Parking lot water runoff maintenance is important. In fact, taking proper care of your parking lot water runoff is imperative to keeping your property in good shape and in good working order.

For example, if you own or operate a retail store and the parking lot has a lot of divots and broken or cracked asphalt consumers may easily assume that you’re not taking the proper care of your parking lot. They may then think that you don’t take proper care of your store. So, what happens next? Your potential customer leaves your store and shops at one of your competitors. Let’s say that you charge people to park in your parking because the city or town does not have ample parking available on the street. Do you think that people will want to pay good money to park in your parking lot if it looks like you neglect it?

Obviously, they will look for other parking solutions and only pay to park in your parking lot out of desperation.
