Schedule Snow Removal
One of the first things on your list should be to get on the schedule for snow removal. In the St. Louis, MO area, snow can come at any time without warning. You don’t want to be surprised with sudden snow and no way to get rid of it. Definitely make sure to do your research beforehand and make sure you are hiring a reputable, reliable snow removal company.
Inspect the Drains
Up next on your list should be to check all the drains. Yes, making sure the drainage system of your lot is just as important as anything else, especially during the winter months. It’s not uncommon for snow to melt and re-freeze during the winter. Checking your drains will ensure that water can adequately move where it needs to without being hindered or blocked.
Stock Up on Salts and Melt Chemicals
It’s also a good idea to start stocking up on melting chemicals and salts. While you should get yourself on schedule for any snow removal services, having precautionary aids on hand is never a bad idea. These will help to protect your customers in the parking lot, on sidewalks, and on other areas that they may tread.
Have Potholes and Damages Repaired
And of course, the number one thing every parking lot owner should do is have potholes or damages repaired now before the weather gets bad. When snow or water fills up holes in asphalt, it can freeze in these cooler temperatures. That water will expand and contract as the weather changes, causing even more damage to your parking lot.
