With so many choices and new places seemingly coming along daily, facility managers in the hospitality industry must provide clean, safe, and comfortable environments. One of the largest and most heavily traveled areas of hotels and restaurants is parking lots. Routine maintenance is essential in order to provide a clear and safe path that eases congestion. Preventative parking lot maintenance also keeps parking areas in top condition, which enhances the overall impression of the property. A property’s roads and parking lots are the first impression a potential customer has. Many times potential customers do “drive by’s” of a place they think they may want to be. If the parking lot has potholes, fading lines and is filled with cracks it can give the impression that the entire property is not well maintained. In this scenario, most properties don’t even know of the potential customers they are losing because potential customers drive by and never call. Unfortunately, a property can have the best floor plans, the most updated facilities and the most reasonable rates, but if the customer fails to see beyond the first impression a good customer can be lost.
The right repair at the right time is critical to keep a hotel or restaurant operating safely and to ensure repeat business. That is why it is especially important in the hospitality industry to be proactive with maintenance rather than reactive after damage occurs.
