Making Your Parking Areas & Shopping Center Look Fresh & Clean-A Complete Checklist

freshly striped asphalt roadway

At retail locations all over the country, traffic is picking up as the economic recovery continues and the holidays approach. Due to this increased traffic, you can expect that the need for paved surface maintenance will be even greater. Continuing regular maintenance of your paved surfaces instead of deferring maintenance allows you to save money on costly repairs and avoid the replacement cost for a much longer time frame. This checklist is a guideline to the many ways that parking areas, other paved surfaces, and the exterior of your retail facility can be maintained and cleaned by Atlantic Sweeping & Cleaning to make your property cleaner and safer.

Shopping Center Checklist

  • Ensure a regular power sweeping schedule is maintained
  • Inspect parking areas and other paved areas for cracks or potholes.
  • Inspect parking lot lines to identify fading and cracking.
  • Inspect and identify missing or damaged signage
  • Inspect and identify concrete damage on curbs, walkways, sidewalks and ramps
  • Inspect the whole exterior of your building-including any portico spaces, windows, and pavers. – It may be time for pressure washing
  • Inspect bollards to identify any damage

Parking Lot Sweeping

The regular power sweeping of your paved surfaces pre-emptively solves many potential problems. Sweepers not only efficiently clean up debris and litter, they also help prevent stormwater contamination from parking lot runoff-which helps keep the environment safe. In addition, the removal of salt build up helps prevent further premature deterioration of your pavement. At Atlantic Sweeping & Cleaning, customer service is our first priority. We will guide and work with you every step of the way to ensure your regularly scheduled maintenance is scheduled at the best possible time for all.

Potholes & Cracks

It is imperative to repair any missing pavement or cracks as soon as they are observed. We offer a variety of pothole repair options. Once the pavement is repaired and cracks have been filled, we wholeheartedly recommend seal coating the entire parking lot surface. Atlantic Sweeping & Cleaning has many cost effective options for pavement repair and seal coating. We can help you keep your pavement in tip top shape.

Line Striping

Freshly painted line striping adds that extra finishing touch to your parking lot. Whether striping a new lot, or one that has been freshly seal coated, Atlantic Sweeping & Cleaning has the right equipment, materials, and paints to ensure the best possible results.


Unfortunately traffic control signage at retail locations tends to take a beating and often needs replacement. At Atlantic Sweeping & Cleaning, we can happily help you with new parking signs, directional signs, stop signs, yield signs, or whatever is required.

Don’t Forget The Concrete

Keeping your concrete surfaces and landscape features clean and in good repair will make your facility more beautiful, functional, and safe. It also reduces the chance of concrete issues causing other unwanted maintenance issues. The experts at Atlantic Sweeping & Cleaning will examine and insoect your concrete and give you a detailed approach for repair and replacement as needed.

Pressure Washing

Pressure washing is the most cost effective way to mitigate dirt, mold, soot and other unattractive build up from sidewalks, paved surfaces, and facades of your facility. At Atlantic Sweeping & Cleaning, we use statre of the art pressure washing chemicals that are environmentally safe, and help prevent future build up of mold and grime.

Don’t Overlook Bollards

Bollards serve the specialized purposes of keeping pedestrians safe from vehice traffic, and the building safe from delivery vehicles. At Atlantic Sweeping & Cleaning, we can replace damaged bollards with new ones in your choice of high visibility colors.
