Let’s be honest: the last time you really analyzed a parking garage was… when? Parking garage maintenance is usually an afterthought for most property managers and owners. Unfortunately, when you neglect your parking garage, it shows. Slow down, take a few minutes and dive into the details that lead to pristine parking garages.
Litter, Litter, Everywhere!
Parking garages tend to collect more litter than other paved surfaces. Possibly, patrons do not feel guilty littering when they are not in full view of the public. The covering of a parking garage is friend to those trying to get out of the weather; it is a foe of those seeking to be environmentally responsible. Take a walk or slow drive through your parking garages at several times during the day. Note areas where litter collects. You may need to add a a few well-placed trash cans to prevent littering. When trash cans are a quick walk away, patrons tend to utilize them more often. If additional trash cans won’t cut it, talk to us about adding day porter services. We can hand-pick litter and change trash bags during business hours. Clean and ready trash cans encourage patrons to use them, rather than the ground as their disposal.
