How to Maintain an Underground Parking Lot Clean

How to Maintain an Underground Parking Lot Clean
by Jerome Foster - February 28, 2021

Maintaining an underground parking lot often requires constant attention to detail and the use of specialized equipment. It can be difficult to find the time and resources to maintain an underground parking lot. You need to hire a utility locating service to make sure all the wires needed to light the parking lot were installed properly. Other services such as plumbing, cleaning companies, and electrical companies are also required to make sure the vehicle owners have safe parking.

You can't just leave the dirt and debris alone, or else it will get worse. You must clean up after yourself and keep everything looking nice for others who may use the space in the future.

This article will provide you with some helpful tips to keep your parking lot clean and tidy. Follow these steps and maintain the appearance of your property.

Clean Car Tires

Clean your car off before driving into the underground parking lot, don't let any dirt or debris fall onto the ground when entering or exiting your vehicle. Also, clear all the garbage inside your car so you don’t throw it away inside the lot.

Clear Leaves

Sweep out any leaves from under parked cars. This will help prevent them from blowing around when vehicles enter or exit the parking lot later or on during windy days. 

Arrange Stored Stuff

If you are storing extra stuff from the house like furniture or carpets or anything else, arrange it properly so that it does not look bad sitting inside the lot. Arranged stuff will also use less space leaving more space for cars.

Clean After Moving

When finished using a section of the garage floor for storage purposes, sweep up all dust and debris left behind by moving items around with a broom or vacuum cleaner before vacating said area again for another user to make it look neat and clean.

Notice Breakage

You should check for any broken bulbs in your parking lot and replace them as soon as possible. Also, check for any crack in the walls and get them fixed too. You should also check for leaked gas or water pipes and get those fixed too because those can be actually dangerous.

Sweep Debris

Sweep up any debris that has fallen on the ground. This will help prevent dirt from being kicked up into the air when cars drive over it. Debris or dust can make your lot look tacky and untidy. Sweeping the parking lot will also help reduce the accidents in case there are tiny objects that can cause the vehicle's tire to explode.

Treat Grease Stains

Treat the grease stains left by cars around the lot with chemicals so that the dust and other debris don’t stick on them and create a mess in your parking lot. You can use the special cleaners made for grease stains to avoid extra hassle.

Use Pressure Wash

Use a pressure washer or high-pressure hose for cleaning surfaces like concrete walls and floors. This will clean out any leftover dust and can prove to be very helpful for tough stains which you can not take out with normal cleaning techniques. With this method, you need to have a good plumbing service to produce enough water for cleaning.

Check for Seepage

When you are in there, you should also check for seepage or a gas leak inside the parking lot, because liquids seeping through walls or odors and smells can also make your lot look and smell bad. Use deodorizer regularly.

These simple steps will ensure that your underground parking lot is always spotless and ready for customers!
