Can I just get a wet scrub for my parkade?

Unless you are getting regular monthly or bi-weekly service, every parkade cleaning needs to start with power sweeping to remove built-up dirt and debris. Without this first step, the scrubber won’t be able to properly clean the surface of the parkade. Even with regular service, there may be times where the sweeper needs to run first.

Do you need to clean the lot before sealing it?

Yes, the lot needs to be clear of litter, debris and sand before starting to do crack filling or seal coating to ensure proper adhesion.

How long does a cleaning take?

Cleaning time depends on a few factors:

  • how much dirt there is
  • what condition the surface is in
  • how much area needs to be cleaned
  • the layout
  • traffic/obstacles in the way during cleaning

With that in mind, most cleanings take between 2-5 hours.

Is there a discount if all the stalls aren’t empty for a cleaning?

When the parking lot or parkade isn’t completely empty, it actually causes more work for our crews and makes the job take longer. We also can’t do as good a job as we would like. We simply advise for the best cleaning possible to make sure vehicles are moved before we get there and for scrubbing, keep cars off the surface until it dries.

What’s the difference between a parking lot cleaning and a parkade cleaning?

Both cleanings start by sweeping up all the loose debris with a power sweeper, but for the indoor parkades, we also use a wet scrubbing machine to get the built up grime and help remove odours.

Indoor and covered parking lots don’t get access to nature’s bath – rain. We need to bring in the bath.

Our clients often comment on how much better their parkades smell after a cleaning. You might even be able to eat off your parkade floors when we’re done with it – but we still wouldn’t recommend it!
