    4. Don’t salt cement

    Cement salt and chemical de-icers can permeate surfaces, causing fractures. Both should be fixed. Instead of salting, utilize a snowblower or shovel to get rid of snow and utilize alternatives like sand, coffee grounds, alfalfa meal or cat litter to make surface areas less slippery. To melt ice, consider spraying the surface with sugar beet juice, which reduces the melting point of ice and is thought about reliable in temperatures as low at -20 ° F.

If shoveling, use a plastic shovel for unequal surfaces to lower its risk 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 method earthward.

    6. Protect the edges

    7. Clean your driveway

    Eliminating discolorations triggered by motor oil, radiator fluid and similar compounds impacts 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 take in fresh oil, followed by grease-cutting dishwashing cleaning agent and warm water. For older stains, attempt scrubbing the stain repeatedly with grease-cutting, biodegradable cleaners. Make sure to use a routine scrub brush. A wire brush can harm the driveway’s surface area.
