cause both cars and bicycles to spin out and loose traction once the streets are dry.
