Think about these 7 pointers to help you look after your driveway:
1. Prevent fractures
For driveways, avoidance means sealing concrete every year and sealing asphalt every few years to avoid water from penetrating, freezing and cracking. Tree and shrub roots can trigger cracks by pushing up from below. The option is to remove trees near drives or have their roots cut away.

Clear a 2 to three-inch strip around the edges of the driveway to provide a runoff area for snow and water to decrease its possibilities of penetrating the surface area. Likewise, make sure that downspouts empty into the backyard instead of onto the driveway.
4. Do not salt cement
Cement salt and chemical de-icers can penetrate surface areas, causing cracks. Both must be fixed. Instead of salting, use a snowblower or shovel to eliminate snow and utilize alternatives like sand, coffee grounds, alfalfa meal or cat litter to make surfaces less slippery. To melt ice, consider spraying the surface area with sugar beet juice, which lowers the melting point of ice and is considered reliable in temperature levels as low at -20 ° F.
5. Rake thoroughly
Raise the blade of your snow rake enough to ensure it doesn’t scrape and harm the driveway surface. If shoveling, utilize a plastic shovel for irregular surface areas to minimize its threat of capturing on the driveway. Then, either push snow to the side and shovel that off or eliminate snow a few inches at a time while working your way earthward.
6. Protect the edges
Think it or not, driveways aren’t designed for heavy trucks. Edges are especially vulnerable, chipping under extreme weight. So ensure that your car is parked away from the edges which construction vehicles never park there during home improvement projects.
7. Clean your driveway
Removing stains caused by motor oil, radiator fluid and similar substances affects more than your drive’s look. Motor fluids can permeate approximately a quarter inch in concrete and can soften asphalt. Usage non-clumping cat litter to soak up fresh oil, followed by grease-cutting dishwashing detergent and warm water. For older stains, attempt scrubbing the stain consistently with grease-cutting, eco-friendly cleaners. Make sure to utilize a regular scrub brush. A wire brush can damage the driveway’s surface.
