Consider these 7 ideas to help you take care of your driveway:
1. Prevent cracks
For driveways, prevention suggests sealing concrete each year and sealing asphalt every few years to prevent water from penetrating, freezing and splitting. Tree and shrub roots can trigger cracks by pushing up from beneath. The solution is to remove trees near drives or have their roots trimmed away.
2. Fill fractures

After the compound dries, seal the entire driveway Guaranteeing your driveway is smooth and level may likewise help in reducing tripping mishaps when guests visit your house.
3. Reduce water on the driveway.
Clear a 2 to three-inch strip around the edges of the driveway to provide a runoff location for snow and water to lower its chances of permeating the surface. Likewise, make sure that downspouts empty into the lawn instead of onto the driveway.
4. Do not salt cement
Cement salt and chemical de-icers can penetrate surfaces, causing fractures. Both need to be repaired. Rather of salting, use a snowblower or shovel to get rid of snow and utilize options like sand, coffee grounds, alfalfa meal or kitty litter to make surface areas less slippery. To melt ice, consider spraying the surface area with sugar beet juice, which lowers the melting point of ice and is considered efficient in temperature levels as low at -20 ° F.
5. Plow carefully
Raise the blade of your snow rake enough to ensure it does not scrape and damage the driveway surface area. If shoveling, utilize a plastic shovel for irregular surface areas to decrease its threat of capturing on the driveway. Then, either push snow to the side and shovel that off or eliminate snow a couple of inches at a time while working your way earthward.
6. Secure 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 and that construction vehicles never ever park there during home improvement tasks.
7. Clean your driveway
Eliminating stains caused by motor oil, radiator fluid and comparable compounds impacts more than your drive’s appearance. Motor fluids can penetrate approximately a quarter inch in concrete and can soften asphalt. Usage non-clumping cat litter to take in fresh oil, followed by grease-cutting dishwashing cleaning agent and warm water. For older stains, try scrubbing the stain repeatedly with grease-cutting, biodegradable cleaners. Be sure to utilize a regular scrub brush. A wire brush can damage the driveway’s surface.
