When you’re a busy company with a hundred things to worry about every day, the paint on your parking lot may be the least of your concerns.
So why should you pay so much attention to the surface of your parking lot?
Here are three benefits to maintaining clear striping and signage.
Keep Your Business Looking Sharp
Your customers may be coming to you for the tasty sandwiches, expert legal help, or deals on designer labels, but the look of your business has just as much appeal as what you offer.
Clean black asphalt that contrasts with bright bold striping gives your business a lot of cosmetic appeal.
Improve Traffic Flow
Parking lot markings may be crucial if your business is situated next to a busy highway or thoroughfare. You want your customers to safely arrive at and exit from your establishment. The last thing you want is for people to blame congested traffic on your business.
Customers will also appreciate knowing where they can easily and safely park and cross traffic lanes.
Clearly marked lanes and directional arrows can help your visiting customers from getting into fender benders.
In the event of an emergency, your business may need a well-marked fire lane. If this area is kept clear of traffic, emergency vehicles can easily access your facility. But you may run some legal risks if your business is difficult to access in an emergency.
Additionally, you aren’t likely to be held liable for customer accidents like slips and falls if you have curbs and walkways clearly denoted.
