When owning a professional business, the outside look is just as important as what is on the inside. Whether you own a business building that employees come to work at, have a brick-and-mortar store-front that customers come to, or are a property manager for a housing property with tenants, the look and condition of your property’s parking lot and surrounding paved areas are important.
One issue that many St. Louis, MO business owners may face on their property, especially during harsher winter months, is water pooling on the concrete. This is an issue that can be taken care of in a few ways.
Check Your Area’s Drainage
Water pooling may be a sign that the area is not draining properly. If the issue has seemed to get worse over time, you may have debris blocking your drainage channels. Check the flow of your drains to see if poor drainage is the underlying problem, or if there is another issue with the actual concrete.
Redirect Heavy Gutter Flows
If the concrete or asphalt is already totally level, make sure that you do not have many gutters that direct rainwater to flow into a specific area on a patio, driveway, or concrete lot. By redirecting downspouts into different areas, you can prevent pooling in a specific area – unless you have uneven concrete or potholes that will continue to pool water.
