Think about these seven suggestions to assist you take care of your driveway:
1. Avoid cracks
For driveways, prevention indicates sealing concrete yearly and sealing asphalt every few years to avoid water from permeating, freezing and breaking. Tree and shrub roots can cause cracks by rising from below. The option is to get rid of trees near drives or have their roots cut away.
2. Fill cracks
If fractures or holes do appear, patch them instantly. Utilize a masonry chisel to get rid of loose products and brush out the debris prior to using a crack filler and patching compound. After the substance dries, seal the entire driveway Ensuring your driveway is smooth and level may also help in reducing tripping mishaps when visitors visit your home.
3. Minimize water on the driveway.
Clear a 2 to three-inch strip around the edges of the driveway to supply a runoff location for snow and water to decrease its chances of penetrating the surface. Also, 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 permeate surfaces, triggering fractures. Both must be repaired. Instead of salting, use a snowblower or shovel to remove snow and utilize options like sand, coffee grounds, alfalfa meal or cat litter to make surfaces less slippery. To melt ice, think about spraying the surface 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 carefully
Raise the blade of your snow rake enough to ensure it does not scrape and harm the driveway surface area. If shoveling, use a plastic shovel for irregular surfaces to minimize its risk of catching on the driveway. Then, either push snow to the side and shovel that off or remove snow a couple of inches at a time while working your way earthward.
6. Safeguard the edges
Believe it or not, driveways aren’t designed for heavy trucks. Edges are especially susceptible, breaking under excessive weight. So make certain that your car is parked away from the edges and that construction vehicles never park there throughout home improvement tasks.
7. Clean your driveway
Removing spots triggered by motor oil, radiator fluid and comparable compounds affects more than your drive’s appearance. Motor fluids can penetrate as much as a quarter inch in concrete and can soften asphalt. Usage non-clumping kitty litter to soak up fresh oil, followed by grease-cutting dishwashing cleaning agent and warm water. For older stains, try scrubbing the stain repeatedly with grease-cutting, naturally degradable cleaners. Be sure to use a routine scrub brush. A wire brush can harm the driveway’s surface.
