What to Do About Dirty Parking Garages
Winter may be coming to an end soon, but from the looks of parking garages all over the country, the sand, salt, dirt, and debris left over from winter will be lingering for a while. This leaves property managers wondering what to do about the dirty remnants of winter. To keep parking garages safe and welcoming for tenants and visitors of your buildings, professional parking garage cleaning can help! There are many options when it comes to proper upkeep of parking garages. Read on to find suggestions from KEVCO’s building experts on how to maintain your parking garage year-round.
Why Do You Need Parking Garage Cleaning?
Keeping your parking garages clean is important for many reasons, but the top five reasons are:
- A clean garage makes a great first impression for tenants and visitors of your building.
- A clean garage discourages littering and sets the tone for cleanliness in the garage AND inside the building as well.
- A clean garage minimizes pollution of waterways, as dirty water can be reclaimed.
- A clean garage discourages erosion and deterioration of concrete, asphalt, and other garage surfaces.
- A clean garage prevents or deters rodents from establishing a territory in your garage. Debris and dirt are safe harbors for rodents.
Garage Cleaning Process
Parking garage cleaning comprises several steps, from an initial on-site inspection to a post-job walk-through. At KEVCO, we perform these steps to ensure every need of our client is met and to confirm job was completed to the customer’s satisfaction.
Garage cleaning companies use ride-on garage cleaning machines to clean most of the dirt and debris, but many times, pre-treatment of stains is necessary. Even when pre-treated, stubborn oil stains may not be removed 100%, and occasionally a shadowing effect happens.
Once all pre-cleaning work is done, from pre-treating stains to dusting overhead pipes to prevent dirt from dropping on car hoods, the garage cleaning crews board their ride-on garage sweepers and scrubbers and tackle the job at hand. These machines sweep and scrub the garage floors, vacuum up the residue, and remove the sand, salt, dirt, and debris left on the floors. The result: Your garage floors are virtually dry and ready for normal garage operation.
